THEY LIED TO ME

TODD BROWN Bike Life


CASHIERS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS.  I have a lot of cycling themed t's - from a peloton of Storm Troopers to pithy quips.  For some reason, cashiers love to comment more than any other group of people... it's not weird, just unexpected.

Like today... on my way back from a meeting at Shimano I pulled into Sprouts for a quick lunch.

100 kilometer bike race.  How far is that?

62.14 miles.

Wow.  I rode 50 miles before.

You could do this (shameless promoter, I know).

I did the Rosarito to Ensenada bike race.  That's 50 miles.  I was going up this hill.  It almost killed me.  The said it was the only one... but there were 5 more.  They lied to me!

Did you go back?

Yep, 6 years in a row. 

That's awesome.

Yeah, but I couldn't do that now.  I haven't ridden my bike in years.

Well, maybe it's time to get back at it?

Oh, I don't think so... but, you have a nice day.

You too.

And, it got me thinking... what would it be like to be a cashier?  Would I be checking everybody out too?
