Even Billionaires like Mitt Romney have honey-do’s!


The Park City Home Depot crew and I just spent the last half hour or so helping Mitt Romney with some home repair projects. It’s not unusual for me to meet and help celebrity customers up at the Park City Home Depot, but because I’m a political junkie today was a special day. Mitt came in dressed in casual jeans and work shirt and needed some power tools to address some projects at his Park City Retreat. I guess the Romney's are celebrating Easter in Park City. We hooked him up with some Ryobi power tools and necessary hardware accessories. I left work around 4pm and walked out to the parking lot and we talked about the current situation in the presidential race. We shook hands and saw him get into a Black Jeep Cherokee. I have a white Cherokee and he followed me out of the parking lot. His car was not a new model, just like any other car. As I looked in my review mirror I was thinking to myself, man this guy was a serious candidate for President of the United States. In any event, all I can say was he was very nice and just a normal guy. Well this for sure made my day.

FYI,

I don't think Mitt is a Billionaire. Millionaire yes. Otherwise a great post!

LeEric,
I'm sure you are correct, I don't really know what his holdings are. I just found it refreshing that he would come in personally and ask for some help to fix up some things back at home. He may not know how to shoot a rifle, but he can draw a mean power drill....
