Oh, I agree 100% about the guys cleaning up after themselves. Every mechanic I know is as much a stickler about cleaning up as Paul Sr.

I suppose the thing that really bugged me about the whole scenario was Paulie's attitude. Let's face it, Vinnie is his right-hand man and the shop's Go To Guy. Vinnie is always willing to put in overtime and go the extra mile to make sure the bikes get done on time. It bothered me to see Paulie just ignoring the whole exchange between Paul Sr. and Vinnie when he could have just went to his dad and said, "Hey, how about we hire somebody to come in to help keep the shop tidy?"

Paulie knew Vinnie's situation with the baby coming and knew his boy couldn't afford to lose a day's pay. And you can't tell me that Paulie can't afford to pay a high school kid out of his own pocket when he's tooling around in a brand new Prowler and showing off his new Rolex.
