Went to my local pep boys to pick up some chemicals I needed. The "counterman" told me I should take the stuff I had to the cash register. I told him I had a wholesale account and wanted pricing/availability on other parts. He can't do wholesale, only retail, and went to get me someone. He came back up front, and told me that the person who could help me was busy on the phone. I said I'd wait.
After 15 minutes I left, went to my local Carquest and was out within 10 minutes.
Pffft! @ Patchogue Pep Boys.
