Kansas handyman Michael Panorelli was handed a pencil by his friend to mark some of the $117 worth of lumber he was purchasing at Home Depot. Security came running after him following his exit from the store with the used pencil that he accidently put in his pocket. Now Home Depot is doing some damage control to deal with the PR nightmare.

Rumor has it if you write the wrong quantity of nuts & bolts on a bag of hardware, they put you on an unmarked plane and fly you to Syria.

The Home Depot where this happened is in Metheun, Massachusetts. Word around the smoking area my company shares with the New England Home Depot corporate headquarters is that A: Michael Panorelli has been sent a formal apology, and B: The overzealous security guard has been fired.

Since when does a single overzealous security guard have the ability to ban a person from all Home Depots nationwide?

If you have more details to the story, post a link, please. We want to get the facts straight.

I would have to say this is traditional bs from Home Depot. If they treat customers this way imagine how they treat employees. I was a disabled employee and was picked on and had my car spit on and other things because I disclosed my disability to them and then I was fired for no concrete reason....

So I am not surprised that this happened!
