That plane looks completely hetero to me.

Aisles 9-11. Never forget!

FTA: Rather tasteless IMO.... Oh btw...now I'll never step foot into one of your stores again and this will be sent to the Consumerist.

OH NOES. THE CONSUMERIST? Home Depot can't take a blow that big.

Home Depot: we're dying to serve you!

I agree with the claim from Home Depot. It depicts exactly what they say it does.

Sadly, they got a shiatty artist to do their banner.

This. I don't think the plane looks like it's on fire, I think it looks like they got some chick form the service desk who took art class in high school to make their banner.

/Your panties, untwist them.
 
2010-07-16 04:01:25 PM  
er... from, from the service desk....

Yeah I have to agree. Someone needs to unclench their ass a bit.

Heh. As a former Home Depot Assistant Store Manager, I'm getting a kick, etc. You called it almost exactly. The folks we have make those sorts of banners are the people at Special Services who were the prom queen in high school but got knocked up and never went to college, love pictures of yawning cats and Cathy cartoons. Jesus Christ, she was using the Home Depot color scheme- orange and black. Oh teh noes!

I'm sure that was a great call the MOD got from Corporate on that banner, though. Should be fun. Even more fun, since this is on Facebook and the store'll certainly know who the customer is. $50 says if we pulled his special order history, he's the type of customer who complains when the special order marble he ordered was a slightly different shade than some of the display, screams "DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I SPEND HERE?!?!?"- basically, someone who's learned if they yell and scream enough, they'll get whatever they want.

if there were more yellow and orange planes, there would be less air collisions.

Now I see Tom is following this thread on his Facebook page. Hey, Tom! FARK YOU! Seriously, man, EABOD, DIAF, etc, etc.

Really oh this will be extra fun. I don't have time to come up with something good I have to run to the grocery store for dinner but I know other farkers will be up to the task and I hope it involves photoshop.

What's funny is he thinks that it being on Fark means he's going to get support for his sandy vagina.

Isn't "Alfano" Italian for tool or something?

Hey Tom: STFU and get over it, you whiney puss. Maybe they should replace it with a tapestry of you pulling that 2x4 out of your hurt butt.
 
2010-07-16 07:03:08 PM  
Tom, you're a douche. Pull the dildo out of your ass and calm down.

"WAAAAAH! NOW I'LL NEVER STEP FOOT INTO ONE OF YOUR STORES AGAIN! WAAAAH!"

Dumbass.

I'm getting a kick, as I used to fly out of Farmingdale Republic, right over that Home Depot and mall all of the time.
 
2010-07-16 07:04:47 PM  
um seen it in person, the place is right next to the airport, so close that the lighting for the parking light is on 4 ft poles and gets higher as you get away from the airport.

Also was at 9/11 as a medic

I say Tom untwist your panties and accept it was made by people with slightly more skill than your mom.
 
2010-07-16 07:04:56 PM  
I just want to know who designed the runways like some Hot Wheels Air Assault toy, flinging planes into the sky from rubberband powered launching tracts.

And how cool would that be, really?
 
2010-07-16 07:05:39 PM  
Yeah...I see it as the tail of the plane being in the colors of Home Depot. Poorly drawn and done, but not malicious.

Tom, however, looks like a tool...a self-important "I'm better than all of you and I'm going to tell you what's good for you whether you like it/believe me or not" tool.

/Film reel style picture and glasses...really Tom? Really?!

Tom Alfano has sand in his vagina.

What the fark were you doing in a Home Depot anyway? They don't sell yarn and dress patterns in Home Depot.

/Off to crank up O.S.H by the Diesel Queens

I'm sitting here giggling like a vapid schoolgirl ogling a cute boy who just winked at her from the back of science class after reading that comment.

Oh STFU. Yes you will, you whining maggot.

Halloween banner? In July.

You gotta love the Home Depot "I uh... We uhh... yeah, we are addressing that" responses.

You KNOW corporate is saying "what the fiddly fark is THAT?"

Nice drawering...

not to everyone: don't put a plane on fire flying toward a building for any reason and not expect butthurt from somebody and a webpage about the butthurt.

that is all.

Tom's happiness will be short lived.

I see that you're associated with this moron. Please, both of you, find a hardware store you are willing to shop at, buy hammers and repeatedly hit each other in the head until you realize why you're a couple of idiots.

And she subcontracted to her 12 year old who passed it on to his little brother.

At my local Home depot they have huge professionally-printed banners in the kitchen section:

"You can get all this for less THEN $3500!!"

IshadymilkmanI: He posted the image from the link to facebook. The image is hosted by facebook. His profile says he lives in New York. You twit.

He's the Weenerser on the Facebook page:
"Yup was there with him asked for a manager to ask about the banner and was asked what type of manager?! When we pointed out what we wanted to discuss they said something about it being from Halloween (yes this is now July). There putting a 9/11 memorial into Farmingdale University just around the corner and 12 Farmingdale resident's died in 9/11 (I Lived in Farmindale at the time) Way to Stay Classy there Home Depot"

/you twit
 
2010-07-16 07:32:49 PM  
Which one of you is Tom Alfano?
 
2010-07-16 07:33:33 PM  
ha! Weenerser... anyway, he was the Weeners anything on the Facebook page.

he's friends with them... are you not associated with your friends?
 
2010-07-16 07:39:15 PM  
It's obviously not representing 9-11 because the airplanes weren't on fire until after the crash.
 
2010-07-16 07:40:15 PM  
We should play a game guessing what type of car Tom drives based on his picture.I am betting a high mileage 2000 range Acura that has been riced out
 
2010-07-16 07:40:24 PM  
mediablitz: LMAO. He posted a link to the pic! He must be associated!
Actually, if you check his profile, you'll see that he's the same guy that made the first statement under the pic on Facebook. He states in that he was there with the guy. So, yeah, I'm going to go with "associated"

mediablitz: The filter pwnage just makes it better.

actually, double pwnage, dammit.

Dear lord, this Tom guy is by far the biggest piece of dog shiat to ever walk the planet. The banner doesn't look ANYTHING like his stupid interpretation of it. I wish this guy would get into a plan with John Fitzgerald Page and the pope and then fly over the Atlantic Ocean only to run out of gas. By far the biggest sandy vagina in the world, and I doubt that Home Depot will be missing out on his shopping. He probably meant to go into Hobby Lobby, anyway. What a farking goat.
 
2010-07-16 07:44:53 PM  
Further, that Lenny Scargina guy pulling the stupid ass "OMG SOME PEOPLE FROM THE AREA DIED ON 9/11" bullshiat needs to be stung repeatedly by wasps until he craps his pants, then thrown into a batch of wet cement.

theres no stopping the increasing desire i have to biatch slap this guy. he's smug about the fact that home depot is agreeing with him. yes... you made a huge farking scene. they took it down to shut you up- NOT BECAUSE YOU WERE RIGHT

and...i became a fan of home depot just for this. if creating a "tom alfano has sand in his vagina" group wouldnt make him feel important i'd be on that

/i stayed home from work today
