ATLANTA, GA–The loudly revving engine in a car driven by Pat Yent, 37, taught a very valuable lesson Saturday morning to area cyclist Seth Fairing, 42. The lesson was taught as Yent, who had been waiting to go around Fairing for well over seven seconds, finally reached a wider section of road. Yent then depressed the gas pedal of his car directly to the floor, loudly revving the engine and teaching Fairing an extremely important lesson.
“He really opened my eyes,” said Fairing. “The way his economy car screamed down the road as he passed me on my bike just put things in a whole new light.”
Fairing recently took up cycling in hopes of improving his fitness, resulting in a long, happier life. He says he’d hoped to spend the extra years gained from cycling, alongside better eating habits, with his loving wife and their children.
“That was before I caused Mr. Yent to be seven seconds late to the next stop light,” said Fairing, voice cracking with emotion. “I am just so, so sorry.”
