    I can understand Gus wanting to get out for his own sake, but how does this make Mary Lou’s life any less stressful? She’ll either take on waaay more responsibility if she buys her father out, or she’ll have to rethink her entire income source. I hope Gus doesn’t try to pass this off as “for Mary Lou’s sake”.

    Smart owners don’t work, somebody else does it

    The biggest question, will she be asking Gene, or just jump in.
    That could be a very turning point in the relationship.
    .
    Can’t see owning a business, too much work to keep it going, the actual job and the administration portion.
    .
    Besides, as the ‘experts’ say, ’ We’ll be buying everything off the web.’
    (yea,right)

    Exactly. I think Gus and Gene will insist she take a few weeks off to just relax first.

    “Smart owners don’t work, somebody else does it”

    The problem with this is, if the owner isn’t there working, a smart employee will take the business away from him/her.

    Having friends that own a mom and pop restaurant, the mount of ‘work’ depends on how they define work.

    They consider the restaurant their kitchen, with friends coming over for ’mom’s home cooking’. Dad hosts, visits with regulars, and meets the new people, the kids serve and bus.

    According to Dad, the work is the accounting, taxes, and paperwork the government requires.
