    You know you're getting old when you look at a beautiful 19-year-old girl and you find yourself thinking, "Gee, I wonder what her mother looks like?"

    I worked at NAPA up until a while ago, then I quit because the pay sucked, the work sucked and the management sucked.

    +1 on all that
    BUT it pays the bills

    Once the Shop gets going, I hope to quit (but having medical insurance is nice)

    Word. Medical insurance has kept my family out of the slumbs. Breaking a leg + surgery + many doctors appointments + physical therapy twice a week for a few months = a large sack of money

    We don't have health insurance, I'd be screwed if I broke anything that bad.

    And it's spelled semen.

    The local bike shop around me sucks and is run by old people. The not so local one isn't much better, and is wayyyy overpriced. $50 for unsealed, non-magnesium, jimmy c's.

    Not really, they wouldn't do it. They would probably lose money, as they can't afford to sell products for 30-40% less.

    Other companies probably get better prices from their distributors, hence why they can sell parts for so much less.

    They have to stay in business, so they have to mark stuff up. Our mark-up on USB cables is about 90 percent, which compensates for the fact that we have to sell the printers pretty close to what they cost.

    I'm thinking about seeing if my bike shop has a job open, although I'd probably make even less I think I would enjoy it more, and I like working for small shops a lot more than retail stores.
