The stupid customers daily update.

So, as some of you might know, I work at a parts house in Alabama. We have rednecks, drunk rednecks, potheads, illegal mexicans that can't speak english, legal mexicans that can't speak english, natives that only think they can speak english, several "people" of limited, almost slug like intelligence, and any combination of some or all of the above daily.

Nearly EVERY day I will be able to update this thread with some new nugget of REAL stupidity that has been uttered from the mouths of our esteemed customers.

Today's update:

A customer came in today needing a V-belt for a "95 or 96 Infinity Vision 3.5 liter". The customer explained that he had just bought the car recently so he was unsure as to what year it was. Off the top of my head, I couldn't think of an Infinity named Vision OR a car made by Infinity (at least at that time) that came with a 3.5L, but I dutifully perused the computer car look up to see if this did exist. It did not. He went out to make sure he knew what size the motor was. He came back in and said he was sure it was a 3.5L. I then had to wearily step outside to see just what the hell kind of car he had. Turns out it was a Eagle Vision TSi. I had even asked if he was sure it was an Infinity and he said several times that it was indeed. So I go to the manufacturer Eagle and sure enough, there is a 3.5 Vision. *sigh*. So I got the dumbass his belt and on the way out, after being told it was an Eagle and not an Infinity, he asked if we had any Infinity key chains. I need to start picking up the junk cars I see on the side of roads and selling them as Infinity's I guess.

Daily updates to come.

I never try to start anything!! I only post the truth, what you can't handle it, or is the thread starter your buddy? If you can't handle customer's mistakes you don't need to work with them!!

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

The initial mistake may be excusable, but the fact that he is still looking for an infinity key after the fact is what is so unbelievable. Lighten up dude, for real. Besides, who buys a car and doesn't know who makes it?

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

Alright, look. You are pretty new here, its best not to go around and start insulting members... You talk about being grown up and wise, yet this conduct suggests otherwise.

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

Some people dont understand cars, car makers, even car/truck types very well. Perhaps he thought his car was made by Infinity and it was an Infinity Eagle Vision... who knows. It is sad that people like this are around... but thats just how it is.

I enjoyed working with the public most of the time. There are always those that make you think twice... expecially rude people who think they are the only people that matter.

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

I should have stated it as you did Spector or maybe they will take that as an insult as well. Hey Dark, If you fell I trashed your thread "I'm Sorry" and not intended. I was just replying to a thread like everyone else here, that's whats makes up a forum.

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

tape, i think darkshadow started this thread to post entertaining/funny stuff that happens at work...not to trash people or say he is perfect/superior. The new comment is probably more directed to the fact that you don't really know how certain members are/when people are joking etc.

Re: The stupid customers daily update.

Um yeah, good job there tape. You haven't been around long enough to know how we joke on here. Your mental supremeist act is not needed or necessary.

This thread is for my daily adventures with the public of Athens, Alabama. If you had my job and put up with it as long as I have, customers would start to make you wonder how their parents were even capable of figuring out how to give birth to them. Trust me m'kay?
