Point: Hey ASSHOLE! Yeah you, you fuckin prick. What, are too good? Are you somehow better than me? I'm riding along and acknowledge your presence as a fellow human being enjoying a bicycle ride with a simple wave. And you can't even show me the common courtesy of a wave in return? What the fuck? Is my bike not cool enough? I don't have on the right sponsors clothing? Am I wearing the wrong brand of sunglasses? Did I dare not shave my legs today? Are you too busy keeping glued to your PowerTap? What is your problem? Its a simple wave. Don't want to take your hands off the bar? Fine, give me a nod. I'm respecting you as someone that clearly has something in common with me. I'm just looking for mutual respect. Karma baby, karma.
Counterpoint: Oh, I get it. Because I happen to be riding a bike, I have to somehow be involuntarily indoctrinated into your little club? I drive a car too, do I to wave at all other motorists? Wave all you like, but I might not be in the mood. I don't even know who the hell you are! Don't sign me up for something I didn't ask for and don't get all pissy just because I may not be a cheery happy go lucky little pussy who has to have a stupid bond just because we share the same form of transportation. Fuck that shit.
