whether i am dabbling with being rude, or if pimply are
seeple peeyond the bail... er, if people are simply beyond
the pale.

like, the other day, i am gradually approaching two women,
old and middle-aged, on my usual walk. they are standing in
the middle of the sidewalk, talking. lots of hand talking

it is a very busy street. even stepping onto the curb is a
bit tense. the lady on the side of the street is holding a
leash on a fidgeting dog, that's hanging over the edge of
the curb. and they are standing right in front of an empty
driveway, and, c'mon, please? have a clue? move?

of course not. they pretend i do not exist. i have to
full-on stop walking and say "excuse me" before they make a
big fuss of oh my god how do we get out of the way this is
so complicated

it was kind of the cherry on top, from the three karens
trying to run me off the sidewalk with baby strollers. a
good 80% of the problem people are women. it's an awkward
statistic, so i wouldn't bring it up unless it was pretty
overwhelming, which it is.

i am happy to scoot around people. or, well, i was, but i
have to say i'm feeling a tad bullied and as such i find
myself increasingly brash and sassy

but i'm still not sure about it.

i can provide a larger context. i had been approaching them
along a long, straight stretch of road for two or three
minutes. they were vigorously hand-talking, but i saw some
darted glances at me; they knew i was winding down. there
was a space right next to them to move aside into; keep
talking. the street was full of cars going 45 and the lady's
dog was on the tree lawn, leaning over into the street. i am
not getting hit by a car for this shit.

mitigating circumstances, perhaps: they might have seen me
step out onto the road to surpass a lumbering 250lb
individual of indeterminate gender. there was space; there
was a break in traffic. but by the time i got to them, cars
were thick and fast; thanks to poor dog handling i've no
viable route around them.

i expect them to realize this and move aside, as they've
clearly seen me approach -- as above -- but, no, they
suddenly bore in on each other; do their best to shield
their conscious minds of me in the assumption they can keep
hogging the fucking sidewalk next to an empty driveway.

my only regret is that i did not have a ready store of fart
gas to dispel as i passed betwixt the indignant twits

solutions:

1. just don't ever leave the house again

2. assert dominance by shoving them on the street
(that's what the grandparents here in germany do, but they
don't wait 3 minutes for it)

3. get a cute baby / dog and throw it at them, cause thats
the language they understand

4. last thing i could think that would work is to become a
homeless person, so you will always have a 5 meter radius
vacuum around you

weren't polite and you had to say excuse me STILL it's no
fucking big fucking matter to get angry about

would be a laugh though,

the police would roll you in a carpet and jump up and down
on you so you do get bruises

spicy mood i fucking RELISH the thought of shoulder barging
the fucking lot of them ... they usually move
estate agents are the fucking worst for it... think they own
everything

walk straight into the cunts and afterwards go "oh, im
sorry" as if you didn't see them when you obviously did -
they never fucking do anything - people are weird.

people always take the path of least resistance and they
wont stop chopsing with their mates if they think we'll
happily hop into the gutter to allow them to do so. there is
a deeper tactical lesson here.

well i live about and i walk by there often. don't want to
start a thing, u noe. those hair ladies, nothing but time
and rumination

anyways, i could tell they were silo-ing [for lack of a
better phrase] and so i walked up to them, full stop. waited
a heavy moment. they know i am there. then i say
"excuse me"

not, like, "oh, excuse me." but more like "excuse me" like
the boss interrupting two gabby secretaries

they are flustered, that was part of the disorderly
withdrawal, but then, no, they're mostly annoyed, i was
supposed to walk into the path of an oncoming car, how dare
we be shooed, let's froth it up like it's this huge
complicated fuss, backup, no you, dog goes diagonal. i sigh
and wait

bump into someone, you gotta be careful with that. i'm a big
oaf, four inches taller than either at least, i can't push
over hair ladies and not get drawn and quartered

i have, however, mastered the purse tap. cluster of people
on the corner of the street, chatting, clogging it, cars
everywhere, always a lady with a giant handbag hanging out
like a sensor. walk by and hip check that bag, very solid,
careful tap, keep walking, she looks, you're gone, she looks
back, you're out of range, wat

make me feel like i'm trying to justify walking across main
roads without heed for traffic or something (which, by the
way, is a good way of finding out if your subconcious mind
has it in for you),
its a fucking pavement, you are walking, if they dont get
out of the way then fuck em.
Weird inversion of expected British/American behaviour going
on here.
