I swear that, with the heat wave these days I sometimes want to scream: I WILL MAKE YOU EAT YOUR FUCKING SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT!! instead I mostly give these people the side eye.
Drivers suck, natch. But people on foot and on bikes have SUCH a sense of entitlement; it kills me. They are defiant in their entitlement. “Go ahead; hit me,” say their smirking faces. Fuck them!
I live in Amsterdam, I swear they invented cyclists’ sense of entitlement over here. And don’t get me started on tourists who never rode a bike in a city environment but suddenly, because they are spending a weekend in AMS they rent a bike and they fancy themselves “eco warriors”.
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
