    You’d be needing soap on a rope for that one if you’d have got nicked..

    Indeed.

    Oh, be under no illusions. I fully acknowledge my idiocy, fairly proud of it tbh.

    Likewise.

    fairly proud of it

    Not so much, but it still tickles me.

    All that aside, my penis is so magnificent someone I’ve apparently never met has heard about it. Regardless of your point of view, that IS awesome…

    I saw an awesome example of cyclists doing this a couple a weeks ago.

    Two cyclists approaching each other on the white lines in between the traffic were seemingly having a game of “not looking at you chicken”. They colided, it was much laughter for all. (except the lady whose car they fell into when they clattered to the ground.

    Oh how I’d love to plough through some of them…

    Especially the ones who don’t thank you for stopping for them at a Zebra crossing.

    Rude gets.

    I should add I don’t want flowers or a box of chocolate for stopping for them.

    Just some form of acknowledgment… A little head nod, a raised hand, a thumbs up would all be good.

    I tend to be pretty relaxed about most pedestrians’ behaviour, with 2 exceptions – the head down smartphone user (watched one have a near miss just outside Graves Gallery, Sheffield and she look furious that someone had given her a gentle toot on the horn to distract her from her reverie!), the others are the people who chance a crossing through moving traffic within a stones throw of a Pelican Crossing (especially in Hathersage on a busy weekend).

    If its particular dumb I’ll hit the horn at the closest point then watch them jump!

    Just some form of acknowledgment…

    I was walking through a car park the other day and stopped to let a woman reverse out of a parking space.

    She made a bit of a meal out of it but I waited.

    At the end she held her hand up to say thanks and I did the same.

    She then wound her window down and started screaming at me for having the wrong look on my face whilst acknowledging her thanks.

    very odd.

    Sorry about that – wrong time of the month and all that….. 😳

    People are relying on their ears more than they realise. I see this all the time on the back lanes around work.

    Best thing to do is pick a course that sees you passing right behind them and then say ‘heads up’ in their ear. Teaches them to be a bit more aware!

    The jes extender can be worn whilst sleeping, but may become uncomfortable for those that toss and turn.

    I think that youtube link should be on a PSA.

    OK that’s in my GCHQ browser history…

    Sometimes in slow moving traffic I actually slow down or stop to let people waiting cross. But about 50% of the time they just stare at you in incredulity. Like you’re daring them, and are gonna run them down.

    Then there is this sort of thing to consider:

    What car do you drive? I’ll happily shit on your bonnet as you wait. That the sort of acknowledgement you want for the supreme gesture of not running me over as I go about my business?

    I find a good long blast on the horn gets them shifting pretty quick smart.

    The best piece of advice I was given about driving was from my dad when he told me to treat everyone else on the road like they are complete and utter idiots who could, and probably will, do something completely unpredictable at any time. It turns out to be pretty true in the most part and is a piece of advice that has served me well wether I’m on my bike, in my car or as a pedestrian.

    No point in getting wound up, life is too short.
