Whilst I was in the midst of all the confusion and finding myself...I found a little gift on my bike box which made me unsure of how to react - laugh, cry, be flattered, be angry, be disgusted?
Laugh because it was a somewhat-kinda-warped cute kinda pick-up, cry because "What the hell, how long has it been on my bike? How many people have seen it? Wah lao so paiseh!!!!", flattered because someone who knew I ride THIS bike wants to sleep with me, and sleep safe so that's kinda thoughtful..lol~, and angry because "Hello? Who do you think I am??? So cheap ah?! Even social escorts get paid to be slept with okay! Kns...@$%#%^#".
Anyway, I snapped a couple of pictures, and threw the condom away on the floor behind the bike parking lots. (Sorry for littering, but I didn't want to hold it for longer than a second, and there was no bin within 100 metres of me.)
Well, my perk-me-up (kinda~ this doesn't happen every day you know...) for the week.
Days prior to this, I met another rider after I was parked and was going off (he was just going to his scooter). It was raining when I was riding home, so what I do normally is just to hang my raincoat and rain pants on my bike mirrors to air dry. (If you fold them and keep them before they're dry they somehow develop a really funky smell...) Hours later, I had to go out and when I went to the bike, the raincoat and pants were gone!!!
Okay not really, I found them folded and stuffed inside my helmet with a note from the scooter-rider telling me he had helped to fold my raincoat because he was worried someone else might take it. And left me his name and number.
Good try dude...but because my raincoat and pants were WET, and you folded them and stuffed them inside my helmet, my helmet was now wet and felt icky when I had to wear it, my raincoat and pants did not get to air-dry and I had to keep them in my bike box and I would have to air them again later.
And the most classic part? Er...by stuffing them in my helmet, people CAN STILL STEAL my raincoat if they want you know? It's not like it's kept inside my box.
Days later I saw him again when I was heading out, (mind you, that condom was still on the floor) and after like 20 seconds of my fiddling with my jacket and gloves, he "suddenly" noticed my presence (he was probably thinking if I knew the condom was by him, if it was, and deciding if he should talk to me since I threw that away) and went
"How's your raincoat?"
and I rode off.
When I came back the condom was no longer on the floor. I wonder if he, or who else, had taken it. Unopened ma, don't waste. LOL!!!
