So, I rode for a good 4-5 hours yesterday with nothing to drink, and had gotten a bit thirsty - decided to stop by wally world and go in for something to drink and an air conditioned place to sit, and the mcdonalds in the wally world worked out nice. Once I got in there I decided I might as well go ahead and grab some food, so - I stuck around in there, I even saw the people where were about to seriously piss me off, and thought nothing of it. I stay in there for probably 10 minutes, and as I'm walking out the front door, I can see my bike, with a grown woman standing next to it, and her little rugrat (7-8 I guess) sitting on it, that irritated the hell out of me to start with - what if he'd of made it fall over trying to get on it, or if it'd have fallen over period with him sitting on it - if it'd of landed on him I'd of been looking at a lawsuit, not to mention the damage it would do to him. But then, when I got closer (my eye's aren't so great), the kid has an ice cream cone in his hand, and the ice cream has melted allllll over both of his hands, and dripped EVERYWHERE, all over the seat, tank, even up on the speedometer (how I have no fucking clue), and there were ice cream handprints on both handlebars, everything was freaking sticky. I get right up to the bike (helmet in hand), and the lady looks right at me, and didn't say a word, didn't even move her kid. I was absolutely furious, but I'm trying my best to stop being mean to people, so all I said was "I have to leave", and she said "oh, sorry" and got her kid off my bike, and HANDED ME a DIRTY napkin (that was already covered in ice cream) and walked off.
I had to go back into the store and buy some windex to clean the bike off satisfactorily before going anywhere. I would never let my child (when I have them) sit on someone elses vehicle that I didn't know and ask permission to do first, much less - with his little paws filthy and getting the other persons property dirty, and what burns me the most, is it was like my showing up inconvienced her by making her and her kid leave. I don't think I could have been more upset at that moment (unless I looked over and saw my girlfriend in the backseat of a car with another guy - then I'd of probably been the most pissed possible, and someone would've wound up dead) but I am glad that I was able to handle it the way I did, Coy's new good attitude 1, old bad attitude 2039482. Slowly fixing the old problem.
