No signs I could see.Were there any signs saying you couldn't lock your bike there? I'd be interested in the legality of this, I don't think I would have been able to hold my tongue as well as you did.
TBH I have no interest in taking this further as it was such a non-event it is hardly worth the effort of typing up my little anecdote. It is only the second time I have been to the shop and I am unlikely to be needing to go again. It was just the pointless, petty, jobsworth attitude of the person involved that riled me. He knew it was my bike and had 3 options;
- Stick his head in the door and ask me to move my bike.
- Wait till I came out of the shop and ask me not to lock my bike there again.
- Hang around until my back was turned then stick his 'official' notice to my bike, then get some back-up from another colleague and wait for my return and try to create an argument.
