Slow Walkers

Slow, adj. 1. not quick or clever in understanding; dull; obutse 2. taking a longer time than is expected or usual 3. marked by low speed, etc.; not fast 4. making speed difficult 5. lacking in energy; sluggish- Webster’s New World Dictionary

Have you ever heard of the Facebook group, “I Secretly Want to Punch Slow Walking People in the Back of the Head?” The name of it is a little extreme, but today for the first time, I wanted to join this group. With over 1 million members, it seems that I am not the only person who feels this way.

I have always despised slow walkers; especially in the winter. Just because you lack a destination, doesn’t mean that others don’t. There are such things called classes, which start at specific times. So break up your massive, six person, sidewalk hogging group, and move over!

Here’s the link if you also feel enraged:

While I think it is perfectably acceptable to walk slowly, enjoy the scenery, or whatever, it should not be done at the expense of other people. people's lack of consideration for others is incredibly frustrating, especially when they make no apologies for it. Take the grocery store on a busy Saturday afternoon, for example. Two old friends meet up and completely block the aisle with their grocery carts and do not even notice the other customers on either side of them who wish to get by. When politely asked to clear the way, they look at you like you are from another planet. These people drive me crazy!!!!!!
