My thought was that the guy should be apologizing to his employees, as well as the community, for being a a**hole who could be jeopardizing their jobs.

I don't know if I'd mentioned it previously, but my "fee" for all of the kitchen work is a new espresso machine - it was something that I'd jokingly proffered and the wife was all too happy to accept. Today, she approached me and asked, "how much is the espresso machine going to be? I want to know how much to set aside for it and the counter tops..." When I told her, she didn't flinch at all. DAMN! I should have shot higher! :lol:

A light plane crashed about a mile from here 45 minutes ago. Helicopters are flying around it. The news said the pilot didn't make it.
Saturday a rider who is a member of my club was killed by a DUI speeder. Just now heard they are going to charge the driver with murder. I didn't know the rider.

About as long as I have been on the forum whenever someone talks about weight, buying lighter parts, saving weight on their bike, etc., people will tell them to take a dump instead, as if that was the answer. Or someone will say to leave a bottle at home. Eventually some clear thinker will say they could do both of those things and still buy the lighter parts.

WellÖWith all the toting around I do, including on the bike, it might be a financially sound approach. Iím pretty sure we get them for less than retail. When my company iPhone 7 crapped out it was replaced with a 10 R. Guess the price to the company.

I don't know about anyone else, but taking a dump isn't something I can generally do on command. I'm either ready to do so or I'm not.

Still, I gotta admit, it's cheaper than most good quality, lighter bike parts.

More like he's using them as human shields.
