Will you please put on some dam clothes!

When riding home today I passed a gas station where a lady pulls up to the pump to gas up. It's pretty cold with a few snow flurries and she's wearing just a t-shirt and shorts. Just when I'm passing by, a voice over the gas station PA system says "Will you please put on some dam clothes!" I mean the very instant I look at her. I just lost it. I couldn't stop laughing. I guess all this pushed the right buttons because that lady went berserk, started yelling at everyone in eye sight. That made me laugh even more. A quick stop and a few hops on one foot kept me from falling over hard. I don't think the lady realized that it was from the PA system and kept yelling "Who said that?" Thank God she had the hose in her hand, she hadn't started pumping yet but she wouldn't let go either so it acted as a leash limiting her movement. So anyway, the headwind didn't bother me so much the rest of the way home.

What are the chances the PA voice was female? Had caught her hubby watching the 1/2 nude lady.

Voice over the PA was female. And no, she wasn't hot. Though she might be had she started bike commuting four or five years ago. Probably better temperment too. So be thankfull I had no camera. Helmetcam, that would have been nice.

By definition, a hot babe = female bicyclist. This class of people is the only ones that should be allowed to wear sports bra's and (bicycle) shorts in public. As this is not the case in this scenario, we conclude that this female could not by standard definition be classified as hot, and should be covered by a 10 by 10 metre tarpaulin. By the same line of classification, this person probably don't know about bicycles and parts, and can thus not be classifed as intelligent or smart.
Sverre, incredibly intolerant, biased bigot who considers bicyclists to be the superior race and all others inferior ... creatures that must be tolerated for the continued function of society. (Someone has to make the bikeparts and build roads, for instance.) People using public transport systems are given the benefit of the doubt, they may be short on cash to buy a bicyle or in the process of repairs.

are you sure the PA's message wasn't meant for a certain cyclist riding by at the time?

Nah, wasn't ment for me. No spandex in winter. Fleece layers and wind shell jacket and pants that puff up in the wind. If the PA announcement addressed the Michelin Man or the Pillsbury "Doh" Boy (whoa, a little too frightenly accurate there) then it would have been ment for me. But then, the announcer would have run out and poked me in the belly. Hey, I could get a picture of that. Hold on, I'll recharge some batteries.
