Dealing with Road Users

Postby Silly Old Hector » Sat Dec 15, 2012 11:31 am

Dear all,

I've been reading, with interest, many of the threads on the varying degrees of road incidents and road rage, highlighted by the recent BBC "War on the Roads" programme.

I've had my (small) share of these (with inappropriate reactions), but I offer an alternative way to handle these situations.

If you get a chance to read "The Chimp Paradox" (available from all good book shops etc.), it might give a different perspective on our initial reactions. Check out the reviews on Amazon (other shops are available !).

It's nothing particularly new, just another chance to put our daily lives into perspective.

On the lead-up to Xmas, I'm planning to mellow-out :oops:

All the gear, but no idea...

Yes, I decided it was time to chill the fcuk out after an incident where a car pulled out in front of me and I was so incensed that I would have happily jumped from my bike to the roof of his car, shat on it, then chewed off the drivers face and then done nasty things to his passengers. I am some what more chilled now, haven't shat on someone's roof for at least a month.....

I always find they've driven off before I get the damn bibtights off and am able to chuck anything at them...

How are you guys managing it?

A doggy bag wrapped to the bars works well for staring turd rockets.
