    Um, most bird owners I'm aware of put their birds in a pet carrier or they have a small bird cage specifically for traveling to take them to the vet.

    Bizarre, for sure.

    And being in a rush for something like that is still no excuse to drive dangerously.

    So cyclists rate below parrots? If you can't move over a tad with no oncoming traffic you are too distracted to drive safely. I think the cyclist did a good job of calling him on it yet not being nasty so the driver could blame the cyclist.

    I'd ask the driver where he forgot his eye patch?

    Such an odd story, with an equally odd excuse for driving like a moron.

    Personally, I can't imagine getting through that conversation without a Monty Python quote.

    Yeah same here. I resisted before. Not now. Not quite dead, mate? Bit you so hasn't bit the dust? Not yet singing in the choir eternal? Dying to get to the vet? Auditioning for a Monty Python sketch?
