Mom!

Every time I make a purchase with my Home Depot credit card, I get an email asking if what I bought "met my expectations". The thing is, it doesn't matter whether the purchase was consequential or trivial.

Now, I might expect Home Depot to wonder if I was satisfied with a new lawn tractor or chainsaw, but I get emails when I buy a pack of light bulbs. Sorry, Mr. Home and Mr. Depot, but my expectations for a pack of light bulbs are pretty low. I expect them to make light when I flip a switch, not play a Bach fugue.

"Did my new semi-rigid dryer vent hose meet my expectations? No! I extended it to full length and tried to chop down a tree with it. All it did was get bent up. Now, I won't even be able to use it to mow the lawn!"
