Have you ever been in such a hurry that you just wish and pray for a convient journey to wherever it is you need to go?
I’m a last minute girl and usually don’t give myself enough time to complete my journey with time to spare, I cut it closer than a male model shave his beard. My pet peeve is the pavement hoggers, I just think to myself why me? Why does this have to happen to me?- in all fairness I should probably leave at a earlier time because I know this will happen, it’s inevitable. However, it doesn’t mean I’m any less annoyed.
This morning, hectically charging down the pavement like a manic monster but feeling quite chill in myself, I had a good breakfast, I liked my outfit, the sun was gratifying… It looked as though I was going to have a good day! Oh boy, was I wrong? Of course. I feel as though I was playing chicken with everyone on the pavement.
Before I continue, let me provide 4 criteria for the pavement hogger…
- You cannot walk in a straight line and you swerve everywhere
- You deliberately stand in the middle of the pavement
- You excess baggage is just added obstacles
- You walk slow and undirected
There is probably a more concise criteria but these are mine. I just wanted to get to sixth form, and I played chicken with about 1000000 people, I even ended up walking in the road at one point whilst being laughed at because I backed down from the rodeo stand off.
Sometimes I just wish I had one of these bad boys… You’d move out the way then wouldn’t you!
It’s not even limited to pavements, school corridors are a mosh pit without the music and drunk people. Honestly, if I had it my way I’d plough you all out the way and I may never be late again. This is just one of my pet peeves I thought about sharing. If you are a pavement hogger don’t take offence, if you’re someone who shares in this horror just know I feel your pain!
One day, I might be a pavement hogger and swing all my bags about, walking as if I am on a spiral maze and slightly intoxicated making it mission impossible for others to get past me… Have a taste of your own medicine.
