How would you have responded in this situation:
You're feeling good as you finish up a pleasant group ride on Saturday morning and then decide to stop into your LBS for the spokes you need for your latest wheel-project, as you feel somewhat guilty for doing so much ebaying and mail-ordering lately and, deep down, you know it's important to support your LBS.
However, after standing in place at their register for at least 10 minutes while several associates and mechanics go about their business and do not engage in eye contact with you (no---hi, so-and-so-will be with you in a moment), the guy who finally hangs up his phone and actually helps you informs you that, yes, they have 292mm individual spokes for sale, and they cost $2 per spoke (14 straight gauge) plus tax?
(At least they are DT spokes---the older ones with the tighter elbows)
At any rate, I paid their price. However, after telling them that I had only $40 on me, he took off the tax. Should I feel ripped off? I think I do?
