me - what part number are Chevy truck tail lights?
counter girl - do you have the VIN number?
me - no its not really for a chevy truck.
counter girl - well then i canít tell you the correct number.
me - ok hold on. (walk out to my Chevy truck and get my VIN)
me - xyz123vinforme
counter girl - its part number xyz321
