yep ... another "ted is irked today" thread.... so i've come to notice, that when i walk down the hallways here at work, people are just idiots, or clueless ... or clueless idiots. here's an example. imagine a hallway wide enough to accomodate three people side-by-side. three of them are walking abreast of eachother, coming my way. i'm essentially forced to go as close to my right-wall as possible so i don't collide with the one closest to me. now that i don't mind ... i'm simply trying to get by. but what *kills* me is that the person closest to me (who, btw, clearly sees me coming their way) barely scoots over -- it's like that person isn't willing to "step behind" their buddies ... even for a second. heaven forbid that person miss out on what the other two buddies are yapping about. imo, it would seem proper etiquette (and just plain freakin' courteous) to simply step behind for a sec, instead of forcing me to do the "shoulder-twist" thing. ugh, i've said it before and i'll say it again .... "the masses are asses!" note: i tried to be gender free in this bold blanket statement, because i've seen both women and men do this. arses i say! double note: heck, i even recently had a lady try to force her way through a doorway that i was already entering - she ended up hitting me with her lunch box. then she looked surprised when i gave her a stare.
