Default How to stop on the trail to meet someone - Poll

So when I want to slow down or stop to let some one catch up to me sometimes I pretend to adjust my skate or sometimes I pretend to take an important phone call. What do you do?

I pee..

Alright, alright- I don't pee right away,, I normally just stand there holding it acting like I'm going to urinate.

Then, at the last moment, I turn and wave....

If she's really hot, I pass her, go up a ways, stop, pass out, and pray for CPR.

I tried that, but the damn Chiggers got the best of me.

Do you actually talk to the person or do you just wait for them to pass out and you can get a good view from behind?

Ok, here is what you do. Pee on the trail make sure you cover the whole area. Then when the she slips and falls, help her up.

Good one! Right to the point, but don't know how well it'd work.

The kid was standing and not doing anything, then abruptly ran right across the path. I skidded to a stop, unclipped. He was OK.

As he ran around me and across, I turned to the mother and said "You need to watch your kid".

She lit into me like a bear goes after meat.

"You could slow down"

"It's a BIKE PATH. And I did slow down. You need to look out for your child and teach him to look both ways. It's dangerous".

"Well la de dah. You could slow down".




Finally her husband came and fetched her with a little smile on his face; he wouldn't look at me.

This one only works in the summer, when I've got on some shorty shorts but:

Skate a few feet ahead of him, bend down so he can't help but get a view of my terrific skater's toosh, and pretend to be having trouble with a knee pad, but continue to skate along so that he doesn't pass me. Then slow down at an extremely narrow point in the trail, adjust something else, and skate off to the side a bit so the poor sucker goes by me, smiling coyly and pretend I look totally cute even soaked in sweat and with my hair all horrible.

It usually at least gets a hello...
