Did I miss something?

Why is it that people feel the need to put their helmet on while they are driving down the road when you pass them?

Lemme get this right, people in cages put helmets on when they see you?
(I'm laughing really bad right now)

There was a John Cusak movie back in the 80's that when ever he was having a bad day and he pulled up to a light in his cage these Japanese guys would pull up next to him with a sports announcer calling the play by play. I think you're living this in a strange kinda way. Take 2 aspirin and call anyone else in the morning.
