paint matching

Whats up with my cobalt peeps !! Need advice i got a 2in. long scratch on my driverside door from my work at an autoparts store that has one of the worst parking lots i ever seen. and my front passengerside fender has a scratch also . looks to me that it got keyed on the right side . oh almost forgot they both went down to the bare metal. it tried the duplicolor touch up paint and the 11oz. can paint and it does not match at all , its too dark!!!
i went to napa and gave them the paint code which was 95u "ultra silver metallic" . the "paint speciasillist" said that there are 3 shades of my color, so the i ask him if he can go outside and take picture of the paint with that hand held paint camera they have . and still he said that it shows those 3 ??? wtf , then he told me if i knew where the car was produced. So told him it was produced in lordstown. OH. He was shocked that i knew that and guess what ..............??????? he said that it still shows three ??!!! WTF !!!!! my last resort is to go to the dealer . i should have done that in the begining. i called the dealer and asked if they have it in a 11.5 oz. can and the said yes but, its like in another city . i live phoenix and the dealer that has it is in superstition , AZ. sorry for the long thread guys but i needed to vent this anger and frustration , and i need some advice besides the dealer paint . maybe some other paint locations that i can go to that members that live in phoenix, AZ know of that i can go to . thanx guys . sorry again for the long thred.
