"Entitlement" - continued

Greetings Readers

I guess I am not done with my post from yesterday. I forgot to comment on another issue that was pointed out by the blogger

So this bloggers says he/she was almost hit by this vehicle. This vehicle was described in full detail not to mention the route of travel from one side of the street to the other side of the street in Downtown Denver.

If I remember correctly the "truck" went across four lanes of street and nearly sideswiped the blogger.

Come on. He/she saw all this and still almost got hit? Get the fuck out of here! That is one serious fucked up commuter. He/she saw all this and could not avoid almost getting hit?! I would have slowed down or seen this coming, which according to the blogger he/she saw this truck coming from one side of the street to the other. I would have moved onto the sidewalk, closer to the curb, backed up or hell anything else beside using my "entitlement" to the road.

Then, the blogger has the nerve to say he/she could understand if it was a mail delivery truck (UPS, FedEX, DHL, etc) he/she would have forgiven the truck driver for almost hitting him/her by crossing four lanes of street and in a rush. As opposed to a truck that has advertising on it. What the fuck does it matter? A truck is a truck - when he/she eventually gets sideswiped by a Floral truck I am pretty sure that he/she will not give a fuck what type of truck it is. No way.

At the end of his/her post he/she then writes that well at least when the tv news people come the truck with advertising will get free promotion/advertising. Well, the blogger should wake up since I hardly think that he/she would make the news about being hit by a truck. Unless there was a news truck in the same location, perhaps he/she gets killed, or no news to report.

Another story that was "milked" by that blogger for an event to be blogged about.

Clearly the blogger states he/she saw the truck go from one side of the street to the other where he/she was. Get the fuck out of here!

Readers, I can see the image clearly. He/she is watching this truck from the far right lane and watching the truck coming across four lanes straight at him/her. The blogger's knows he/she has the legal right to be on the road, but he/she is not moving! He/she is acting like Rosa Parks - I'm not moving.

Shaking my head in bewilderment of that blogger

Today's picture - well that is me from the neck down. I wanted to look at myself and see how my looks. Yes, I am still thin, but I still love my thighs though. By the way, don't you just love my Texas bike jersey?! I love the back even more.

Until the next time

Wow. It is funny to go through your blog and see how much trash you talk about your fellow cyclists and how little comprehension you have of humor. You have thoroughly entertained me. It is very interesting to see what you, an obvious expert in everything related to cycling, would have done if you were me. After reading your blog, I now know how ignorant I truly am - I will stop thinking of myself as Rosa Parks and I will get on the sidewalk where I belong!

I love your thighs too!

Thanks for the comment.

Me. No expert at all. I am sarcastic, no patience most of the time. I trash talk and perhaps I get off it.

I do like to think I do know more, but I don't. It's my personality.

Don't take my advice, but hopefully a second look/thought on what you do/think.

Yet, you can tell/write me "go Fuck myself" you won't be the first and definitely not the last.

And in closing thank you for giving me topics to write about on what I do or think which I too take for granted.

with great admiration
