Random Violin

Why #2

Driving into work this morning, as I went through Chapel Hill I noticed a pushbike on the footpath, leaning forlornly up against a pole. There are no houses along that particular stretch, no shops, nothing to account for the presence of a bike there, just bush.
So why, if you're going to just dump your bike somewhere, would you bother leaning it up against the pole? Why not just leave it lying on the footpath? Truly, what difference would it make? I'm seriously curious here.
