First of all I am not going to diss bicyclists but I am going to diss dumbass bicyclists. A lot of people ride bicycles on the island. I can understand that. The island is only 20 miles long. I can imagine not even needing a car here.
I really think some people need to take bicycle lessons of some sort. I was driving down one of the main streets the other day. A bicyclist was coming toward me. I always thought that if you were on a bicycle you rode with the traffic not against it. Anyway that was the first rule that the dumbass broke. He was a very well dressed preppy sort of guy about 25 years old. He didn’t really look like a dumbass.
As soon as I saw him talking on his cell phone with one hand and holding a cup of coffee with the other hand I knew him for what he was –DUMBASS!
He was also carrying this book under his arm. I guess he got a lot out of it. (OK, he didn’t really have the book with him but I’m sure he read it.)
He obviously couldn’t have his hands on the handle bars because of the phone and the coffee. Needless to say, his bike swerved into the oncoming traffic which was me. Thank goodness I drive like the granny that I am–slowly– because I was able to slam on my brakes and swerve around him at the same time cursing him like a sailor.
Today I came across another dumbass bicyclist. Our Main Street is a one way. I was driving slowly down Main Street when this dumbass comes careening around a corner from one of the side streets, crosses directly in front of my car like I wasn’t even there. I wonder if people like that have a death wish.
Anyway my point–DUMBASS BICYCLISTS SUCK!
