Mr. Steve came, took the measurements for the all the projects, and plans to get back to us with the final bid. Wahoo!
So, off we went today to the Home Depot to buy supplies necessary for the kitchen job. We picked Majestic Mauve granite. It is beautiful. We were thrilled with the look, and you couldn't beat the price $3.99 per box. Or so we thought.
We got to the check out counter, carts and kids in toe. Rang up all of our supplies. The clerk, with concern in her voice, said, "Who wants the grand total."
I cheerfully said, "I do," wondering why she was freaking out about approximately $275. Not cheap but no where near the cost of granite slab.
I, being the numbers geek I am, already had a pretty accurate accounting of the cost. Or, so I thought. My jaw hit the ground when she told us the grand total.
We asked to review the receipt. Huh, apparently the listed price is by the square foot not the box. Who knew? Well, probably anyone who can read.
