So whatever happened to the rule of "Keep to the right?" You ever notice more and more these days that people just wander around wherever they want to, even if it means plowing you under to do it?
I'm walking in the mall - keeping to the right like any sane human being - and all the while I'm being forced to dodge a steady stream of social defectives bearing down on me like cattle at feeding time. I mean, what am I supposed to do, Spidey-crawl up the wall to get out of their way? Your average mallway is a good fifty feet across, and these people all have to be walking on my side of it. But hey, you get out of my way because I'm obviously the center of the universe and all of creation revolves around me and my needs. Come on!
So now I just stop and stand there - it creates havoc, they can't comprehend it. What's he doing? Why is he just standing there not getting out of my way? Should I go around him? I don't know what to do.... And then another one comes up behind the first, then a third, fourth....
I've blocked an entire mallway with these clowns on several occasions - malls don't like me very much.
Anyway, it seems common courtesy is an endangered concept, like saying "thank you" when someone opens a door for you. I used to let it pass, but now I treat these folks to a "you're welcome" so dripping with sarcasm I now have to travel with my own dropcloth.
It doesn't do any good.
Maybe I should try kicking them in the crotch. A few of those and they'd sure as hell learn to keep to the right when they see me coming!
