does anyone else find the vast majority of people behind parts counters ,wether it is at home depot or a dealership,or any retail spot ,that nobody has a friggin clue what they are talking about .Ex,
Anytime you ask for a generic part ,they need to know what year ,color,make model,date code,the name of the guy who built it, where the metal was forged ,your address phone # shoe size and the last time you ate cherrios .,,,, ,before their DUMB ass can type in into a computer system .
ONly to tell you it doesn't exist .Of course your standing there with the broken one in your hand ,or the empty can of the thing they say doesn't exist .
I call dealerships for parts,or stores for items on a weekly basis ,and 9 times out of ten the moron on the other end wouldn't know thier ass from their chin.You go there and they still can't tell you .They act like your dillusional for asking such a dumb question sending you all over the place without a clue .
Of course there is always the one guy that overhears your conversation and tells you "oh yeah that's pt# 2347gh ,we have that in the back ".
After all the jacking around of the fist 5 idiots.
Or you do a search online and there is ten different versions of it and it lists at the store you were just told they never heard of it .If you don't know what your doing get a job somewhere else ,or do your best to find what i'm looking for ,ask someone smarter .i don't give a shit if you don't happen to know ,act like you care and ask the guy who's worked there longer than your weekend ass .are you embarrased you'l look like a goof if you do ? .It's not like i ask for a counter shaft for a 72 KLX euro model (i made that up) .Nothing obscure .But if it aint in that computer they have no fuckin idea .Just a rant
I'm sure it bugs you too .
**don't get me wrong there is plenty of guys behind those counters who know a million times more than i ask ,they can tell you what wil fit what ,where to get it ,what you need to modify ,color choice and they know this shit off the top of thier head ,,,i love thoe guys,just not enough of em ****
