    for my weed-wacker. Hit the mower/tractor shop in town cause Autozone didn't have the right size. They sell higher end shit in this place. Simplicity mowers and Stihl chainsaws and stuff. Reputable place but a little pricy. Four burly old dudes workin the shop and one lady. I'm like "please not the woman, please not the woman" and of course the woman says "may I help you". I'm very polite and in my most cheerful tone told her I needed some fuel line for my weed-wacker and gave her a little piece of the old stuff so she could size it. She says.....

    I don't think we sell that brand of mower.

    :facepalm:

    I've offered to let her stay in my basement multiple times. I don't think she loves me anymore.

    If it was a part to an iron or a sewing machine she would have known right away.

    :lol:

    Aw don't hate on the old dear, she was right, they don't sell that brand of mower since it was a fuel line.

    It never fails that whenever I go to a parts store I get the most inept salesperson on the floor. I was looking for a cheap torque wrench to tighten the nuts for an air intake manifold after replacing the gasket. The person wouldn't cut the tie wraps (2) so I could see how to use the damn thing because the way it was welded it looked like it was gauge face down when tightening. They aren't under any sort of pressure or danger of warping if not dead on so I passed on the wrench. If he had taken the 2 seconds to take out the wrench he would have made a sale.

    I was helping a friend replace the front struts in his car today. We go to the local AutoZone and pick up the struts and spring compressors. FF to an hour or so later as I'm putting the springs into the new strut and WTF!!! Wrong part. The head was a completely different configuration. After a few minutes of swearing, we head back on down to the local AutoZone.

    After waiting foR 10-15 mins while the salesman was checking another customers battery, we tell him the situation. "Well, that is the right part, it says it right here on my computer." After explaining for a second time it is absolutely not the right part, he tries to sell me a new strut mount kit(s) @ $40 each. I tell him to let me see it. It doesn't even fit the strut they sold me and "It says right here on my computer that this is the right part." I ask to see the strut from the previous year and it's close, but too short. He tries to tell me it will work. At that point I tell him to fuck off, give me my money back and then leave.

    Went next door to the local O'reily's parts store and get the correct struts in 10 mins flat.


    FUCK AUTOZONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not here bra, every single motherfucker in autozone knows their shit and they are so helpful it's ridic. Even the broads put me to shame. I'm not always thrilled with their parts quality but most of them come with lifetime warranty so I could give 2 fucks. I am their worst type of customer cause I keep my vehicles forever. I wore out my ceramic pads after 60,000 and they gave me brand new ones for free. :jj:
