O/T...Fun with Partskids...

Thought I'd share a funny story;

Went into Advanced Auto a while back (not my normal haunt, it was Sunday, they were open, needed some oil)
While checking out I asked the Parts Kid how much they sell Ranch 5000s for an 84 CJ7 for...
Here is our conversation:

Me: "How much are Rancho Rs5000's for a Stock height CJ7?"
Partskid: "Thats a Ford right?"
Me: "Uhh, no"
Partskid: "What year is it?"
Me: "1984"
Partskid: "My computer doesn't show a 1984 Ranchero"
Me: "Isn't that odd!?? Well good thing I dont have one of those then"
Me: "Well, do you have Rancho RS5000s for an 84 CJ7?"
Partskid: "Thats a Jeep right?"
Me: "Far as I know."
Partskid: "We don't sell Rancho Shocks here."
Me: "Okay, well I guess I'll go someplace else, hey, you got a minute?
Partskid: "Sure"
Me: "Come here, follow me...."
(Me and Partskid go to the door, where plastered on the door is a BIG sign, bragging Rancho Shocks Sold Here!"
Me: "Whats that sign say?"
Partskid: "Uh..."
Me: "Have a good day"

I dont make a habit of giving anyone in the customer service business a hard time, it really is tough work dealing with the public everyday, this one just cracked me up....

Don't worry about giving him a hard time, the kid prolly forgot that conversation 2 minutes after you left.

This was the same kid that asked my dad if his vette was diesel, cause his computer showed one.
