To the idiot guy on the bike who nearly ran me down during my lunch hour, here are the 3 traffic laws, off the top of my head, that you broke:

  1. Going the wrong way on a one-way street.
  2. Going against the light.
  3. Not yielding to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

Don't do it again.

ATTENTION, BLOGOSPHERE: The contraction "you're" is to be used in place of "you are." The possessive "your" is to be used, well, when the possessive is intended. If you don't know the difference, possessive means, owning something, even if immaterial. Ie. Your use of your when you are is required really irritates me. "You are" uses a verb, "are," which is a conjugated form of the "to be" verb. Thus, "you're" should be followed by what that person is, as in I am; you are; he, she, or it is." Which brings us to....

When you've mastered the difference between your and you are, you might want to check on the difference between the contraction it's and the possessive its.

Yes, it's been that kind of day, week, month, year, life, choose one; why do you ask?
