Next time, I will just run him over!
Since it is the weekend and we don't have a Filter Error, I need to share a story.
A little back story first, I live in a relatively small town, about 60,000. We have limited forms of public transportation, so some of the people who live here, and don't own cars have to figure out other means to get around town. One of the more popular means is bicycles. In an effort to alleviate traffic congestion and keep bikers safe, we have bike lanes on just about every major road. But my problem isn't 90% of the bikers, it is the 10% that don't follow the traffic laws. They ride the wrong way on one way streets, don't stop at stop lights or red lights, and most importantly don't use the designated bike lane, when provided.
So, now for the real reason for this poll. After work today, I was headed south in the left lane on one of our one way streets. On this particular road the bike lane is on the right hand side of the road. Right in front of me is this douche riding in the middle of the road, slowing down traffic. I whip around said tool and yell out my window "Use the bike lane A$$hole." He proceeds to peddle as fast as he can, and pulls up beside me, at a red light, and ask me what I said. I happily repeated my first statement and added "The city provides a bike lane for you, and requires you to use them. Just cause you are on a f**king bike doesn't mean that you don't have to follow traffic laws."
Just as I get home, my phone rings and I see that it is my direct supervisor. I wonder why he is calling me, I figured that I forgot to do something before I left work. When I answer, my boss ask me to return to work, cause he needs to speak to me. So, I drive back to work, where I sit down with my supervisor and one of the front of the house managers(FOH). They tell me that Douche McBikerider called and claimed that I accosted him. They ask me if it happened on property, I tell them what happened. They both laugh and lecture me that even though it isn't a big deal, I need to be more conscientious that I am representing the company at all times and need to be more careful about how I handle situations like this. The FOH ask me if I had it to do over again, how would I handle it differently? I respond with, "Next time, I will just run his f**king a$$ over."
So, have you ever had something happen outside of work, that has gotten you in trouble at work?
