Today, I was cycling home when I saw my sister, who lives a 4 hour drive away, walking past me on the path. I turned my head and called to her, causing me not to notice the pothole in front of me. My front wheel went in and I went over the handlebars. It wasn't even my sister. FML

Well that must have been embarrassing...

Braking before turning your head might have worked better. Just a thought.

Be haply she didn't break her goddamn neck, who gives a shit about a phone compared to a life.

what phone are you talking about? she yelled out her sisters name. not called on a phone.

#14, why??? I think She'd rather her phone break, than bones,

If OP had a unicycle, then her only wheel would go in said pothole and she would go flying anyways.

*psst* It was a joke. No handlebars or front wheel to worry about.

"I can ride my bike with no handlebars No handlebars, no handlebars". (:

I think this is one of those rare instances where a hovercraft may be slightly more effective than a unicycle.

#2, of course, with a unicycle, the stranger would have claimed to be the sister, just in the hopes of having some unicycle-riding coolness rub off on them.

exactly what I had thought. especially since OP wasn't paying attention, they could've ran into someone else.

brake before turning your head, or turn before breaking your head...its your choice

Oh man :/ , but was she at least nice enough to stop and see if you were okay ?

I'm guessing the stranger felt bad for you. Your sister would have probably laughed her ass off at you!

Why would you think it's your sister if she lives 4 hours away? If you're on good terms with her (which I'm assuming you are since your aim was to say hi), I'm sure she would tell you if she was in the area.

That's why I always wear shades... So I can leer at people without getting noticed. :)

I am on really good terms with my family that lives 3 hours away; occasionally I drive up to piss around town and do some shopping, and fail to mention I am in town. Sometimes you just don't feel like visiting people.

Well, I hope you're okay. You have to pay attention.!

Those damn sneaky potholes. They always appearing at the worst times.

Is there ever a good time for potholes?

When someone you hate rides I to them?
