Got told off today for sitting down when there was fook all to do . Apparently I have to stand , balls to that , this isn't china yet .

Thought about walking when I was told to "push" an offer we have . Face it , if people aren't interested theyre not interested , an increased figure on a bit of paper isn't going to make people buy something .

I'll leave before I have to give a hard sell and I couldn't care less about predicted sales , my ethics don't change for minimum wage :lol:

And while I'm having a moan I will have done 7 straight days on tues totaling more than than 30 hours ; don't forget I'm part time , everyone else seems to have .

On a less pissed off note :lol: a couple came in for a longer than normal rear QR so the lady could fit a trailer to the back of her orange to drag the sprog about but because we didn't have anything longer and even though I mentioned changing the skewer part as it's threaded at both ends they bought a whole new bike . it's alright for some eh :lol:

Attempted to cat escape proof my flat as I've just adopted a 12 year old cat called Murphy. He's supposed to stay inside as he has a compromised imune system and a common cat cold could finish him. He'll probably outlive me :roll:

Achieved Zero in the world of bikes, trying to fine tune the Trek SS for SSEC but nothing seems to work satisfactorily, Dahon is in reserve.

Got 3 inside cats , whenever they sneek past the door they just freeze , probably in awe at outside :lol: It's easy to pick them up and bung em back inside .

A rabbit has appeared at the other end of the living room . The last one was crazy ; whenever out of the cage it went menacing the cats , chew through the cable for my thinkpad too , wasn't very happy with that .

Crudguard must go, doesn't suit especially with the forks looking reeeeaaalllly long, possibly the black stanchions and legs not helping - geometry still ok? I do love a bike in a light blue though, will reserve judgement until I see the decals applied. I liked the custard too :oops:

Function over form I'm afraid- Trumpton is a real shitfest at the moment and you really cant see with a face full of shat. Geometry still spot on- frame was designed for a 140mm fork- this one runs about 120 with sag taken into consideration.
