Default Local model shop

True story here:

I go into the local shop wanting some engine bearers

Do you have any 1/2 inch by 1/4?

No

How about 1/2 in by 3/8?

No

1/2 in by 5/16?

No

What sizes do you have?

Here is a list - why don't you look at that

But you do have 1/4 in by 1/2

Yes

That's the same as 1/2 in by 1/4

No it isn't

lets not argue, I'll have two lenghts of that

Sorry, we are out of stock



And the assistant was...........


a woman

Why is this funny? And regardless of the assistant being a woman you are the one who thinks a 1/2 in by 1.4 in bearing is the same as a 1/4 in by 1/2 in.
