Stupid B***ch

I needed to blow off a little steam today after my commute to school and back.
i had my first close call of this riding season and it was all because of a stupid blonde gal on her cell phone. i was driving to school in the left lane and there was a good amount of traffic. so there i was driving along with the rest of the cattle down the road with this little gal on her cell phone chatting with her OMG little girlfriend. as i was driving i glanced down at my speedo and noticed out of my Peripheral that the gal was coming into my lane. i look over at her and she didnt even check me mirror or blind spot. I was riding on the right portion of my lane so i was about two to three feet away from her when i saw her coming, i then banked left as hard as i could to avoid her hitting me. while i was banking i wasnt able to hit my horn but i was able to get my finger up and let her know i didnt appreciate her stupidity. she then swerved back into her lane and didnt say sorry or anything she kept looking forward and was acting as if the whole thing didnt happen. and then not five miles down the road one of the bolts on my shifter came loose and the shifter started dangling... sorry about the rant and rave but i needed to blow some steam off. so ride safely and avoid blondes on cell phones.

I hate idiots on cellphones.

Hopefully that'll be your last close call of the season!

Not that I'm aware of, but if some fool is going to cut me off I'd rather that she was an absolute stunner than a ugly boat anchor.

After all she may want to come and hand feed you grapes while you recover in hospital and that boat anchor could tip the bed up causing you more damage.

Well good thing you kept your cool and paid attention to react properly. This kind of thing happens to me at least once a week. I've got about an hour commute to campus myself and I dare the say the most dangerous time for me on the bike is anywhere within 3 miles of the campus. Lots of kids who haven't been driving very long in the first place.

Sweet young things with the God blessed cell phone glued to their left ear.

Yup, been there, done that!

They seem to mind the Stebel air horn a lot better than they did the OEM unit.

ahahaha i agree with u on this one...although i reckon a hot girl would frustrate me even more, the fact that she was hot but DUMB! i like my girls with a little common sense. but i see where your going with the boat anchor though.

on a seperate note, its a good thing your ok redneck.

Thanks for letting me rant, i know that it happens to us all and that it will probably happen several more times this season.
to answer the question about hotness she was very good looking till she decided that my lane was officially hers (you know the typical woman thing), after that she wasnt very attractive.

i would rather have the boat a anchor and that is because if she as hot and feeding me grapes she would also be on her cell phone. as she was talking she wouldnt be paying attention to me and would cause me to choke and die from grape asphyxiation ...

I was once being stupid and riding in the right side of my lane with a guy behind me. He was being impatient and before I knew what was happening, he passed me in my lane.....hitting my elbow with his mirror in the process.

I don't think I've ever been that mad on the road since!

It's harder to do in heavy traffic......I never ride in the kill zone. I'm either behind a car (that's in the lane beside me) or I speed up and ride the bumper of the car in front of me.....so the person next to me can obviously see me. If I'm in heavy traffic, I'll ride in the right side of the left most lane so I only have one lane of kill zone to deal with.

Ride like you're invisible.

I wasn't riding at the time, but was still invisible, and apparently on mute. On the slab with my wife and chatty cathy on her cell starts drifting into my front left fender. I lay on the horn....and get nothing. not even a glimpse. Starts drifting again and I again lay on the horn and nothing. I speed up so I am just in front giving her the look out my window. Completely oblivious. If these morons can't hear or see an ACTUAL CAR HORN or the giant red SUV it's connected to, good luck on a bike.

Stay safe, they are all trying to kill you!

at least the hot chick saw gave the lane back grandma put 3 inches between me an the k rail an 2 between me an her last year and precede to curse me an give me the finger. I called the police an gave her plate they said they just a ha a call from an elderly lay claiming I tried to pass her an muscle her out of the left lane by squeezing between her and the center dived. they wanted to ticket me. I should have not help back the urge to kick her PT cruiser or bust her window with my kevlar an carbon wrapped fist I sure was plenty close enough.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Riding in the passenger seat of our mini-turd yesterday, out of nowhere(seemingly) I told my wife "The girl in the Blue BMW is going to try and get in your lane." She did, but stopped and my wife wondered how I knew.

Yes - it's amazing how much better I am at predicting behavior since I got back on the bike.

A little better than half the time I can "see" lane changes or stupid behavior before it happens.

Pay attention and trust your intuition!

I know that ive ranted about this subject a few time, myself. Ive posted up a couple stories. Last year, it was a stupid woman who cut me off in a traffic circle...i took off her side mirror for her. There was another time (or three) that i punched the car's window to get a drivers attention. I always like that one...the look ftom the driver is comical! Its even better if you can punch the windoe and flip the bird at the same moment.

There have been a few cars that got kicked as well, and taillight that got busted out by my boot that was memorable. Its nothing personal, they are trying to kill me through inattention, and im trying to stay alive and un-crashed!





.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Glad you're ok. I hate stuff like that too. Mixed blessing, here in BC it's now illegal to talk on your phone while driving. As far as I'm concerned it's not really a problem for the non-morons but whatever.

Illegal in Cali also, but that doesn't stop a whole bunch of turds from doing it.
