I saw it comming. For some reason, today, it truly pissed me off, so I just bore down and ran into the guy darn near knocking him down. They yelled "Hey watch it!". I was so angry I told them to "F*ck off, don't hog the d*mned walkway". I had just had it! I'm tired of being pushed around. Arrogant little snots!
Usually, I will simply get off the sidewalk and let them go by, but not today. I guess I just got tired of the rudeness and responded in like kind. It's not been a good morning. But somehow, I got pervese pleasure out of pushing back for once!
today at college, there was an area-wide high school math contest. There was a clump of the high schoolers walking down the sidewalk and I plowed right through one - purposely not getting off the sidewalk. I said the first word though... I just said "watch out, buddy." That was that and we walked on... i got a dirty look by the back of the clump but they didint say anything to me about it.
The next sidewalk issue I had today was two poeple standing on the sidewalk to talk. They took up the whole sidewalk so I walked right between them. They said something about being rude to which I responded "sidewalks are for walking".
The last one (actually inside the building)... It is one of those where you are 1:1 approaching someone and you cant figure out whether to pass on the right or left... We almost collided b/c he was set on going to the same side. We got close enough that I kinda stuck out my hand and veered him on the to left of me... we both kinda smiled/chuckled and i said "in america, we pass on the right, buddy"
