to be honest, Peter WAS good at fixing bikes. he was just 'too slow' which made me want to slap the owner of the shop for firing him. do you want it done FAST or do you want it done RIGHT???

Or if you made the varsity football team, but your mother thinks you could get hurt, then you need to quit.
