dood ona bike...

i was harrassed on the way to work today.

i'm walking up 4th plain, minding my own business. i am enjoying the sunshine, beautiful weather, and the wind in my eyes*. i'm humming "both belong" by The Grays under my breath.

suddenly, an older black guy on a bike, rides past me in the street and flips me off.

i wasn't sure i was seeing what i was seeing at first, but his hand stayed there, and he looked right at me, to make sure that i had seen him flip me off. he then pulls into the Shell parking lot ahead of me, rides his bike in circles and into the street, giving me the finger the entire time and glaring at me.

i begin to walk slower, and debate going into the shell station.

he then crosses the street where i will be heading, gets off his bike as i walk up to the curb, and starts grabbing his crotch and biting his lip while glaring at me, his finger held up and towards me in all its glory. he keeps looking at the light as if he's waiting for it to change so that he can come back across towards me.

i keep looking at the entrance of the Shell station and back to him.

as cars turn in front of him, he laughs heartily at them and gestures in my direction, to somehow share his mirth as to what he's doing to me.

he suddenly gets on his bike and pedals across the street in the other direction, and down a side road, doing circles around moving cars, causing them to stop and honk. he flips them off and continues down the road.

i was two minutes late to work. i got in trouble. i told them where to stick it.

*obscure MST reference. a cookie to who can name it. and it's not that hard.

One time in Victoria a random crazy woman looked into my eyes and told me I was a fucking bitch. I cried for the rest of the day.
When people flip me off, I tend to smile and wave or give them a thumbs up. It really throws them off.

Scary! It's nice to see that we are saving tax money by letting people like them out. I try to avoid eye contact with people like that.

The MST reference would be "Pod People"

Ack! You would think you were in a real city with the amount of weirdos in the 'Couve. I get odd ones coming into the church I work at wanting money and sandwiches.

In Portland the drivers would have hit the guy...

Izzard
You seem cool. I like how you seem to really show some aspects of your personality throught your writing. I'm still working on that. It's really just a matter of veing bored and drinking coffee. I assume that "cake or death" is reffering to Eddie Izzard. "tea and cake or death" "Church of England". He's awesome. Anyway, I'm new on lj so I still need to update my bio to maybe give people a shallow idea of what I'm in to or whatever. Hopefully I'll start writing things that may entertain people too. Otherwise I might just enjoy being entertained. I'm rambling so I should probably sleep. Uhhhh...hope to talk to you sometime maybe......Ba bye......

What in the hell, save for totally unmedicated psychosis, makes people be randomly mean like that? I'm glad he didn't try to hurt you physically.

Jesus. Stuff like this makes me all bitter and pissy and sad. But I'm glad you're okay. You probably should have called the cops when you got to work, if not to try to catch the guy, then to make your co-workers feel awful for counting you late when you had a very VALID reason.

Creepy. I'm glad you're okay.
It makes me think of being in Germany...one night I had a guy come up to me in the church yard and walk along with me, and kept asking me to get coffee with him or something. I told him my boyfriend and friends were waiting for me at home (a lie).
Another night I got off the last Strassenbahn for the night and was debating walking home, but then these creepy guys walked past me and called me sweetie, so I got a cab.
