Yes, my bike is old and well worn. No, I didn't buy it at Wal-Mart (or Freddies, for that matter), its a nice bike, from a bike shop. Don't patronize or demean me based on your pretentious assumptions of your own superiority. I did go to college, I did dedicate years of my life to mastery of a skilled trade, and no, your knowledge of bike mechanics does not render you a deity. Despite being female, my mechanical aptitude and technical abilities far surpass yours. You work a service job, and I am your customer. Take my hard earned cash and say thank you, you smug little prick. Be polite to those who pay your wage, regardless of how high they rank on your 'hip' meter. Oh yeah, your skinny jeans are immensely unflattering.
