I read the post about the rims,and saw some of you have had some bad experinces with parts counter "people"(it used to be "counterMAN,until some of them grew boobs!)--being a former counterman,I enjoy hearing horror stories about the ones who dont know jack--or are just plain lazy,and want to do as little as possible for as much money as possible!--thanks to guys and gals like them,the stores I worked at were always very busy--too bad they didnt pay us what we deserved though-- We made the owners of those stores very rich,but we got very little of the pie..but at least we got the satisfaction of knowing we could figure out what people wanted,without knowing every serial number,production date,etc--all that is due to the computer being the brains of the outfit instead of the human (chimp?) pushing the buttons now..and most stores I go too dont have catologs anymore,if they do they never use them,Napa and a few other places are the only ones that still use and know how to read them here....it used to be the bosses would say "dont let them leave till you figure out what they need,and sell it to them"--now its "I'm sorry,the computer doesnt list that part"---and the blank stare.. If I said we didnt have something,my boss would grill me,"did you look in this brand?,that brand?"--he had 7 different lines of oil filters in the same store!-Wix,Fram,Purolator,Baldwin,Group 7,Worldparts,and some cheesy 1.99 brand (TVI?)--so if I ever said we didnt stock a certain filter,he'd either make me look dumb when he found it in one of the other brands,or he'd add it to his inventory!--We had filters in stock the warehouse had to special order!(mostly because this is cranberry bog country,and those growers cobble together some pretty strange rigs to pick the berries)..Now its "We dont have that,we can special order it to be here in a week,if you pay in full today--and NO refunds if its the wrong part!--at least we'd take it back with a handling charge.... So lets hear some more parts counter stories!--I know you guys must have at least a few! We have a few female parts persons in our local stores--some are smart as whips,but not exactly femminine,and some are very good looking,but cant look up squat--but they are the most popular!--One time at a store where a nice "partsbabe" works,a guy kept asking her for lug nuts for his truck for about 10 minites--I was a few aisles away,and overheard the conversation-the lug nuts were loose in boxes under the counter,and she had to bend over to reach them--after the guy looked at every lug nut and walked out,she let out a disgusted sigh--she said,"I dont think he was looking for lug nuts at all"--she was partly right--her low cut shirt was the main attraction if you ask me!
