sigh. how to look bad.

25 03 2009

Sooooooo last night on my way home i was stopped in a line of cars on heading west at about 5:30. 2 idiots came riding by, passing all the stopped cars on the right, one with no helmet and made their way to the front of the traffic at the light. The light changed and i made it through just before yellow, and the 2 douchebags proceeded to do the same thing again at the next light, passed all the cars on the right and waited again at the front of the line. The light changed and traffic started moving, after that intersection the road becomes two lanes, the 2 douchebags moved into the right lane and i passed them up in front of the high school, whilst barely pedaling down the hill. The one with the helmet was bringing up the rear, i said “thanks for making us look bad”, and as i passed the one in the front with no helmet i said “nice helmet, hope you make good use of it” I’m not sure that either of them heard me with traffic and how fast i went by them, but whatever.

Normally i don’t mind people passing cars on the right, but when there is not enough room to do it safely without taking a foot off the pedal to push yourself using the curb, I’ve got a problem with it. As evidenced, I waited in line for the lights to change AFTER they went by me to the front and still passed them without trying. You aren’t getting anywhere faster by passing cars on the right just to get to a red light. You are just making those of us that are trying to follow the laws look bad to the drivers.

Hopefully ill see the 2 douchebags again soon, and try to have a constructive conversation with them about how not to be a d-bag. Or just smack the helmetless one in the back of the head.
