>>1548421>buy a uncomfortable racing bike for 8000€
*OP and his mommy walk into the LBS*
OP: "I want a race bike!"
LBS: "..okay, we have a selection of them. How long have you been racing in the Juniors, young man?"
OP: "Oh I don't race yet, I don't even have a bike! But I want to win races!"
LBS: "..okay, we have some nice aluminum entry-level models over here that'll work well for you, and in a few years you can always upgrade to a better bike.."
OP: "No! No no no! I want a REAL race bike! Like *this* one!" (runs over to a high-end CF race bike with CF wheelset, top-tier components, and so on; price tag: 8000 euros)
OP mom: (clearly sticker-shocked) "..honey, I think maybe the nice man is right, you'd be happier with this nice bike over here that's only 1000 euros.."
OP: (clearly getting VERY upset, face starting to turn red) "No no no! You *said*! You *SAID* I could have a real race bike! YOU SAID!"
LBS: (clearly getting uncomfortable with the situation, trying desperately to supress his disgust at OP and embarassment for OP Mom)
OP Mom: (starting to look panicked and embarassed in the face of the oncoming hissy-fit from OP) "..okay, okay, y-y-your're right, I did say that, we'll get this bike, w-w-will that make you happy?"
OP: (sniffling, welling tears in his eye starting to dry up, face still somewhat red) "Yes! I want THIS one!"
LBS: (still supressing embarassment for OP Mom, but looking somewhat relieved that Mt. Vesuvius OP eruption was averted) "*ahem* well we should have one in your size in stock.."
OP: "No no no! I want THIS one! THIS one!!"
LBS: (getting uncomfortable again) "It's a little big for you. We can order one the right size for you and have it here in 3 days.."
OP: (Vesuvius starting up again): "No no NO! THIS ONE! THIS ONE! I WANT THIS ONE!"
LBS: (has had just about enough)
OP Mom: (just wants this to be over with)
*LBS and OP Mom look at each other; an unspoken agreement occurs*
