I can just picture the look on my mother’s face after she reads this and the language…and no, she did NOT teach me THAT!

I have been riding my bike to work for over 3 weeks now and it takes me down one of the busiest streets in Buffalo, Main St. Not only is it busy but part of it is under construction. You think that is dangerous? Read on…

This morning, Steph and I went for a run down Sheridan Dr. on the sidewalk. Just as we reached a shopping center that has a Starbucks, I noticed a black SUV alongside me. Instinct told me that it will make the turn and cut me off. Boy, was I right!

This black GMC SUV with tinted glass was driven by some fatcowho who (1) thinks she is the only living specimen on earth at 5:30 in the morning, (2) is too busy yakking on the cell phone with her gigolo; (3) is so stupid she thinks cars have the right of way over pedestrians or (4) is a PHAT dooshbag who despises runners or bikers because they look better than her.

As she cut in front of me, I slapped her back window…she stopped!!! HOLY MOLEY! And what did she do??? Not one but 2…..TWO birdies! The fatcowhodooshbag actually had enough guts and strength to flip me “two birds”!! And this is coming from some fatcowho in Amherst!

So what did I do? I laughed at her and gave her the finger (which coincidentally is the only sign language I know) and went on my merry way!

    Know exactly what you mean. Out walking on Tuesday and on two different occasions in the course of one hour I almost got nailed by two different women driving in Williamsville. Don’t these people watch where they are going? People wake up and look around. There are other people besides you on the sidewalks and crosswalks. Thanks for letting me vent.

    Sam my man!! well all, I was right behind speedy Sam, as this women came driving in, probably half asleep, it was about 5:30am. Like I said all are not awake at this hour, only us runners, bikers, etc. . But my thoughts were, both were careless and yes nuts all around, even one that slapped a black SUV. Never know who you are dealing with, be careful samo!! Love, Steph

    Ed-dee-outs in black SUV’s are the worse! Well those and the gray primed pick ups with the numbers 3 or 8 on the back window.

    Train well!
