The looks I get when Im out biking this (snowy & cold) winter are amazing.
I can define the look I get from motorists in a word…. Sympathy.
“OMG hes out in the Snow & COLD. Biking!? Poor guy.
I wonder….Do they know that I feel sympathy for them as well?
I know nothing of their life. BUT
I DO know that that 2018 Escalade “Starts at $73.995″
Quick math puts the Monthly payment at about $1400. For 5 years.
That’s before the Gas, maintenance, Registration, etc.
“OMG hes paying well over $1800 a month for that beast!?” Poor guy.
Looks can be deceiving:
Just as judgements can be.
They know nothing of my life …. And I of theirs!
They probably think I am “residentially” challenged or the such!
I “probably” think that Beast is overkill for size and price!
The thing is:
(no one knows…)
I do not know. Maybe $1800 a month is no strain for him?
They dont know..Maybe I enjoy the freedom & simplicityof getting around town on bike?
What IS important is that our lifestyle choices serve us.
I can only speak for me.
Im finding my fit within the “sub culutre” of less.
