128. I see a lot of contractors doing it. I'm pretty sure HD's policy is pretty hands-off till you leave....
But there is always this:

A couple years ago, I read an article about a contractor "banned for life" from HD for "stealing" a carpenter's pencil. I think they have them at the register for $.29 cents.

In fact, here is an old article. It appears they apologized. Speaking of PR disasters:

METHUEN, Mass. -- Home Depot Inc. has apologized to a carpenter who was banned by the chain after he absent-mindedly pocketed a pencil sitting next to a cash register.

Michael Panorelli, 51, of Lawrence, was accused of shoplifting from the Methuen store last Thursday and banned from Home Depots worldwide.

Panorelli was with a client and had just bought some lumber when he used the pencil to do some quick math. He pocketed the pencil and was met in the parking lot by a loss-prevention worker who asked for identification.

The worker presented Panorelli with one letter saying he was banned from Home Depot, and another advising that he would be hearing from the company's lawyers.

... the store.
