Things that tick you off. Part 2

I originally started this thread way back in 2015. I went back and read it come to find out the mods closed it for whatever reason. Well it’s 2018 and I’m bringing it back. Let’s begin again
When stores offer a certain discount on your NEXT buy. I understand it’s a business practice to get you to buy from them again but what if the service or products are so bad I don’t wanna deal with said vendor/store again. So I just wasted x amount of dollars to qualify. Why can’t i just get my discount now and then?

It’s tough to run a store. Good luck turning a profit. What ticks me off is customers who buy whatever they can online to save money, then complain about their lfs and their struggles

People who ask for advice and then do the complete opposite of what you tell them. Both on the forums and working in LFS.

Just because someone asked for advice and you offered it doesn't mean the advice you offered was gospel or even appropriate.

I've been in this for 10 years now. I'm pretty sure my advise is appropriate when someone asks if they can put a tang in a 29 gallon or if they can put a clown trigger in a reef.
