Woman with bike, with indignant look and huffy voice: - Now, look here, I had this bike in for service 3 weeks ago.

Polite young employee: - yes?

Woman: - well, and now the gearing is completely wrecked! I tried to change gears (...missed this part) and it was all wrong! (getting het up now) I have ridden this bike for THREE YEARS NOW, and NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM. EVER! You've RUINED this bike and...

Shop owner, piping up: - hey, it's no problem.

Woman: - ... what?

Shop owner: it's just because you have a new cable. They stretch and need a little extra adjusting. We'll fix it. Takes 2 minutes.

Woman:.. uh, ok.

Ok, so call me a snob, but this had me giggling

The sense of entitlement is world wide, it seems.
