Today UBP will be unveiling a new feature called "Actual Conversations With Real People" in which we detail...well, actual conversations with real people. It's sure to be a smash hit that launches us into the stratosphere of international fame. Jump on the bandwagon now so you can look cool later.
Today's real person is a Home Depot worker who speaks fluent English. If you lived in Southern California, you'd know why that is important to the story.
Me: I'm looking for a tool that will help me pull up my carpet so I can run a cable TV wire under it.
HD Guy: I'm sorry, I don't think we have anything like that. What do you want to do again?
Me: I want to pull up my carpet along the wall so I can run a cable wire under it, you know, to hide it.
HD Guy: You want to buy a carpet?
Me: No. I want to pull up my carpet and run a cable wire under it.
HD Guy: (With quizzical expression) You want to buy a wire?
