Default Brake Light Fluid Question

When I was in HighSchool a guy I knew sent his girlfriend to NAPA to get brake light fluid because her brake light was outHe told her it was getting low and it would need to be filled up. I wonder what the guy at NAPA though when she asked for that.
Any one else have any storys like this?

I worked at a instant oil change here in Lansing and we had this guy who's job was to talk with customers and attempt to sell them things since he didn't know how to change oil at all.

One day we convinced him that one of the other guys had broken the brake fluid filter on a Chevy truck and had him call Autozone to get one. The best part is not only did he call them he argued with the sales rep at Autozone about it being a real part , but it gets better after they hung up the Autozone employee called back to see if it was a real part or not.

Oh yeah and once 2 guys set a XJ on fire.

I used to do installation work. We would have guys helping us from the facilities that we were installing equipment at. On one install we had a complete idiot working with us. We sent him to the hardware to buy us some new level bubbles for our level. The owner of the hardware kicked the dumbass out of his store.

Once sent a parts truck driver out to NAPA to get 50 feet of shoreline. There is a board stretcher, blinker fluid, left handed wrench-hammer-ect. sky hook, and aluma-magnet.

I had a guy tell me that my exhaust bearings were going bad in my dakota. He said thats what the rattling noise was under it (the cat was shot). I think he was just fucking with me but maybe he was just an idiot.

On my Old Explorer (96' XLT) It had a Filler hole for the washer fluid right above the Rear Tail light. I always told my wife it was where the blinker fluid went.

Exhaust bearings, headlight fluid, so on and so on...

I had a friend tell me they sent someone to get exhaust bearings. The store the guy went to listed some type of bearing in a turbo as an exhaust bearing, so they sold him those, came back and expected them to fix it.

In highschool during Auto I the teacher asked "class, what information do I need if I want change my cars oil" So everyone starts raising there hands responding, make, model, engine size and so on, well the girl sitting next to me is looking for extra credit and goes " come on jake help me, what else do you need to know" I responded "tire pressure, the guy at murrays asks for it."

So she excitedly raised her hand and replied "TIRE PRESSURE"

The whole class bursts out laughing, the teacher says "natasha, did mr. jake tell you to say that?" she says "yes"

I ended up getting kicked out of class for the day

Called a parts store once to see if they would fall for looking up a water pump for a 1965 Beetle.

I worked at the Kmart in Rochester, and one of the girls came in one day and asked me if I knew about cars. I told her I knew a little bit. She told me her blinker was blinking way faster than normal, and it wouldn't shut off on her way to work. I told her she probably need her blinker fluid filled. I explained to her how there was a reservoir in the center of the grill and when you turned the corner the fluid would run down and hit a contact that would shut off the blinker. I told her to go down to the Auto service center and have them top it off for her. She went after work, the guys down at the service center, just about died laughing. She was pissed at me for months. The guys in the auto service center, when doing a full service oil change would write in blinker fluid topped off, not many customers questioned it, but a few did.
