Then, as I was riding the gravel road, there was a dude walking 3 dogs off leash. That's fine too, but the freaking dog is in my lane and not moving. I had to stop and unclip so I wouldn't run over the dog. The dude acted like that was normal, saying" How ya doin'?"
I started wondering what is up with people? Simple gestures to let people around you know that you care. A simple apology for an inconvenience. Am I entitled? Can I not expect common courtesy?
I wonder how many times I get in the way and am oblivious. If it happens, I do what I can to make it right.
Common courtesy. We are not in this world alone, we are not entitled. We have to share, we have to move over to pass, we really need to start using our turn signals. We need to take the time to stop for 30 seconds to let someone back out of their driveway. What happened to the days of helping the old lady across the street?
And so went my ride. Awesome weather, fun route, overpowered by this crap.
Today, I am looking for the good in people. I'm attempting to get past the crap and focus on the good.
Bring it on!
