well common sense says your vehicle your responsibility, now lets say your sick and you go to a professional, he gives you some effed up prescribtion knowin it may possibly kill you, you take it and die, you sue the hospital, the dr, the med etc, take another senerio ; same guys goes to a drug store knowing the meds are not whats goin heal him but make him feel better , takes more than hes supposed to or whatever and dies, who is responsible? wheres the liability fall?

In that case...the Patient. And your point is?

Let's play the analogy game.

Lets say I have brain cancer (flat tire) and I go to the pharmacy(K's) and I say I have a headace (flat tire) can you sell me tylenol (air) and the paharmacy (k's) says sure. I die from the cancer (flat tire) not the tylenol (air). Where does the liability fall?

K's service dept are twats, there was some stuff on my bike that was supposed to be warrantied, but they drug until my warranty went out, so then i was s.o.l

I've only dealt with one salesman, had no problems with him, he seemed like a pretty cool guy

there is one tech that was there before, believe his name is josh, i dont know if he is worth a as far as work goes, but he DID let me borrow a tool to take home and do something on my bike, trusting that i would bring it back...so thats cool of him i guess

but when i took that tool back that night, i had cops all over me in about 10 seconds bc of their badass security system.

Sorry but thank the people like the Mcdonalds coffee lady.
Can you tell us where that's codified?

you still cant see why they wont give out air? havnt you already answered your own question? you scenerio is tottaly diff, however they will not give out temp fix knowing it may kill you, as for the pharmacist if he knew you had brain cancer he would prob call 911 instead of diagnosing and giving you meds,

Wow, if that's really a law that a shop can't put air in a tire that's below 80% full, then I've had LOTS of shops break the law for me (truck mostly.)

So if my truck tires (44 psi max) are below 35 psi then a shop can't air them up? At 35 psi they still look pretty full, just like they might take a little air.
