I know it will pass I just need to vent a little.
I started going to a B&M for the last couple weeks and liked it pretty much, The truth is I didn't really go crazy for their seating arrangements but I enjoyed the company which I think that's what counts the most.
I would usually go to a different place which I like the company even better but I felt it was to cramped.
So here's what bothered me, I understand every one has the right to make their own rules but I think there is something called appreciation.
I recently got in to pipes and was looking to get a nice churchwarden pipe. After all the looking on the net and local I decided to go for the one they had, It came out to allmost $90. I sit down and light up that new pipe and as usual Put out on the table my Diet Snapple. I usually have spring water but I just happen to have that drink with me and I like to drink while smoking here and there. After a few minutes one of the workers comes over to me and says know for next time, you can't have your own drinks here. I asked him do I need to put it away. he said no, but just that you know for next time. I'm not saying he said it in a nasty way but come on, a guy buys a pipe, you want him to come back be nice to the man, maybe next time or on the way out tell him yah know we have a policy etc... blah blah, ok, so 5 minutes later the store manager come with the same speech, yah know the store policy doesnít allow out side drink,, blah blah blah. I asked one of the guys there is it because you sell water? he said yes, they sell Poland spring, the smaller one which you would pay in most places a dollar they want three dollars.
I thought it wasnít so nice, if your focusing on cigars and pipes and they make big bucks, they worry if a customer enjoys his smoke with his own Snapple.
