A selection of words from my vast vocabulary, including the ubiquitous "the," the always versatile "and," and the more obscure "incontrovertible," arranged in frequently meaningful, sometimes profound, yet often pedestrian sentences and statements, designed with one goal in mind-- that being, to communicate; keeping in mind the oft-used bromide, "Never use two words when one will do the same job as two or more words would have done, unless you just want to take up space and sound important," which is, I must concede, too often a secret objective of mine indeed. And yet, now, the secret is out.

I'm just doing my job...

So I'm making a delivery today-- for this one I have to stop on 49th Avenue close to PCC Sylvania and partially block the lane; I suppose my truck is there for maybe 35 seconds-- and while I'm making the delivery some Militant Bicyclist-ette, rides by and yells, "It says NO PARKING... blah blah..." (the rest is unintelligible because she's continuing on her less-than-merry way).

I have two things to say in response to this obvious statement by this unhappy rider:

1) I had my four-way flashers on, honey. If they're on, you have to GO AROUND. It's not that difficult to do. The drivers all do it without yelling at me. I think you can find it in your heart to do it too. I'm sorry I had to block your precious bike lane, but I was just doing my job.

B) Can't we all just get along?

This Militant Bicyclist-ette was obviously not a happy person; probably just looking for any mean motorist who might get in her way so she could yell at them. Breathe deep, honey. It'll be okay. Really.
