It's getting darker and colder in the mornings on my way to work. The weather has so beautiful that I've riding the bike almost everyday. It never fails, at least once on my way to work, I wind up initiating evasive maneuvers to get out of the way of a burning cigarette.
In the darker mornings, they're easy to see with the shower of orange sparks flying about. It really irks me when I'm wearing my Cordura, since it's not exactly flame retardant.
So, again, this morning I'm minding my own business on the way in and BOOM! There goes another, headed right at my bouncing around. I'm just waiting for it to come up and bounce in my lap.
Notice to smokers: Use your @#$%@'in ASH TRAY. Not only are you an inconsiderate jerk by tossing them on the ground, but you represent a safety hazard to me when I ride. It's dangerous enough for me already, I don't need the risk of catching fire to worry about also.
