While having coffee and laptop time with my dear friend Ingrid, she stated she had a ‘pedestrian faux pas’ moment that made her think of me.
While walking the dog on the sidewalk, jamming out to her ipod, she got that subconscious tingle that someone was giving her “the stink eye”. She turned and saw a cyclist coming towards her, with no way around her and the dog (aka the furbaby*).
At this point, I gasped and stated “I hate it when pedestrians hog up all the space!”, but then realized that it was unclear where she was standing… why couldn’t the cyclist get around her?
Tsk tsk, fellow cyclist! My friend, the pedestrian, was in the right, and you were in the wrong.
