Stupid ***** Waffle House Waitress...

I went to the Waffle House last night during the 3AM rush after the bars close and when I put my bike in the booth across from me, she told me I couldn't bring it inside. I don't carry a lock, and i certainly don't want some cager hillbilly stealing my bike, so I said:

"Don't you know I'm saving the planet?" barely controlling my anger. Then she threatened to call the cops. All cyclists should boycott Waffle House until she apologizes to me and/or gives me a free pecan waffle. I bet she voted for Bush, stupid *****.

You forgot to tell her IHOP lets cyclists race through the restaurant.

Pretty soon you won't have any place left to eat!

There is always the free samples, or what ever you can snack on and put back on the shelf (or steal) at Walmart!

The local Walmart lets me park my bike even closer to the entrance than the disabled get in the segregated handicapped zone and fatsos in their land barges idling near the front door.

Yeah HyVee samples are better and that is where my wife does most of our food shopping but it doesn't have my favorite lead painted toys to gnaw on, and besides, the OP has a thing for Walmart.

I'm a BK Joe kind of guy.

I wish we had Waffle Houses up north. Gotta get down around I-70 before they start showing up every three feet.

I love breakfast, that's what I was trying to get at the Waffle House. Can you possibly think of one good reason a restaurant would have for not wanting a bicycle inside when they are extremely busy? I mean, I'm saving the planet, unlike those drunk cager toerags that were tripping over my Long Haul Trucker.

If you're helping to save the planet, you should be offered free food wherever you go, anyway, to offset the carbon you aren't dumping into the atmosphere. People who disagree with me are wrong. My bike should be able to accompany me anywhere because it is symbolic of how I am saving the earth.

Kris, doesn't your bike have one of these on the downtube? You'd have gotten gratis grits if so.

They are brainwashed by TV advertising!! Otherwise they would be in the streets cheering us along and showering us with chocolates and flowers.

I definitely agree about free food though... we need more threads about this subject.
Hey, I feel like you are perhaps mocking me, a person who is a Car-Free Planet Warrior. This is not the thread for sarcasm, friend.

That's right, the Quest for free food is the true mark of a Serious Cyclist. Free Beer and Pizza on demand for Righteous Cycling Crusaders is the Holy Grail; any Real Cyclist would know this.

Here is where everyone should send their e-mails. Please, take these complaint letters seriously, as if you were writing a report for school. 3-5 pages double spaced. No cursing.
