You're shopping at Home Depot for a specific product. You explain what it is you need & the employee bring you to the exact product. You're happy. Later a random shopper says "don't buy that product, buy this." Which item are you more likely to buy?

Home Depot has their employees do online classes (which I doubt sticks), but they also deal with more customers who have knowledge/experiences that rub off. It really depends on which person comes across more knowledgeable.. If equal, I'm more likely

To go with the shopper. It's not exactly logical, but the assumption would be that they mentioned it from personal experience.

The employee's, most likely. But I'd consider what the shopper has to say. If the shopper can speak on the topic more than the employee did, I might reconsider. Otherwise, I'm going with the person that knows these products for a living.

Unless the random shopper is an expert in whatever you are dealing with, I'd take the employee's advice.
