I have a jackass at work as well, I am not sure why he cant look at the helmet without touching the shield. He has seen it a hundred times but still feels the need to pick it up.

Years ago, I worked at a restaurant and would leave my helmet on a shelf in the back storeroom. One day I went to get it after my shift and some kitchen had set a pint container of sour chocolate milk under the helmet. Hater!

I also like when people pick up your helmet and try it on. I've got a small head, so when people SQUEEZE that sucker onto their melon domes I want to tell them, "you stretch it, you bought it!"

wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next








what really bothers me is when they pick it up and put it on without asking. it doesn't happen so much at the job I'm at now, as I keep my helmet on my desk to wear they would have to reach across me to touch it, but my last job it was hanging on the side of my tool box
