What I got called today

18 October 2006, 7:22 pm

“Freshman [f-ing] faggot!”

I would have given good odds against anyone calling me a “freshman” ever again, and it pretty much made my day.

Er, I mean

“Come back here and say that to my face, you sophomore!”

    What’s the context? Oh, I see it’s tagged to bike safety. So this was from a motorist? That’s pretty great.

    I gather Amy’s got you workin’ that youthful glow again…

    This is how I feel when I get carded, except then I think sometimes the intent is to be especially polite or to flatter me–not to insult me. I’ll have to store that one in my bag of fun-pseudo-insults (the freshman part, that is).

    Other potential pseudo-insults for Doug that may or may not actually apply:

    Velocepedist!
    Literate ass!
    Chemical engineer!
    American tool!
    Library-cardholding nitwit!
    Thumbsucker!

    Actually, it was from a bicyclist who took issue with my expression of displeasure at his cycling protocol.

    My most recent verbal exchange with a motorist went like this:

    If you want to be treated like a vehicle, you need to act like a vehicle!
    I do!
    Well, all right, then!

    Ez, at first I thought you wrote “American Idol!” I like that one, myself.

    That most recent verbal exchange was with a Boston driver? Sounds way too civil…

    I was pleasantly surprised by that as well. i think the first thing i said was, “You need to watch where you’re going, sir.” Perhaps that little honorific helped things get off on the right off.

    Me, too.
