(Angry driver physique compared to typical cyclist physique) Magda was recently upset about comments about her weight, and the reference to concentration camps was an insult to her polish heritage. I had a bit of sympathy at that stage, but the tide has definitely turned. She's an angel isn't she? Surely not the sort of person who'd encourage GBH on our less motorised two-wheeled road using cousins? So this has frustrated me a lot and brought out my mean side. Sorry you guys had to see this. She made one valid point in her starvation fuelled rage - cyclists who ride on the road when there is a bike path sh!t me too (and I am a cyclist). It never ceases to amaze me that people ride on the road along anzac at moore park and up alison next to the race course when there is a double lane bike path there - seems to be all for the sake of cutting off about 10 seconds worth of travel time at the intersection of alison and darley. just silly. But this does not apply to bike paths shared with parking - given the choice I'll take my chances on the road rather than get a door opened on me. But as to her other points: 1 - "her car in my back yard". Sadly, the road is a training ground for many professional cyclists. Most of them train in the early morning or on sundays when the traffic is thinner, so on a 4 lane highway, surely she can just go around? My advice - get your sausage fingers and turn your steering wheel a few degrees to the right and go around. Oh, and don't ever drive your car in my back yard. 2- "do not want to see lycra bums" - a bit rich coming from the goodyear blimp given we've had to endure her saddlebags on the telle for a good 20 years. A person in lycra is no more insulting than a chick with a muffin top and ugg boots, but that does not get a hunger-fuelled rant on national telle. My advice - people in glass houses should not throw stones. Particularly the michelin man in drag. 3 - "take off your tip tap shoes". If SPD's give her the sh!ts with the sound they make on the ground, I'd suggest she never ever ever visit martin place because she'd likely explode from all the pressure (unless the tip-tap of high heels is somehow exempt from her rage). My advice, get over it you sweaty sow, and take some courses in anger management. 4 - "put it in a different gear". Fck you tubby - you are in a car, you go round. Stop being so angry with the world. Maybe it is all the sugar. My advice, cut down on the twinkies. 5 - Balancing at the lights - Not sure why this angers her - is she upset about their motor skills? A real mystery as to why she is upset by this - perhaps being top heavy (ie from the ankles up), having good balance is an insult to her boombah heritage. My conclusion, get over it you vast slug, and have a salad. 6 - "Just open the door" - again, magda, screw you. You represent everything that is bad about the attitude of drivers to cyclists. You sitting there in your plus sized moo moo, with your kankles, your triple chin, your meat wings, and your jowells, driving your cage and endangering the lives of cyclists because you have anger management issues. My advice, keep your mouth shut - it will do you a favour in more than one way. Ahh - that feels better.
