Why I hate my LBS's, Part MCXVIII (Or, "Nipple talk")

Why I hate my LBS's:

When you send someone out to get the 100 silver spoke nipples you had the shop order from J&B a week ago, they come back holding a box of black spoke nipples - with a $30 price tag on them.





I wonder if the shop is playing a gag on me. No, it wasn't part of the April Fool's plan.

-Lord Helmet

I love nipples. Especially the long ones.

Seems like a pretty good deal, 100 nipples for $30.
I once paid that much for only two pink ones!

THIS THREAD IS GOING DOWNHILL FAST

Oh BTW, $30 is over priced I knew a place down at Hunt's Point NY where you could get the same (actually a combo) for $20.

Use your new Immoderator powers to transform the black nippes to silver. Yeesh! I thought you would have figured that out by now.

Seems high priced for sure, but come on, you made the choice to pay it!

Did you ask about cost before they ordered it? Do they have a habit of charging high prices?

Correction: I was the fool to send someone out to pick it up for me - I ordered silver ones, after all.

Unfortunately not. They aren't generally known for excessive prices.
