Sounds like the cold that's been creeping around the dorms here. The cold itself knocks you asunder for a day or two, but the cough is epic. For the cough part, avoid meds with a cough suppressant as that prolongs it. You wanna drink loads of water, steam your lungs and sinuses out (hot shower, sauna, etc), and eat the spiciest food you can stand.

If its a small sidewalk where only one person can walk in one direction, I usually yield or step off the path regardless of who the other party is. I walk fast enough that any minimal delay is easily made up, and it's not worth the annoyance to try to bull through. But with people walking two or more abreast on a sidewalk not built for it, they get no quarter. I attempt to take up the minimum of space, and keep walking at my same pace.
