So for the ump-teenth time today, I almost ran over a pedstrian and his dog.
There is a bike path that runs along the top of the Hetch Hetchy aquaduct system here in Mountain View/Los Altos/Palo Alto. Very nice, it does have a broken yellow line painted down the cetner of it.
I come upon a group of pedestrians and as per the norm, they are just standing on the path, blocking it while bull****ing with each other. As I come upon them, I ring my bell, no response. 'EXCUSE ME PLEASE! ON YOUR LEFT!', slowly riding off onto the trail's shoulder.
So what does the living-brain-donor with the dog do? He moves off the trail to the left, right into my path. And he has the chutzpuh to say to me, 'Hey, watch it!'
Nice, huh? Whatever happened to paying attention to what's going on around you and abiding by common sense?
