    Gus has been a fairly high level drug dealer for several years, decades maybe. Million dollars drug deals. You have to assume vast wealth.

    Then, on top of this, he is the owner of 13 Los Pollos Hermanos franchines which by themselves would be very profitable.

    Yet...

    In spite of all that money, wealth and power... he spends all day working at a fast food restaurant? He drives a Volvo station wagon to protect his cover?

    At what point does he cash out and live like a king free of the stress of being caught? He makes all that money at so much risk and for what? So he can work behind a register?

    Madrigal's root comes from the latin for mother. FYI.

    You did see the end of Season 4, right?

    I think that pretty much closed up this "plot hole".

    Not good enough. Bernie Madoff could have bailed with pockets full of cash. For Gus, It was his profession. It was his calling.

    Plot hole that he had a sixth sense when it came to Walt.

    money and a wealthy lifestyle isn't everything for some people. maybe gus just loved the power he had over people. especially if you believe the rumors of his back story being involved with the pinochet regime in chile.

    He doesn't/didn't work behind the cash register.

    He managed all those restaurants, and he was hands on.

    As noted above, some people love to work.

    Some people feel if they retire, their life isn't worth living.

    Look at Jay Leno. He works 5 days a week, while young whippersnappers work 4 (or 3, in Howard Stern's case).

    Same with Joe Paterno.

    My dad is 86, older than Paterno, and he still works a full-time job.

    This conversation should probably be had in the ***Official Discussion Thread***.

    Just sayin'.
