So Im trying to get this part for a customer. Manuf no longer makes it. Simple metal handle on a old machine that's about 40 years old.

I get 2 hits on the locater from the Manuf that searches all dealers inventory. I need exactly two.

First one is no issue. Place in IN had it. Even discounted it since I am a dealer so I can make a tiny bit, which is a customary thing between dealers.

Last one is in Canada. I call the guy he answers in French. Luckily he can speak a little English

So he says hell sell it to me. Great. Im like so will you do a discounted rate. Sure. Great. He tells me the price and its double list price in US dollars.

I sit there and Im like uhm well this discount went in the wrong direction. Hes like well Im the last one with one. Im like yes this is true. Im also Canadian he says. Im like yeah well I am American so is there anything you can do here to get this out of your inventory?

He tells me he will check with his manager.

Finally calls back hours later. Now the price has went up another bit and is almost 3x list price. I again tell him this. Yes its the last one, and I am Canadian he replies.

So, whats the deal. I thought Canadians apologized to you, not try and rape you on a part that they've been sitting on for a few decades.

It sounds like you were dealing with a Frenchy in Quebec. They are not like the rest of Canada, and many of them don't like us very much.

Probably more the "French" part than Canadian.

French people are not Canadian as far as I'm concerned. I'm surprised he didn't say he is from Quebec, as most people from there say that first instead of Canada.


I'm sorry.

is the part all metal?
As in, can you just take the one that you get to a machinist and have them machine another?

Shipping is expensive, but not included in the price

I was going to ask this. You have one to make a copy from now, so I'd call back that French-Canadian asshole and tell him you're going to have your own made for much cheaper and to promptly fuck himself buddy

He told me it was sitting in his return bin, meaning they at one point tried to return it, but couldn't due to the manufacturer no longer supplying them.

The manufacturer hasn't supplied them in a few decades on a 40 year old machine.

He will likely sit with this part until the dealership goes out of business or he decides to scrap it.

I wont be buying it for what he wants

French Canadians are widely considered a scourge to normal Canadians.

No, Im just saying the Canadian I dealt with doesn't have it figured out

Sure he may have the last one in North America, but hes going to continue to be the last one with it for a few more decades.

No one will put $200 into a lever on a machine that's probably worth a few thousand at this point now.

They probably had to pay a tariff to get it in country which drove the cost up substantially compared to the one in IN.

I sell trailers to a customer in Canada, by the time he gets them home he pays about 30% more than he would if he lived here between the exchange rate and import duties.

I sell trailers to a customer in Canada, by the time he gets them home he pays about 30% more than he would if he lived here between the exchange rate and import duties.

I don't want it. The customer doesn't either.

Its a discontinued part for a machine that's no longer made and hasn't been in decades.

So he will sit on it for a few more decades until its scrapped

I'm sorry.


As far as the French are concerned, they aren't French either.

Well, yeah. You realize how long ago the French came to Canada and were isolated, right?

Nope, especially any good hearted Floridian.

The manufacturer hasn't supplied them in a few decades on a 40 year old machine.

He will likely sit with this part until the dealership goes out of business or he decides to scrap it.

I wont be buying it for what he wants

GOOD, let it sit there

Well I assumed the customer wouldn't want it.

I finally talked to him

He said " what the fuck!? Are you fucking kidding me? For a fucking lever?"

In short he didn't want it for what the Canadians would let it go for
