Because it’s Friday, and I’m in the mood for something different, I’d like to talk about one of my biggest pet peeves.
Let me introduce you to….
The Slow Walker.
I seriously want to shove people who walk at the speed of a snail. Does that mean I have anger problems?!
I don’t consider myself an extremely fast walker. Definitely faster than most, but cannot stand people who just move so freaking slowly to their non-pressing engagements while I clearly am RIGHT behind them. Don’t they sense me walking up their ass? Wouldn’t they think to step ASIDE since I’m pretty much breathing fiery rage down their necks?!
I would say this happens to me at least once a day when I’m in the office. Usually when I’m on the way down to the kitchen / café on the second floor from where I sit on the third floor. Usually on the way back, when my stomach is rumbling and I’m now HANGRY because all I want to do is eat my lunch, but I CAN’T because I’m stuck behind the Guinness book’s slowest person in the world having a conversation about God knows what. Sorry co-workers, but you’ve GOT to pick up the pace. It does help to move a little…
Don’t even get me started on the mall. Or the grocery store. Or the airport. Don’t these people get my mental vibes that I’m considering injury by shopping bag and/or shopping cart and/or suitcase if they don’t hurry up or get out of the way!?
I also hate slow walkers that I mistakenly let cross the street while I’m driving.
I should not have to sit at a mock 10 minute red light while Slow McGee meanders across the road like they have all the time in the world! #instantregret.
What will it take to get these people moving? Should I yell “FIYAHH” at them next time? I seriously just don’t get it.
Anyone else share in my sidewalk rage?!
I’ll be back later on with some more randomness. Happy Friday!
