Undignified moron

Postby grw » Fri Sep 23, 2011 8:32 am

Yes, that was me on Royal Parade this morning, after being honked at by motorist who then said I should get out of his way, I lost it. Swearing and shouting and spluttering with indignation. Looked a fool, felt a fool. What a fool.
Lesson learned there:
By him - none other than this particular cyclist shouts and swears.
By me - ride on please, it doesn't do any good and you make yourself look a plonker.
Ashamed. Cringe.

don't worry, heat of the moment, sometimes its gets the better of you. at least you're getting of you're chest here.
Life is not about waiting for the rain to pass.....it's about learning to dance (or ride) in the rain.

Ha ha +1 guilty on that one too.
My effort was last Saturday as I was taking the lane approaching a red light, Mr Magna and his wife shave me, then cut me off and stop about 5 metres in front of me. I went semi ballistic, pointing out to Mr Magna the light was always red and did he need to pass me just so he could stop for longer?
Fortunately and surprisingly I didn't swear, but it was less effective than emptying my bidon a duck's back!
I just love riding my bike!

Yesterday a guy in a UTE called me "bikepath!". As I didn't know if that was an insult or compliment, I just kept on riding without replying...
