Impatient, Fist-waving SUV driver,
Trying to cut off a cyclist and repeatedly revving your engine in an attempt to intimidate when a cyclist maintains their lane on a shared road was behavior well worth laughing at. When I turned into Sellwood park, you rolled your window down and shouted, "Buddy, you are going to earn your death!" To which I replied "Thank You! Happy New Year!" (Minimizing derogatory mother statements were part of this year's resolution) You drove off hurriedly and I pondered what you yelled.
Is there a way to not earn your death? Can I fake it, cheat or call in a favor from a friend?
If being inconsiderate, pussilanimous, and an all around chose is your solution to health and longevity, then best of luck to you and may you attract others who share your sense of community.
