I hate people some times

GOD people can be real Asshats.

I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things for supper and when I get back to the bike some twit had slammed a shopping cart into the saddlebag. Scratched the lower panel up. I see that this part can be had north of the boarder in CN for around $30.00 and it's a screwdriver job to replace. Now if I can get it in the States is another matter. BUT it really POs me that I have to do so, people just don't care about anyone or thing but theirs.

What really fries me is I park the bike way the heck out by the curb in a corner all by itself. So HOW they did this I don't know.

Or was that look THEN leap?

One of my favorite sayings is (and don't take this too seriously):

"If it wasn't for people, the World would be a better place."

The miscreant was probably texting while grocery carting and completely oblivious to his/her surroundings - the curb or your motorcycle or anything else that wasn't on that tiny screen. In too many instances it's genuinely pathetic to behold.

I know it's bloody annoying but think of it this way they didn't knock the bike over.

Yea I know it's going to happen but I learned along time ago that in a lot of peoples minds a motorcycle doesn't count as a real thing...Just a toy. When cop was telling a co-worker that his ST1100 had been flattened in the parking lot at lunch the driver who ran it over had said "It's just a F******g Motorcycle". Never mind that Greg had to work to earn the money to buy it.

Yea I have a problem with this. If they'd waited I wouldn't be so upset. After all I check at the part is under $30.00 If I can get it from Givi USA

Probably some jealous punk who has nothing more than what his EBT card will buy.

People that are too lazy to walk their cart to the cart corral really grind my gears. I will put away several carts and chase down rogue wind powered carts to hopefully save someone from unnecessary damage. I have a couple severe parking lot dents on my pickup, but they were probably from doors, another aggravating people issue.
