I wonder, if the bartender were to - as one might expect he would do - punch this person in the face repeatedly, would he just keeping popping up for more like a Weeble? Because I would love to see that.
Gob? Is that you?
I didn't think there was anything more moronic than actually owning one of these things... I guess I was wrong.
"So a douchebag rolls into a bar..."
OH. MY. GOB!
ya alls are so "mean"!!! and not a whit witty.
What's that on his elbow? it that some kind of brace? or a prosthetic arm? and he is pretty darn skinny, maybe he is some kind of cripple, still, he should get a wheelchair like any self respecting gimp.
If he is, go ahead and make fun of him, but be sure to offer him a job.

i know you are joking, but for the record it is impossible to be mean to people riding segways. they are by definition an invitation to ridicule.
@7: They are elbow pads. Safety first.
Wait--where did you see him? Because my disabled dad has been missing for like 2 hours.
Safety first, he always said.
shut the front door! Really, someone didn't park their expensive machine of laziness before going to the bar, or the bartender didn't make them leave it outside.
Legal advice on DUI laws and segways anyone?
@6 Anyone who feels entitled enough to bring their Segway into a bar deserves all the ridicule they can get... when was the last time you saw someone try that with a bike?
that dude is not disabled, his legs are fine. i mean, maybe he's missing an arm or he's blind or something, but he could walk if he weren't a douche.
Unless a person is disabled and can't comfortably walk there is no excuse in the world to validate that. What a dickhole.
i met this guy at cal anderson park a few weeks ago while i was with a quadraplegic friend who uses a wheelchair that untilizes the same technology as this man's segway. i also thought this man a lazy fool until he explained that he has a condition that makes it difficult and painful for him to walk. he also has very brittle bones that break easily ( remember that otherwise stupid m. nught shaymalan movie unbreakable ?)which is why he wears a helmet and kneepads. he engages in conversation fairly easily and if you had asked he might have explained his condition to you. the man doesn't reserve your judgement or ridicule. so cut this shit out
Gee, Riz, way to make everybody feel bad!
That's right, we're the victims here.
"Anyone who feels entitled enough to bring their Segway into a bar deserves all the ridicule they can get."
of course they do, i didn't say being mean was a bad thing, here on slog it's something of a rite of passage. this isn't gawker, we're all rubes and teh witty eludes us.
"when was the last time you saw someone try that with a bike?"
well as long as it's not a fixie, because in that case the slog/hell fury shall rain down on your pathetic skinny hipster ass...
but probably as it should.
i, on the other hand 'reserve' both your judgement and ridicule for not spell checking my posts.
Pissy, it's funny that you describe me as "skinny" and "hipster", two attributes that couldn't be further from the truth.
"pathetic ass" works just fine though.
so this guy rides a segway because he's a super villain?
egads-- right here is proof that the internets are really bad at conveying context; 'cause that "you" was not directed at you UNPAID. Just general snarkiness, for the fuck all hell of it. no offense meant.
See we are not all mean hayseeds here in Sea-town.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we love Riz. Riz, you made my day.
oh gob! I just said "Sea-town", whats next?
"Wanna go have some brew-skees?"
kill me nowz.
@14: Just last week, as a matter of fact.
I am mystified by the vitirol about Segways. Sour grapes that you don't have one?
While we are at it, I hope we can start talking about people wearing the wrong color for this season or the length of their socks, too.....
all right, everybody, hang your heads down, shuffle along while we play some Peanuts music...
(yes, another AD reference....)
Unbreakable is a good movie. Watch it again.
#13 - In Idaho a man was charged with a DUI while riding a segway drunk.
Now this man is exactly why the Segway is a great invention. It really is an impressive engineering feat, but there just isn't many applications for it that make any sense. And thanks to all the able-bodied assholes that ride them, people like this have to hear about it from assholes like us.
@14, I've heard stories about people who would ride their motorcycles into the RedRobin, but that was when it was the RedRobin, singular, and I suspect they were Hogs, not wussy little personal mobility vehicles.
