This Is a simple copy paste from the rant I posted from "I'm going for a ride,..." but did this happen to you yesterday?
I'd like to give a shout out to the brain-dead flag girls at the construction site for stopping bikes and telling them "we took down your plate #'s and we're calling it in to the police. We saw YOU guys speed past here a 1/2 hour ago......" My retort: "But we just came from Squamish..." In her infinite wisedom, she replies (I love this one) "there were three guys on bikes exactly like these..." As she's explaining this her co-worker stops another group of three riders..
Now I'm all for slowing down at constuction sites, and I always will, but I don't think they'd do the same thing to every hot car that came through that site. Then again, how much training can be involved in holding a sign? (uh-oh, here come the responses from guy with friends that are flag guys!) Maybe it's the sheer boredom that got punctuated by the excitement of actually doing something, like stopping guys how look like they're having fun?
I dunno, but it pissed me off. Mostly because there was no talking to them about it, no admission that they could possibly be wrong. What do you think?
