    I wonder if this is somehow connected. It looks like the same place. https://twitter.com/Wash_cycle/statu...93647087198208

    Seriously, does anyone know if there was really a murder there, or just the dockless bike?

    I really REALLY channeled my inner Dirt that day and luckily, I turned off on Glebe while he kept on Commonwealth.
    I might not have been able to call up enough Dirt to keep him out of the dirt.

    No call to spit on anyone more so on nice people like you.

    I'd like to murder every inconsiderately parked dockless bike I see. Is that an option?

    And just to be clear ... I'm not The Angry Cyclist.

    No, definitely not the same place and unlikely unconnected. Commonwealth Ave and Mt Vernon Ave in Del Ray, Alexandria.

But I did turn off and kept thinking to myself, "what would Dirt do?"

    I have been making a conscious effort to not let things bother me as much as they usually do and to immediately let go of stress and anger when a person does something that I consider rude or unsafe. Amazingly, it has actually made my life a little less stressful, which is a REALLY good thing considering the changes in my work environment lately.
    Give yourself a pat on the back because that was a really good call not to chase him down! When he was shouting at me, it was then clear he was nuts, perceiving slights where there were none etc, and threatened physical escalation. In your case, he had no problem committing assault (spitting). Who knows what he would have done when confronted.

    Conscious effort seems like a good idea, I will try the same thing, thanks!
