I repent
« on: June 25, 2007, 10:13:41 am »
On Saturday in the Wingatepark (Pretoria) area I gave a lady the middle finger after we nearly collided.  Her husband responded by giving me a sticky letter attached to my bike a half hour later.

Well the truth will set me free. It was my mistake. My (damn) indicator was turned on to make her think I was going to turn left and she just crossed my way - thinking that I was going to turn.

So, who ever it was I am sorry, its not very good carma to give a lady the middle finger and for the image of my bike.

Sorry!!

 ;) ;) ;) ;)

hey man

it all starts with the apology - good for you to at least owning up to a mistake -.Ttrust me, your 'now good' karma has already made it back to that lady -for some reason she's feeling good about something and she has no idea what it is.

great stuff
I love my bike..................

A wise man once said to keep your words soft and sweet, in case you have to eat them.

Another wise man also said to keep your actions polite when riding a bike, 'cause that person might have to help you get up 'round the next corner.

To become wise, those guys did just the opposite, I bet.

Consider yourself just a little bit wiser today, Ballies.
Live and let live.

Pray tell, what did the note say? Was it at least done in good taste? ;D ;D
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

You are hereby officially Excused.

After all you were in the Widgat Area

Fortunately you were not riding in the  Fairy Men    area,  G*d knows what could have happened then. 


 ;D ;D ;D

PS:  What did the letter say ?

jeez, deep, man, deep O0 to add: it takes a great man to admit when he is wrong, and an even greater man to shut up when he knows he is right ;)

Basically the letter pointed out that I was the wrong party (in good taste) and then the threat from the husband
 -"Jy sal spyt raak as jy weer dit vir my vrou wys!!"

Runner asked "Was sy in 'n oranje kar"
No,She was driving a Silver A4.


...and thanks for the positive response, it makes me feel much better since I took my wifes car keys and cellphone by accident this morning!! She's going to m*&r me tonight!!

Ooohhh fark! No amount of good "karma" can save you now!
It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary MC
