Let's Talk about Entitlement

Um, so the dickhead riding down a driving lane at 10 mph doesn't feel privileged?

State law requires that you try to keep up with the speed of traffic. That is one little nuance that Portland cyclists seem to know nothing about.

I FEEL entitled to tell you, IAnon, that your pseudo-intellectual "lesson" will not actually teach anyone anything and your have self parodied yourself with this internet "vent."

As a personal rule if people use entitlement or privilege in this manner when speaking to me, I usually either change the subject, if I like the person, or I get as far fucking away from that person as possible. Let them have their Portland social justice clique, actions speak louder than words anyway, it shouldn't affect shit in your life.

Can we just NOT talk about entitlement, for once?

Blabby misinterprets traffic law for cyclists yet again, just like all the rest of the entitled motorists.

Blah blah blah... it's real easy. When I drive I try to give bicyclists a little extra room in case they wedge their tire in some shit or somehow get randomly flung into my car and when I ride my bike I treat cars like they are 4000 lb. pieces of metal operated by morons hurtling along narrow cleared spaces surrounded on all sides by visual obstructions.

I try to be aware of bike lanes and look in my mirrors or out the side and rear window (especially when I have seen bikes) and when I ride my bike I check around corners or look down streets before I blast out from a side street, I don't wear headphones, and occasionally I look behind myself to see what's going on back there.

I don't know about most people but hosing blood off my hood or scraping myself off the pavement don't sound like fun ways to spend my afternoon.

wow. Short version; fuck your car, especially fuck you when you almost kill me with it. (Just to add my two cents: unmarked cross walks mean I can walk OR ride across and your Mercedes drivin yuppy bitch ass has to stop.)

Wait, is your name Mike?

"I can walk OR ride across and your Mercedes drivin yuppy bitch ass has to stop"

But note that this does not constitute an attitude of privilege or entitlement.

Oh who gives a fuck, same tired asshole arguments, you all fucking suck.

Just like I feel entitled to wipe my ass with my neighbor's iron maiden tshirt after I drop a deuce in his yard...

entitlement is the new hipster

Alice Cooper: Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.
Pete: In fact, isn't "Milwaukee" an Indian name?
Alice Cooper: Yes, Pete, it is. Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."
Wayne Campbell: I was not aware of that.

LET'S ALL SAY BAD WORDS! testicle! human tissue! big biker legs!

This is fake.

All you assholes that aren't hyperlooping yet are just slowing the rest of us down.

Haha, I like how this went from "rant on abstract subject with bike-related example" to "BUT IN THE SPECIFIC INSTANCE THAT I HAVE IN MIND, BIKES = EVIL" in one comment.

This is why I love you guys. Keepin' it relevant.

For a moment I thought maybe this I,A was going to be talking about something real and possibly important; but as I kept reading I was sadly mistaken.

Typical hipster bicyclist who makes tips is ranting about random people not appreciating his/her boring lifestyle.

LOL, dislike my comment all you like, but Blabby and the rest of you cagers don't know shit about traffic laws as they apply to cyclists. For example, just look up ORS 814.430(2)(c), otherwise know as 'Bicyclists Allowed Full Lane."
