Pine, Whatever

, , , | Right | June 13, 2020

I work in the lumber department.

Customer: “I like the way this board looks, but do you have any without any knots in them?”

Me: “There are the premium boards down at the front of this aisle.”

Customer: “Those are too expensive. I just want a board like this without any knots in it!”

Me: “Sir, it’s wood. Furthermore, it’s pine. Even the premium boards are going to have some knots in them. If you’re looking for something that works like wood but doesn’t have any knots, might I suggest MDF?”

Customer: “I hadn’t thought of that. Thanks!”
