Okay, this is annoying on the bike...I say..."On your left!" Of course, before I pass someone--and they are in the bike lane to the far LEFT. Do they move? No, they stay right there & say, "Thanks..." Move TFO! Or if they have iPod or MP3 players & they block the entire left side of the lane. Or if a couple of pokey Joe's are out for a Sunday ride & they fill the entire lane and could care less if they force someone over into the lane of car traffic in order to pass them. People don't pay attention to courtesy-like bike riding..wtf? Maybe that's why "Mirror Man" in Ironman races wears his mirror--he's just trying to be kind by watching traffic come up behind him so he can move over as you move up through the field...?
Since this is the "cry like a little bitch" thread, I feel compelled to whine and complain when people say, "...could care less...", when what they mean to say is, "couldn't care less."
Also, irregardless and orientated are two "words" on my shit list.
To your original point, however, I am in total agreement. The only thing worse than that is when you say, "on your left" and the rider being overtaken begins to move further to the left.
