I hate you Christmas Palm Tree!

I spent an hour today at the Lowes in North Bergen NJ picking up an on-line order. There were four customer service registers open, one was devoted entirely to returns. Two were locked up with individual customers the entire time I was there. One slowly accepted internet order pickups.

This Lowes has their Christmas tree display up next to the customer service desk and this holiday palm in Jersey struck me as cheesy but funny at first glance. The longer I stayed in line listening to everyone complain and watching the line not move the uglier the tree got.

By the time I got out of there I wanted to knock it down.

Honestly, my pickup at the Paterson NJ Lowes on Black Friday took about ten minutes. I love teenagers but they do not belong at customer service desks from November through February. It just makes adults angry.
