The magic words

So today I discovered that Home Depot really does appreciate it when you use the magic words.

But they aren't "please" and "thank you" no matter what The Backyardigans sing.

No, the magic words for Home Depot are "baby" and "health hazard."

As soon as I said that, they were all about coming out today to try and fix my sink, instead of maybe tomorrow or whenever their contractors had time.

Wouldn't the world be so much nicer if people really did respond to please and thank you?
