Southern Side Walk Rage

I thought it was just me, having an occasional bad day. Or, always having too much on the schedule. However, I learned today, that nope, I have a problem.

According to researchers and the Wall Street Journal, the following behaviors are all classic signs of a “Sidewalk Rager.” Muttering (yeah), bumping into others on purpose to get them going (umm, maybe), or making a mean face at a person(s) when they don’t move along as fast as you would like (so?)

Well, the nerve! The researchers forgot to include in their study these helpful tactics. Saying loudly, “Seriously people,” as you move roughly around the slow pokes (I’m mean really!). Or, sighing loud enough you might be mistaken for a deflating hot air balloon (check & check).

I don’t know where in the hell those people are going or what they’re doing, but whatever it is, it won’t get done today! At the rate, some of them move, maybe never reach their destination.

Speaking of hot air, the researchers conclude if, I, we, you feel the need to tell others how fast they should be walking … well, we might have a problem. SERIOUSLY?! I don’t think so, and they’re 19,009 + Facebook members who beg to differ!

Apparently, I’m a Sidewalk Rager. Can’t help myself; I have places to go and people to see. So, Knock yourselves out Balloon heads, the rest of you are welcome to join my group as a member of the, “I Secretly Want to Punch Slow Walking People in the Back of the Head.”

One thought on “Southern Side Walk Rage

  1. Well, there is good news and bad. First the good. You are not alone. LOL As you found out there are a lot of ragers out there with places to go and things to do. Now the bad. Doesn't do a damn bit of good to rage. Remember you are spittin' in the wind. Keep a kleenex handy. But hang on, there is more good news…. in a few years you will finally reach a point where you through up your hands and say WTF. Not because you don't have places to go and things to do, not because you no longer want to hit people in the back of the head. Or ram their car with yours, but because you forgot where you were going, what you were going to do when you got there and which one you wanted to hit. 🙂 See there is something to look forward to. Wait a minute…. I lost my train of thought…..never mind.
