I just waved my hand in the direction of the used rack on the floor , told him there were a few there , and ignored him
guy left after about 30 seconds , place still smells like him

"Sorry, we don't have any 12 gauges with fully rifled barrels, but we can order them."

I know "GTFO" is satisfying on a certain level. But making a jerk go nuclear through sarcastic kindness is very satisfying.

Tell him you have everything but the Uzi 9mm. Then tell him to go suck a bag of cocks.

My wife asked me to to go to the store and get a gallon of milk.
She added that if they had eggs, to get six.




I came home with six gallons of milk.

lol. Depending on what part of Nebraska you're in, that could have been a lot of fun.

I grew up in eastern MO & would assume people were from IL if I wanted to annoy them.

Two men.

One, a gun store counter guy, in a profession known for its fascinating mix of ego and condescending attitude with little regard for whether such an attitude is warranted.

The other, a gun store customer, himself part of a breed of man known far and wide for its unpredictability and often profound ignorance of that for which they are shopping.

When derp collides.

I am also not surprised... if there were no consequence.

But that's not life, every action has a consequence.

Should have been the first post cause it nailed it.

I see a gun shop that lost a potential sale because the guy behind the counter did not act in the best interests of the gun shop.

He let ego/arrogance get the better of him.

How is politely asking if he was looking for a shotgun only to be cut off profanely was a product of ego/arrogance? ( granted infection is lost in the written word but my tone was friendly and cheerful like it is to everyone that walks in)
