I can understand your exit, TimB. Frustrating.

One gets into the business cause they like people and enjoy helping people.
Then they want out of the business cause they can't stand people and are sick of trying to help them.

Good luck to you, sir.


That hit the nail on the head! Money is nice, but it's never been a big motivator for me. I'm enjoying actually riding this year.

Re:Tim Metric Magic 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
Today's customer is NOT always right. Today's customers are rude, impatient, belligerent, damanding, and unrealistic in their expectations of what a company should do to solve their issue.
It's a sad commentary on our society today.


Yes, yes & yes!

Re:Tim Metric Magic 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
Unfortunately Tim, you're 100% right.

Apparently, everyone thinks profit margins on goodies from you is around 100% and it gets worse. Try to explain that you're NOT making much on the sale and they get downright insulting. The average American consumer is a completely arrogant ass who thinks they should get everything for close to free and nobody else should make any money providing what they want. The whole "I got mine so screw you" mentality. There are exceptions of course, but the idea of the average Joe Sixpack making it rich selling motorcycle parts out of his home is nothing short of downright idiotic.

Best of luck Tim in whatever & wherever you go from here.
You've helped more people than you will ever know.
