I occasionally drop into auto stores like Advanced or Auto Zone to get random stuff like replacement lights, wiper blades, etc. Is it me or is everyone in these places miserable and vulgar? I see stuff you’d never see in a bookstore or a grocery store or most retail places. One day I was looking for some exhaust tape to try and patch a hole in the muffler temporarily and I witness two women dropping f bombs on one another with one behind the counter and the other I guess visiting on her day off while the other employees are laughing it up. I find a good portion of them feel the need to address you as “chief” or “boss” in that condescending way. One guy last week after I asked for wheel covers pretty much grunted and pointed at them and could not care less to maybe assist in getting some of them down from a high shelf with a step stool or something. I had never been to the new O’Reillys that opened up before....I was in the store 15 minutes and neither guy at the counter bothered to say a word to me in an otherwise empty store. Aside from one real sweet girl at my local Advanced Auto Parts, I cannot recall a positive experience with a person in one of these stores.... Anyone notice this?
