Why is that some people manage to take up the whole width of the pavement even though they (the people) are not particularly large?

And why do people walk double file down busy roads, forcing others into the road. Also why don't people feel the need to stand in shop doorways chatting to people they know. Basic consideration for others costs nothing, just an FYI I'm quite a large chap, when I see people blocking in this way I'll make a point of clipping you as I walk past, if you complain I'll point out 1. It was an accident 2. If you weren't blocking the path it wouldn't of happened. Karma is a bitch.

It always amazes me that some folk walk right on the actual kerbstone, whilst going the same way as the traffic. Almost as if they want a wallop from a wing mirror in their back.

I saw someone do a pirouette on the curb once. Broad day light and for no apparent reason. It was on a visit to Brighton. I won't go there again

I do really think that people (women) with prams or buggies should be forced by law to have indicators fitted on their shoulders and not be allowed to say 'HIiiieeee' to anyone near any doorway.

Yes, of course pavements need to be wider to make sure cyclists, all wearing helmets so they don't hurt themselves, have room to ride on. I'm sure a lot of them are probably 'creatives' or 'artists' of some kind.

What really annoys me are the people (all right, always men!) who wait in shop doorways, see you approaching at a reasonably fast pace and, just as you are about to pass them, step out in front of you and continue at the slowest amble they can manage.

Clifford - you have a massive chip on your shoulder.
That's what's causing any blockages on pavements.

Troll Hunter - I was referring to Clifford's on-going contempt shown towards people who make and imagine new things.
The pavements are narrow because most of them were built before the motor car was created - sorry, invented.

And I was referring - and the quotation marks should have been a clue - to people who pose as making and imagining 'new things' but churn out the same untalented and derivative garbage, if they do anything at all other than talk about their 'work in progress'.

Pavements are fine, it's the selfish coffee shops that cause the restrictions. I'd like to know why the council don't stop them from spreading out all over the place.
