maybe he's angry because if you're converting people alternative transportations it will take away from his business. +1 for handling it so well. i probably would have laid back and come back later to slash his tires or something. though in his business he probably gets a good discount on tires and stuff

I saw a girl out for run last week talking on the cell phone (she was the one running, and talking) - wasn't sure if I should be impressed or horrified. Decided to just be glad it wasn't me on the other end of the line - I can imagine how that conversation was going.

Some Seattle bikers just punch or kick the quarter panel of 'offenders' and pedal off. Overheard some cagers talking 'you don't wanna tick off a cyclist, cuz...'
+1 Someone will remember a broken side mirror for a long time.
