Napa seems to only hire "good" help.
The others hire off the street im afraid.

If they cant look it up in a computer there screwed.
I worked for my father n law at napa for 10 years...... ive retained most of it still without a computer.

I said it doesnt matter what it fits I just want a 2.5" lower radiator hose heater. "Jim" slow to reply say ... yeah we dont have that unless you know what it fits. I hung up. Ps the store manager called me an hour later stating he was sorry and he'd send one out. I said naaa I ordered one from napa and have it installed already....... Few weeks back I called O'Reillys. I'd like to order an alternator for a 1994 gmc k2500 5.7 with air and no air pump. "Bill" what year was that? 1994 "Bill" 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton ? 3/4 ton "Bill" 2 or 4 wheel drive ? Click................ I gave him every shred of anything he needed in my first 30 seconds of the call. Napa delivered it 20 minutes later. True stories from turbs
Sniff..sniff... I did 21 years at NAPA before I moved on...makes me proud

Come on now- like we all haven't played the role of village idiot from time to time.

Mine was last year - while sledding with my daughter I thought, "Hey, I bet I could stand up and go down the hill". I'm still shocked I didn't have a concussion!

We all have our moments...

That quote reminded me of something. One of my best friends from High School, after seeing this movie below in the 80's, started back then....and still calls me up to this day to say "You're Doomed."

I noticed he said it a lot more after I got married.



P.S. You're still doomed.

That's true, but the kids at fast food places have all too many of them and way too close together. Don't try to give them a $2 bill, it will send them into a panic.

As to the Walmart 15 items or less sign with the 3 hands ….There just saying in a polite way to abide by the request for 15 or less items express lane for those that need them as a convenience. I have in the past asked people with heaping carts if they know there in the 15 or less checkout and they tell me in a nasty way “yes”, Now the Joke, I reply… oh so you’re just inconsiderate and stand there and make them feel uncomfortable. I have worked with the public for the last 30+years and society has changed for the worst and SOME people have no respect for man or for themselves for that matter.

I think most of us guys of a certain age remember our favorite auto parts store - mine was a place called "Stoney's". You would in and go to a well worn counter that was lined with various catalogs with well worn pages,usually grease/oil stained,that the counter guy would open to get the part number of what you needed.

Cases of engine oil were stacked up along with racks of hoses and belts.

There was always a certain aroma in those places.

One of my first orders when I was old enough was a pair of 1953 Chevrolet fender shirts.
