Title says it all.I’ll start it off- while I was practicing at a local skate park(major low quality!), a kid about 2 years older than me asked why I bought a unicycle, “for S**ts and laughs or what” he said
And another time someone in my math class(i think) Told me i’d get beat up one day for riding.
i get alot of WOWs and such. i was riding with my friends and he was like “im surprized we havnt been busted by the cops” as soon as he said that a cop comes rolling up just as im hoping up this wall and he stops and was like “wow thats really cool, i had one when i was a kid.” we started talking and i offered him a ride on it but he declined.
i went into a bike shop and asked the mechanical to fix my chain and he looked at me and said yeah sure and ill replace your headset while im at it too. hahahahah
I always get boys who think they’re all macho and say, “I can do that too,”
and when I offer to let them use it they say something like,“I’m not wearing the right shoes.” Or they try to ride it and fall on thier butts.
Probably the best one for me was when this lil kid at the park. On his banana seat and trainig wheels (no lie) asked me to do a trick. Then he proceeded to call me an idiot right in front of his father. It was soo adorable. His father apologized but I didn’t have too big of a problem with it. Sometimes lil kids can be hilarious. And when I get asked what happened to the rest of my bike I tell them " I only locked up my handle bars. That bloody theif got the other half".
I was walking up the slight slope of my street to mount my BC wheel, and some lady riding one of those cruiser bikes with the curvy frames said, “I wish you luck kind sir!”, I replied with “Thank you fair lady!” I wish she had stopped to watch, I wonder what she would have said after seeing me ride it?
I was riding my bike yesterday, and a couple times I had kids ask where my “One wheeler” was.
A friend and I were out with our unis at night one day before school started again in 2006, and someone driving in our direction on the same street made a right turn too sharply and went onto the curb and partway into that yard, presumably after the sight of two unicyclists distracted him. Might just be due to the darkness.
