In a driver group on a thread about violence against drivers someone mentioned bulletproof cars to stop carjackers. I said I’d just run them over and got reported and a 3 day ban from FB and a 6 day ban from groups. Previously I had reported someone twice that threatened to kill the President and Facebook said it’s not a violation. Twice. Twice they said that isn’t a violation, but me saying I’d run over a guy aiming a gun at me is inciting violence. WTF.
August. A lot has happened since then. Not really life-changing, I’ve just been busy with work, and life in general. I’m still doing Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Grubhub, Instacart, and Shipt, but I have stopped riding. Back in October my derailleur on my mountain bike broke. It now only shifts between 1-7 and clicks like crazy. If I had a bike stand I could probably fix it, but I don’t want to. I got this bike just to get around when my car got repossessed a few years back. I plan to buy a GT in the near future and get back out there. The problem now is last time I rode it was kind of warm, October, and now it’s crazy cold in the mornings. It’s not my favorite weather, but I want to get in shape and that means committing to riding in most conditions. Maybe snow days I’ll take off.
In later news, we’re suing our former landlord. We left the place looking nice and in good condition. We had plenty of issues there we didn’t create, but left it looking nice. We asked for the security back sending the letter after we moved, certified and regular mail, it got signed for, and nothing came. We paid rent on time every month for 5 1/2 years, even during the rent moratorium during the pandemic to the tune of almost $115,000. Our security was $1700, but even though she’s the one that didn’t renew our lease, she felt entitled to it. So we’re suing. Wouldn’t you know it, she counter-sues claiming $5,000 in damages when we moved out. So now she’s going to look like a bully in court when she can’t prove any such claim. People suck.
