I thought the moral of the story was to tamper with the chain so you could negotiate a significantly better price

Your chain tool must be much better than mine or you're just much better at using it than me

I feel like the chain tool I have is pretty easy.

It's also possible the clip was installed backwards. At this point it's hard to know.

But yes, if you can get a better price without wrecking the bike...

Never ride faster than you can stop
