might think nothing of it, but methinks differently - even if
you're the best stringer in town i don't think i'll be coming back
I submit that most people probably wouldn't care about that, which isn't to say that you don't have a right to or that you shouldn't. I string for a fair number of people, and I'd venture to say most of them aren't aware of a the barcode on their racquet or what it's used for.
But that's neither here nor there. It bugs you, you don't like it, so you certainly have a right to not have labels placed over the barcode on your racquet.
The fact that you'd willingly sacrifice a topnotch string job as opposed to having a civil conversation about where to place a label (which could mean not applying one at all) is a rather telling statement, however.
