Imagine you bought a cycle for 11 grand and it got stolen.
Now imagine you saved up for months to make that 11 grand and cycled everywhere ever since. And always locked it up against poles and kept running out of buildings to make sure it’s still where you’d left it. And you never lose things because you’re never careless with them. Imagine all of that, and then imagine that the one time you messed up and didn’t lock your cycle right was the time that some asshole came along and stole it.
The world is full of horrible people, Zonk, but there must be nicer ways of reiterating that.
Cheer up, Si. If ever someone deserved another cycle, it was you. I’ll wish some of my famous luck to you.
