Maybe this is normal everywhere else and I’m going to get yelled at, but I hate MIDDLE AGED MEN IN LYCRA (Any age, really) CYCLING TO WORK like they’re a goddamned car when it suits them (you know, going 25 in a 60 right in front of me so all I can occupy my brain with is how not to squash them), and then POOF!!, turning back into a cyclist when the light turns red, leaving me and everyone else stuck at the light as they scurry up onto the sidewalk to cross.

If you wanna use your bike like it’s a car, then you sit at the goddamn light with the rest of us.

Because where I live, I pay taxes to upkeep a lovely adjacent to the main roads bike path.

I also hate the guy who was biking on a main road during rush hour pulling a bike trailer with his toddler in it. He wore a helmet. Junior did not. I followed him into our parking lot and asked him if he realized he was endangering his child and he threw an absolute fit, telling me what a bitch I was and how the roads are safer than the sidewalks.

Which I thought was funny. Because he was a total sidewalk jumper at the red lights.

So apparently they were safe enough for him when he didn’t want to be stuck in the traffic he created.

Okay. Wow. Rant over.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
