You're right about that! There was this guy about my age who used to work for the parts department, and he'd be like "how do you know these part numbers and how to look this stuff up?" He was impressed when I told him I had the same software he was using on my home computer.

It also comes in handy because sometimes, if you tell them exactly what you're looking for, like certain Euro specific parts, they'll tell you that they can't get it without even trying. But if you give them the part number and don't tell them what it's for, odds are they'll have it sent from Germany.
