Sitting down in a local coffee shop and trying to enjoy s hot cop of coffee can sometimes be a challenge after all, its a public place and anybody’s welcome who’s interested in purchasing something to drink.
I for one was surrounded one day by a group of bikers, not the leather vested and tattooed type the kind that rides the very expensive two wheeled chain driven, human powered and very expensive made bicycle that when I was a kid I called my Schwinn.
They usually show up on the weekend all around the same time and then congregate and discuss their upcoming ride and the challenges it will present to them.
No I don’t mind this as I’ve gotten used to them and the clicking of their special shoes and very aerodynamic safety helmets.
Unless….I’m trying to post to my blog as I was trying to do this particular morning. One of the riders even seemed to take a fancy to my tablet computer I use as my daily driver.
I finally decided I had enough and pulled out my noise cancelling in ears, a must for anyone trying to do any kind of work in a regularly noisy area.
After turning on my favorite Bose headphones and moving a few seats over and away form the group they seemed to take notice of me and my annoyance to their presence and all of the them got up and departed to begin their ride.
Now in reality, I’m here quite a bit and I cross paths with these weekend Tour de France types all the time, they recognize me and I of course know them as well.
It’s because of this that I believe they decided to show me a little courtesy and leave me in peace, and I appreciate it.
Blogging this particular morning was something of a challenge for me. I was just sitting and trying to decide what to write when this group of individuals gave me something to blog about.
I’ll probably just sit here the next time and let them talk away until they’re ready to go.
