Pavement rage

I get pavement rage. This is a bit like road rage, but (you guessed it) on the pavement. It is caused by people, not who just walk slower than me (I admit I often walk quickly), but people who walk it a stupidly slow pace (like a quarter of my pace) and take up the whole pavement doing this.

I am not alone. The Facebook group 'I Secretly Want To Punch Slow Walking People In The Back Of The Head' has nearly 1 million members.

Edinburgh has a plan - the city council hopes to install a lane system on pavements. Read the full article here.

An interesting idea. But the bit that really caught my eye was that Nurofen, the painkiller company, did a survey about being irritated by crowded streets. How delightfully random.
