WOW, you sure are a patient young man Pawan. I would've told that lady that she just lost my business and made sure the mgr knew about it.
Agree fully with the DSter here. If nothing else, you should tell the manager so that he/she knows that this sort of thing is going on. Even if checking the $100 bill is standard procedure (unusual but definitely not unheard of), it should at least be done with courtesy. And the thinly-veiled accusation of stealing is incredibly rude. Ugh.
Agreed, the manager should be told. Followed by some tire slashing.
Haha.. and I should leave some of my broken strings around the tires just so she knows who did it and why it was done. Although that'd also probably meanm me spending some time with a few cops. Well I am going to the store today again, to pick up my racquet and also hand in my other racquet with the same set of strings.. I wan't to see her face again this time if she's there
If she's just as rude again maybe I'll tell her.
About them losin my business however I feel that'd be my loss
as much as I don't like getting it strung in Sports Authority, cuz as Dmast said - the kinda people stringing probably don't even know what sport it is they are stringing for, my only other option around here is the racquet club and they charge significantly more. And i doubt I am at a level yet where a professional strinign my racquet and a skateboard tech stringing my racquet -as long as they use a proper machine - makes much of a difference.
So I dug up my old old Head Edge (the thing from like the 80s or whatnot with like a 80 sqinch head and twice the weight of my normal racquets) and went to teach my brother some tennis. We did some bounce-hit drills and then he wanted to play a set which we did on half the court (between service lines). Its hard to keep his attention for long but I am trying to follow the Inner Tennis way of teaching and not giving him many instructions. I told him to watch me hit a few times and then threw him balls to hit. He already knows pretty much everything I know thoeretically. He can explain what each kinda shot is and how its done better than me but doing it is obviously different. I am teaching him to hit backhand two handed but a few times he swung one handed and I don't know what to make of it. I thought maybe it was more because of his laziness but I don't know. He also didn't adjust any grip on his backhand so, while he was hitting forehand with a nice full racquet face, he was hitting lot of backhands with the frame edge or a deep slice type hit. But again I am sorta, not giving up, but going really really "whatever happens, however he wants" approach to teaching because I feel until now I might have been too impatient or have too high expectations. Now I am taking the "he'll learn somehow mostly by himself with only little input from me" so that at least he won't lose interest in tennis just because I am inept at teaching little kids properly. Obviously he's only 6 so all this speculation and thinking is probably of no use as anything can happen by the time say he's 9.
