My buddy used to manage a sizeable bike shop in Austin, TX. A guy dropped off his very nice road bike for a simple service. Easily $5-7k bike, great condition, etc. They finish the bike and call him up with the number that was attached to his profile in their computer and leave a message.

A lady comes in the next day and says she’s picking up the bike for her husband because he couldn’t make it. No problem, happens frequently. She pays and they give the bike to her.

The next day the guy calls to check on the bike because he hadn’t gotten a callback. My buddy is on the phone with him and says, “Oh, yeah, your wife grabbed it yesterday. Maybe she forgot to tell you.” He goes, “You mean my ex-wife?”

You can probably figure out the rest of the story. Hint: Lots of profanity, new policies, one guy got fired.
