Default Some people...

Just a lil "ugh, wtf" kinda story I wanna share from this past weekend. Went boarding with one friend of mine and stopped by a local store to get me a tuning kit and an iron. She wanted to get a good jacket, so I let her do her browsing while I grabbed me a Dakine kit.

Next thing I know she's ready to buy this plain white jacket that was a whopping 250 and didn't even fancy the regular goodies that even cheap boarding jackets have (lots of pockets, breathing zippers, the stretchy waist snow guard, etc). Told her to note her size and then go shop online for better/cheaper stuff, but all in vain.

Personally, people like that just annoy me to no end, but on the bright side she gave my local store some good business.

Mommy and daddy's money to be exact, and she shells it similarly VERY often. And it was @ Ski Chalet.

Plus I'm sure all of you here know that 250-300 = a decent, complete newbie setup. Or one jacket that's worth about $80.

I think I spent $300 on my pants and jacket combined. I deff could have gotten a better price online, but alas everyone makes the mistake at least once. I bought my stuff with mostly X-mas money so I guess I was more willing to blow it.

people like that keep your local board shop in business...
if everybody browses in the stores and buys everything for discounted prices online, your local board shop would be done.

If local places just stocked up on the good stuff, I'd be more than willing to drop my bucks their way.
