Our Seniors.... - August 7, 2009, 10:27 AM

This morning I was going into work late...

I had to stop at Giant to take care of a few things and buy some medicine. As I exit out onto the road, I see this old, veteran walking down the street with his cane hooked on his arm. Big, blue blocker wrap arounds and his veteran hat on.

Lol so cars are honking and just blowing by him. So as I was approaching him, the double yellow turned into a painted median in the middle of the road, so I got in neutral put down my stand and went to help him back onto the side walk.

I approach him and say "Excuse me sir, can I help you back onto the sidewalk?" He goes, "WHAT?" (lol I had my helmet on)...I repeat myself, and he goes, "Well I was just counting my change....." And I'm thinking to myself let's just get on the sidewalk so you don't get mauled by some iron beast. He walks up the curb and on the sidewalk and yells, "I don't want any trouble, but YOU ARE ACROSS THE YELLOW LINE.." then murmerd something else as I rode off....

Made me chuckle a bit. I hope he makes it to the shopping center and back home safely...

What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."
