They come in all shapes, sizes, colors and classes. There are bike lanes just for buses, bikes and those making immediate right turns only. Plus in rural areas there are laws that read that if a biker is in the right lane you must surrender it and if you are in a driveway looking to get out or take a right you must pull your car back to allow the biker or pedestrian to pass. There are tint laws here but I have never seen so many blackout tints in my life. Plus you get people high as hell, fighting with their women in public and people actually getting in the middle of the street and yelling at cars, buses, pedestrians and bikers and they throw bottles at times.
A general rule of biking is to bike facing traffic. You get screamed at for that. But in this state, there are more accidents than any other and most fatal and in several a biker or pedestrian is killed by a dumbass driver. These drivers exit driveways and streets into major roads without even slowing down. Yes, not even slowing down. They have me on the defensive always and I see them swing from that spot to the far left and they often cause an accident behind them due to their shitty driving etiquette.
Now back to our story. I have had homeless people follow me when walking asking for this and that, me saying no and them following me and eventually calling me names and throwing a bottle at me. The first time it happened a punk did this after a half mile where he actually had to jog to keep up with my walking rate. When he spit at me and threw a bottle and hit me and tried to run off, I chased him kicked the back of his knee and threw him onto a main road and said do not ever let me see you on this road again, I did not.
Next, after being in a hospital months ago a shithead decided he did not have to wait and see anything as he had cars to his left and had a blind spot there and could not see if there were cars coming or if anyone was coming in the other direction. So, I am coming in the other direction, I brake turn sharp and throw my bike to avoid him and he calls me a motherfucker and I called him a shit for brains redneck. He sees me and jumps out and is a good 250 and about my height. He says I had the right off way and I said no you have to actually have to stop at that sign and see if you do. I also mentioned if we did not have that issue he would’ve been hit from behind by a car he did not see and to be fair neither of us could see each other because the property did not trim the trees. He is in my face and I say come with it. I said come on as after I take your one or two shots and brush them off you are done. That ended as my sister was in a car behind the one on the left and she gave us both shit.
A couple of months ago I am in a casino to bet, see a movie and have dinner. I am stopping to go to a kiosk and some ultra fat guy is gawking at some woman and she told him 4 times that I heard to leave her alone. He did not and he started calling her names as well as being a racist. I am sorry but a let’s say 30 year old attractive white woman playing slots is not interested in your 60 inch waist 30 inch chest 60 year old non white race. I say move along. This ass grabs me and tries to spin me and I stop, he falls and I laugh. Then he swings and misses and then says mind ya bizness (yes just like that) and I laughed and he threw a bottle of beer at me. I get into a stance and say bring it, he does not. Security comes and he gets arrested.
Next is someone dealing drugs and gets pissed I did not stop adn again name calling. I stop my bike he starts running and actually runs out of steam, I laugh at him and say if that is what you had you better take your rage elsewhere. I ride and he tries again and I said this time I will run at you twice as fast and smash you through the air into the damn ground. Then the oh I thought so punk ass bitch.
Now is today, people here walk three across and do not yield for bikes even where there is no bike lane and today alone I got forced into jumping the curb 6 times and almost hit by a car and I got bonked at. Three others were texting and in the middle of the sidewalk and wearing headsets and I stopped and pulled their fucking headsets off and said watch where you are going and be able to hear dumbass. Next is an idiot carrying 4 bags and taking up the whole sidewalk and waddling from left to right and I said excuse me and he did not hear and I repeated and he waddled left and I went left and he said you’re supposed to say something. I answer, I did moron and you did not hear me. Next victim, a homeless punk pushing a cart and not looking. I am going against traffic close to the airport in the bike lane and he wanders into my area while looking back and I go to the sidewalk.He curses at me and I slam on the brakes as he says next time I will kill you and that is what the bike lane is for. I say well you weren’t looking and went in between and being that you threatened me, let’s fucking go. He starts saying bring it and I am coming, I dropped my jacket with all my money and phone in it, which is a pretty serious deterrent to avoid fighting as all of these idiots have nothing to lose. I said talking shit to me gets you killed and not looking gets your cart kicked as I go by next time. Oddly enough, his ex wife is at the bus stop and she explains it was his fault as she broke up with him for the last time and he does not mind jail as it is better than being homeless. She says she is too and if she wasn’t hitting a bus to go to welfare and said her age and the bus was coming, I was going to offer her some options and I would have helped her. I could not. Last is a dumbass crossing against traffic, calls out cars and calls me an n word, while he is black. He clearly motioned to me, used a kill shot pose and called out punk ass biker. I had it now. I jump out grab his ass and said you were talking to me so here I am punk. Now traffic is coming and cops are always a minute away. We are about to get hit by cars and I grab him and pull him to the medium. I say you motioned to me and what do you want to do? Nothing. I walk and he calls me a punk bitch. I go back and push him into traffic but nobody was there or I would be fucked. Now he is getting froggy and calling me a bitch and I say swing. Mind you again, money, cell, important shit and he is young missing teeth and I easily with my weaker arm pushed him into traffic. He goes to swing and I go on defense and he keeps with his punk ass bitch shit and crosses the street and I said if I am the punk ass why are you the one crossing the street. I am right here and I went to name calling. Now I do realize I have to start actively doing my old school defensive and offensive drills at home to make these non issue 30 seconds confrontations as this is pissing me off as I have this type of shit where I do not care how big someone is as this means they have little juice and maybe no flexibility and now these smaller guys that I can knock out as in this instance I grabbed him and pulled him to the medium and he said get your punk ass hands off me and I said these punk ass hands kept you from getting hit by cars and someone will call the cops and I am not dealing with cops for these bullshit scuffles with low class punks looking to start shit when I have stuff to lose. So, I have to end fights in less than a minute and will be training 2 hours a day on that as the next one that does this gets knocked the fuck out fast or they break their hand on my head.
