To the sidewalk entitled bicyclist. People walking on the sidewalk, aren’t expecting to nearly be plowed down, by some hipster flying around the corner, without a care in the world. You came within inches of running over my puppy. When I exclaimed “WTF?” as I was of course caught of guard. You stupidly (and here’s where a helmet may have saved you some trouble) turn around to not only flip me off (still while in motion and on your way) but let loose with a string of profanity directed at me...and then you crashed right into a utility pole because you weren’t looking. I couldn’t help but burst out laughing, I couldn’t help but start clapping, and enjoyed telling you (because you had the gall to ask me for help) one simple word: karma. Had you apologized? Yeah. I would have helped. But you didn’t. I felt bad for a second, then I just laughed it off and went about my day. Your entitled asses bitched about and demanded more bicycle friendly streets, more lanes etc..and you STILL use the sideswalks after wishes were granted. Thank you dude for a beautiful moment of a Darwin nomination.
