Rule #284: Slow moving pedestrians

If I stop my car to let you cross a parking lot or an intersection, have some respect and HUSTLE! You may not know this, but I'm kind of a big deal, and, ipso facto... I have places to be.


But that's not really the point. I'm talking about common courtesy. When someone holds a door open for you, you say "thank you." Likewise, when you're trying to cross the street and someone stops to let you cross, slowly sauntering your way along like you got nuthin' to do is like saying "thanks for holding the door, but F you! You owe it to me!



Come to think of it, this shouldn't just happen when someone let's you cross. Even if you have the right of way at a light, Shelf your sense of entitlement for a second and move it along!


In the new world, if someone is walking too slow and holding you up, you have the right to run them over!.... Alright, alright. Settle down. No running them over, but they will have to answer to the rule enforcer...

  1. I was under the impression the the little man that lights up at the intersection meant "walk", not "hurry up for this guy that's in a rush and should have left his house 5 minutes earlier"

    1. I think that what it boils down to is mutual respect should be given by both pedestrians and drivers. This should be the case in every aspect of our lives. Besides, I sure as hell don't want to mingle with Mr Buttersworth....do you?

    2. Ahhh, I see you're one of those people that updates your facebook status as you're crossing the road... "anonymous is crossing the street". We're talking about common courtesy. Show it and expect it!

  2. I agree and I'm a pedestrian not a driver. I do not drive and have taught my children to not dawdle while crossing. It is ignorant and selfish. I can only hope that my children who are now in their late teens still follow those rules.
