Yesterday i went to the station to travel for a ride with a mate. Running late i missed the 9am train by a while, grabbed a coffee etc. Went to go through the barriers for the 9.30 train just behind another 'cyclist' who had a strop at the gate staff who did'nt let him through (no ticket).
I then noticed his bike did'nt quite match his shellsuit/trainers as as it was a Pace/Middleburn/Hope/Spin wheeled/Spd equipped singlespeed Orange (P7) hardtail retrofest and therefore pretty niche, even by STW standards.
Now that he'd got my attention he then went to the exit barriers and tried to plead his way though without a ticket so he could catch his train so i followed him, tapped him on the shoulder and said 'thats not your ****ing bike is it pal?'
We proceeded to have a 'conversation' where i used the F and the C word alot and told him i knew exactly where it was burgled from as it came from my friend and neighbours shed last year! I had called to the station staff to call the rozzers whilst this chat was going on. Once he knew i knew the score he leant the bike against WH Smiths and said "Go on then, take it, its not worth the hassle".
By which time the transport police turned up and nicked him!
The stupid moron would have got away with it if he'd have just legged it first off as i was'nt going to leave both bikes And my coffee unattended to give chase!
What a knobber!
