Oh boy - can of worms there, and me with half a load on...this oughta be fun, ha.
Lessee, after being cut off by one dickhead payin more attention to his cell phone than me, I planted my ped in front of his at the next stoplight, and physically TOOK his cellphone from him, told him he could retrieve it from the District Police Dept, where I would (and did) drop it off later that day.
The dude behind me at a red light blasting his horn cause he wanted to make a left, or rather, wanted me to make an unsafe one, who then had the temerity to try to run me over when I got off the 'ped to debate him....it cost him one headlight, some paint, the windshield, and a nasty crack in the rear window as well.
(I have mentioned that I carry a length of chain ? I am NOT kidding.)
Back when I still carried my splatmaster .68 (An old, old paintball gun, for thems that don't remember those days) I had it in a chopped holster, and loaded with screaming dayglo neon pink paintballs for jerks like Mr. Honda there...it's hard to be macho with 3-4 of THOSE on yer paintjob, but it's hard to re-cock the damn thing while riding..those new self-contained semi-autos are a thought, tho.
There was a local pack of street punks in Baltimore moved onto our street and started bashing up cars with baseball bats, mostly cause the cops wouldn't touch em since they were minors - and they acted with more or less impunity, till they decided to throw a bottle at me, and out came the chain - that came to be an ongoing thing, to and from work, most nights....till thier glorious lil leader DID get arrested - and of all things came back to apologize.
FYI - BCPD ? Fuck You....only in Baltimore could someone be dragging your 'ped out of your yard, and YOU nearly go to jail for stopping them.
Imagine that, someone halfway out of yer yard with your prize (and only !) set of wheels that gets you to work, you stop em and run em off - and nearly go to prison for it !
But yeah....you mess with my ped, especially if I am on it - and I'll come for you, I never forget, never forgive, and respond in eminently violent fashion, it discourages recidivism.
I've no patience for this game.
I WILL cross four lanes of traffic straight at ya if you throw a bottle at me, I WILL chase you home, and run my front wheel up your steps as you cry for mommy to call the police....damn Curtis Bay punks, anyhow.
Little hint, if the guy on the 'ped you're about to hassle has his bloodtype painted above the forward brim of his helmet, don't do it...you WILL regret it.
Many others have.
