    dear unleashed dog owners.
    I do not have a problem with dogs. The owners of dogs might be where my problem is. There is a thing called leash law. You have a dog outside, if you are not around, they are to be tied up. Is that so difficult to understand? I got the snot scared out of me on yesterdays bike ride. 2 dogs, one looked like a pitbull and the other was fast behind the first one. All i saw was a large head and lots of teeth. Pepper spray went flying everywhere, i unclipped to save some grace, and screamed. After my minute of increased heartrate and cadence passed, i paused for some drink. my water bottle was covered in pepper spray. Tastes rather warm and left my lips tingly all evening, and i tasted it even after dinner and the smell was still stuck in my nose. Note to self, always check water bottle if pepper spray has been used and order more spray.

    Dear dog owners
    in keeping with Shellyj,
    also, when I'm hiking in the park, please keep your dogs on their leashes so everyone doesn't hear you for miles yelling to/at your dog to come back/keep up. Geez.

    Dear Local Phone Co Supervisor and System Tech Persons:

    Thank you so much for responding in person in minutes after my call. The phone and the DSL seem to be happy with each other finally and, most wonderfully, you got rid of the jack with the nasty spring-loaded door. I even posted this note while on the phone and the DSL connection didn't bog down into oblivion.

    Woohoo.

    Dear Special Education Teacher with your umpteen advanced degrees,
    When I ask you to fill out ONE simple Social/Emotional Developmental Rating form on ONE little child, could you PLEASE try not to scribble all over the paper!??? All you needed to do was fill in a few circles with a #2 pencil. I have a feeling the 4 year old student could have done a neater job!~

    Thank you for your attention to detail....

    Dear Rollerblader-girl who wears Victoria's Secret "I love Pink" sweat suit, next time you go rollerblading in the park please lower the volume on your Ipod. You see that this park has a lot of people on their bikes, runners, walkers, kids. Why listen to music so loud that you can't hear when someone passing you yells out "On your left"?? So what do you decide to do? - swing right in front of me and then when I hit your rollerblades with my front wheel you don't even realize what happen. Maybe if you could hear someone behind you then you would not ride in zig zags and actually maintain your line? Maybe not...

    Dear collegiate faculty and staff (particularly faculty),
    I know you signed up for a certain # of meals and that they expired on May 1 but do NOT get pissed with me b/c you decided not to read the contract! Yes you lost money or meals when the expiration date occured, but do not blame me for it, especially when you signed months in advance, giving you plenty of time to eat said # of meals. You are supposed to have a degree in higher education, I would expect you to be able to read, especially read before you sign a contract. But, maybe I'm asking for too much. Just get off of mine and my coworkers backs b/c you were too lazy to read 2 simple paragraphs.

    Dear L
    You've been incredibly cool and supportive the past seven months. You told me this morning that God never closes a door without opening a window. You told me earlier that everything in the universe happens for a reason. Someone told me last night, that had I not gotten this job with you, I never would have, through the twisting path of circumstance, met her. There are people I love whom I would have never known, people who were hurtful whom I would have never been able to leave. You've been a guide, an inspiration and a mentor. I wish I knew how you manage such an overwhelmingly positive outlook despite setbacks and stress. Everyone has a gift, and I think those- your incredible humanity and kindness- are yours. Thank you.

    Dear person in my pole dancing class,

    There are times it takes nerve to take this class. I realize you are much younger and apparently run marathons in record time (according to you), easily do things requiring arm/ab strength, and don't appear to have time constraints put upon you by working. There are times I struggle because I am the oldest one in class, am definitely the least flexible, and am working to getting back into the shape I was in before moving to Washington.

    Imagine my surprise when I saw your Seven bike as I was going into class yesterday. I didn't know you cycled! I asked you questions about components (you didn't know what you had), gear sizes (ditto on not knowing) and you were able to deflect all by announcing that the bike was built for YOU!!! I asked you about hill climbing which has been my nemesis this year as I am getting into shape and I noticed you had a double with a fairly small cassette in the back. You said you had no problems at all with hills and the bike flies up them.

    All of that is ok until you said loudly, with other people around and in a patronizing tone, "it's ok, you will climb hills better as you start to lose weight".

    I don't know if you realize it but I'm pretty much the same size I was when I was working out a lot. I also don't know if you realize that I probably have a longer riding history than you do. And maybe you don't realize that I know I need to get back into shape which is why I'm riding 100+ miles a week, and have also started running, and am doing things like taking pole dancing class.

    It was all I could do to stay in class. In a group where you are a bit vulnerable due to the nature of the class, I think your comment was unwarranted and uncalled for.

    Oh and fellow classmate? Not that I'm spiteful but when I tearfully told DH what had happened, I gave him a brief description of you. He remembered seeing you from the one time he dropped me off at class two months ago. He said at the time that you looked like a high maintenance b&*^% and that is why he remembered seeing you. It doesn't make it all better but it goes to show that there are people who see you for what you are.

    Dear TE ladies:

    Thank you for being so civilized. There's a new "Dear So and So" thread over at Bikeforums.net, and it quickly degenerated into sophomoric sex-related posts. I'm so glad that we're not like that.

    Dear Bikeforums Dear So and So thread:
    Finally! A place where I could let my inner 13 year old out to play!
    ...and yet...
    the realization that I should have to go somewhere special to be a crass dork feels too similar to kindly getting up and leaving the room to pass gas.

    *sigh* Again I am encouraged by my inner adult to confine my inner 13 year old to her room until she can play nice with others.

    Dear kind ladies near the end of the line at the post office,
    thank you for defending me when the harpie behind me accused me of cutting in line when I returned to the counter (as I had been told to do) with my customs slip. I hadn't cut in line and her five minute harrangue about how, "if we were in Mexico, you'd be shot!" was really quite upsetting. Being heckled by others in line saying, "I've got the gun! I've got my knife, etc..." was also very upsetting. But then, I'm such a delicate flower ... Thanks for shutting them all up with your cheery, "have a nice day! " as I slunk away in shame, even though I hadn't done anything wrong.

    Jeeze, I thought I lived in a redneck mecca.
    I wonder where this woman got her knowledge of the Mexican Post Office?

    Dear co-workers,

    Just a little heads-up, as the new person at work I find it decidedly UN-helpful when your way of welcoming to the new job is to give me all the details of who you hate here, why you hate them, and why working here sucks so bad. I'm new, let me enjoy it for a while.

    Secondly, for those of you who continuously complain about how hard it is to work 37.5 hours a week for good pay, great benefits, AND in a protected civil service job...I suggest you try a job where you work horrible hours, have to clean up poop/pee/blood/barf, low pay, rotten benefits, and no raise for four years.

    Sincerely,

    The new gal

    Dear Germs,

    You must be strong and healthy germs and i see that you all have found my body to be a good host for your party. I apologize that my immune system is giving you such a difficult time. however this playful roughhousing that you are doing in my head and abdomen and muscles is keeping me from making my May riding goals.

    Do you think that you could possibly move your party elsewhere? My immune cells are tired
