That doesn't look anything like a piece of shit Dyson.
Go ahead, Matthew.
ok, this might be long, but i'm trying to keep it short.
i admire you for keeping up the family business, i do. and i admire your loyalty to your family too.
but it is becoming more clear that this shop is not the vehicle that is going to give YOU what YOU need, that it is not going to satisfy YOUR needs and ambitions.
so what i suggest is this. sit down with your dad, look him right ...., and tell him that you need to make a change.
it's likely that he already knows. now, find someone to run the shop, or close the shop. it wouldn't be the first mom & pop store to get put out of business by the big box stores.
now to the fun part: what to do next.
taking into account your intelligence, hyperactivity, and social anxiety disorders, i think you'd make a kick ass bartender. you're already in Myrtle Beach, where people go to party and vacation, and there have got to be a million bars in the area.
that forces you to be social, and teaches you how to be a bartender. and if i know you, and i think i have an idea, you'll own your own bar/nightclub within 2 years, maybe sooner, maybe later. and you'll be in a target-rich environment to have chicks hit on you, as well as mood appropriate lighting.
so that's my plan. have a heart-to-heart with your dad. tell him that running the store is killing you. go to bartender school and be the best bartender in Myrtle Beach, with an eye on having your own business making people happy.
The day you give your heart to Jesus, He will set you free.
here's a typical Dyson review on Costco's website.

Broken in 20 minutes - PLASTIC
Pros: looks good
Cons: poorly made weak parts, bad on carpeted stairs
Model Number: DC33
"I had high hope for this technology and this brand. The machine is all plastic including parts that should be strong and metal. The carpet brush broke in less than 20 minutes use! Perhaps it is a fluke but clearly this is not a durable machine.
Usability: Stairs were a pain, unable to get into the cracks.
To be returned immediately"
