Simple sidewalk etiquette

Posted By on Wed, Sep 12, 2018 at 5:04 PM

1. If you are walking in a group, don't spread out to take up the entire goddamn sidewalk—especially when you see someone walking toward you. It won't kill you to stop talking for 10 seconds and walk in single file to get out of the way so other people aren't forced off the sidewalk.
2. If you're walking alone, don't weave back and forth across the entire sidewalk. Someone might want to try to pass you and we can't do that if you keep meandering randomly from side to side in front of us. Unless you're absolutely fucking shitfaced, there's no reason for it. And speaking of passing...
3. Just like in a car, if someone behind you speeds up to pass you, don't speed up to match them. I know it's kind of a Nova Scotia tradition, but it's not a race. Some people are gonna walk faster than you. Get over it and let them walk by.
