It’s none other than JIMMY RICHARDSON of Southern Maryland Auto Parts. The winner of this month’s $25 Wawa card goes to Wayne Alvey (shown below) who guessed the correct answer. Wayne said he’s known Jimmy for the better part of 20 years and that Jimmy always had a hat on when he was a kid. Congratulations Wayne!
The ladies on the switchboard have a lot to deal with, whether it’s a language barrier, someone calling for their sales person but they don’t know who that is, or asking for certain parts and/or products and we’re not quite sure what they are….. Here is a sampling of calls taken in February and March:
Hello, I need a Tommy Hill tire, size 275
I need parts for my Satin
I would like to speak to Jim
Switchboard: Which Jim sir?
The Jim that answers the phone 90% of the time
Do you knock dents out of cars?
Switchboard: Are you calling from a shop?
No, I’m calling from my cell phone
Yes, I tried to take my car through emissions and it failed so they told me my car failed because I need a fender lining.
Hi, do you guys sell parts?
Excuse me miss, do you carry parts on the shelf?
Hi, I need a tune up in my car.
Hi, I need to order an antuna.
