Your bike is in the basement of 'big bar' because they are very kind. Stop being a dick + locking your bike to our bikes."
I think the sign say "Your bike is in the basement...", indicating that they had liberated their bike from the douchebags and that the bar had kindly placed it in the basement so as not to be stolen since they had obviously cut the lock.
Thanks Dave .... I misread the sign, and changed it from 'our' to 'your.'
East 7th Btw 1st and 2nd has a serious lack of bike parking spots, and as a result has a serious douche bike parking problem! I lock up there pretty frequently and once had an asshole stack his bike above another (possibly abandoned) bike in front of that fancy coffee shop on the south side of the street. When I went to unlock mine, both bikes went tumbling over. I tried to pick them up, but it was impossible and i wound up leaving them both on the ground. Not that I feel so bad... who stacks their bike on top of another bike and locks to it?!?
love the big bar. ray and walter the owners are neighborhood stalwarts. everyone should go have a drink there!
I am working on a flyer, in a similar vein, only its addressed to the whole world, and regards general douchebaggery.
Dear bar owners: proper etiquette in this situation is to cut the offending bike free and then throw it off a bridge. We can let you off this time, but if it happens again please follow protocol.
