Mellow Yellow Monday - I Want To Ride My Bicycle ..

MellowYellowMondayBadge

Every time walk into my local Walmart and see this guy pedalling around, Queen's 'Bicycle Race', pops into my head ....


'Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like'


Apparently he is the 'Safety Guy' for this particular Walmart. He peddles around all day checking on safety stuff.

He has this sign on the back of his bike that says 'FREDDY ROCKS' . Not sure if his name is Freddy :-)


As I saw him peddle past the melons, I thought to myself, he'd be a perfect subject for Mellow Yellow Monday.

So I chased him past the jewellery counter and the ladies and men's department and the cash registers and finally caught up with him at the entrance...

He graciously agreed to pose for me...

I then went back to my shopping, satisfied that this week's MYM post was taken care of..

I think my friend Lori, who was with me, thought I was a bit daft :-)

Have a great week everyone!!!

Very interesting shot! I'm glad that you chased after him. I never have seen a security like this. Have a wonderful week, Karen :)

What a great post! I so want to go there and meet him...but what I really want to know is if you saw any fat bottom girls to go with him?

If only all safety/security people had this guy's sense we'd all be a lot happier. I bet everyone smiles when they see him.

How interesting. I don't know if he could safely bicycle through our Wal-Marts. They're always so crowded.

You gotta love a guy who PUTS joy into his job! Totally disarming. Can you imagine though when he has to escort someone to the back office? It makes me LOL!
