Was he ripping me off.....

Yes.

Any amount over $40.00 sounds to be highway robbery to me.

More like $75 would have been fair. You do have to pay for their time, and that includes time getting to and from the location, plus the 20 minutes the actual repair would take.

I don't understand why they didn't just do the job while they were there and charge you for an hour's work, for which $75 would be fair. The fact that for some reason "they had to come back" might ratchet that up, but I can't imagine that they don't keep a supply of wax rings in the truck; there are only a couple of sizes and it's a very common repair.
