    -Getting your bike stolen, then finding it and having to buy it back from the guy because you dont have any proof it is indeed yours.
    (true story)
  2.  
    Leaving your bike locked up over the weekend at school, coming back to find the frame wrapped halfway around a metal support bar.
    Ten years later, I STILL don't lock my bike to anything at ground level.
  3.  
    Headsets that always come loose (you know those ones)

    Riding both a fixed gear and a road bike, and forgetting you can't coast through corners on the fixed gear

    How expensive strip clubs can get

    Old people who don't understand why *insert new bicycle feature here* is better than the *insert an outdated bicycle feature here* on their 1971 Motobecane

    People who give you shit because all the stuff in your shop is made in Asia. So is everything else, and if it wasn't, the toolings probably were, and the steel to make those toolings, etc. etc.

    Meh, bad day, good to vent

    -Leaving your house with prescription sunglasses, staying out longer than expected, and then riding home in the dark with no glasses or headlight.

    -Tubes blowing out because you put your bike in a car that got up to 130 degrees

    -People who breathe hard and bounce out of their seats passing you in the bike lane and then promptly turn onto a residential street because they just blew their wad

    having an icecream cone with one of your friends, then wiping out
    in the street in front of a subaru, filled with women
    at 8:30pm, then not recovering your ice cream.
    Now that sucks.

    -Former roomates who think your $2200 roadbike looks like an 8-ball.
    -Running over (or should I say hitting?) a jack rabbit at about 30km/hr. I hope you will pardon my lack of compassion for the poor bunny, but my back still looks like beef jerky.

    Got you beat, RE. I'm guilty on all four counts.

    As my Music Department advisor asked me two weeks before I graduated, 25 years ago: "So, what are you going to do now - scoop ice cream?"

    Yep, pretty much.
  7.  
    Working for 2 months straight, over 100 hours a week, on a $300K project and watching a salesman who did absolutely nothing on it receive a $20K commission check.

    Luke warm coffee.

    Writing this from my office on a Sunday.

    Yeah, I'm a little bitter at the moment.....

    Generic hubs/cogs/lockrings. Cog slipping during skid stops is not fun.

    Not getting the profile hubs you won on Ebay because the seller wants to cancel transaction, probably because the bidding didn't go as high as they expected

    Running into anything with a bike, like a giant cement wall.

    Eating shit. I'm sure that would fuckin' suck.
