This is where Danny comes

fun times. One time he
accidentally poured boiling
hot tea in my cup. I have
third degree burns.
Anyway--feel free to
It's not every day you get your tires changed, so when you do--it's important to draft up characters for all the Wal-Mart tire center employees.
Brad - "Honcho"
Service manager--big man on campus
Jack of all trades
The confidence man
Extensive knowledge of tires —gains the teams
respect through suave nature and scrupulous detail
Raised by a dad who was rough around the edges
—Mr. Goodyear’s son
Crippling alcohol addiction
Joe - "Cue Ball"
He’s the guy who knows a guy
Has a bird
Got into the game for the money—stayed in it for the thrill
Fluent in Russian—but you’d never know it
Chews spare pieces of tire
Has a tattoo on his chest--claims: "If I showed you, I'd have to kill you."
Ricky - “Brick”
Eats nails for breakfast
5’5 but stronger and more brute than any man twice his size
Once killed a man for driving a Prius
Has a soft side for his cat— “snickerdoodle”
Won a very vague "most bearded man" competition
Swishes his teeth with motor oil
Chance - "Buster Brown"
Often gets in trouble for “goofing around”
Makes inappropriate comments about the gang's sisters
Consistently late to poker night
Is kept on the team because he’s Brad’s astranged cousin
Pretty decent change speed for a schmuck
Beat Juan in a tire change off once and won’t let him forget it
Loses everyone’s tools
Zachary - “9-Volt”
Can tell a tires psi just by looking at it
Loudly breathes from his mouth
Wanted in 3 states for building explosives from junkyard mufflers
"This job is a means to an end--just gotta stay in it until i can craft 'the big one'"
Often makes shady comments towards his coworkers--
"I could make that problem go away"
Juan - “Mr. Mystery”
Nobody knows where he came from
The eldest of the group—revered for his practical tire skills
Doesn’t know the industry lingo—but he’s a better tire man than any bookworm
Believes that fewer words do the trick
Never double checks—he does it right the first time
Whistles with his teeth
Aliza - “Slippy”
New recruit —Picked up by Cody
Quickest tire change in the tri state area
Humble beginnings- orphan kid
Says silly words like “jeepers” and “fiddlesticks”
Underestimating him is the biggest mistake you’ll ever make
Quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
Cody - “Lucky Duke”
Tires are his job—playing the odds is his passion
Small town hero
Bet his daddy’s farm in a poker game—hasn’t returned since
Caught Aliza trying to pick his pocket—admired his skill and brought him aboard
Busted back in ‘83 for selling fake tires to the Michelin man
