The other day, I was at work and speaking with a staff member about my new interest....road biking. Gave up a different sport due to age and decided to bike. Anyway....she asked me if I rode my bike on the street. To this I naturally replied...of course...it is called road biking for a reason. She replied to me that she hated me and all of us that do as we all get on her nerves and we shouldn't even be on the road unless we have a motor on the vehicle. To put it lightly...I was stunned. She is normally a really nice lady.
My only response to her was that I had every right to be on that road as I pay taxes as well (We all do) and that the cause of most biking accidents are vehicle/driver negligence...not the biker. this apparently offended her. However, I did note that on her way out of the parking lot later that day....she was talking on her cell and putting on her makeup with her other hand...driving with her knees. Pulled up beside her at the stop sign and just shook my head. When she saw me...you shoulda see how quickly that cell and makeup disappeared. Don't even know what to say to her now.
