Bike Lady

Posted on Sun, Jun 20, 2010 at 12:48 PM

This has been eating at me for a few weeks now and I need to get it off my chest:

To the lady who scolded my fiance and I as we tried to leave the Police Bike Auction - thanks for the warm Halifax welcome! We had trouble getting out of the crowded parking lot in our little pickup truck and your comment "Maybe you should have rode your bikes" was idiotic.

I have just moved to Halifax from Vancouver and came to the auction to BUY A BIKE... why else would I be there?! We drove there, hoping to pickup a used bike to repair and eventually ride - hence the truck. It's 8am on a Saturday and I'm lost in a new city, and stuck in a crowded parking lot?! You couldn't just keep your holier-than-thou mouth shut?

So thank you ever SO MUCH for the kind, warm welcome to your beautiful city! And to think I told everyone back in B.C. how friendly and warmhearted everyone in the Maritimes was... I sure hope you're just the exception. —Red truck passenger/ BC bitcher
