#FF — Yee-haw!

Uber-man dropped them at the Segway rental from the train station. Jib and Tag had been studying Segway touring routes for NYC; the map was criss-crossed in varying-colored neon highlighters.

Jib spied a pub a few doors down. “Tag, let’s have one for the road first, shall we, and chit-chat the locals for any tips.”

Jib, who never knew when to quit, was on his fifth pint of Magners when Tag said, “Let’s go.”

Jib mounted his two-wheeled steed and saw a wide open range of concrete.

Yee-haw!,” he hooted as he leaned forward full throttle.

He never felt a thing.

  1. Taxis are notorious for not making allowances for errant pedestrians, or those on smaller sets of wheels. But as a person walking, I’ve learned not to trust bikes, scooters, skateboards, or anything related either. Even the sidewalks are not safe. (K)

    1. I can imagine NYC is the most dangerous for pedestrians. Do you think the city could operate if motor vehicles were prohibited? I know there are a few big countries in Europe and S America that have turned bike-friendly and seem to be doing ok.

  2. I snort laughed at this and now I feel bad for being a Mean Girl,lol.
    People who ride Segways look HILARIOUS doing it. I’d imagine drunk ones who yell Yee haw look even funnier.

  3. Ouch! I would have thought his sense of balance would have gone. He probably felt he was floating. Hopefully a lesson learnt with a trip to the hospital and not the morgue.
