I went to this headshop...
    #3898699 - 03/10/05 06:20 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

electrode and I drove an hour to Chicago to go to Adams Apple, well, we get there and strike up a conversation with the counter guy. It takes a few questions and a few minutes to before he would show us the water pipes. I think that's odd. So we pick out a piece for $120, while he is in the back wrapping it, his "janitor" starts making disturbing comments about my boots and socks, so I just walked away. I picked out another piece, a simple glass, for $70. At the register, I was charged tax, and received no discount :frown:

What kind of head shop doesn't throw in any freebies with a $200 purchase. I don't like going back to stores like that, but they have some bangin' pieces, and I want to spend a few more bills on some good glass, just not there, oh the dilemma
what should I do?
You may choose only one
Ask for a discount on my next purchase
don't go back
don't say anything, and getripped off by coke-heads

You can't always expect freebies.

Who knows though, become a regular customer and maybe he'll let you in on the deals and stuff.

I've never been to a headshop that hides bongs and doesn't throw in a deal.

Here's what we got, a gift for someone and the bowl for myself

The bowl has sparkles, like a snow globe!

Next time demand a discount :smile:

The sticker price on my green star was 230$ but i didn't pay that much.I probably ended up paying half of what it actually cost me and i got free shit.

Next time ask how much they would sell it to you for...if they don't hook you up just walk out...

This is a picture of volate in Boston...you can see there custom bubblers against the brick wall.
The prices range from 500$ to 5,000$

I wouldn't have payed more than 20 for that sparkly pipe, and I would talk to the guy next time you go in. Say "look man I spent 200 bucks in here not more than a couple of weeks ago. I would expect that you'd cut a valued customer like myself a deal on your merchandice. You're not the only head shop in chicago for christs sake, and you're not even the cheapest, I just happen to like your products."

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

Joliet is even closer to where we live. I didn't like the guys at Adams Apple. They were fuckin' wierdos. That place is called "Head Venture"? Or is it really 'evnture', whatever that means.

As you know, I am STAL, but it is my feeling you should have gotten something and you should go in and ask for a discount from those heinous bastards.

that's SirTripsAlot, something from OTD that's always an option in the polls. Never found out how that came to be though.
