Notes from the Bike Shop

This very-amusing Craigslist post is from a bike shop, advising would-be customers on some etiquette. Here’s just but one of the gems.

I really do need to see your bike to know what is wrong with it. You’ve already figured out that when you car makes a noise, the mechanic needs to see it. When your TV goes blank, a technician needs to see it. I can tell you, if there is one thing I’ve learned from you fucking squirrels, it’s that “doesn’t shift right” means your bike could need a slight cable adjustment, or you might just need to stop backing into it with the Subaru. Bring it in, I’ll let you know for sure.


Yeah, that one has been floating around for a month.  The funny thing is that my boss wanted to know if I wrote that, since I’ve vented similar sentiments on this blog.  Except that our shop doesn’t sell kids’ bikes as described in the Craiglist post.  Also, the writing style isn’t to my flavour.  It’s funny though.
