Default Autozone: "What is a Bosch style relay?"

I stopped at Autozone the other day to pick up some auxiliary lights to use on the back of my truck. When I asked the guy working there where they kept the relays he asked me what kind and what for. I told him a "Bosch style" relay so I could wire up the lights. His reply was, "I don't know, go ask the guy over there". Now the "guy over there" I recognized as someone who has worked there for years. I asked him the same question and he told me "I don't know what you mean by "Bosch Style" relay. Hmmmmmm.....really?? I explained to him that I wanted to wire the lights through a 4 or 5 pin relay and have them triggered by the reverse lights and he looked at me like I had three heads! I finally just gave up, put everything that was in my hands back on the shelf and left the store. Now granted, I admit I am no mechanic and maybe didn't know the exact terminology but you would have thought I was asking for something out of the ordinary. I mean, even if they didn't have one (which I would find extremely hard to believe), shouldn't he have at least known what I was talking about??? Good help is hard to find I guess.....
