Ah I just recalled the reason for the hundreds of miles off location.

The MEME shows the happy older couple with the RV and the caption is:
"The kids can't move back in with Mom and Dad if they can't find us".


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

I've had problems with both Lowes & Home Depot checking inventory on line. While I have a "Home Store" when not traveling, if I'm trying to find an item at other locations, I use their map to select a store. Almost every time, when I go back to the item I'm searching for, the selected store reverts back to my home store, or, sometimes, to the store I previously selected. A bit of a PIA.

I've also found that the inventory on line is often a long way from what is actually available. I don't know how many times I've been told once I get to the store not to believe the on line # of items, particularly when it is down to one or two.

In cases where the inventory is low I call ahead and reserve. Did that when my first countertop ice maker failed.. nearest replacement was about 30 minutes away and they only had one so they pulled it behind counter with my name on it.

IT lasted 7 months. Store in FLint had 3, now 2 on display.. I like the Frigidaire better than the Magic Cheif for design reasons.

Yesterday was a run around day.. Starting and ending in Davison Township (Cort and Irish Roads) MI.

Wal mart turns out they did not have any
Flushign.. Lunch and deliver a package to the Moose Lodge (salt and pepper set, nothing about the shakers to comment on (Very standard) but the plastic holder.. Two Moose Kissing, felt the lodge should have one, All present agreed).

Target (new ice maker)(
Mennards (Sprayer for bug spray. 1 liter battery powered.. NICE many in stock, ask at the service counter (Gave her first 4 of SKEW and she pointed me to the right departmet say the correct isle on entry and to the checkout) then home.. Bugs.. UNHAPPY.. Tennant (ME) Happy Very very Happy.

But that's the trick when shopping for short supply.. Call ahead.
Except at target "Staff can not provide product availability information" said the robot.

I HATE PHONE ROBOTS

Don't try and figure out where your location is at based on cell based location. Sometimes it will work off tower location, sometimes it's a central location, other times, who knows. Just put into HD or Lowes website, the current location and life will be better.
