Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I didnít realize I was persecuting them by being completely unaware of them. Please, forgive me.

Who cares what the church elders think? Who are they to judge?

I have complained about this before. I live a few miles from the distribution center. I'm not sure if they have addressed it in safety meetings or maybe they are staggering the start hours, but it has improved in the last year.

I've had a few run-ins with crazy Amazon Prime delivery vans.

That said, I don't think they're any worse than the general population of drivers. They are just large, distinctive, and easy to pick out.

Well, I take it on faith that ďthatsashameĒ has some special meaning for you, but it means nothing to me. Anyhow, as you wish. Perhaps in some future thread, we can exchange cryptic messages, maybe even make a game of it.

So you don't know the definition of persecute? (Hint: it is not limited to treating someone badly because of religious matters.)

I said I didn't even know that Amazon had it's own fleet of vans, and you quoted me and told me to cut them some slack. Looks like you don't know the definition of slack, either.

Yes, my boy, youíre a dickhead, and youíve been dickhead in all the time Iíve known you here, but there is still nothing I can do to help you. But despite that, I think itís good that we had his little talk.

Try to think of a good response. I want you to have the last word.
