I would say one of my best qualities is how well I am able to paint the nails on my right hand with my left hand..
Yesterday afternoon Eric and I were walking the dogs on the leisure trail that goes around our neighborhood. We were walking on the right side, as normal people do. Up ahead we spotted someone on a bike coming towards us—she was on the left side of the trail, so on the same side as us (aka the wrong side).
She then yells at us asking us to please move to the other side of the trail. Eric, being much nicer than I would have been, says “Uh, OK I guess?” and we move over. As she gets closer, we notice she has a dog tethered to her bike. (Spoiler alert: bad idea.)
As she’s approaching us, she says, “Thank you, I just don’t want him [her dog] going crazy”… at which point her dog DID start to go crazy—barking and jumping around towards our dogs. Obviously the dog’s reaction causes the bike to topple and her to fall over—all in a very slow-mo type of way.
I was all like:
After I got done rolling my eyes I said to her, “That doesn’t seem like a very good idea.” and kept on walking.
I mean… REALLY?!
I’d like to add she wasn’t hurt, just an idiot. Dog owners around me are really proving to be a special breed. Pun intended.
