Had to pop in to kmart for one quick item. Wheeled my bike in to the shopping centre - why not, everyone else is wheeling shopping trolleys. Tried to wheel it past the kmart door guy.
"you can't bring that in here".
"ok, I'll lock it to the railing next to you here, then".
"no, bikes shouldn't be in the centre at all".
"how about I fold it up and put it in a trolley?"
"ok" (in an "as if" tone)
Twist, click, clack, flick, push, click. Lift into nearby trolley.
"wow, that's amazing, isn't it?" (to nearby kmart lady)
"so you're ok for me to take it in now?"
"yes, go ahead"
Grab item, checkout, a minute to reassemble and strap purchase on the back, wheel out through the shopping centre.
I love my folding bike's ability to turn "no" into "ok then"!
