Default Are you serious? Really?

Post up any are you serious moments you've had recently.

Honda of Corpus, I stopped by just to see if they had an S2000 hardtop and if they were dealing on it since the car is discountinued. This is from the guy in front of me in line.

Guy: Do you have a front liscense plate bracket for a 2002 Civic.

Parts: Yes I have two in stock.

Guy: How many?

Parts: Two, how many do you need?

Guy: One, how much is it?

Parts: $9 with hardware.

Guy: What do you think honey.

Wife: (long pause) Ok, lets get it.

Guy: Ok we will take it, does that include instalation?

Parts: no


lol, did he have to ask his wife for permission for the $9 bracket that they needed enough to drive all the way to Honda? Did he plan on buying three and then change his mind? Did he really think at $9 it included someone installing it? Did he think knowone would question his manhood for not being able to screw in 2, 10mm bolts?

Last time I was at honda, the couple in front of me in parts dept. just bought a used car. they were pissed because it didn't have fog lights. They made a huge fuss about how they couldn't believe they wouldn't throw in new fog lights for free. Then they were pissed the fog light kit was like $400....they also asked if it was installed, when told no they threw a fit and went to go find the sales manager. I loled. I'm pretty sure I saw food stamps fall out of my her purse.

Not sure why but I am reminded about a story my friend told me. He worked at Lowes and some guy came in to buy a garage door with glass windows. They loaded it onto a flatbed cart for him and pulled it out to the parking lot. When they got there they found out he didn't have a pickup truck, only a sedan (Honda Prelude if I remember correctly). The guy wanted it strapped to the top of his car with bungee cords. They told him no way in hell they were going to do that because it would be unsafe, would trash his car and probably destroy the door. He raised total hell and stormed inside to get the manager. The manager told the guys to put it on the car to keep the customer quiet. The guy drives off and as soon as he hits the first red light the garage door falls off and breaks all the windows. He turns around, comes back to the store and demands his money back (which they give him). Insane...

I was just at autozone and this girl in front of me told the parts guy she needed front brake pads for her boo's 2012 GMC Sierra with the 12.3L motor. Dude started laughing because he thought it was a setup and no one could actually be that dumb. Conversation after:
Dude: Ma'am. That's too big of a motor
Girl: Well that's wat he has. His truck's bad ***.
Dude: I'm sorry but they haven't even come out with the 2012 trucks yet, so I can't get brake pads for them.
Girl: Well he has one.
Dude: Can you call him and make sure you are hearing him correctly?
Girl: FINE! (acts like she is gonna show this guy up and make an *** out of him)
Girl: (on the phone) I told them you had a 2012 and they don't believe me..........2006? (got quiet) I thought it was a 2012.
Girl: Aight so it's a 2006! You have those or not?!
Dude: Yup.

My father in law once asked me to install an "AWD system" onto his corolla.

Was at Harbor Fright last weekend. The couple in front of me checked out separately so they could use two of the 20% off coupons, okay fine. Husband checks out, now it's wifey's turn. She has nothing in her cart, except her kid, so I'm wondering what she is planning to buy with that coupon.

Woman: Do you have any of those jewelry cleaner machines in stock?
<she means one of those ultrasonic cleaning baths>
Clerk: There should be a bunch of them stacked under the display model. Did you see any there?
Woman: I don't know.
Clerk: Charlise! <hollers for manager> Can you grab one of those jewelry cleaner machines?
Manager: Lemme check. <returns shortly, item in hand> Here you go.
Woman: This box says it's an "ultrasonic" cleaner. Can it clean jewelry?
Clerk: Yeah, I'm pretty sure.
Woman: Okay, I'll take it. Here's a coupon.
Clerk: This coupon is expired, but I'll give you the 20% off anyway. The discounted price comes to $55.99.
Woman: <asks husband> I don't know, honey. Do we still want it? <hemming and hawing>
Me and everybody else in line behind me:

This is why you don't stand behind me at HF. I bring several coupons, several buyers, and all sorts of price matching printouts. At least I have the decency to tell the people behind me they might want to move to another line and I get the manager up there as soon as I can (so he can OK all the transactions, matches, etc).

I don't care if someone wants to save a buck, more power to ya, and I'd certainly appreciate the heads-up on picking a different line. No problems there at all.

My issue is with the dumbass who waits in THE ******* CHECKOUT LINE and finally gets up to the cashier not knowing if she even wants an item that she doesn't even know they have. It's multiple levels of compounded dumbassery.
