Great guy

My boss at work is a great guy. He is a cyclist himself, so me and him hangout during lunch and after hours and talk bikes. He gets OLN so he tapes the races and we watch them at work. But beyond that, he gave me a Performance jersey, some Performance gloves, and he's digging around for a cyclocomputer. He has also gotten the Sumter Chaingang rolling. And he knows a guy that knows a bikeshop owner,and he's going to try and get me a better price on the Fisher Marlin. I love working with my boss.

Cyclists are often such tremendous human beings. Please don't ever take this man for granted.

Obviously a boss to be treasured and work hard for, keep in mind your next boss probably won't be like that!

NEVER!!! It is really going to suck when my dad gets orders and we have to move. I don't think there is anybody else in the world like my boss.

I don't think so. No U.S. Air Force bases there.

Well, my boss did it again. Today he brought me a Specialized Airforce pump with a air gauge,PowerGrips pedals, and a U-lock bike lock. My boss is the bomb. All the stuff he gives me is used hand-me down stuff, but who cares? It works, and thats good enough for me!!!

Fubar,

Do you work for the mafia? I'm thinking your boss is trying to bribe you.
