Default Misinformed People

So I went into Lowe's today to get some fittings and vinyl tubing for my custom hose and asked a guy for some help. I found the 1/2" grade hose and needed help with the fittings. I handed him my old hookah hose mouthpiece and he tried finding a fitting for me. He ended up not finding one and told me my only other option would be to get a smaller hose. He then said "Is this being used for what I think it's being used for?". I say "I'm using it for a hookah hose." He says, "Thought so, a smaller hose will restrict airflow, I can't help you with this." He then hands me the mouth piece and says, "Can you do me a favor and wipe that off?" I go, "Excuse me?". He says "Wipe that piece off, I don't want my finger prints on that thing." and walks away...

Needless to say I went to Home Depot and they fixed it all up for me.

In the guys defense, not knowing you at all, there are a LOT of people who use hookahs for NHT, he was just being careful about making sure he wasnt involved in something illegal.

At least he was nice enough to tell you he was out of 1/2" and remind you that a smaller hose gauge would restrict airflow.

I told him before we started that 1/2" is the smallest I would go. I know a lot use for NHT but he couldn't have given me the benefit of the doubt and tried helping me for more than 3 minutes?

And that's the reason we have rules about what not to say.

Oft-whined-about, sometimes irritating rules that many think arbitrary. But the fact is, we're on the losing side of a public image battle.

I find the fingerprints thing hilarious though.

Pretty much, despite the popularity of legitimate hookah use in the college age demographic, most people still view hookahs as foreign and scary. They know nothing about it, so their initial reaction is to be wary and claim they're evil, rather than taking the time to inform themselves about what hookahs are actually used for.

Lol fingerprints. Like even if you were using it for NHT they would be like "Dust it for prints!! Someone else probably touched it! We're gonna catch that bastard!"

hahaha, seriously! That drives me crazy...there are a million other things in the world that are SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED and BETTER TO USE for NHT. Hookahs get all clogged up with resin and nastiness...why would anyone torture their baby like that? :facepalm:

Enough talk of NHT and illegal substances. Everytime there's a post like this people feel they can talk about illegal substances and you can't.
