    Just Move Over

    I absolutely hate this. Especially when Im running on a track or greenway and people stop to talk in the middle of the path! Or when the walkers walk in the middle in a group of 2 or more and take up the whole path. Hello, others are using this ya know! Just move to the side to...

    Seriously! And even when they see you waiting,

    still make no effort to get their lazy ***** out of the way. It's ridiculous.

    I walk fast. So even

    if two people are walking slower than I am in front of me, I will want them dead. Not literally though. Just like... you know what I mean. ~ Lys ♪

    The Worst Times

    The worst of this type of behavior is when you are wanting to get through with a wheelchair and you have to all but tell them to get out of the way. I have more than once with my son have spoken the words "move it or loose it" loud enough for them and anyone standing...

    Oh Yes

    I have always been intimidated by crowds. The popular people always bullied me in primary school and avoided me in high school. I've always felt less confident without my friends around. I'm almost 20 now and it got better. I can face up to people on my own just fine. But that...

    I'm not saying I hate the people

    who do this. But if I had absolute power, I would have everyone of those f*ckers executed

    Please Be Considerate, Clear The Walkways

    Like other people here, I've also encountered the proverbial blocked high school hallway. In fact, for me it's one of the most reminiscent characteristics of my high school life...wading through conversations. I remember thinking, "come on, get to class so that I can get to mine...

    Really Is Annoying

    When you have to wait for someone to stop talking to get by them.  They just stand there and its annoying and rude, but if you say something then you get that funny look no matter how politely or nice you make it sound you know they are thinking "how rude". I...

    This is so annoying, rude, and just dumb. It's a WALKway, so why don't you WALK? If you want to socialize, please move aside and allow others to use the space for it's intended purposes.

    They should move to the side

    if they are going to do that. But they either don't care or they are just too braindead to figure it out.

    Wal-mart And Roadways

    I remember the days when someone in HS would just stop dead in front of me and block everything, or in one case someone decided to stop and wait for everyone else to go by first. :-sWell, what I really hate is when something of like kind happens in Wal-Mart. It happens. I...

    So Glad High School Is Over!!!!

    In high school, all the little cookie cutter girls (I called them this because they all looked the same, long straight hair, headband, jean jacket, too short for school skirt, flip flops.) would stand in a big group and just chatter away in between classes. I felt like...

    At first I thought it was a bit sad that the path round my local park is divided by a yellow line to allow people to walk round either way without *gasp* bumping into each other. Now I think differently. People stand in groups chatting - taking up the entire pathway forcing most...

    No Curtosey

    It's because people have no courtesy anymore. It does bug you when you are trying to get somewhere and the people blocking walkways to socialize only care about their selves. See anymore a lot of people seem to think they are way more important then others. Well we all put our...

    Must You?

    We're a swim family, so that's at least a meet every two weeks or so. And you know - sometimes 1200 kids even. It is natural to socialize, good even. But MUST you do it in the middle of the hallway, thee aisles, the stairs, in front of me when my kid is swimming? It seems like...

    If I Can, I Wait Or Go Another Way

    I'm unable to walk up to people. I try to wait and do other stuff somewhere else in the public place while waiting, or take a different path.
