Hahah, well I had something like that. I am in the automotive department alot at walmart...and so these people are asking the walmart associate about oil and whats the best oil for their lesabre. So hes leading them off in some tangent about how you should always use a thicker oil than whats recommended. Ummm. no. So I butted in..quickly...and told them what they REALLY needed. He kept telling me no and I said if they didn't believe me that I'd have a 3 way call going with 2 3800 gearheads telling this ******* off So my question from them was...you work here? No. They didn't believe me. So then they asked that guy...why DO you work here? yeah.

SO, for the stupidest question. Lets see here. Hmm not really a question..but...scary. lmao

I got a call from one of my customers about a computer that I had just recently spent two hours explaining fully how to use. So I get that call...about 3 hours later, and they call me..FREAKING OUT, "OMG, I just dropped my mouse and someone had installed a killer laser in it!!! ITS FLASHING A BRIGHT LASER RAY AT ME!!!! ITS TRYING TO KILL ME" (yes they were totally serious) "I told them, yes, this is a laser guided mouse, that is how it tells the computer where the mouse is." "BUT THERES NO WIRE COMING FROM THE MOUSE" Yeah...umm, I'll leave it at that, you know where it ends Scares me theres people like that out there.

"Could you tell me a state on the east cost"
Me: Come on you know at least one state on the east cost. What do you think is a east cost state.
"Wyoming"

He was dead serious.

Was out one day last year working on my old '94 SSEi. I am under the hood and hear a "excuse me". I bumped my head on the grille and looked up, it was this guy standing there, that was just walking down the street. He asks me "Is this Sipple Ave?" Well me standing there with a guy that just randomly walks up, I say "Yes... what possessed you to walk over here and ask me?" He replies "Oh I just wanted to comfirm that it was". And he walked away. Never saw him again.

Guy : "Cooney, what would cause a car to vere to the right or left on an uneven road? Like if the road slopes to the left and the car goes to the left."

Me : "Umm.... Gravity?"

Guy : "Ohh. Good point."

Well while Bill (boosty) was up here, we tore up plattsburgh a little. I went in the get pizza and the guy in there was like. "Do you know there is something wrong with your powersteering pump'? I was like uhhhhh..... He cuts me off "yea we heard it when you went by eariler and it sounds bad (guy is serious as can be), you should really fix it because that car looks good"... or something very similar to that. I was like yea... i will get it looked at.



What a classic. I laughed pretty hard and went and told boosty and he got a chuckle lol
