To expand a little on yesterday's tweet, BN2 was waiting at the King Street intersection on Elizabeth Street when this 'clop clop clopping' noise came rapidly up behind her! Suddenly a high-heel-wearing woman using the pavement appeared alongside and started to scream at her:
'Look at you...you're not wearing a helmet!!!!! And look at you in your heels...you're not even dressed for cycling!!!!!!! Look at you!!!!'
'I'm sorry, who are you?' said BN2
'I'm a lawyer and a human rights advocate, and you should be wearing a helmet!'
'Thank you for concern; it has been duly noted.'
With the lights still red and a posse of other pedestrians pooled in this little corner of Sydney, there followed an awkward silence until finally BN2 got her green light and self-identified lawyer got her green man...
Oh dear ...that love of nanny, so very very Australian!!!
