    New Job

    I posted (stupidly) about a NOS Cannondale track that was in my local bike shop a while back, somebody on here bought it (who?)... I hate you, I hope you enjoy it. Post up some pictures

    Anyway, I just got a job as a mechanic at the same shop, YAY. This is the only place that I could think of where somebody might share my excitement, my girlfriend doesn't care and she is sick of hearing about it.

    i met one of my best friends at a bike shop when we both worked there 10 years ago. we went back to the same bike shop 'incognito' last weekend.

    we are both glad we no longer work there.

    i used to work at a shop too. it was fun, but it was also really ****ing difficult. we were not trained well, and there was not good system to coordinate/communicate between the shop and the floor - which were in two seperate parts of the store. the shop's management was really slow to respond to certain things, and as a result, we were nonresponsive to certain custommers, and couldn't do things for people - which is frustrating if you're the person saying "i'll see what i can do..." plus, being in your feet for eight hours is tough, and so is taking care of customers. it's not all fun, candy, beer, **** talking, and bike parts, kids. it's a job.

    Congrats and props for the new job.
    Headshakes and fingerwags to the Forum "brother" that sniped your ride.
    Search the attic of your new job and seek another treasure at cost.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    Do we know for sure that it was a bfssfger? That's some cold blooded **** right there.

    On the other hand, I read once about some ape researchers who observed a female away from her group who located a stash of treats. Apparently these apes' brains are wired way down deep so that when they find food they involuntarily make a food call to the rest of the group. Anyway their arms are under control of the "higher" more voluntary motor cortex; so this one clamped her hand over her mouth to muffle the food call, grabbed the stash and ran for it. Take a lesson from our relatives yellowjeep .

    I NEED a job. all the lbs jobs are taken here by bastards who know alot about bikes but don't care much about riding them.

    whats wrong with the midwest?

    that sucks jakbikes, I got a call yesterday from another shop that i had asked about a job, so now i have to figure out which one give me the biggest discount and best hours, having options to negotiate rules. but the one i just heard from is alot closer and being able to ride to work is a major major plus.
