Cyclemania

One thing I truly dislike about Germany is the attitude of cyclists, who think they’re immune from traffic regulations and the laws of physics. Here’s a tip for fathers out with their sons on their bikes: If you allow your son to illegally ride on the part of the road reserved for pedestrians instead of the part reserved for cyclists, and he comes belting around the corner and nearly knocks me over because, oddly enough, neither of us is equipped with x-ray vision, you are legally responsible for everything that happens to him or to me.

If I let you off with a funny look and you decide to pick an argument with me and call me a moron (obviously, I must be a moron if I can’t see round corners without a mirror), I reserve the right to harbour misgivings about your parenting skills.

(Oh, and clearing off all of a sudden just because I argue back and start winning the argument just makes me think you’re a bully and a coward.)
