Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

TRISTAN ~ Why Aren't You At Work?!

Tristan, did you fake sick today?

Some girl is at your desk! There's no track bike by the printer?

Let me tell you, the key to faking out the office manager is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom. I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you a good phoney fever is a deadlock, but you get a nervous HR manager, you could wind up in a doctor's office--that's worse than work. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then so is work.

If the girl is cute, its probably better than Tristan!

And I like your fake sick guidelines too... I'll have to use the palm licking thing sometime.

peace,

Sorry bud, I'm cutting out early.

You know what they say in the office world, work hard, play hard!

Stop by my office when you get in, we'll have a chat. Don't forget to read the memo I sent out.
