Man today sucked ass.
I was on my way to work from UBC along Point grey road. At one of the intersections I there was a van making a left with 2 cars stuck behind it. I switched into the right outer lane and proceeded towards the intersection. As I neared it I slowed down because I couldn't see around the van and as I entered the intersection a guy in a convertable decides to turn left in front of me and sees me at last second and stops right in fron of me! F%ck!!..I dumped the bike to avoid a T-bone but I ended up slamming into him while the bike shot off to my right. I got up and the guy in his car and his friend are freakin out. They asked if I was ok and I thought I was..but I realized I broke something because my foot was numb and I fell down. All I cared about was that damn bike. Why?..because it was my wife's Smokin' Joe. Well I saved the Joe..sort of and saved me a Superman over the car but man did that scare the shit out of me.
Now the stupid part...I wasn' wearing my gear..no boots, no gloves no jacket. I thought "No big ride just a casual cruise to work"Say all you want about gear and how its a personal choice but the end result is I didn't wear any gear and I got hurt. I broke my toe, and 2 bones in my foot plus road rash on my knee and arm. Wearing my boots would have protected my feet.
So after all that crazy shit I get to spend 4 hours in the hospital Oh yeah I was in tons of pain and I passed out on the ride there and when I got there the nurse barely even noticed I was in agaony. I asked for some painkillers and immediate assistance but she said NO! I got really pissed and when she found out what happened she was a little more accomodating. Nice thing was the guy that cut me off felt really bad and took me to the hospital and waited till Katie came with some aspirin
Well now I have a big splinted watermelon for a foot and I get to miss school tomorrow to sit on my ass. So...if you're up for some PS2 come and stop by at UBC
