Runners Annoy meWatch
I was on a canal walking minding my own business when this person comes running behind me "EXXXXCUUUSSSEEE MEEEEEEE"
I stop turn to the hedge and she runs past without one thank you.
Normally I just Ignore them and carry on walking.
Who are they to disturb my walk, I have a right to walk. She should slow to a walking speed and walk around me like most normal people do.
I'm going back to ignoring people.
When I stayed in asia, there was absolutely no bell ringing from pedal bikes that had to ride on footpath, they'd usually ride around you or slow down. Of course if you're in the cycle designated path then they would ring a bell. But guess what, there was no cycle path at one place underneath a covered shopping area and low and behold it's a girl from uk ringing her bell behind all the people walking and going about their normal day.
So annoying mainly when they dont say thank you and when they think they are in the right and have to push you out of the way when they should be on the road or walking with the bike.
Alternatively you could just let them pass and get on with your day? It's not really that much of an inconvenience? Ignoring people on the basis that 'this one time a runner didn't say thank you when you moved out of the way' is silly and rude.
It's not just one thing it's many things. The way that it was said. There's enough space to walk past me. People shouldn't be forced out of their way. I'm not forcing them out of their way if they're coming at speed towards me from behind
