Pick a side, either side
Since it is a sea day and I am not presently on line to complain directly you are just going to have to put up with a remote diatribe. Or tolerate it, or delete it. Up to you.
I don’t know what it is with people, but they always and everywhere insist on walking down the middle of anything. Pick a location – stairway, corridor, escaltor, hallway – it doesn’t matter how wide or where it is located. There is this nasty tendency to take one’s half (or more) right out of the center.
Obviously this bothers me. It might have something to do with the fact that I move faster than most people around me. Or perhaps it is because I think it is rude to block the way for others. Acknowledging the fact that it is important on a ship for people to use the stairs for exercise rather than the elevators for weight gain I still get frustrated.
What is so hard about going to the left or right? Pick your side depending on your home country of origin; I really don’t care which side you chose. But to crawl up the stairs or down a corridor for five minutes – a journey that would have taken me fifteen seconds at the most – and I get frustrated.
But then it really doesn’t matter does it? I can get exercise in the fitness center or jumping to conclusions. I could use a stairstepper rather than walking up and down the stairs. I could push the young and stupid out of the way…
Oh, wait a minute – I am upset by the lack of other people’s manners. Looks like I need to go and find mine!
