Unfortunately I had to drive to work today. As I drove thru my route, I pictured myself riding the KHS Urban X passing all the cars that were stuck in traffic. Once I got on the freeway, I really missed my bike. Stupid traffic was going 5 mph.
But the thing that pisses me off the most its my office’s stupid politics. There seems to be 1 or more (not sure) disgruntled employees that think that bike commuters get preferential treatment. I was approached by my supervisor and he told me that I should arrive earlier when I ride my bike since the 10 minutes that I take to freshen up and the 5 minutes that I take to get ready to go home were interfering with my work. Here’s the kicker, about 45% of my co-workers arrive later than I do and they drive!! What is the first thing that some of them do when they get to work? Go get their coffee or put make up on, WTF!!!
Although my supervisor agreed with me that I was being singled out because I ride a bike, there was nothing he could do. So since I need to leave work 1/2 hour early today, its OK because I’m driving my truck and not riding my bike. So who is really getting preferential treatment here???
