Has anyone else noticed that it is getting harder to get a Sunday to yourself? There's only 52 of them in a year, and it seems to me that someone else has pre-booked almost all of mine - leaving bugger all time for riding. My kids have a firm booking for every Saturday, and that's cool 'coz they're fun to hang out with. But Sundays - phark me - every bastard wants to "borrow" a bit of my Sunday for purposes that, frankly, rate well below going for a ride. There's always something - family lunches with my wheezy dad and dopy brothers, ex-wives who need help demolishing a shed, helping someone move house, attending christenings for the children of my G/F's distant relatives, mowing the lawn because the neighbours think the place is looking a little feral or going shopping because my significant other thinks my wardrobe needs upgrading. After trying to negotiate new arrangements (unsucessfully), I'm adopting a market-focussed approach. I figure my Sundays have a value, and the best way of communicating value is to assign a cost. So, as of today, my Sundays are up for auction. This is a public announcement. I will check the weather for the weekend and decide on a value for the coming Sunday. If you want me to do anything other than ride, you can bid on my Sunday. Bids will be accepted up until 5.00pm on Friday. Outbid me, and the day is yours - we'll go the mall, visit hospitals, whatever. Underbid, and the day is mine. Regardless of who wins, the proceeds go into a tin to fund my Tasmania trip early next year. If this works, I'll move it to Ebay shortly. Paypal will be accepted. Bulk Discounts: You can bid on a block of Sundays during the mid-winter "off-peak" period. Franchise opportunity If there are any other Netrider who want to sell their Sundays, feel free to PM me. I'm prepared to enter into subcontracting arrangements (I take 10%, you go to the christening and I go riding) A last, I think I've found the solution. You get what you want, I get what I want. Happy bidding. *I wrote this tongue-in-cheek. I have a sneaking suspicion that I may have just given away my first real business idea. I've no idea if this post should be on "for sale", "humour" or "off topic" so its going in general discussion. I'm sure that, if it offends, a Mod will deal with it appropriately.
