True story; I went to the plumbing section of a big box store today, wasn't thinking, it was noisy, so in a somewhat loud voice I asked the gentleman working the isle if he has STAINLESS STEEL NIPPLES. A shocked expression on his face but was laughing & so was several others around us. I was probably lucky it wasn't a woman working the isle. But whats worse is he didn't even know what pipe nipples are, I had to show him the galvenized ones so he would understand.

That's the bigger joke...but very typical of what's going on: clueless employees.

Had a job in a rare No-Depot zone in Atlanta, and had to bop into a nearby Ace Hardware for a part. I was searching the rack for a breaker when an associate came up behind me offering to help. I said yeah, I'm looking for a double-pole Siemens. I quickly realized two things: first, my request could be misconstrued as something suggestive; and second, the little associate was gay as a nineteen-dollar bill and was laughing his ass off. I started laughing too and asked him if there was someone else there that I could talk to. Glad to get out of there, needless to say.
