Should I look for a new butcher?

Maybe I'm being a bit particular, but I ordered a standing rib roast today and specified that I wanted it from the loin end. In other words, I want first cut. The butcher proceeds to tell me that there is no loin end. What is he talking about??There's an end nearest the shoulder or chuck and there is the end closest to the loin muscle. Why would he act like what I was asking wasn't correct?
