So the other day I went to Advanced Auto to buy an air filter ( I recommend K&M by the way. Washable and saves hundreds in the long run. Plus they are top notch ) where was I. So anyways I have my Manti jersey on feeling a little bit of the swagger left from knocking off OU and I get up to the register to pay and the cashier looks at me and says " Notre Lame huh?" "You guys are getting lucky this year." Me being the kind to not always listen ask "Huh?" And he says " Notre Dame should have lost half their games this year."
I was so dumbfounded I just stared at him for like 10 seconds. I finally made my brain work again and I dropped the air filter on the counter and gave him the best feeling GO IRISH of my life. I am now a happy Auto Zone customer that's across the street. I hope he watched me drive there. Jerk.

Even if you hate the team your customer is wearing you never say a word about them. Don't want the kid fired but he is the worst possible employee in that type of role; he might as well said Obama/Romney sucks to someone with their respective bumper stickers on their car.
If you are passionate enough about your team to wear a jersey, you are probably passionate enough to stop patronizing businesses that say negative things about them.
Better man that me.. I would put that air filter up his sideways.

He probably graduated from tOSU cum laude
Similar thing happened to me at The Finish Line. Buying my sons basketball shoes, the guy told my son who was wearing an ND sweatshirt, "you must be a new fan like most ND fans". Then said similar things about winning games they should't have. We politely left the store & spent our $150 at Dick's.
This was at a mall, so on our way back by the store my son looked in the store, saw the guy, & raised the shoe box in the Dick's bag.

The sad truth is probably neither dumb a$$
cares if they sell anything.
Since profits and commissions are evil,
both are probably on straight salary.

This isn't a math test, passion has a funny of trumping logic.
Run the ball.
Stop the run.
You win, or lose, up front.
SMH... You should have asked him what his team was. Then proceded to rag on him on his team, then you should have paid with a credit card and signed something smart ass.
Or you could have made fun of his station in life.
