overheard, by bicycle

I'm commuting home the other day and pull to a stop at the light in Inman Square. Behind me, another cyclist stops and I hear him begin to rant in that tone of voice that's just best ignored. The rant is long-winded and full of cursing but seems to boil down to "women suck". The light turns yellow the other way, and as we both start to take off, he says, "Oh wait, you're a guy. Well, you still suck". The light turns green and I accelerate up Hampshire street. Fading into the distance behind me, I hear a somewhat out-of-breath "Huh. Maybe you don't suck so much after all".
