I’m going to assume that if you are here reading these words that you hold my opinion in some regard or at the minimum are curious and want to see what I have to say. Either way, thank you for taking a few minutes out of your day to read my words of wisdom/ hair brained ranting’s. With that being said here’s my story.
The other day I was at Lowes with my wife looking at refrigerators. The kitchen of the house we are buying has a color pallet that stainless steel looks great in so of course that’s what I am looking at. All of a sudden a wild Gengar appears out of no where and a Poke battle ensues……at least that’s what the ambush felt like.
As I was standing there reading the specs on the refrigerator a random stranger wanders up next to me and asks if I am looking to buy stainless steel. I inform said stranger that I am because that’s what we designed our kitchen for. Said stranger then proceeds to go into a five minute diatribe about why I shouldn’t buy stainless steel products. Upon completion of his speech I thanked the stranger for his input and went on about my business. Why this person felt compelled to sway my purchasing opinion ill never know.
At first I thought it was a Lowes team member or one of the vendors trying to sway me towards a different product, but said person didn’t have a badge or clothing that would indicate as such. From what I gathered he wasn’t a contractor either. I was just left dumb founded that some random stranger whom I can’t even grab at the foggiest memory of past random patient interaction felt compelled to “inform” me as to why I shouldn’t buy stainless steel.
After sharing the this story with a co-worker I equated my interaction with the above mentioned stranger to the Kool-aid man busting through the wall while at a doctors appointment and telling me I shouldn’t take blood pressure medication after I just finished talking with the doctor about why I should.
