That's it. I've had it with those little brats
that scoot around on those overpriced folding can-openers
known as Razors. The damn things have no real value
as a mode of transportation. The wheels are only slightly larger than those of rollerblades
, and the energy required to push yourself forward hardly seems worth the effort. But for some cretinous reason, they're the hottest thing since oh, I dunno...Pogo Ball
And given the average IQ of your typical Razor pilot, I'm surprised I haven't seen more accidents involving these chrome beasts. The best to date happened at my college campus, which is known for being a bit hilly and quite crowded. I was walking along an open hallway that runs alongside our liberal arts buildings when some nameless frat boy sporting his Abercrombie best nearly clipped me as he scooted down the hallway.
I scowled at the ruffian, and glanced ahead to watch the sea of students part for Moses on Wheels. Seconds later, and much to my delight, the moron colided head on with a fellow RazorHead who was coming from the opposite direction. The dorks managed to take down a couple of pedestrians in the process, making the scene all the more visible. I chuckled softly to myself, and noticed several others doing the same as the two buffoons got up and gave the standard "sorry dude" RazorHead greeting before going on their way. As an added bonus , both of them had managed to accidentally collapse their scooters in the process.
These people must be stopped.
Anyone with fifty bucks to burn can get on one of these steel tinkertoys, which is part of the problem. It is a known fact that anything that requires even a minute level of skill to operate becomes an instant idiot magnet. A perfect example of this phenomenon is the Internet. I won't even discuss the implications this postulate holds over America Online. The point is, we now have thousands of mobile idiots polluting our sidewalks and streets. Walking is now hazardous to your health. At any moment, some brat could come tearing around a corner, and POOF! there go your ankles.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
