Step Aside!

Posted on Thu, Sep 22, 2011 at 2:41 PM

To the smokers pushed out on the street to have a puff, please step back so pedestrians don't have to step around you and/or breath the smoke from your cancer sticks. Your habit is disgusting and we don't all have to partake in it.

To the selfish rude obnoxious people who insist on walking down the street while texting, shove the hand held device back in your pocket (or somewhere else where the sun doesn't shine) and focus on what's around you (instead of the nonsense bullshit you feel is important but really is not).

To the panhandlers, simply go away. I'm not going to give my spare change to someone who is dressed better than I am or who wishes me a "good day"! Seriously, go get a job.

To the people waiting for the bus (and I'm one of them), you don't need or have the right to block the whole sidewalk for pedestrians passing by. If you are waiting for a bus, line up like the rest of the people... you don't need to stand a centimetre away from the curb.

Finally, to the cyclists. The law says if you do take your bike on the sidewalk, you have to walk it, not ride on one peddle going down the hills. If you want to ride your bike, fine, I applaud you, but please don't run people down. Have the common courtesy not to scare the crap out of pedestrians as you pass by. —Pedestrian Sick of Morons
