Thats when you ask to speak to the manager.  I spend a lot of time and 
money at AutoZone.  But I have built up a friend ship with a couple of the
counter people.  Every time I walk in, I ask about the sale their running
on Bricklin parts. :)  So now they know me.  Yes, I do get some of the
newbies but if they can't help, I'll ask for the people I know - one of
which is not the manager.
