Angry Uneducated people in local smoke shops

I recently went into a local smoke shop and they had 100g's of sb for 24.99 and when I asked why it was so expensive, the person behind the counter told me the good thing about it was that when your done you can reuse the can and buy diff brands in the box so it would be cheaper in the future.... I can't help but laff about this, I mean basicly he was trying to sell me on the fact that it works like tupperware after the fact... lol... That and not to mention if your buying sb your most likly looking to smoke that and not diff brands...

Im sure we all have delt with morrons in local shops and I thought It would be fun to share our experences in a thread...

Actually, I'd call him a genius if he's getting people to buy 100gs of sb from him.

lol, I know i was wondering how it actually sells for that price but I guess if you don't know any better, I mean if you go to a hookah bar its at least $15 so I could see if you didn't know anybetter it would seem like a good deal.

some are but this place i go to is called USA tobacco and that guy is awesome, like he doesnt smoke much, but after me and my friend kept going it for some tobacco he figured we knew what we were doing, we even got him to stock CH Coals cause we said no one had any go nats around which was true so he did, and he is somehow always ahead in SB flavors, when i used to smoke them of course now i need to get him to stock tangiers!!

The hookah bar I used to go to had the worst employers ever! One time when I went there the shisha was packed in a grapefruit but it was like over flowing like tangiers style but x3 lol, it was so over packed that the 500 coals they put on it would just fall off and wouldnt you know it.. the first hit had no smoke but was harsher than anything I ever tasted in my life and they are just smiling at me saying it is good.

If you want something done right you got to do it yourself.

I have only 2 local smoke shops and only 1 of them sell starbuzz 100g's and they sell that for 20 bucks. Its funny too because I've been in there when people go in there and buy 2 or 3 tins of that stuff and I just shake my head.

That same place sells 50g Hookah-Hookah for 7 bucks!

I guess were somewhat lucky down here because they have 50 gram tins of Hookah-Hookah for like 3 bucks and 50 grams of AF for $2.80. But they have no variation in flavors or brands. They are all terrible. Sorry Hookah-Hookah, but I hate you.

i was at the mall the other day and i walked into a store called "101 hookah"
me and the guy ended up having an arguement in which he said chinese hookahs were better then any egyptian
i told him there was no way since his hookahs were all literally generic egyptian hookahs priced at 70+ each
so he looks me straight in the eye and says "im egyptian i should know. egyptian hookahs all suck"
lol

There is not a single shop around me worth my time.

The best place is 50g Nahkla for $11.99 (CND, about $10US). And has 250g tub for 29.99CND (like $26US). So crazy I can spend 1 third of that price buying online WITH shipping and duties included.
The rest of places usually sell cheap Soex etc for ridiculous prices.

The places by me always INSIST "Ahhh yes these coals are the best *points toward the dodo quicklights*. Ahhh yes this is the most popular flavor *pokes Al Waha Cherry.

Me: How often do you smoke hookah?
Him: No, I have never smoked in my life.

I found most people in my area don't even recognize brands, they simply label flavors as if they are all equally the same. It's sad

Recently found 250g starbuzz stocked in a liquor store in my town for 14.99. Stoked on that.

And I could also get the 100g container for $11 from a different smoke shop.

The one thing that sucks though is that all the smoke shop owners are related somehow. They are all brothers or brothers thru marriage, it is just insane. And there are like 8 smoke shops in my town. All of them carry the same tobacco too (mainly starbuzz and this cheap nasty brand called "Splash"). I been wanting to try Fantasia for awhile now but I just cant find it and tobacco is expensive online and I will never order tobacco online unless I could get a ridiculously good deal.

tobacco is cheaper online than in local stores usually... and if you want something they dont carry, then go online!

My local/usual shop sells Soex, Afzal, Havana, Starbuzz, Al-Waha, Fantasia and that's about it. 250g are 25.00 for SB and 100g is 12.50. It's a bit high, but since I've got overstock from blowing my SB load the first time I bought my bambino.
