    Not so different in my business.

    “I need a refill on my BP meds”

    “Sure, what’s the name and dosage of your medication”

    “It’s a little white pill”

    Hmmm....

    Never the less it can be amusing .Not too long ago I trotted off to the Stihl dealer to pick up a 14" loop of rapid super for a MS 200T .The cute little lady tried to sell me carbide tipped .I just listened ,smiling .Then the owner over heard it and came out smiling and informed her she was wasting her time .So it just proves the naivety of some counter people in addition to saw owners .

    Did you ever watch some of the chainsaw professionals on here make YouTube video's showing everyone how smart they are ?..Geniuses..

    Something I seldom do is call people stupid, the reason ? A plumber or an electrician could make make me look really stupid.

    Just like I could make them look really stupid if we climbed trees together or framed a house a put a roof on it.

    There's guys on here that regularly call people stupid that would get their ass kicked by a 2nd grader in a spelling bee...

    Who's stupid ?

    There is truth in what Lee said, of course there's always been dingbats from all generations. But with millennials they have a device that thinks for them, my woman is a teacher and talks about how her students over the years have lost their critical thinking skills. The advancement in technology is to thank for that.

    Have people call wanting to sell their walnut trees. I ask what the diameter of the average one may be and that throws em for a loop! Finally ask them if they are as big as a steering wheel!

    Trouble with that is the steering wheels keep getting smaller! Ha ha

    I won't dispute how clueless some saw dealership's are...I think if you sell something you should probably know as much about it as your customers..or at least be close..

    Good analogy. And it happens more and more frequently. Kind of a constant deal anymore. People make zero effort and get annoyed with us when we start asking questions that they have no answers for. We're not trying to make it more difficult; just trying to send them home with the right parts. We certainly hate those conversations more than they do. I also stopped giving a guy more than one chain with the idea that he'll bring back the wrong one. Usually would come back after rolling around the truck floor in a beat up box that you couldn't possibly sell to another person; hence another argument when I won't take it back.

    That exact thing happened yesterday. And it was for a 55, which means it could be either .325 or 3/8.

    Except a 24" Farm Boss. Bigger sword means more power. (Don't forget to emphasize the "W" in sword)

    This thread is great lmao!

    Agree on this 100%. People expect a dealer to be a breathing google and ask “did you mean...” and figure everything out for them. Everyone has to learn what they don’t know. But true jackassery reveals itself when a person refuses to learn and is a repeat jack wagon.
