I have one of these moments almost everyday. Today, it was because I watched the “Hot Problems” video.
That weird moment when you come home in the middle of the night and the only light on is the one with your cat sitting under it, on a chair, like an evil genius.
Awesome sketch by Mitchell and Webb, even if it could be taken offensively. I just wish the quality was better.
An Easily Fixable Pet Peeve
One of my serious pet peeves is people who do not walk on the right side of the sidewalk. This is a principle we all learned in elementary school. Remember your grade 3 teacher yelling down the hall for everyone to stick to the right as your class single-filed towards the gym for an assembly. Shouldn’t this still apply in everyday life?
I get annoyed when I have to swerve to either side of the sidewalk because every person walking the opposite way is doing so on different sides of the sidewalk. There is a precedent and it’s to walk on the RIGHT side. It’s only polite and no different than driving on the freeway. Slow people, or if there’s no one else on the highway, stick to the right. If you are in a hurry and there are multiple people on the sidewalk, pass on the left.
See your hands. Hold them up. One of them makes an “L” shape, the other one doesn’t. The “L” stands for “left”. Walk on the side of the sidewalk using your hand that doesn’t make an “L” as a guide, the Right side. It’s called the “right” side because it’s the “right side”, not the “wrong side”. I’ll make an exception for blind people, because they have no way of knowing which side of the sidewalk they are walking on and avoiding puddles because it is fair to sacrifice the rules of society to avoid discomfort, but everyone else should know better.
This is something that makes me angry because everything will move much more smoothly if we adhere to this simple rule: Stick to the Right side of the Sidewalk.
