We're an ungrateful bunch of people ya know

This goes out to all the young diva chicks and men in suits who assume that because I'm holding the door, they're entitled to flow through without so much as an acknowledgment, as if I consider it an honour to be their gofer or something. Ungracious people, hmph.

This isn't a new thing, but I'm seeing it a bit more nowadays on the street, that's the obscuring of licence plates on motorbikes. Either the kryptonite lock or another helmet is strategically placed so it covers up the licence plate, which is illegal of course. You only see it on certain bikes (read: Yamaha V50/80) usually ridden by young fellas. Which means the bike's either unregistered or stolen. No way to read the plate, no way to tell the status.

Police have begun some form of blitz to nail down traffic offenders, but of course they won't be catching the V50 hounds, because they're not going to be knifing through rush-hour traffic, obviously. Pity that Government's still done absolutely zero in the road traffic department this year. Sponsoring a public awareness campaign doesn't cut it.

Oh so true. This is something about Bermuda that has BUGGED me for a while. As a Torontonian, we hold doors for people especially for people behind us, as we're making our way through. It's just common courtesy, that I guess many in Bermuda lack or have forgotten about. I bet I held the door for you at one time or the other! ;o)
