The weirdest Rat Shack experience I've had was when I bought a can of
contact cleaner from them, not in pen form, but in spray form. The
clerk wanted to see ID for it.
I think he was confused, it wasn't spray paint after all. :)
I remember when I was a kid, I used to be able to go into RS stores and
talk to the guys there and they'd be able to recommend what IC's I could
buy to experiment with... stuff like logic gates for example. Now
you're lucky if they just have connectors.
Oh well, At least they stopped hassling me about wanting to buy a cell
phone, I mean, duh, there's one on my belt, what would I need another for?
