    Men have a tendency of knowing what they want & where to find it. Grab it & get out. Women tend to make it into a leisure activity. But worst of all are those that are walking along at a decent pace, then suddenly stop dead, right in front of you.
    Sexism.....this early in the morning. Keep believing what marketing is telling you.

    Re: Minor irritations

    Gender aside, some people display a talent or proclivity for essentially blocking the aisles or access to some shelves while they seemingly ponder the meaning of life (or whatever else they are thinking about). They also seemingly have a sixth sense and know just when to move to the left or right to further block access.

    I taught all of my children hand gestures for non-verbal signalling when outdoors, it prevented issues with blocked sidewalks and the like. I could shift them round town like a collie moves sheep.

    The problem-people are those who walk side by side but then won't notice any need to drop back into single file when approaching others. There's also what we in the UK call Street Furniture, every last bit of which should be scrapped by law and never allowed to return. We get A-frame adverts three feet high, chained to street signs or just free-standing, we get ill-positioned litter bins, dog bins, flower bins, fifty signposts where none would be a far better number, bicycle racks in which I have never yet seen a single bicycle that wasn't tied there as scrap disposal, all of it should be barred. And, ultimately, cars. And coffee vendors, peanut sellers singing inappropriate bits of Mary Poppins, advertising newspaper boxes, scaffolding and workmen digging up everything in sight.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    You can't use the word sidewalk and then explain "what we in the UK call Street Furniture".....it's a pavement.....OK ?

    Think you went a little over the top with banning lamp posts and cars though....................are you a bit anti social ?

    It made me think of the 2017 trailer for Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Re: Minor irritations

    One of my pet hates is people walking while looking at their phone oblivious to anything around them. On one occasion I was sitting in a lorry 8ft across 13 ft high in a pedestrian precinct (I was delivering to one of the shops) with the engine running when this bloke walked in to the front of it - OK that wasn't irritating it was funny but had I been a pedestrian he would have knocked me over
