    Yeesh, Bill. Good to hear you eventually dodged that missile.

    Her logic? "Well...HE WORKS THERE!!! So HE KNOWS BETTER than YOU!!!"

    To that I’d say, “Then why do fast food places get so many orders wrong?”

    At least they tried buddy, next time you will say not die cast..

    In my defense I did say “AMT plastic model kit” when describing what I was looking for.

    It’s like calling up a hardware store and asking about availability for a specific type of screw, they say yes, so you drive down there and they hand you a box of nails. Sure they’re similar, but they’re not what you asked for.

    It's just a reminder that to the vast majority of the world, anything smaller than a 1:1 is a "model car", which usually is also equivalent to a "toy car" in their mind.

    That’s true, but one would think they’d be knowledgeable enough of the products they sell, regardless of their personal interests. It was sorta funny to see the employee all proud of themselves holding up the wrong item though.

    From now on I call first.

    Even that’s not the safest bet. Called a Hobby Lobby today while on the road and asked if they had an AMT ‘67 Mustang GT or Shelby GT500 in store. They said yes. I came down to buy it and they had a Maisto diecast sitting on the counter instead. Lesson learned. :unsure:

    What is it with this American Obsession with drowning their food in wet, messy  sauces and condiments?
