Wisconsin 101: Menards I wish I could quit you
SH: It's getting more and more complicated. There are so many places I have to boycott.
Me: Good. We don't need any more stuff. You don't need to shop.
SH: I bought the tree at Menards.
Me: I thought you were boycotting Menards.
SH: I am.
SH: It was the only place with little trees.
Me: That's what it takes for you to violate your principles? A small Christmas tree?
SH: Well, the trees are grown in the US. It's a made in America product. I noticed that most of their items are, actually.
Me: What do you mean, you noticed? Did you go into the store?
SH: Yes. Just to look.
Me: And how was it?
SH [wistfully]: I miss Menards.
