So I was driving with my wife to go drop our kids off at their respective morning destinations.
First I pull out on the main street near my house and I spy a fella taking the lane of a 4 lane road, 2 lanes each way. That part is fine until...I pass him and see he is riding with no hands nor a helmet. Not to get into a helmet debate but, I mean, c'mon. Don't ride like an idiot and still not wear a helmet. He wasn't even trying to ride the speed of the traffic. Going 4-8MPH on a 35MPH road. There is a high school just a mile up the road so I am sure he was headed there which I guess puts the above story in perspective but still. C'mon!
I am getting ready to pull into the alley near my oldest kids school and I see 2 younger kids. 10-12 or so riding in an access road next to the main road. As I am getting ready to turn left into the alley I watch them go by, across the alley, they don't look in any direction and one kid decides it is a good idea to pop a wheelie the middle of a pretty busy little section of road near the school. The alley outlet is blind so a car coming would not have had time to see him and with his front wheel in the air he is pretty screwed. They DID have helmets on so if he were to get clobbered pulling his silly trick then I guess he has that going for him.
I think I am getting too old to put up with other peoples stupidity and I am only 32 yrs old. I am gonna be screwed as I get older.
