Look what they did to my poor innocent bicycle!
I am several hours behind schedule today because my bicycle got badly mangled in a failed robbery attempt. I am glad it was not worse. You know what I cannot believe? They stole the little rubber grippy things on my handlebars. Of what possible use could that be to anybody?After rolling, dragging, and carrying the carcass to Bicycle Habitat, I was artistically smeared with some interesting black grease. They gave me some abrasive green Pro-Soap to clean up, and miraculously made my bicycle go again. I love you guys!
I wonder if there is a Yiddish word for those little rubber grippy things, or an English one, for that matter.
