How to answer a comment like this.....

Ok today we had a person come into our store that was looking around and when he saw our nitro bottles in the display case he said "you know if you hook those up to your car you get the same power with em"

Now I'm 16 & wasnt sure if I should correct him since he seemed to be in his 30s. What should I do if the situation arises again?

Just tell him that it is not the same thing, and that he his thinking of Nitrous Oxide bottles which you do not carry.

If he persists or asks what the difference is explain to him what the difference between N2O2 (Nitrous Oxide) and N2O is.

All else fails just be polite and help him out and try not to be insulting when you correct him.

You have to correct him, just make sure your respectful and don't rub it in his face that he is a moron, and if he isn't an ******* he won't get mad about it.

Maybe it's just because I'm in a crappy mood today, but I would sell him the tank. Money from stupid people spends just as good as money from anyone else.

1. Walk into backroom
2. Burst into hysterical laughter
3. Compose yourself
4. Walk back out and politely explain the difference.

Nope, to must GR. I've been reduced to spastic drooling (nothing out of the ordinary there) and twitching (again not that uncommon) due to all those damn button configurations.....that and a few other things, but still....its just been a long week and I am getting ready to do a 20 hour stretch on finishing the FLASH for clare's site...craptacular!

Should have told him the difference and that it won't work on a car, then sold it to him
