Hadda Cobbler

I was just ripped off by a shifty eyed cobbler who charged me 45 dollars to re-heel two pairs of shoes, and put 3 stitches in a moccassin. Shoe oughta know better, his smile leered. Clearly I can't sandal the truth, and got stuck with a re-pair-man who slide to me. I shoed be pumped about the fix, but my tongue was hanging out in sock as I left the store. What a heel, I am. Mule have to forgive me.

The guy probably engaged in shoddy workmanship to boot, although he does seem to be keeping instep with the NY tradition of over-charging. NY isn't the sole place that overcharges, but If you keep going to this guy, you'll be flats broke. It's a slippery slope you're on. It's time to lace the music: Since no man is an eyelet, you should gather your friends and acquaintances for some mass aglet-ation to lower prices. And don't flip-flop about what you want!

Hmmm...maybe he gets his kicks this way. The cobbling (?) industry is laced with guys like this. They always clog up the works for everyone else!
I once tried to Timber-land myself a job like this, but they put me in the stocking room. I was surprised, I thought I was a shoe-in.

oh....and I couldn't seem to fit this in:
