While discussing Dromarti's latest gloves in an email thread with Tim and Brendan, Brendan comes up with this classic little vignette.
Wanted to share a good one with you guys while we are on the subject of high priced cycling goods and getting slapped. I bought a pair of Rapha Cyclo-Cross bib knickers from Competitive Cyclist that went on sale for a measly $155 or roughly 1/3 of my annual cycling budget.
Right after I placed the order I got the UPS note as to when the delivery would arrive and it happened to be on Valentine's Day. I also happened to be working from home on V-D because I am such a fine example of a supporting and caring husband. I offered to pick the boys up from school at 3PM.
On my way back I round the corner to our street and what do I see? The UPS truck parked in front of our house. Wife must be looking for a vase and a spot for what should be 58 dozen roses.... she is wrong. I power slide into the driveway and dive in mid-air as the driver is reaching for the doorbell and slap his hand away. It's my Rapha... not roses.
