know it all wana be ass holes. /parts guy rant.

I guess you don't understand the business. I'm a parts guy. It's all about cataloging. When you have bad catalogs, people get the wrong parts. It has zero to do with the parts guy himself. We get bad information all the time, even from customers. They tell you its a 99, and it's a 2000, or they tell you its a 4cyl and its a 6. Some people dont even know what engine is in their car, or what year their car is!!! Shit happens dude. I've goofed a few times, but that's in two years. And remember, don't be rude....or you just might get the wrong part I've seen some shady shit happen when customers are complete dicks.

Plus, we deal with morons all day long. Just two days ago i had a guy come in with a brake line, wanting to clamp a rubber hose onto it to repair it. He says "this is common practice in FL, where im from". I told him "well here in MA that's 100% illegal, and you're going to kill someone". I could go on and on with the stories, but whatever.

Anyways, moral of the story....there are way too many factors in the mix to blame the parts guy and only the parts guy.

Getting the right car part is always a crappy affair. I agree with you, it's the worst part of working on one.

I've had parts fiascos delay car repairs for weeks. Most frustrating thing ever.

Yup,sounds normal to me...lol
I get the same runaround sometimes too.
I would suggest that you don't commit to a time to be finished until the correct parts are in hand.
