If he hadn't put the full court press on I probably would have considered ordering my tires from them for fixing the flat for free......so there's that side of the coin too.
I sold a lot of tires using the "its fixed but come back and see me when you have some loot for new shoes. Here's a price for a comparable tire, if you can beat it else where, ask for me and I will give you the best deal I can."
Some others seemed to think the "buy tires now or die approach" worked better.

Something happened while I worked there to a kid who inflated an old tire and ended up a vegetable. It was close to the time when I quit working there. The story I heard was the manager told him to tube an old dry rotted tire and it blew up in his face and he was from then on a vegetable. Last I was there, it was a max of 10psi on the changer and every tire got fully inflated in a cage. I remember airing up 35 series tires to 110psi on the changer.
