    I’m paraphrasing.
    Did you show him it says 600V right on the cable jacket?
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    Nah, I didn’t think that fast. Plus I really didn’t want to get too involved. ...get cable, get out

    I know the electrical aisle better than anyone working there. People ask me where stuff is because they can tell I know exactly where I'm going to get what I want. Of course, I'm only in and out for a minute, so they were lucky to catch me..

    If I'm in an unfamiliar part of the store, say plumbing, I look for another customer in overalls, rather than a store employee. He's likely to know exactly where it is.

    Same here. I hate it when I ask for something not on the shelf, and they immediately walk to where I just came from to look.

    I often volunteer when I can see that "what-am-I-looking-for?" look on their face, and I give them my easy-to-remember phone number.
