    Finally had to hang this outside my cube-img00232-20120718-10171-jpg

    All day, every day. Come October I'll need a "Why yes, it was a bit cold this morning' one.

    Re: Finally had to hang this outside my cube

    last week, i used a line i got from this forum

    my boss: did you ride your bike today? (while looking at my helmet and jacket on the spare desk)
    me: i just like wearing my helmet

    he laughs and quickly figures what a dumb question he just asked.

    Re: Finally had to hang this outside my cube

    I used the line the other day, "I just got used to wearing the helmet on the bus when I was younger and it stuck. Glad to see you broke the habit."

    Then just Monday while we had a brief shower,
    coworker: you rode your bike, and it's raining, is that alright
    me: it happens
    cw: well, what do you do
    me: get wet
    cw: smart ass
    me: it happens

    Nice cube, shitty chair. We're now one of those zero privacy low-rise cube outfits. Although they did upgrade our chairs.

    What's the small text on the first one?

    Re: Finally had to hang this outside my cube

    I know some people are just trying to start conversation when they say silly smalltalk things like "oh, did you ride today?", but come on! At least ask a real question. Most riders are probably happy to explain stuff beyond the obvious.

    If you get bored of your new signs, can I suggest the next set just be pictures of road-rash? No words. Should make the point pretty clear.

    then they would ask " is that you" "did you get it from riding your motorcycle"

    I met a lot of Germans who think Americans are obsessed with the weather, because they would often start the conversation with "Nice day, isn't it?"

    Then I was in East Berlin in front of the Soviet Embassy. A little old lady walked up to me and said in German, "Lovely day, isn't it, Lieutenant?" It was very overcast with low clouds and threatening rain. I replied "Yes, as long as it doesn't rain." And she replied "Oh, Lieutenant, as long as you are here, it will not rain."

    It took me an hour to realize that she was not talking about the weather....

    That's for my gear & guests....though my actual chair isn't much better. Swivels at least.

    No IDEA how you got that. But you're right. Blackberry plus coffee hands = sketchy picture.

    When I worked in Germany at VW I went into work one day as it was pouring rain and I was soaked from walking from the bus and said to my coworkers "Schoenes wetter, nee?" (nice out huh?) and they looked at me and said "nein, es regnet..scheiss wetter" (no its raining, shitty weather)...the germans dont get sarcasm...also, they dont get small talk in general with strangers, I took an entire class on that.

    I've ridden to work every day almostt an entire year now, in every sort of weather and temperature as long as it was 20 degrees, except if there was ice on the ground, and yet on days like today everyone has to ask "ride in today?".

    Anyone ever print up a shirt "Yes, I rode in today."?

    Someone should drive to work in full gear just to be able to answer "No, actually I drove."

    All day, every day. Come October I'll need a "Why yes, it was a bit cold this morning' one.
    Lol, I get this every day. Here are some of my answers:

    "Did you get wet on the way in?"

    "Oh not too bad. I only have a 10 min commute ya know."

    "Boy cold ride in today?"

    "Oh not too bad. I only have a 10 min commute ya know."

    You'd think they know by now I have a 10 min commute and that hot, cold, wet weather obviously doesn't affect me.
