Today, after being promised a job and attending five full days of training and induction for a job as a bicycle delivery officer, I was denied the job at the very end of the last day for, "riding my bicycle too quickly on the road." FML

Well, it matters. What would you do if you were going too fast, and you fell off your bike, damaging the goods you were delivering? Or what if you turned a corner too fast, and got intimately acquainted with the front of a truck? It might seem ridiculous to not be able to race around on a bicycle, since you can't pedal fast enough to break the speed limit, but there are other things you need to account for, instead. We can't all live our lives like we're in Premium Rush. You have to be responsible for your actions, especially when doing your job.

Check in next week for another Dad lecture from yours truly.
