Open letter to Lowe’s

Dear Lowe’s,

I do believe your staff is under trained. I keep hearing about how so many of your staff will ignore a woman who is shopping only to ask a nearby male (adult, teen, or whatever) if they need help.

Believe me, when I am shopping with my husband in tow, he’s there merely for pretty.  I do the work around here or I hire someone to do it.

This is not the 1950s.

Women do electrical work, plumbing, dry walling, tile setting, and any other job a man can do.

More women do yard and home repair work than ever before mainly because we’re our husband’s caregivers, we’re single mothers, we are widows. We outlive our men.

Train your staff. teach them that a woman will spend as much or more in the store as a man especially when treated like an equal and not like a 1950s trophy wife.

Also remember that women talk about places that treat us like second class citizens. We tend to avoid those businesses and tell our friends to avoid them too.


Me and every other woman who is tired of this crap.
