I Need a Hoe

Today, I strolled through Menard's, looking for a hoe. They had hoes on sale, and I'm always down for a cheap hoe. I walked up and down the aisles, but couldn't find a damn hoe anywhere. Just when I thought there wasn't a damn hoe in the sto', I found an employee. He was white, with white hair and looked to be about 55. I asked him where I could find the hoes that were on sale. He gave me a blank look. "Your ad says you have hoes on sale." Still looking blankly. "No hoes today?" Finally, a look of recognition. "Oh! Hoes! You mean like a garden hoe?" he asked, pantomiming garden hoe use. "Yeah," I say, "a garden hoe." He showed me where all the hoes where. I took the cheapest one. True story.

Too funny. He was probably thinking:

What??? We have HO'S on sale?? How come no one told me about this!

That is too funny. 15 years ago that never would have happened.

This kinda shit only happens to Jimmy. And I've known him a long time.....

I would get the old guy that would say: "Downtown, son."

Steph: You are officially on the hoe mailing list. Heh.

Tree: True. Does that mean we're advancing or retreating?

Davis: Yes, I must not look like the kind of guy who shops for hoes.

Fletcher: Has the soil gone a little sour in your garden? Perhaps a rainbow sprinkler might help?

Kristin: Wow! Didn't know you had a hoehouse in your garage. I'll know who to call. You're like the Heidi Fleiss of garden tools.
