Today I was walking to work.
I always walk on the right side of the sidwalk. It’s some unwritten universal rule.
All of a sudden,
A STAMPEDE of people come out of a subway opening.
Now, I’m a good . . . block away. But the first person out walks on their left (my right). They’re coming at me — and all of them are following this lone, estranged walker. In a herd.
They walk RIGHT INTO ME. One after the other. Bam bam bam.
Ridiculous. This is one reason why I hate city life, but this also makes me question people’s intelligence. Oh, common man.
The moral of the story: Follow the leader isn’t always the best option. Go off the beaten path and maybe you’ll find a more sensible option.
