"I'm Probably Even Slower Than Her"

This, THIS is what I get for going headphone-less.

Being privy to snide comments.

About me!!!

So that's what I got to hear today on the trail, while I was busy busting my ass—with no headphones—cuz I'm tryin' that, too, and btw? it blows—trying to break 15-min miles walking. Do you people have any idea how hard that is?!?! Give me four miles in under an hour. I double-dog dare you to try it. Triple-dog.

So anyway, I'm walking along, minding my own business, trying to catch the moms with the strollers and the old lady in front of me, and the guy on the gurney hooked up to the oxygen, when this women on roller blades slows and says to the roller-blade dude behind her, "Go around me, I'm slow. I'm probably even slower than her," with a nod in my direction.

Ha, ha, I say. Cuz I'm nice that way. What I want to say? Is, listen lady, I just had my wee-wee worked on, and I'm not allowed to run, OK? I'm not allowed to do anything but walk, but I used to be able to run, but now it's going on eight weeks of no running, but I was almost getting close to being not horrible just before I had to quit, so why don't you just take that stick out... nevermind.

Instead, I say: ha ha.

I can't wait 'til I can run cuz I am gonna seriously kick a few people's asses!

In the meantime: Have a nice day.

BIOTCH! Her, not you. Why would she compare her speed on rollerskates to a person walking, anyhow? That is just being rude to be rude. I'm thinking God would have looked the other way if you had tripped her.

You know the nice thing about rollerblades? They're easy to fall [be pushed] off of.

Those who (really) can't run ... rollerblade. WE know where that is on the pecking order.

IHateToast said...

You're far too nice. I'm sure I would have come up with a very witty reply - 5 minutes too late.

Susan said...

You'll be back to it in no time - and I am excited for you!!!

Phoenix said...

Yep. Ida had to trip her.

Or else turn around and say "Dang, you ARE slow. And fat too. Maybe you should just go home now."

That wouldve shown her.

Ooooooh sound like rumble time to me. Depending on the time of the month I would of either ignored it or confronted her. If I were with you I would of had your back though.

Rude indeed! You should have shot a Farmer's Blow at them.

WannaBe5Ker said...

Please, when your wee wee is good as new again (you poor thing, btw!!!), please go back to that trail, find that girl, and SMOKE the crap out of her and her stinkin' bike, ok?

Beth said...

No tunes? WOW, my body refuses to get off of the couch unless my ears are properly "budded". Good for you for holding your tongue - I would have flipped her off and likely said something completely inappropriate.

Oh how rude!! Do we need to posse up and kick some ass??? Say the word!
