I found this on another site, and thought it was funny.: Years back, I walked into a bigger store in NYC with all intentions of buying a vintage Les Paul. After being ignored for 20 minutes (which was almost nice), I finally grabbed a salesperson and told him I was interested in the '54 Gold Top, pointing to high above the salesfloor. He said, "You mean the '56?" No, the '54, with the wrap tailpiece. He then proceeded to 'school' me on what the vintage was of the guitar. I knew the difference between a '54 and a '56. Instead of arguing with him, I walked over to his manager, showed the man the bank envelope I had containing $6000, and explained he'd lost out on a sale because his staff were rude, and more importantly, ignorant to vintage gear. And then told the prick on the floor to go %$#@ himself. Best money I never spent in a music store.
