We went out of town on an errand, and happened to pass by a shop with big words in the window, "06's are here!", along with the names of Ellsworth, Independent, Moots and Titus. Never before having seen any shop like this in MY area, decided to go back and drool over what I can't have. I go in and immediately I am approached by a real nice guy, very informative, and seemed genuine. I didn't want to waste his valuable time or take from other perspective buyers, so I explained that I was just dreaming. His shop was wonderfully equipped, and maybe in the future, one day, some time, NOT NOW, I might be able to come back again with some seriousness. He tells me to wait right here, he has to show me something special from the back.
He comes out with a bike about my size. It's an Ibis Mai Tai. He starts to tell me about it's features, how great this bike is, that he has 20 of them in the back, blah blah. I remembered that I read here that Ibis went out of business and that they are coming back, so when I mentioned this, he got even more aggressive!
Next thing you know, I'm slowly backing out of the store, him following me, urging me to take the bike out for a spin. No, not now, thank you, (as I turn toward the car) I appreciate your time, but maybe later...he kept telling me to come back because I'm missing out on this wonderful bike..............don't leave, we can make a deal.............!!!! Hey lady! Let me give you my card!!!!!!!!
Was he trying to dump a bad bike on me or was he really trying to sell me *something special*?
