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!
