A True Tale from the REAL WORLD …

Today, our Fairy Princess ventured into a local PartSource store looking for something very specific. On the drive to the store she practiced asking for exactly what she needed. Now, to most folks this might not seem extraordinary, but to our Fairy Princess, who sometimes loses words when she really needs them, it was a big deal.

Upon arrival, she recited the words one more time and bravely entered the store. He-man rock was blaring on the radio, and men who knew exactly what they wanted and knew the names of those items were conversing with employees. It was scary.

When it was her turn, our Fairy Princess blathered what she was looking for and why. Plus she added what she had already attempted to fix the problem. To his credit, the nice man at the counter didn’t laugh and paid attention to all the extra details. Sadly, he didn’t have what she needed. BUT, Kenny the wrecker probably did AND his prices are better than others.

Bottom line:
– We didn’t find Kenny.
– We still don’t know how much this part is going to cost.
– The nice PartSource man called us ‘hun’ but because he was nice, he’s off the hook.
– And the best part – Fairy Princess didn’t say ‘thingy’ even one time.
