If you're working someplace that sells MANLY things, and they say "Hey lil' lady, you think you could find me a fella so they'd know what I'm talkin' 'bout?", go find the male on duty that knows the least about the subject (make sure HE'S okay with this, because if not it could be embarrassing). Watch guy's expression when he says "Uh... RAM? I think we have some. You need to ask Techgirl though, she builds the systems here."
The funny thing is that one time I was at a local computer store checking out a sale special, acting as a sounding board, even if it did involve things she had no clue about, mom tagged along. So while I was contemplating some video cards, and trying to justify the purchase of a new card to myself, an older gentleman came up to me. He'd heard me explaining stuff to mom and figured I might be able to help him. He wanted to get his grandson some more RAM for his computer, but didn't know what to get.
Thankfully he had the specs written down so I knew what to look for and helped him figure out what speed and such to get. I have no clue where the sales person was for the area, he/she/it probably saw me and went somewhere else, I had a bit of a reputation. Not that I was rude, but I didn't put up with people trying to pull the wool over my eyes either and not afraid to call out someone being stupid.
He got what he wanted, thanked me and wandered off.
The funny thing is that when I went to make my purchase, the gentleman was in line ahead of me and when asked what salesperson helped him, he pointed at me. The cashier looked consternated, I was certainly embarrassed and mom beamed at the fact her daughter, the computer geek, helped some random person.
