Ooops, I got some organic/shmorganic yuppies upset. My spouse required more rabbit food (protein cereal grains) that is only sold at an organic market. While I was out and about running errands on my Harley today, I stopped by that market to get the grains my spouse asked for. Dressed like this:
I should have known… really… what would happen, especially when I rode up to the store and observed most vehicles parked in the store’s lot were hybrids.
It was my full leather that caught attention of some folks who…
… looked me up and down, turned their nose up, and with disdain, a few said things like, “how many cows did you have to kill to make that outfit?” or “don’t you know that you really shouldn’t wear all that leather in this store?” or a general incredulous question, “is THAT leather?”
Lots of finger pointing and sneering was going on around me.
Oooops, yep, I forgot… the type that frequent that store are mostly vegetarians or vegans. They don’t like anything related to cows, and a few are quite outspoken about their feelings.
Oh well, I just got the rabbit food I came in for, paid for it, and left. It was funny, though, as I was placing my purchase in my Harley’s TourPak, a woman drove up in the largest SUV I had ever seen. She pulled out four reusable bags from the back seat as she was lecturing her child, “you have to re-use bags because all those plastic bags are bad for the environment.” Sure, saying that while driving a vehicle that gets 10 gallons to the mile.
Ho hum, such is life as a leather-clad biker in the ‘burbs!
Life is short: be cautious when mixing two worlds.
