An etiquette faux pas?

I had to go to the MSU Ticket Office at Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts during lunch today to pick up my Lady Bears tickets.  When I got there, I faced a bit of a delimma…what to do with my bike?

You see, I don’t normally carry a cable and lock with me.  There’s usually no need since I have secured parking at work.  There are always a ton of bikes parked around the campus, but I hated to leave mine sitting outside without being locked to something.  At the same time, I figured it was probably frowned upon to take bikes inside the buildings on campus when there were so many bike racks provided.  Especially, Hammons Hall.  Hmm…what to do?

I finally decided to feign ignorance and just take it inside with me.  Furtively glancing around to be sure there were no security guys in sight, I quickly slipped in the door and leaned it against one of the big column’s out of sight from the ticket office.    

After conducting my business, I quickly grabbed my stuff and skedaddled out of there!  I guess I got away with it….

It’s been a while since I’ve had a trip home like the one tonight.  Talk about wind!  It was brutal, buffeting me from one side of the road to another.  I was sure glad to get home! 

God bless…

    It would only have been a faux pas if the bike had been messy (wet & muddy), if the building had been crowded, or if you left it there interminably.
