    I quit a job when they started calling me on my day off and demanding that I come to work.

    It’s like you were there with me last weekend…only with a bike shop instead of a farmer’s market.

    Thanks for the sympathy. The shift went OK, but I missed out on lots of biking stuff that I would have rather been doing! I did get back to the shop yesterday to buy the bike, so things worked out.
