    Is that why you voted leave?
    Yes totally because all our tourists come from the EU and nothing tangibly exists outside Europe.

    Just so you know it's actually correct to stand on the right hand side and allow faster travel on the left. So saying they should walk on the left is actually wrong...

    Yes especially when I'm walking home from college. There is always a group of people in front of me who walk so slow that the people behind me are complaining about how slow I am

    Point is people who obstruct everything behind them rather than in an orderly manner irritate me.

    I agree.

    The worst are the ones who suddenly lose all common sense and just stop where they are, look around confused, do all this for about 30 seconds and then try to come back the opposite way

    Right, so I just went on my lunch break and I wanted to go to Tesco to get some bits and bobs, but people were walking SO slowly!

    It may be just because I'm impatient when I need to get somewhere, but I am just curious as to whether anyone else understands my pain.

    Feel free to share experiences below
    If they don't have a reason to be walking slowly then yes. The worst ones are the two friends chatting and walking really slowly together blocking everyone. Or the plodders who also zig zag so you can't get past them.

    Ezio 'Platopus' Auditore :smug: (I realise if you've never played Assassin's Creed you won't understand that )

    I do try my best, but sometimes you've got traffic of people coming one way and you're stuck in the other lane
    I will probably have to ask my brother the meaning of that Assassins Creed reference when he comes home haha.

    Oh yeah, that's annoying. Just gotta fake confidence and march into the approaching tide!

    Absolutely! Sometimes it is beyond their control (mums with pushchairs, old people etc.) but it's still irritating . Then you have obese people who are not only blocking up the pavement, but also walking at a snail's pace. Then there are the people who choose to chat in a circle in the middle of the pavement, instead of choosing a cafe or somewhere else to continue their conversation.

    Oh, and the couples who choose to hold hands while walking on a narrow pavement. I'm happy for you and all that jazz but I've got places to be!

    Yes people who walk slowly irritate me as they tend to slow you down when you're in a hurry or need to be somewhere

    Too many people rushing everything. Ain't about that life. Gotta walk cool, gotta walk smooth, and that means walking slow. If I've got somewhere to be, I leave earlier or drive faster.

    I remember one time when I was walking out of a store in Times Square NY and this lady behind me cussed at me for walking to slow and I wasn't even walking slow. Don't ruin someone else's day just because you have a firecracker up your ass, -time management- leave earlier.
