I think I am going to start treating horrible hides that lead to DNFs like this guy, sending them a bill for the time. His hourly rate is a bit low but I think I can modify this quote ever so slightly to work:
My time on this planet is valuable to me. But more importantly, my time is valuable to you. In our attention economy, my presence in your café helps your company in a number of ways. For example, it attracts other customers to you because they see that your brand is popular – especially so with an ABC1 male (or however you’d define me these days.) And it means I’m not spending time with your competitors. My attention and time in your café ultimately helps your bottom line and market position.
Let’s see, replace café with “Geocache Site”, company with “Geocaching Profile” and customers with “Cachers”. Done.
So the next time I hike 3 miles up a mountain to DNF a micro in a bush, this memo is going out. 😉
