Default Sunday drivers

I don't do much riding on the weekend, but yesterday was a wacky day on my bike.

1. I was buzzed by a Tri-Met bus going down NE Sandy. I don't usually take Sandy, but I came out around NE 54. Pulled into the Bike Galllery saw it was closed and pulled out onto Sandy well ahead of the bus. It was 10:40 in the morning and I was going to get my haircut. Mr. Asshole bus driver decides to fly by me and honk his horn so "I can get out of his way." Not only did it scare the heck out of me, but there was no need as there was no traffic near him.

2. To counter mr. bad bus driver, I had a nice one stop on NE 42 to let me and my family cross on Alameda on our way to Normandale Park (NE 55 and Halsey).

3. At NE 57 and Sandy on our way back from the park- I made an early light than my wife so I went to the BG ahead of her and my son who was riding in one of those seats that attaches to the handle bars. As my wife makes a left from NE 57 onto NE Sandy some idiot waiting at the light going eastbound on Sandy in a big truck starts yelling at her and cussing her out saying she is going to get killed.
