Define hypocrisy?

99% of the motorists who complain about cyclists have ridden a bicycle at some point in their lives.

100% of the motorists who complain about learner drivers have been one, put out by motorists complaining about learner drivers.

100% of motorists who complain about there being too many vehicles on the road are contributing to the problem of there being too many cars on the road.

(unfortunately I too will have to become a motorist before long as I can no longer run my business without it.)

Its because we all love having a moan, I know I do. I'm always bending my wife's ear about inconsiderate cyclists going too fast on canal tow paths, in parks or jumping red lights or going up pavements to cross traffic lights or trying to overtake me without so much as a ping on a non existent bell (bloody cheek of them).

And cars, well, I'm absolutely positive that I'm the only non idiot driver on the road on my route.

Too many cars on the road? Well schools are back in session tomorrow, so its back to the normal nightmare of close passes, the sound of horns (always from behind) and long traffic queues, lovely.

And why is it that learners always seem to be doing a 3 point turn when I'm coming down that particular stretch of road. Why can't they do that on the industrial estate on a Sunday morning.

That doesn't necessarily make them a hypocrite. To be hypocritical would require them to be complaining about cyclists in general whilst currently being a cyclist. If they cycled in the past then gave it up and now complain about cyclists that doesn't make them a hypocrite.

People who moan about posts that are pedantic, and take the opportunity to point out a misplaced apostrophe.

I cycle and complain about cyclists. I drive a car and complain about motorists.

Am I a hypocrite, or just old, or both. :laugh:
