Is it unreasonable to expect to be told the minimum labour charge before they do the job, if it's such a small job? Is it unreasonable to expect better service when I've already spent lots of money with them having more expensive fiddly bits replaced (bottom bracket, rear cogs, new back wheel etc)? Is it unreasonable when they originally sold and fitted the mudguard in the first place, under a year ago?
Unreasonable or not I was kind of half expecting it by the time I came to pick it up, so I really should have known better. It wouldn't have taken that long to do myself, it was just I couldn't face carrying the bloody mudguard home again first.
