Wow! got a fairly strong reaction from a person today that I never had before.
Here’s the scenario: I put my board on the ground after carrying it through a no-skating zone and started to ride up a ramp very slowly and keep a respectful speed at almost walking speed. Suddenly a woman decided to bark at me " a so a fauler hund!" which is german for " what a lazy dog!". I did’nt realise that the lady was actually adressing me. It was only after 3 seconds I realised that she was barking at me and passed here already and so I did’nt bother to confront her and waste my time.
Ok - so here’s the hilarious part. The “lady” was overweight and was already breaking a sweat while walking down the very ramp I was riding up . Now please don’t get me wrong here - I’ve nothing against people that are fat, so I’m not hating on them in general and it’s certainly not why I’m talking about it. I found the envy that manifested in that person accusing me of laziness that did’nt bother to look in her own mirror first irritating the moment I had realised I was her target. But after I thought about it I found the irony rather amusing.
I get it though…I understand where the hate was coming from. There she was struggling, lugging her own weight around in the heat all sweaty, suffering…and all then comes a guy on an esk8 moving and cruising seemingly without effort. I know deep down she wished she had the agility and all that it takes to ride a board lol Yeah, I get it. So yes, I guess it’s easier to hate on people rather than take self responsibility and clean up their own show. What she ignored is that I workout at least 1 time a week and I discipline myself to avoid sugars and all that junk and eat “clean” to stay lean. I try to stay disciplined most of the times which is not easy most of the times. I stay away from the bad stuff…etc…
Speaking of bad stuff…you know what else is bad? Public transportation in summer packed with sweaty, smelling people and some of which are hate-filled losers that have nothing better to do than bark their misery at other people and try to make them feel miserable as well.
To those types I say; take a deep breath and sniff each others farts, armpits and misery in that stinking bus, tram or whatever thing that you need to ride to get you to that place you call home. I’ll make sure to smile at you next time we meet on a hot summer day!
ESK8ing EFFING ROCKS!!!
btw. the SK3 5065 280kv sucks compared to the SK3 5065 235kv. TORQUE TORQUE TOOOOORQUE! LOL I think its now obvious that I’ll take torque over speed any day…lol
