I was trying to lock my bike up to a bike rack that happened to have a medium sized dog tied to it, while the owner was getting coffee. The dog was so happy and excited to see me, but I was also locking my bike up at the same time, placing the bike between myself and the dog, which thoroughly confused the dog.
I'm right here! Hello! Why are you putting the bike between us? Why is it taking you so long to lock it up? Hello! Hello! Did you forget about me??
Finally I finished locking the bike up and gave the poor dog a proper hello.
