Gold Cadillac Vs. Bike: A Play in One Act

The morning commute. Cool breeze drifts through Washington. A bike rides West on R Street NW, passes Rhode Island Ave., and stops at 7th Street. A Gold Cadillac approaches from behind.

GOLD CADILLAC: You need to stay in the fucking bike line.

BIKE (in the bike lane): I'm in the fucking bike lane.

GOLD CADILLAC: You need to stay in the mother fucking bike lane. You need to stay away from my fucking car back there (indicating intersection), motherfucker.

BIKE: There is no bike lane there, you fucking asshole, it's an INTERSECTION.


GOLD CADILLAC: You better stay away from my car before I run over your ass.

BIKE: What the fuck is wrong with you you motherfucker, are you really going to murder a human because you don't understand how lanes work, you fucking fuck?

The light turns green.

GOLD CADILLAC: Stay away from my fucking car, you fucking bitch!

BIKE: Fuck you, motherfucker!

The GOLD CADILLAC drifts slightly into the bike lane, dumps a bottle of water on BIKE, laughs maniacally, hangs a right, and speeds away.

BIKE: Fuck.

BIKE hangs head in shame, knowing CAR  has won this time.

    BIKE remembers GOLD CADILLAC's license plate and files assault charges. BIKE has grounds to do so.

    BIKE wasn't fast enough to see it because BIKE doesn't drive a fucking caddy so BIKE shames GOLD CADILLAC on the Internet instead. Fucker.

    I'd like to put money on Gold Caddy being from MD. 8 times out of 10 when I'm yelled at, sped past way too closely or have some other hostile driving behavior exhibited toward me its some asshole from MD.
