Any of you having this issue? Especially when it's cold & the sun's already down, but man I've been having some nerve racking instances. Here's just a couple.
1. The occasional yelling of something. Usually indecipherable, but still, directed at me. Tends to make me nervous when I happen to catch a stop light immediately after it.
2. Two teenagers playing at the stop in the middle of downtown, one pushes the other into the street, in my line, I swear, he pops up and yells at me? That I should be on the sidewalk (which was packed with other pedestrians??? Huh?
3. Cruising along, again, downtown, same bus stop as the teens, just a different evening. I'm about 4 maybe 5 feet from the curb (no cars in my lane, so I took more of it). Suddenly, as I pass the bus stop, a fist flies out in front of my face and is immediately pulled back within an inch of hitting me. Just a scare thing, don't think he was actually trying to hit me, but it was like, WTF???
There's been a couple other instances, but it's all been this winter. Last year I had no issues that I can remember and it's the same 20 mile route through rich & significantly not-rich, downtown & suburban, heavy traffic & quiet streets, as it's always been.
I'm just a guy, in tight funny-looking clothes, physically attached to an expensive bright white & orange bike, so I'm not going to grab a handful, U-turn in the middle of the street and go confront some aggressive ass, I just ignore and fly by, don't show that it gets to me, and just keep on cruising while they sit there miserable waiting for the bus.
Anyone else have this problem? Ugh. Vented... feel better.
