As I came to a halt at the intersection of Dahlia and Florida Avenue, this morning, I could hear a car coming up Dahlia behind me. I was in the right lane, which is also the through lane, waiting for the light to turn green before going straight on down Dahlia.
I glanced over my shoulder, as the car pulled to a halt behind me, and saw that the right turn signal was blinking. I lifted the bike up and stepped to the left side of the lane so that the car could go ahead and turn right on red.
As she pulled up beside me, the lady driving the car rolled down her window.
"Thank you, so much," she said.
"No problem," I replied.
"Have a great morning," she called out, as she started her turn.
I smiled all the way to work, and I am still smiling while I recall this. Isn't it amazing how far a little courtesy and consideration can go?
