But why?

This morning I had a right nice puncture. Right at the seat of the valve, that is, so patching is out of the question. Why is this such a big deal? Well, if you’re asking, it’s probably because you live somewhere not in Prague. You might live somewhere that has bike shops. There are plenty of shops in Prague, of course, that’s just some fucking hyperbole, but here’s how clever these folks are:

Bike Expert – open 9-6

69 Bikes – open 10 -6:30

etc., etc.

There is a pattern: the only people who can shop at these places are unemployed. This is a direct result of the Czech Workplace Corollary, which indicates an inverse reciprocal disagreement with the shop owner’s stated intention to make profit and his willingness to run the shop. It’s not uncommon to meet these fine folk in their places of business – if you’re unemployed.

Unemployed: “Hey Honza, why did you open a bike shop?”

Honza: “Cuz I like bikes, ty vole.”

Unemployed: “So, Honza, why are you always acting like a disinterested, insufferable little prick?”

Honza: “Cuz I hate working in a bike shop, ty vole.”

So here’s to the douchebag of the day: Czech bike shop owners who can’t figure out that people who have jobs during the day are more likely to buy bikes from them than the fucking unemployed. Get with the flow of capital, douchebags!

Pepa here finds Prague bike shop opening hours convenient. Too bad he CAN'T FUCKING AFFORD ANYTHING.
