It's oddly comical that the picture being painted is of bicycle mechanics gleefully drinking beer and giving preferential treatment to a cadre of bribers, while other customers are ignored and ridiculed. In every shop I have ever worked at in my 59 years, we have prided ourselves on getting every customer their bike back when it was promised. The occasional tip was given and received with appreciation, but no quid-pro-quo relationship was ever implied or practiced. But I'm under the impression that a few of our more vocal members here don't have any idea how the service industry actually works. All would benefit from spending a year in retail or restaurants, if only to raise their own consciousness. Not holding my breath on that, however.
