I do not normally read the Bike Snob...

the Bike Snob reviews the documentary Courier Culture
http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com

quite clever... I must admit


The film opens by inviting us to ponder a series of questions, these being:


"What is the meaning of life?  What is success measured by?  What makes people happy?  Yes, it's the American dream to own a house, but do we need to own a house?  How much money do we need to live and be comfortable?  Are the messengers any more or less happy than the person in a McMansion in Potomac?"

Obviously, the answers to these questions are easy, and here they are:

1) 42;
2) Centimeters;
3) Bubble baths, cute ducklings, comfortable pants, stuff like that;
4) Depends;
5) Exactly $642,918;
6) They're more happy, because when they get sick of being messengers they just move back in to their parents' McMansions in Potomac.

Done, and done.

The Currier companies are up to their eyeballs in cronyism,and racism. If you are one of their "good old boys".

Then you can do well after all other people are doing the the really tough jobs, other people work the rainy days etc.

As is the case with the rest of the country you can hardly expect the " good old boys" the company's favorite's to complain.
