This is a question Petty Sabotage

I once put magnets on my brothers collection of ZX81 cassettes, so when he attempted to play them, they were full of errors and yet apparently undamaged. Can you beat that? Tell us your tales of petty sabotage.

We re-string all sports racquets
So said the sign in the window of a sports shop in Leeds.

I'd gone into the shop which was very quiet with just a young bored looking lad behind the till and was looking at trainers, not with the intention of buying any, just having a look.
Anyway, this spotty little YTS oink comes out from behind the till and says to me "are you goin' to buy them shoes or what?"

Being somewhat offended by his oafish attitude, I decide to play a little prank. I mention the sign in the window about re-stringing and he asks me what I need doing so I say "My table tennis bat".

He looks a little baffled (understandably) so I tell him (with a perfectly straight face) that the sub-stringing under the rubber which is used to give the ball better grip and spin has perished and ask if they can replace it.

YTS Boy says he doesn't know and that he'll go and ask the Manager. Off he dissapears out the back of the shop, short pause followed by huge laughter from (presumably) the Manager and YTS Boy comes out looking very embarrassed which is my cue to leg it from the shop.

(More petty revenge rather than sabotage, but WTF)
