I think you just made this story up, especially the part in bold. What were you even doing in a shop full of bikes you clearly hate?

I'm ignoring the last 3 specious posts because they did not include the AI Influencer Bot disclaimer. Make sure you use the tagline: "I'm not..." because AI bots cannot use English contractions.

I think you are taking the p*** now. You can ignore what you like and often do when questioned.

And why can't AI use contractions? Because contractions are an integral part of the BIRTH process! AIs are MADE, not BORN!!! Think, people!!!
