Rounds 86 and 87

The new lights are kick-ass.  The front flashing beam is so bright, I get “flash back” off of road signs, and other reflective surfaces.  Very nice.  My only concern is it’s angled up too much, I might make a slight adjustment this weekend.

I noticed this morning that my front tire is low.  I *would* have stopped at the Esso in James Bay on my way to work, but they CHARGE to use the air compressor.  Seriously?  I have several problems with this poicy:

#1.  IT’S AIR!  Your telling me I have to pay for it?  I just don’t get it.

#2. Nobody carries change anymore.  Put an debit machine on it at least.

#3.  They “say” they give the money they charge you to charity, but why?  If these businesses were so concerned about making a charitable donation before, why did they wait to start charging at the air compressor to make it happen?  Sounds fishy to me.

  1. compressor costs money to maintain.

  2. Dam you, Jeremy and your “facts” Good point.

  3. There is a little silver button on the right hand side of the box where you put the coins. Hit the button a few times and the compressor will start up. Its how I filled up my bike tires last week at an Esso close to my place.
