I went to buy a new windproof jacket but the store owner wasn't in so i decided to wait. He has helped me out fairly often and has a great shop but I want to make sure he knows I buy stuff from him. Crazy? I just saw a show on casinos and one of the experts said only bet when a pit boss is looking if you want to max your perks. So maybe LBS are like casinos. I still buy as much as possble from the shop but only if he is around or I need it.

Well intentioned thoughts but please buy stuff from the staff too. 1, if you shun the staff for the owner all the time they will be less inclined to be helpful, why waste their time talking to you? You only want to deal with the boss. And 2, whenever I take some much needed personal time revenues drop, therefor I don't take time off. I need to get out of the shop once in a while. I know who my good customers are weather I've rung it up or not but. Thanks for supporting your local shop, we could make more for less effort at another job but it wouldn't be as much fun.
