dugitman: "Sorry to compromise the professional look of that pile of lumber, paneling, and assorted trash next to your bike rack."
MFAWG: There has to be more to this.
buzzcut73: Sounds like the company was trying to mark a box in a green 'certification' program by installing the rack and encouraging bicycling in other ways, but doesn't actually want people to use a bike, they just want to be able to say they meet whatever green standard they've paid consultants to meet.I'm pro environment, I've even made a decent living at working in the environmental compliance field, but these green certification programs are mostly a way for consultants to make money, and a way for a company to make themselves look good while not actually accomplishing much.
mongbiohazard: If you think a bike being properly parked in a bike rack is somehow "unprofessional" then you don't know what professional even means.
cowgirl toffee: Anyone else sign the "support turtle racing" petition at the bottom?

megarian: cowgirl toffee: Anyone else sign the "support turtle racing" petition at the bottom?Yup.Turtles make me happy. So do tortoises.
Pribar: how does one get a parking ticket on a bike, I could understand if the rider was physically present, but a ticket attached to my bike would end up in the dumpster, I mean do they have license plates for bikes there or something? how do they know who it belongs to?
edmo: I wish this was some sort of rare screwball corporate/government moment. Wish.
Quantum Apostrophe: If I had the money, I'd get a huge forklift (electric!), smash into the rack and leave the lift there. A forklift is a professional tool...
nytmare: edmo: I wish this was some sort of rare screwball corporate/government moment. Wish.Yes, that's why it's on the news, because it's really common; happens all the time. The news only prints stuff that occurs frequently.
abhorrent1: Wish I could ride my bike to work. 30 Miles. Too far.
EvilEgg: If they were so concerned they could perhaps provide a bike room. That way no one has to know that dirty hippies work there.
mongbiohazard: MFAWG: There has to be more to this.20 years of professional experience in the business world has taught me that no, there doesn't have to be any more to this. There *could* be more to it, but doesn't have to be.
Plant Rights Activist: the note is there because a fixed gear isn't a real mode of transportation it's an inefficient and cumbersome way of expressing your hipsterdom.
stirfrybry: Global warming alarmiss are all about image. To them, awareness is the goal. They often care less about their impact than the bogeymen they decry.
