just had to pop into town to pop some money into the bank and thought id pop into cyclesport as i need a new freewheel , which they didnt have in 16t . normally someone would then go off to the warehouse and pick one up for me . but i was told the mailorder side of the business has split from the shop and to go myself
eventually found the warehouse and tentatively knocked on the door , to be opened by a typical bmxer . erm ive been told you can sort me out with a 16t acs freewheel ?
" that shop has fook all , come in and ill get one , itl be a tenner "
wicked , £7 less than most shops
i also did the thing you get used to asking when your out of work " need any staff ? "
" not right now but soon we will be , drop a letter in "
i figure itl be all the awsomness of working in a shop . touching all the cool parts ( in bulk no less ) , knowing about all the cool parts without trying to know about all the cool parts , getting the cool parts at discount etc but without having to deal directly with people as its mostly internet sales
hmm , how do you apply for a job that doesnt exist yet ? im not doing anything anyway should i camp in their carpark ?
