When customers start hammering the shops for parts and it ain't even summer yet, and they're wondering why their parts aren't in their 'my downloads' folder even though they only checked out 5 minutes ago, take that and multiply by 1000 or even 10, and see if they don't make mistakes. Factor in these places having to order stuff, take irate calls from said buyers, or spend an hour answering how to change a Puch headlight bulb, then having them say 'oh but I have a Sparta' or having walk-in repairs from some other TOMOS dealer the ppl bought it at and now they won't support, and that's not even the other brick & mortar guys who don't sell kits and write out a receipt by hand, who answer the never-stop-ringing phone that starts the minute they take their 2nd bite of their bought at 9:30 breakfast sandwich at almost 3 in the afternoon, listening to the sauced & tweaked vato demand you tell him what's wrong with the electric shopping cart he basketed out, and the guy who wants new rings installed at 1/2 hour before closing, or the old uppity drunk guy telling T&A stories down your neck as you change his Revival tire. See if they don't make a couple mistakes. And factor in real-time repairs on vintage, and the consulting/ decisions that go with a lowball/ high labor estimate. Actually I salute these guys for not dying of an aortal aneuryism at the front counter. For the privelege of making sure that 1 less cage on the road they get all that fun along with the joy of dealing with flack from people out the loop
