Totally got buzzed by a car today. It was partially my fault because I was being a gutter-hugger by riding too close to the curb instead of asserting myself into the lane.
I knew better, too. It was on a road where I know I have to take the full lane, or I'll be passed way too closely.
I guess I was just day dreaming or something.
That inches-away car sure did bring me back to reality though!
That'll learn 'em!
I still have yet to perfect what I think is an awesome response to stuff like that: the emphatic Thumbs Down. Compared to the Bird it is less inciting and more shaming.
And truth be told, that's exactly what I'm looking to levy upon people who are driving inconsiderately or recklessly or carelessly near me. I don't want to instigate a confrontation. I want to shame and haze the driver so they're aware of their actions.
