How's My Riding

So we've all seen commercial vehicles carrying notices on the rear with variations on the 'how's my driving' theme, presumably the companies know motorists are hardly likely to call the number really, it isn't worth the trouble, well I wouldn't anyway.

But my husband had a suggestion the other day which I liked very much and, as you'd be likely to be travelling considerably more slowly than if if you were following a truck or van, you'd have time to catch the number or photo of it for later, or even get a passenger to call it right away. His suggestion was that horse riders on the road (he specifically mentioned girls but I think that was unfair because men are just as guilty) should be made to display a similar sign. He gets quite irate when he's held up by riders, especially when they're travelling abreast and chatting away as if there wasn't a queue of 20 vehicles behind them. It did happen to be two girls who caused his little pique, he thought they were inconsiderate and ignorant of other road users, and should be spanked needless to say.

Call if you think I need Spanking

I told him it was a very good idea just to appease him, I said I wouldn't mind taking the calls I bet they'd be amusing. I wouldn't mind taking the spankings either:)

Have a good week.

I agree with your husband they are rude. But if you called and said they need a spanking you would have to have proof it was carried out, like before and after pictures.
Are you still game Ronnie?

Roz said...

LoL Ronnie, I love it; That could well cause some accidents though lol.


PK said...

I could combine the two and put one on my car saying how's my driving - call if driver needs a spanking. Surely someone would call just for the heck of it.

Hermione said...

What a good idea! We don't have many riders here - other than a single mounted policeman - but cyclists are often very inconsiderate, and ride two or three abreast outside the bicycle lane. I'd love to see that sign on the back of a bike!


Katie said...

LOL Ronnie! :) That is cute! Perhaps that would cause even more of a traffic jam!

We have a lot of bicycle enthusiasts around here, and they tend to ride side by side in twos. Drives Rob nuts. They need the same signage. LOL! Many hugs,

<3 Katie

I like PK's idea.

Here it's not horses, but bicyclists who ride side by side or large groups. Can be frustrating.

MrsB often gets the same urges when we get stuck behind male cyclists in their lycra clad bottoms!

I would prefer that you get a good girl spanking for driving so carefully! You might even suggest that to P, as no one has called him to report your bad driving. :)
bottoms up

Archedone - Yep still game:)Thank you.

Roz - You could be right. Thanks.

PK - LOL. I like that. Thanks.

Hermione - Yes sign on them as well. A mounted policeman mmmm. Thanks.

Katie - They do. Why do they ride side by side. Thanks.

SG - We get those as well. Thanks.

Tfwloth - Now I like to be stuck behind those cyclists:) Thanks.

Red - I don;t drive badly but can pretend I did if I get a spanking:) Thank you.

Hi Ronnie,good idea, especially if it was done in a general way, like PK wrote. ...oh wait, walking is healthier anyway. :)

Nina - LOL. I did like his idea. Thanks.


Cat said...

P has a brilliant idea Ronnie! Around here it would be the darn bicyclists that ride two and three abreast chatting away...male and female...they could each receive a good hard spanking!

Hugs and Blessings...

Autumn said...

Haha, I love it. You know I've always wanted to call one of those "How's My Driving" numbers and comment on how exemplary and superb the person's driving is. I'm sure nobody ever calls, and, if they do, it's probably to complain. I figure maybe I can make someone's day (or get them a raise!) by complimenting their driving!

Minelle Labraun said...

LOL...I love to ride side by side with my I need to be spanked too! Just like you Ronnie...I'll take the spanking!

Baxter said...

Glad I am not the only person who gets annoyed by the buttheads that ride bike two or three abreast and then have the temerity to get pissed when you blow the horn or give them the finger when you go by them. they get dressed up in lycra with racing team shirts and think they are hot stuff. well they aren't and should all be spanked, hard.

ronnie said...

Cat - We have a lot of cyclist which annoys P but this time it was the girl horse riders. Thanks.

Autumn - I wonder if anyone does call. Thanks.

Minelle - Yes, you should be spanked:) Thanks.

Baxter - Some of them do have nice bums though:) I know what you mean, annoying. Thanks.


MrJ said...

haha - I can see how that would work.

ronnie said...

MrJ - I think it would very well:) Thank you.
