Why is it that...

people feel the need to make "funny" little comments as you jog on past them? "Hey sweetie? Can I jog with you?" "Bet I can beat you to the corner!" "Keep it up baby/hunny/sweet-thing! You're looking good!" The last one is NOT motivating and I doubt you can keep up. I'm not saying I'm super fast or fit in the least, but that cigarette you're puffing on there, sweetcheeks, is going to limit your chances of keeping up with me for the next 50 feet let alone the next 5km we're running. So don't let your mouth write cheques your sorry ass can't cash. I seriously don't have the time to stop and give you the finger. ...I must be on the mend as my rants are coming back :)

haha ya know what? When we went running on Thursday after work and we were running on Spring Garden which was the busiest part and we had to dart through the crowd of smokers and a transit bus whose exhaust was pumping out fumes etc., I looked at Roxy and said, "No just imagine what it must be like for Marie in T-dot." lol

"So don't let your mouth write cheques your sorry ass can't cash" hahaha that's hilarious!

0nce when it was -15 out and I passed a guy with his dog, he commented that only "crazy skinny people run in the cold" of course he said this to his dog as he was shaking his head at me, thinking I couldn't hear him because of my headphones... personally I think of it as a shining moment cause he called me "skinny"! lol

Personally, I'm with you on all of them except "Keep it up baby/hunny/sweet-thing! You're looking good!"

It's been a number of years since I've gotten that one and I have to confess I kinda miss it.

"I seriously don't have the time to stop and give you the finger" - LOL!

Now I'm wondering if I get those comments too. I have my Slipknot cranked so loud that there's no way I could hear anything around me.

P.O.M. said...

I HATE THAT! I usually pretend I can't hear them becuase of my headphones. But I do hear them. And they annoy me. Some stupid guy once said that I needed to keep running. F him. I was so mad.

Also, there are these creepy Scientology "rehab" houses on my route. There's always interesting specimens sitting out there, commenting. I'm like "hey dude, you're in a freakin' REHAB so SHUT IT!"
