Amazing post!

The thing I hate the most is when people stop dead in their tracks in the middle of the pavement. Similar to people who stop at the bottom of an escalator.  >:( Move!!!!

YES!!!!  Man, I have such walking road rage :P

My favorite is the "oh so in love" couple who must hold hands in spite of the sidewalk being only wide enough for two. 

oops.  :-\\\\

I just figured out how to make it way easier...I look everyone in the eye and smile..this temporarily stuns them and I can usually get around them...if this doesn't work I just step off the pavement and walk in the road till I pass them...and yes I know that old people have the right of way for everything...

I lived about 10 blocks from my vet, so the day I was carrying my giant howling cat (in his carrier) down the street, everyone either stopped to see what was making such a racket or got out of my way, lest the howling beast attack them! 

Sadly, he's 22lbs, so it's just not practical to bring him everywhere, just to ease my walk.

 :P

My favorite is the "oh so in love" couple who must hold hands in spite of the sidewalk being only wide enough for two.  I'm tempted to walk straight through their arms, breaking them apart like in the "Red Rover" game from my childhood.  But I don't.  I step into the street and walk around them instead.

I hate them too! We always walk single-file when it's crowded and busy. But sometimes I can't help think that if DH really loved me, he wouldn't mind pissing off other pedestrians.  :P

Yesterday, there was a group of about 5 tourists standing directly in front of the door of Boots, just standing around and talking.

Hello? A door usually means that people want to walk in and out.

I think you should send that in to the "Love Is..." cartoonist. ;D

i said 'oops' earlier, but honestly?  I don't give a shite.
I make enough exceptions and allowances for other people, and inconvenience myself for others so often in my daily life, that when I'm with H... it's like F*CK you... it's your problem, not mine, for a change.

Like QG, we are guilty of the hand hold thing.  But we try to keep aware of when people want to pass.  But I sort of agree with QG.  My pavement/shops/door holding karma is probably good enough that we could probably body check a few old ladies pushing prams without going into the negative.

I mean if I am meant to figure out how to get out of a corner shop when two teenage mothers push their gigantic prams into the shop, then people can make it known they need to get by if we don't notice them.
