as you may have read in one of my earlier posts, i’m not a big fan of bicyclists. and that’s being nice. but today, i’m willing to give +1 (yes, one) to a bicyclist who deserves some kudos.
i was patiently waiting my turn to cross the street (as i always do… ha) and for the yellow traffic light to turn to red. finally, finally, it makes the change and i proceed to step into the crosswalk when a car turns right and stops abruptly, since i am now in the crosswalk. reaching the other side of the trail of white stripes, the driver yells to me, “great job!” and starts to squeal away. that’s when a bicyclist in scrubs calls out to him, “dude, it is a crosswalk.”
i chuckled to myself and thought, “plus one for the bicyclist!” it’s not a statement i make easily. you know what? i’m going to give him +1 for the comment, +1 for waiting his turn at the crosswalk and not running me over like a maniac, +1 for wearing a helmet whilst biking, and +1 for wearing scrubs. that’s four points. thank you sir for making me realize that i don’t detest all bicyclists… just all of them, minus one.
