    Egged

    Anyone else ever been egged during your commute?

    New PB for completing my hill climb, but I lost the turds in a Subdivision.

    Oh well, I guess Eggs happen

    I was just road riding when the high school got out and some dumb kids through a pencil at me but it missed, they got the finger.

    A minute later a pickup drove by and yelled something at me so they got the finger treatment and they started slowing down, so I called there bluff and waved my hand as if to tell them to pull over and started pedaling faster off the seat and they ended up driving away.

    Usually now I let it go, but if I got eggs id probably get pissed again.

    *sigh* I hate teens-with-something-to-prove. They worry me more then all the dogs and cars when I'm riding on the road.

    I'd be super pissed.

    You get treated nicer when you use all of your fingers when you wave... not just the middle one...

    That's a load of crap.

    You know now that I have had several hours to stew or cool off, I seem to be flipping between the two. I wonder what I would have done spur of the moment if I had of caught them. I mean considering the night I had, I would hate to have vented on any of the morons in that minivan.

    I have been yelled at, single fingered, honked at, this was a first........ maybe a last.


    Well like I said, I at least got a really good hill climb out of it.

    well, you seem to have a pretty good attitude about it. as we all know; "$#!+ happens." You can be angry at the world, or you can search for positives and move on.

    hopefully those kids find a better way to spend their time.

    I got hit onetime with a coin or something, couldn't tell what it was. So I got the plate number down called the cops and when the cops caught them a few blocks later with a tip I think they pointed a gun at me. I just laughed and waived as I passed them sitting on the curb in handcuffs.

    Well, I've had cans tossed from vehicles and had folks egg on their dogs at me, but never been egged. Even witnessed a guy take a swerve at my wife while she was on her bike (he's lucky I was more concerned about her than catching him!).

    Funny thing is... the two young guys in the sport truck that chucked the can seemed to be very shy when I caught up to them at the next light (both maybe 18, 140 lbs soaking wet...I'm 6' 235 and look very much like a cop).

    Oh well. Some people are just jerks, but life goes on.

    Loaded paintball guns fit quite nicely on a top tube or the handlebars.

    Worst I get are the moron cars who sit and beep their horns until you look back and acknowledge them. They get the finger, and if their window is open, a quick talk about "Don't honk at the bikers!"

    Comptiger5000, go read BikeSnobNYC. He's pretty sure that horns are magical buttons that can change reality.

    Where is the respect nowadays. I couldn't have imagined disrespecting an adult when I was a kid.

    Here in Florida however, there are punks that are brave when they sit in a car. My cop buddy and I were driving in my car and at the light just as it turn green the punk throws a McD's cup of soda out of the sunroof just as things start moving. So we followed them for about 2 miles until the next light, they were running their mouths, unbelievable the language that came out of them. When we finally stopped my buddy gets out of the car, flashes his badge and they turned as white as a piece of paper. He got them out of the car with my gun in his hand, called one of his buddies in a Sheriffs car, and had them sitting in handcuffs for about 15 minutes on the curb while a police dog was going through their car.

    They weren't going to hold those kids anyways (unless they found something), but I bet you that scare shut their mouths up for good (i hope). After I washed my car we had a good chuckle and a beer. We should have called their parents just to add insult to injury.

    You would have just gotten accused of harrassing minors and sued.

    The last weekend my roommate and I were biking home and he was hit by an egg and I regularly get the drive by and a shout. I avoid reacting, but I do try and keep pace the best I can so I can talk about it with them at the next light, or better yet, if they pull into their house.

    But really, biking is such a blissful experience that I can't complain about the few times I've had crap thrown at me.

    Do we assume your car got hit with the drink, then? Or you just happened to need a car wash?

    I got "coined" the other night. Didn't stop to see how much I was worth.
    Where am I? And how the hell did I get here?

    i got bottled a while ago, gave them a wave towards the side of the road. they came around the block, and i got a rock (thankfully that missed). then after some arm motions they stopped and some guy got out of the car. i came up and he was yelling about a fight till hsi friends told him to get back in the car.
    I think one of them saw my little buck strapped to the top tube
    id never use it, but it makes an excellent bluff.

    If their window is open spray them with warm sticky gatorade.

    Good job! Water in the driver's face is a good method!

    HAHA! That's my method too, except I usually only have water. And I only do that when I am really harassed. And actually I've only done this twice (water in the face, that is), with the last time being the most eventful.

    You can't get into conversations/arguments with these people. And that is never my intention anyway, so if they roll down the window and start going on about how bikes should be on the sidewalk, I just squirt them in the face with some water and ride off. If it gets there clothes all wet, even better.

    Even if they don't have their window up, the least you could do is squirt some water on there windshield. I've done this a few times. It's very passive agressive, and boy does it seem to get the blood pressure up. Come on! It's just a little water! But it is pretty funny to see how the driver overreacts.

    You're serious? How does that joke go, "...brought a knife to a gun fight." You could have been beaten, shot, who knows. Lots of martial arts types and ex-military can de-knife you in a single move. Good luck, hope you never have to find out how well your bluff really works

    Did one of them ever "overreact" by pulling a gun? Or trying to run you over? Jump out of the car and come at you with a baseball bat? Google "road rage" for a daily update...Good luck
