Something that’s cracking me up today is my coworkers’ apparent inability to understand that I like biking to work. Since I started my new position, several folks have approached me to say that if I ever need a ride, all I need to do is call them since they drive that way anyway, etc. etc., and there’s much fretting over the fact that I sometimes bike in the cold or the rain. I try to be gracious about the offers because I know they mean well, but really?!
I mean, sure, some mornings I grumble a little bit as I strap my helmet on, but I do have my own car that I can drive to work if and when things get too hairy. I just refuse to buy an expensive parking pass for campus, so I have to park in the back 40 and walk ten minutes across campus if I drive–which I consider a good thing! Either way, I’m getting at least a little bit of exercise, and not being able to park the car at my building’s back door means I’m more inclined to bike most mornings.
In any case, they’re just being nice so I can’t fault them for that, but it’s still funny. Oh no, poor Mia, she has to take a fifteen-minute bike ride every morning and afternoon through easy residential streets to get to work! And she’s planning on getting herself a nice new bike for Christmas, so the ride will be even easier!
Truly, I am to be pitied.
