Forty-five minutes later, we're running in circles in the hardware department trying to find these work platforms! The workers flocked to us since we looked lost and one of them proudly told us that they sold the last one about an hour ago!! That's when we called and somebody told us that they had plenty to go around!! We gloomily trudged back to the truck and sat in the parking lot trying to decide what we're going to do now. I started calling stores in San Antonio, which was only an extra 20 minutes away, but EVERY store was sold out too. We tucked our tails and just decided to go back home, barely speaking to each other the whole way home.
Later that night, at around three o' clock in the morning, my husband excitedly wakes me up to say he found some in Austin, which is 83 miles away. So, at the crack of dawn, we decided to pack up yet again, get more diesel, and make the long journey to hopefully get one this time. Well, we went into the store, and they had over 100 stacked up waiting for us. It was way more compact than we figured, we could've just packed it into he backseat of our car instead of bringing the truck. We were very happy walking out of that Home Depot this time!!
Now, it's the next weekend, it's nice and sunny, and our neighbor wants us to paint her house trim for her. I thought it'd be a perfect opportunity to review this hard-to-get work platform!!
