Not a near miss - not even close

  1. I thought I'd post this up here because it is such a rare event.



    Today on the way to work I encountered no idiots, morons, SMIDSY's, no close calls, no one trying to race me around the round-a-bouts. I didn't see anyone talking on their phones, eating, drinking, smoking, changing CD's. Everyone was on their best behaviour, they even used their indicators properly.

    I'd better be extra careful on the way home, they're probably just trying to lull me into a false sense of security. Bstrds.

  2. Was there even anyone on the road?

    It may be a precursor to a zombie apocalypes

  3. Yep, usual amount of traffic, in fact most of the same cars I see every morning.

    I'm actually worried now, because maybe they all knew something I didn't.

  9. Pull the other one!

    I dunno why the coppers dont ride unmarked bikes. The number of times I see a car up front going strangely (too slow, weaving in lane,...) and then when I catch up theyre on the phone or texting...
