Scooter Boy came about the week before I went down to California to get my scooter (and visit my friend, Lisa Marie). I left a message for my boss, reminding her that I would be gone on Friday by way of saying that I needed a new name tag. I told her that after this weekend, I would no longer by Marty Pfeiffer, I would be "Scooter Boy" and to please order me an appropriate name badge so as not to confuse people.
The name stuck. However, I know of one variant to the name and that is "Scooter Scum" which Bethany (my boss) gave to me when I told her that I couldn't go to the Vancouver Kinko's Picnic because I had to register my scooter and get my Washington License.
Okay, so here's the philosophy - I'm trying to keep this simple:
- Have fun
- Don't freak out about stuff you can't change
- Ride scooters
Also, here is some other tidbits, related to the scooter. If you find more, please send me a note!
- "The best way to fight Communism in Italy is to give each worker a scooter, so he will his own transportation, have something valuable of his own, and have a stake in the principals of private property" (Enrico Piaggio (Produced the Vespa Scooter) from Time magazine, 1952)
