Douche of the Day: Building a Better Corporate Douche?

Now it might be Douche on Me for going to Home Depot in the first place. For the past few years, the Home Depot Christmas tree-buying experience on North Avenue has been fast, efficient and relatively cheap. But now they make you take your tree through the self check-out after certain hours. There’s something strange and very American about carrying an actual tree through Home Depot on a Friday at 10 pm and fumbling with the UPC symbol on the branch. Not sure if I should be annoyed or proud. But where’s the hot chocolate? Where’s the old guy in the Carhart jacket who knows all about trees? No carols on the loudspeakers? The holiday equivalent of the airline industry bragging about saving $270,000 by giving you one less grape.
