In my day...
there were some things that simply WERE NOT DONE. Fucking with a man's ride was one of them. Apparently this is not the case today, at least not in Davis Square.
I left work late, around 1815h, tired and hungry from missing lunch two days in a row due to broken things at work. Rode over to the Diesel to hang out, parking in the normal spot right in front, in plain sight. Had a coffee and some little conversation, then went down the street to get some dinner.
Returning to my bike after dinner, maybe an hour later, I immediately notice two things:
- there is some bird shit or something on the pillion pad of my nice vinyl touring saddle, and
- some fuckwit has chosen to decorate my bike with marker, creating a design around the bird shit and connecting the dots
As the bike was parked right in front of the Diesel's great big glass door, I went inside to ask if anyone had seen this happen, or noticed anyone hanging around my bike out front. Of course, no one had.
I am posting here to serve a few purposes:
- to inform others that your ride is not safe in Davis Square on a public street in broad daylight,
- to request that anyone who may have seen this happen let me know, and
to solicit suggestions for removing black magic marker from black vinyl.
I did manage to get the marker cleaned off, so I am all set with that now. Current Mood: pissed right the hell off
