Speaking of Ross over at Strategize, he got me thinking with this post on being self-aware in public; think about the following:
- person or group of people will always get as close to an exit (top of stairs, bottom of stairs, top of escalator, bottom of escalator, etc.) and stop.
- People that rush on to an elevator when it arrives at a floor without waiting for people that are on it to get off.
- People that walk next to each other on a sidewalk, causing other people to have to step out of their way.
- People that hold things in their hands (i.e., skis, umbrellas, etc.) and spin around with them while conversing in a crowd.
- People that stop in the middle of a moving crowd to stick their finger in the air and point at things.
Those things are annoying aren't they? But I bet we all do some of them, perhaps more frequently than we would like to admit.
I apologise to the people at the bottom of the escalator in the shopping centre today....
