Six hardware stores

And none with the parts I need. Home Depot sold me flexible tube for plumbing that uses a crimper and little metal rings to hook plumbing together. But Home Depot is an hour away, so when the little rings were all gone, I took pot luck and looked for them at the local hardware stores--all six of them. Well truthfully, one of these stores is really a pipe store, which doesn't change the fact that not one other store carried the rings that get crimped to poly pipe. Some of the attendants in these stores looked at me sideways, like. How antiquated.

It makes you wonder why this might be.
