the common public is stupid
i've worked in the autoparts biz for over 2 years now and i'm still amazed at how people find the simplest things so difficult...that and some are just lazy fucks
who knew changing a license plate bulb could turn into a day long task....
i've even showed people how to remove their bulb...given them a new one and they come back 10 min later "could you put this in for me, i can't figure it out"
everyday i answer the phones and people ask for parts they need.....i ask them what kind of car they are working on and i get 5 minutes of "uh....uh....uh...lemme go look"
and when i ask what motor they have..."its a 4 cylinder"
sir the car has 3 different options for 4 cylinders
customer goes outside...brings me back the title "does this tell you anything?"
i run the VIN and it comes back as a v6....
and my favorite is the inbred redneck chevy fucktards....
Me: "what motor are we workin on today?"
redneck: " its a tree fiddy"
Me: "what year is the motor?"
redneck: "it don't matter, they all the same"
^^that reply is enough to have me give you the wrong parts on purpose just to prove a point....and i've done it
kinda hard to put 13/16 plugs from a 69' 350 on a 94'....i thought they were all the same
maybe its because i'm an enthusiast and i know my trucks upside down and backwards.....
or maybe i'm just a dick
but people these days buy cars just to drive them.....they know nothing about them, they don't take care of them and simple tasks such as picking out license plate screws gives them headaches
anything harder than putting gas in it is just too much trouble
i could go on and on.....i've got many stories of utter stupidity
but speaking of work, i gotta be there in an hour....
