WTF?


At at least one store in the United States and throughout Germany, Wal-Mart stores are hosting weekly singles nights, where shoppers looking for romance tie a red ribbon to their carts as they browse for laundry detergent, loofahs and, yes, love.

And Home Depot stores have become such a well-known place for single women on the prowl for handy men that it's become a running joke on radio talk shows.

Shoppers agree that the new hot spot for finding love is the local megamart. "A few years ago, when my friend was going through her divorce, I said to her: 'If you want to meet guys, I don't recommend a bar. But I do frequent Home Depot,'" Lawrence, N.Y., relationship expert Debbie Mandel said. "And then before you knew it, people would come over and talk to you. You're looking at tiles, they're looking at tiles; you're looking at silicon, they're looking at silicon; you learn the best way to grout and put tile down, and when we went over to the garden center, there were a lot of men working.

--Ummmm....

You Said

There is something to this. Every time I'm at Lowes I'm always asked questions by female shoppers. Never led to anything like a date, but maybe in other places it has.

I guess toolbelt divas dig guys shopping for tile.

Walmart is OK, but when I want to meet the really hot women, I go to Costco.
