    Getting Egged...

    my girlfriend and i were riding home from a friends house late last night, in a stretch between the suburbs/ west end and the inner city where i live, when we got egged by some ****ing kids in a car. **** that ****. stung like a mother****er. i unclipped, threw my bike from under me, ran to fight them, and they ****ing drove away. WTF!? who does that? at least have the decency to face me and take what you have coming! to anyone thinking of coming to allentown, PA.... DON'T.

    i figured my 3 1/2 inch blade would always be enough, though i suppose it does require them having the initiall gonads to challenge me.

    You'd stab someone over an egg?

    Need to get a plate number next time.. see who's laughing then. Teens clean up real quick when parents get involved. That is, unless they had the brains to cover it up.

    Challenge you? What the **** man, it's idiot teenagers acting completely normally. Try not to catch any 2nd degree murder charges in the near future. Your gf will be pissed.

    one night i was walking through the city when out of nowhere an ice cream cone comes wizzing past my head, and smashes on the building right next to me. instantly i got pissed off, wondering who's gonna disrespect me like that. so i turn and see a car full of 20something thugged out looking black dudes. then i just wondered why the **** they were riding around eating ice cream cones.
    that's a true story.

    no, you're right, i would not have stabbed ANYONE for throwing something at me. a brick.... eh, maybe. but i WOULD have taken their car keys, wallets, and shoes. nothing says "you got served, b*tch!" like taking another mans shoes. booyah.

    I wonder how it would work to carry some of those mini binoculars in your pocket so when a car tries to make a quick getaway you can stop & still get the digits?

    Reminds me of an incident that happened earlier this year. Just .5 miles from home on my commute from work a group of teens pulled up next to me & yelled get on the sidewalk. I yelled thankyou, waved & smiled at them. They pulled ahead & turned right, then right again onto a dead end side street. I turned right onto my street & headed up the block home. They turned around & drove up my street, saw me in going up my driveway & honked & yelled again. I turned & looked at them as they passed. My wife had let my dog outside so I went & took her off of the tie out & took her to the front lawn. I also took my pepper spray, lock blade knife & handle bar sports camera with me. These clowns went by again & kept doing this. I was taking pictures of them & motioning for them to come on & fight if that's what they want. My dog, who won't hurt a fly, but they didn't know that, kept watching them too. She would bark everytime they yelled something. I would make the motion of opening my arms with the knife in one hand & the pepper spray in the other walking toward the street yelling at them to come on, let's do this with my dog right by my side everytime they drove by. They made the wise decision to not stop to get out of their car & take me on. I didn't care how old they were, they were threatening me & I was going to defend myself any way possible.

    So far I've been hit with a Boston Creme Doughnut and a d-cell battery. The doughnut kinda pissed me off; creme all over my camelbak. The D-cell hurt! It passed through my frame and smoked me on the inside of my right calf. These missles both came from cars, and both time I failed to catch the little teenage twats what did it.

    Yes, several states have passed laws enforcing the death penalty for throwing an egg at someone.

    And if you did catch them, what would you do to them?

    I was egged some years ago. The broken shell cut me on the left leg. The eggs were tossed by some white trashers in a battered old Ford. My Reaction was about the same as your own. I was so angry, I growled at them and dared them to come back here. Nope, they kept going, with the egg-thrower giving me the finger and a death look from the passenger window. These were not teenagers either. These wastebags were probably in their late 20's to early 30's.

    To answer your question, "Who does that?", my answer is "all-american cowards".

    This happened before cell phones became standard equipment for everyone, so I called police from a pay phone. A motorcycle officer arrived in a few minutes, but I had no license number to give him. While he was talking to me, he received another call, saying that an elderly man had been struck by eggs from a passing car.

    Great country we have, isn't it? To think there are people who can afford to buy eggs, coffee, Mickey D's food, and ice cream cones, then throw them at people, because it makes them feel tough.

    Does this happen in places such as Holland, Germany, or Switzerland?

    I have had soda bottles thrown at me. Fruit. Worst I think is when some kids passed me slow enough to spit at me. Hit me on my knee. Then they took off. But, nothing is worse than a motorist swerving at a cyclist attempting to push him off the road. That happened to me once.But that person appeared to be an 'adult.' That as far as I am concerned is attempted murder.

    Apparently, the latest fad in some parts of Europe is to film a friend sneaking up and slapping someone very hard, then running away.

    Give them a talking to, like the teen clowns I did catch on another occasion. This groups of twits tried the "force the biker off the road" trick. Idiots did it in heavy traffic and laughed their butts off as they drove away. They changed their tune pretty quick when the scary man in the bellaclava and ski goggles came up to the drivers window at the next light.

    I gotta admit, the goggles and bellaclava are my favourite part of winter cycling. The reactions of people in the cars are great. You just have to remember to take that gear off when you go into the bank.

    Reminds me of the last day of middle school when I got sprayed with bottled and aged piss by guys from the high school. They had a crappy K car which I threw a brick through the rear windshield of. Then I ran for it. I probably would have gotten quite the ass wooping had the cops not shown up.

    I caught the kids that egged my car as I was driving down Murrieta Blvd in Livermore back in the 80's. Got one to confess and walked her to her parents house about a block away. Where she promptly changed her story and lied about the egging. Her mother declared that her baby wouldn't egg a car and wouldn't lie about it. Pissed me off. Unfortunately, for them, they gave me their name. I looked it up in the phone book.

    For the next six months, about twice a week, my alarm would go off at three am. I would then call the house and tell them what I thought about them and their daughter. Eventually, they had their phone number changed and unlisted.

    Of course, this was the days before caller ID.

    Hahaha... I love this thread. That bit about calling the house at 3:00 AM is priceless.
