A Saturday Night's Rant

Something that always bugs me to no end is when drivers parked on the side of the road keep their driver's side door swung in the fully open position while they're busy powdering their noses or whatever, the drivers are not oblivious, nor wearing a string bikini, they're fully conscious of the situation. Cars are passing on the driver side and it would make more sense if they did their navel gazing instead on the passenger side of the car next to the sidewalk which is obviously a whole lot safer instead of posing as an unnecessary distraction to other vehicles if not a potential traffic hazard I double dare you to side swipe me which would indeed alter their private universe. Most roads are designed to leave enough room within the width of a lane and still provide a buffer zone for parked cars on the same side of the road. In some instances, there's enough left-over room to strip off a bicycle lane. Tonight, same door-wide-open scenario, on a side street, in Waikiki, the driver is sitted in his car tying his shoe laces with his feet sticking out at a 90° angle to the street.

RONW! Come on, it's NaBloPoMo! Where's today's post?

Rowena- I had new parts for my bike to install. Plus, I don't do NaBloPoMo (posting everyday of the month). People who write NaBloPoMo are nuts. A real challenge would be posting every day of the year, alrighty then. LOL.
