It doesn’t bother me when people on motorcycles sneak up into the pole position at traffic lights: they usually accelerate quickly and are gone.
I’d like to do the same to them just once.
I’m a rebellious thinker like that sometimes.
note: if I know there will be some cyclist, mopedalist, or pizza delivery scooter driver trying to muscle in on my pole position with visions of being a Hell’s Angels, I usually try to get as close to the curb as possible.
double note: Is that motorcycle move taught at driving school? … or is it just an unwritten rule of the road? … or something else?
triple note: I bet people with really fast cars get pissed off with motorcyclists for doing this. … I wouldn’t know … I’m just a better.
quadruple note: if a motorcyclist cut in front of me in a movie theatre line up, I probably wouldn’t say anything … because obvious they are a weirdo.
quintuple note: “pole position” … because there is a pole somewhere … I thought there was a “poll” about the fastest being positioned at the front.
sextuple note: I’ve been in the “pole position” at the barbershop on many occasions!
notes to myself #51
You grow out of a lot of things, but you grow in to a lot of things at the same time … so it’s no big deal really.
