She Who Is Late

Valuable advice from cadhla...

In this post, cadhla shares a real-world learning experience with the rest of us:

If, upon going around a woman who has inexplicably stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, you find that a blonde woman who looks vaguely familiar but isn't ringing any immediate 'I know her' bells is walking purposefully towards you, you may want to consider swerving, rather than matching her purposeful stride with her own. Because while yes, most people will get out of your way if you walk towards them in a brisk and purposeful manner, and yes, sometimes it's fun to play chicken with the populace...

...your own reflection is the one pedestrian who won't swerve before you do.
