It’s all pretty quiet in the trenches of life so here’s some ravings…
1: Adults cycling on the footpath
Ok, if it’s shared access, that’s fair enough, no issues there. But where it isn’t and you belt along the pedestrian precinct or ordinary path, then you should be prosecuted. It’s dangerous for those on two feet, especially when the cyclist has all the protective gear on. It’s the pedestrian who needs protecting! If you don’t want to ride on the road or cycle path, THEN DON’T GET A BIKE!
2: People insisting on sharing music (no headphones!)
I have no objection to people playing whatever music they like through their headphones/earphones while traveling. However I can’t stand those people who still play their music FOR THE WHOLE BUS TO HEAR! It may be good music, but does that mean I have to hear it, even when I don’t want to?
Now, I was always told that there was no excuse to drop litter at anytime, and this was the days before widespread litter bins. You bagged it up and took it home if there was no nearby bin. Today, the attitude with some people says that it doesn’t matter as there are people to clear it up. The buses can be as bad with people using them as a mobile cafe, and then just dropping the litter where they sit. What impression does it give to strangers in town??
I might expand on this in the future…
