Deer Park Lumber Seeks To Go Out Of Business

Went to Deer Park Lumber today to purchase a couple of boards. I was directed, as usual, by the gatekeeper to go to the back of the yard and wait for an employee, which I did. The employee handed me a couple of boards that were bowed and full of knots. After telling him that I could not use the ones he had chosen, I started looking through the stack for two good ones. He became very upset and stormed off telling me to re-stack everything when I finished to which I replied, "I always do". When I arrived back at the entrance, the gatekeeper began scolding me for "sorting " through the stack and ignoring the employee. I informed the gatekeeper that I was not about to buy their culls and have to throw them away after I got home. I left the yard with both of our tempers flared. I have been using Deer Park Lumber for 35 years largely because I think we need to support local businesses. From now on, I will go to the big box stores where I can purchase lumber that I can use if DPL continues this policy. He who insults customers deserves to go out of business.  (Jan 17, 2013 | post #1)

Head Football Coach Massey possibly being fired?

I don't ever remember any of the Senior QB's hitting someone in the head in the stands while throwing the ball away as happened in the Dobie game, or having 7 interceptions with only 3 TD's in regular season, or finishing 4th place in district, or finishing next to the last in passing yards per game. But with his inside connections (Aunt DeDe), he's able to get his picture on the program front page on Senior Night -- of all things. The truth is that our Soph. QB is no better than the Seniors when they were Soph's. They just didn't have the inside connections. Sometimes the truth may hurt.  (Feb 7, 2010 | post #97)
