Actually, I don;t expect salesdroids to know much (if any) electronics.
All I really need them to be able to do is get me the bits I ask for,
I'll give them the stock numbers, etc. Alas they often fall down doing

What I _don't_ expect them to do is give bad advice. They may not be able
to kelp me, they may not know the answer to the question. There's nothing
wrong in that. But to give incorrect, potentially damaging or dangerous
advice is not acceptable.
