I needed a 40A maxi fuse; the only one I had on hand had blown. I knew it was a long shot, but I decided to hit the chain auto parts stores to try to find a replacement. I brought the blown fuse along with me to confirm that I got the right size replacement.

Cut to me standing at the counter of an auto parts store asking for a 40A maxi fuse for my car. The man tells me that “they don’t make fuses that big.” Even after pulling the blown fuse out of my pocket and saying “yes, they do, I have this one right here,” he held steady that they did not exist.

You can’t make this stuff up.

I ended up ordering one online.
