Took a ride home from work today on MAX. Thanks to Ken for driving me to the the stop. (Ken and I are trying to patch up our shattered relationship over this blog). Anywho..... I am sitting in the priority seating area. When we come to the Beaver Creek stop and a bicyclist comes in. He hooks up his bike then taps me on the shoulder and tells me I need to move for him because it is priority seating. Seeing this guy is in his mid 30s and is in reasonably heathly shape (riding his bike and all) I pointed to the sign and said it is priority seating for Seniors and people with disabilities. I also told him I would be glad to move if that was the case. He got mad and told me that he was going to report this to Tri-met security. "Well" I said, "There just happens to be a tri-met security officer near the front of the car." and I pointed to him. The guy marches over there. Stands right by him then sits down without saying a word. Am I a bad guy for this? I don't think so. Here's to the dirtbags across this nation that make this country so great.
