Every now and then, I see people suggesting one should proffer a pack of biscuits to get some basic work done by their LBS. Yet, I am fairly sure, if I tried this tactic in my local bike shop they would look at me like I was some kind of nutbag offering them jaffa cakes instead of cash.
Am I alone in not having witnessed/partaking in this biscuit based economy? Is it a northern thing, perhaps? ...or is it just a rumour started by McVitie's, and we are being manipulated by the Biscuit Lobby?
