Only issue with that is that traditionally places are slow after New Years until Valentines Day. Usually a dead zone for hiring during that time. If you want to work and chill, check out catering places. This trime of year they are jumping and many need part time help.

I don't really care either, but it really just boggled my mind that they would slap such an ugly saddle on an otherwise not bad looking bike. Do they expect people to think its cool? Its your regular crappy stock bike saddle, except it has a stripe of fuzzy leopard skin fabric going down the middle. How they think that will equate to sales is beyond me.
