Of course in today's cars w all the electronics it is expected that you will get a check engine light when doing it, usually a misfire, when you unplug a vacuum, or when pouring the seafoam, or when you wait 10 minutes before you restart the engine as seafoam may have dripped from the intake through some open valves to the top of some pistons.
As expected both cars got the check engine light, no big deal.
I head to Autozone to reset them.
He says you got multiple codes.
I said I expect some misfires cause I just used seafoam that I just bought from you.
He says yep, random misfires.
I say, i know, can you reset the light please.
He says Nope!
I say why not, just click "clear codes" on your screen
He said only an authorized mechanic can do that, I can't do it.
I said OK give it to me i'll do it. (I'm better than most autorized mechanics i'm thinking )
He says Nope, it's the law. (and he walks in to print a list of things I may need to buy to fix my "problem")
Dude, you selling the scanner tool right next to you, I tell him.
Yep, $129.99 he says
That means that I can buy it and reset it. So there can't be a law about it
He says, You can buy it and do it, I can not do it for you or hand you our scanner.

, so you want me to buy it and return it in 60 seconds for a full refund? stick the list you printed w the codes up your
Long story short, drove next block to Advance auto parts and got the codes cleared.
Are people that stupid anymore (ok maybe he was as he asked me what kind of car it was with the steering wheel roundel emblem in-front of him) or do they really not care to help others anymore?
No more Autozone money coming out of my pocket. If you are not going to be as helpful as you advertise, YOU!
I would blame it on a shady auto zones rep , not basically the company itself.
Sounds like he was trying to get over on you.

I agree, he deals with people all day. I'm sure he thought he had you pinned a mile away, sea foam and clearing fault codes

I avoid those aftermarket autoparts stores like the plague. I guess it's being in the business for almost 15 years. I worked at Advance Auto(back when it was Western Auto's Parts America) and did some time at an Autozone. Last 12 years I've been at a dealer. For me OEM is the way to go, and if I need generic parts/chemicals/etc. I get it from a jobber(they usually know what the F they are doing). Stepping into one of those craptermarket retail chains is like stepping into some weird redneck/ricer/nascar/bootleg utopia. Ugggh. I'm all set.

We are all snobs about something. Some people are watch snobs,(only wear a certain brand), some are clothing snobs, etc. I am a parts snob.

AUTOZONE parts are horrible, that's why no local mechanic buy anything from them anymore. Try orielly, they've yet to disappoint me.
