You actually don't have to be that good here in the usa to be able to call yourself a master craftsman, especially carpenters. There is no governing body (unless you are in a union, and I'm not sure why they would be at the HD during the week?) over masters in the woodworking world. Here in the usa we do not have a guild system like they do in Europe, so the title is mostly self appointed, and doesn't mean much.
fortunately i dont need their help much besides finding what aisle stuff is on

if you are gonna judge a guy who is just trying to pay the rent.....over an opinion about a TeeBird vs a whatever, and you are gonna rant on that guy because he knows less than you ( lol.....) great.
No, we're going to rant on him for pretending he knows more than us, thinks we're some newb who doesn't know anything and demonstrates in the process that he hasn't got a clue. I'd rather such a person give me an honest, "I don't know" than pull that schtick. To most seasoned disc golfers, that kind of talk is insulting.

No, more than likely we're just checking out the disc golf section at Dick's because we have the significant other in tow, and the rest of the damned shopping center sucks because its nothing but overpriced chick stores we would never set foot in.

I don't have that problem at my local home depot, because there are never any employees around to help me anyway. Well, there are at least never any employees around when I want help. When I don't want help, that's when I seem to attract them like gnats to a cow's face.

A few years ago in Durham, NC, I saw a couple trying to play with minis. I gave them a real disc and asked why they were playing with minis, and they said the clerk at target (I think) said they would be fine using minis.

LOL. I'm actually starting to think these sale people know exactly what is up, and are just messing with people.

I'm at Dick's all the time for my kids sports gear and such. So I occasionally browse the disc selection. I found a 12X flat Firebird. It's the only one I have ever seen there. It's always Aviars, Sharks and Grooves. It's been over a year I always check hoping to find another, never happens, just more Groove selection, LOL.

I hate it when disc golfers think they know about shoes.
Just because youve owned one pr of hiking shoes and they fit better then your poorly fitted high school basketball shoes does not make you an expert.
