several years ago i refused to ever again shop at a certain downtown source for sports store. why? because when the size 13 shoes i had just bought were stolen from me not an hour later, only to be returned by the theives (without a receipt) in exchange for new size 10 rollerblades, the store clerks, managers and owners refused to help me or the police saying in was my fault. bad service from the top down. seems like that much hasn't changed. on a milder note, i went in to thier swanky new digs to look at some hockey equipment. a clerk came over, asked if i needed help. i said "yes - there are no prices on these items, can you tell me how much they cost?" to which he replied (after seeing that indeed there were no pricing stickers) you can ask them at the counter, pointing to the checkout line 6 clients deep. and then he walked off. to do what? nothing. he wandered.

and i left. this time never to return even for a shoelace.

i hate C****s
