I refuse to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man

I decided to take advantage of the quiet roads this morning and went for a ride on my recumbent around Wolverhampton. It was 4am and I was soon witness to the dawn chorus.
When 99.9% of the tossers are drunk in their beds the city is quite a nice place to be.

It was quite a nice ride out into the countryside and back again. I occasionally passed clubbers still wandering homw. Girls with short skirts and no knickers and guys in a somewhat damp state.

The on the way back I was spotted by two prats, also out cycling. One takes a look at me when I stopped for some lights. "Are you riding that for charity?"
The cheeky bastard!
I gave em an indignant "No!", which was just enough to let them know they weren't abusing a true local to the Black Country.
No I will never adopt the black country accent.
"Ohhhhh, (Imagine camp south african if you can)....."Yam not frum round ere am ya?"
The accent is fascinating and inpenetrable unless you're born to it.

"Bite that tongue ol' son".....I said to myself.
5.45am And the last thing I need is to start up a conversation/arguement.
The recumbent bicycle owner benefits from a comfortable bicycle but has to do battle with every uncle tom, dick and dickwad that thinks you value his opinion.
The lights change and I leave them standing, waiting for a wise response. All I wanted was the peace of the morning and the freedom of a three lane carriageway.

Don't ever give up searching for the fun in life.
