Ahhhh, I miss the days of people like that coming into the shop. I remember the one dude who had a flat in addition to a worn out chain, freewheel, no brake pads front or rear (material had worn off), frayed cables and probably a whole host of other problems, just wanted us to fix the flat. We refused because the bike was unsafe and told him when we could get all the work done or at least replace the brake pads and he said he couldn't wait and proceeded to argue with us for 1/2 hour about it all when I could have easily slapped on some brake pads and a new tube and set him up for our next available date.
