The Rules of Walking….. really….

I feel I must go over the rules of walking down a path, sidewalk, boardwalk, etc…

This past weekend, Mark and I walked down on the beach trail on Saturday and down at the harbor on Sunday.  

Don’t you find it interesting how people walk?  You know what I’m talking about…. the people who hog the path, the walkway hoggers!  The people who are walking on your side of the path and don’t move over when it’s time for you to pass each other.

Well frankly, I get tired of being the one to move and I’ve stopped.  Dip the shoulder and take them out is what I say!   Ha Ha Ha 🙂   I’ve only hit a few of them in the arm… you know, with my arm.  I didn’t make them fall over or anything.

Here are a few examples:

This couple is walking fine.  They are using “their” side of the walkway.

Now look at this group of girls walking. See the girl in the green jacket?  She’s walking on the line and clearly the girl in the black shirt is in violation of walking on MY side!  If she didn’t move over, I would have no choice but to dip the shoulder and take her out…. just kidding…. well kinda 🙂

 Now, here is something you always come across:  The dog walker. Actually in my walking experience, dogs usually get over on their side. I think they have good pathway etiquette.

When you get behind someone going too slow for you, you must pick up the pace and pass them.  The couple below …. they are on a very narrow walkway.  You would have to say “excuse me” and see if one of them would move over, or you would have to walk in the grass/dirt area. This man has grey hair… don’t worry I’m nice to older people…. sometimes… depends on a lot of things… ha ha ha

So… that’s about it… the rules of the walkway, sidewalk, boardwalk, any name you call it….

I hope this has been informative and helpful. Now every time you go for a walk, you’ll think about me.

Now it’s time for a joke!
Two blondes were walking down the street. One noticed a compact on the sidewalk and leaned down to pick it up. She opened it, looked in the mirror, and said, “Hmmm, this person looks familiar.” “Let me look.” said the other one. So she handed her the compact.The second blonde looked in the mirror then turned to the first one.” You dumbass — that’s ME!
