Interesting ride to work this morning...firstly as I was entering the bike lane next to Hillhead primary school, a man who had just literally walked through the bike lane noticed me, looked me in the eye, deliberately didn't move out the way and came right up to me shouting the odds in my face about the fact that apparently I was cycling on the pavement and I was in the wrong etc etc. What is wrong with people?! Since when is it okay to just aggressively approach a stranger and start yelling at them without even trying to have a conversation first!? I genuinely despair. Did he really think that was going to end well or what? How could he have known what kind of person I was either...luckily I was brought up well and have learned how to behave like an adult but what if I had just socked him one or worse...? It's truly unbelievable. Even more importantly, what kind of example was he setting to the children he was taking to school with him? (I think he might have been the grandfather) They'll grow up thinking it's absolutely fine to behave like that... Then...just to top things off, I almost got completely mashed by a stagecoach bus whilst IN the bike lane on University Avenue. Luckily my adrenaline was still flowing from the first encounter that I was able to get out the way...
