A biker overtook me on a double white line yesterday afternoon, in the mountains, on a twisty road and stuffed in betwixt me and the snail holding me up. I pulled back and flashed briefly to say it was ok because I knew he had to pull in quickly or die (am not aggressive - I dislike body parts on roads and they delay one's journey). I was also aware that he had probably caught up with me and said snail unexpectedly quickly and had lots of speed to lose.
He turned round and GAVE ME THE BIRD! I assumed he thought I was angerflashing (that would have meant a longer flash in my world, and perchance even a long BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP). Not the case. I was rather vexed then, though passengerman said he thought he'd waved acknowledgement. I remained unsure.
After a few minutes, the bikerman needed to turn off to the right and as he slowed to a near stop, he turned right around and actually did a fully-formed wave! He HAD been friendly and grateful! Yay! I like a live biker. Check out my paragraphing.
*Rights. No apostrophe (no possession; no missing letter but it's ok). No. They were unbroken white lines between carriageways. Very illegal. Blind bend, death-inducing, etc. So ner.
Want*. WHAT?! A carriageway is the lane of a road, man. Put that hood down and look properly. We drive on the left, as do the people driving towards us - on their left. Thus, two carriageways. Unbroken white lines betwixt them. I was on said road... Driving test, anyone? xxx
Your hood. I see it in your pic. And no, cos bigamy.
