I work at a construction equipment dealer in the parts department. Right about the time I think I can't possibly get a dumber fucking question.....the phone rings again.

I work in the GM parts as well. Like he said this is a everyday thing we have to deal with. They need to make one on calling GM and trying to understand some of these people you have to talk to.

Well, I am a Ford parts guy and I can tell you right off the bat... you have to wait until they leave before you can flip them off!

:)

Other that that, it was DEAD ON THE MONEY!

That's why >I< don't work the retail counter. I'd much rather deal with techs. I can call them all the names I want and nothing happens!

Yup. Been with AZ almost 10 years. I thought I was safe not working the retail counter anymore, but the shops are as bad if not worse sometimes.

The other side:

counter: can i help you?

customer: Yes, do you have two 1 5/8" expansion plugs?

counter: what make and model vehicle? VIN? does the vehicle have a/c. 4wd? a/t?

customer: (silently thinking) wtf?

LOL. My wife is a GM for Advance and I used to work p/t for a year or so back in the 90's when I was active duty.

There are some dumb bastards out there. Her store is about 1/8th mile from my work so I stop by everyday for lunch and after work. I tend to help ppl while I'm there. Some just want to make you punch them.

Shit, Try having a guy tell you to wire around his ECM in his Rig because $1600 is too much to spend on it.. (Got that one today) I asked him if he wanted to drive the truck or tow it. WTF???? :rolleyes:

How about a truck dealership where the walk in customers don't speak English. I'm on the service side and get the same thing.

Nice video, I'm saving that link next to this one:
