This is off=topic. The choice to read or not to read is yours.

No documentation, just first hand experience dealing with the clerks in the SF bay area. They had to get by doing whatever work they could find until they were middle aged and their dad's retired so they could have that job. I
I grew up in a port town. The saying on the railroad and the port authority, "If you're not related, it's who you know or who you bl**.
I saw this first hand, when ever I needed a few extra bucks, I called my cousin. I went to work when others were waiting on the benches. The same held true with the railroad. 4 of my good buds went on the railroad, they made engineer...after their dads retired. mucho dinero for any of those jobs.

In the long run we all know who ends up with the short straw when this crap happens, don't we Dan???

Will this affect the price of breakfast burritos? (inside joke there)

I hope not, the chiles this time of year are from Mexico.
