Tonight after work I ordered Chinese food from a local Vietnamese restaurant. I know, it doesn’t really make sense but that’s the way it is. Anyway as I am driving over there my brother calls me. We are talking and getting rather involved with the conversation. I don’t talk to my brother for very long usually. We both happened to be driving so we were able to talk longer than usual.

I pull up to the restaurant but since I am still talking I just sit in the car. I am parked on a very busy street in the ‘hood. Out of the corner of my eye I see a man riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. He has a pick sticking out of the back of his hair. It has been decades since I have seen a pick so he caught my attention. Upon further inspection I notice he has an infant balanced on his thigh and held in his left arm while he steers with his right.

As I am telling my brother what I see the guy with the baby rides off the sidewalk and into traffic. It is rush hour and very busy.

I would have called the cops but there were two in view. One heading west and one heading east. I don’t know if they stopped him as he rode through the intersection and I couldn’t see him anymore. There was no way they didn’t see him.

What was this man thinking? Is this illegal? It must be. Just when I think I have seen stupidity at it’s finest I am surprised by something like this.
