PS. would it be wrong to take the hideous purple anodized bar ends from the bike carcass locked up at bloor & roxton? Theyre really freaking ugly. That bike has less purple ano components every time I see it. I may as well get while the getting is good.

if it's been sitting there then owner ain't coming back so i say go for it. i missed an opportunity to pick at an abandoned bike near me once and it has been haunting me ever since.

An ******* in a black tinted SUV came a few inches from sideswiping me 15 metres before a red on front street at spadina this evening.

He rolled down his window to impart me with a few words. Apart from making up the rules of the road and telling them to me, he told me that he had kids in the car, and if the kids weren't there he would TEACH me the rules of the road (he implied he would be using his fists to teach me. Maybe a signaling lesson?). I asked him if he really wanted to fight me on the street right there. He responded that he wanted to KILL me. Yes, I asked him to repeat it, this guy said he would murder me if his kids were not there. I told him he was a really good influence for his kids and then I painted a lovely abstract impressionist painting of phlegm right where he looks through the windshield. Someone in the next lane went "OOOOOOoooOOOOOoooHHH!!!!" and told us both to cool it, so its safe to say we were making a scene!

Then the guy starts tailgating me, buzzed me again, waited until I caught up, and then yelled some stuff at his closed passenger window and sped off.

I should have just asked him if he and his kids had met jesus...

Obviously his wife is getting some on the side from a cyclist. Glad you're safe and he didn't whip out an Uzi or some other proxy reflecting his inability to gain penile tumescence.

Wowza. Sounds like a bit of a scary situation. I feel like you told me a summer time version of a similar story in which you spit on a guy's car. Sorry to hear you keep running into A*sholes.

I learned to hate my lobster claw gloves today, now that I can't give a reasonable finger anymore.

Gaaaaad! That story makes me want to go tip an SUV (with the help of some friends)

Yeah, the lobster claw point is not nearly as effective.

I find screaming drivers get more enraged when you don't pay attention to their rants. I mean, it takes two for communication, right? He/she might as well be screaming at the wall if I'm not listening. Sometimes I give in and shake my fist at them (my classic response), but most of the time I won't even look in their direction. I think it makes them feel dumb.

Agreed. I get perverse pleasure out of just smiling and waving at security guards who tell me "you can't lock your bike there/come in through this entrance" etc. It drives them nuts. Then on the way back out a "have a great day" accompanied by another smile and wave tops things off nicely.
