People who leave a store into a busy footpath without looking both ways... Then stopping on the window just by the door they just left.

 

 

 

 

Akin to that muppets that park out side there homes across the footpath. For me that means going back to the next available crossover the going along the road until the next crossover, bloody scary frown

People who wander down the pavement in wide groups taking up almost all the available width with precisely zero spatial awareness concerning the frustrated people behind them who want to get on with their days...and people who are walking along, decide to check their phones and instead of moving out of the pedestrian flow, they just stop dead in front of you...

You should get that chair from Johnny English...that would deal with that. IIRC it had missile capability!

Some people stop to chat and instead of staying on one side they "spread" across the path and won't move out of the way.

 

 

Just like the aisles of supermarkets.

 

 

Or in narrow spots in airports.

People that are unable carry a bag down the aisle of an aircraft (e.g. Q300) without smacking it into the shoulders of passengers in aisle seats.  Or fail to consider the arc of their bag while swinging it to put in the overhead locker.

 

Or people who use an app at the boarding kiosk but don't have it available for inspection by the cabin crew on boarding the actual aircraft, and then take about 7 years to unlock their phone, open the app and find the correct flight.  Meanwhile other people are standing on the external boarding ramp in the rain.

 

I can see why rich people have their own aircraft.

even worse when they do it walking down roads at shopping malls /supermarkets etc.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

The fact that my 2016 Sony Bravia TV does not support Bluetooth headphones!

 



 

Get a Bluetooth->audio adapter e.g. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2017-New-High-Quality-Multi-Point-2-in-1-Bluetooth-Transmitter-bluetooth-Receiver-Wireless-A2DP-3/32803555240.html. PLug into headphones jack and USB port on TV. Problem solved.

Airport terminal layouts where you have to walk through the (cluttered) duty free shop, to get to your gate. 

 

Airport terminal layouts where you must walk a long convoluted path past acres of shops that is ten times longer than the straight line distance.

Todays NZ herald "breaking news"..... an report on a car accident that occurred 12 YEARS ago!

 

 

I do not think whoever runs  the Herald (a group of 12 year olds in someone's Dad's shed by the look of it) actually understands the correct use of the term "News" much less "Breaking News"!

 

 

No no, they are definitely breaking the news.
It's very much broken unfortunately.

When the irritation of the long walks becomes unbearable, you'll be offered an "express lane" direct from check-in to gate, for which you'll be asked to pay.

 

You're the product being sold to the shop owners, who in return pay exorbitant rents to the airport owner. No different than food stalls at sports grounds.

People who are incapable of walking in a straight line as they meander from left to right like some F1 driver trying to stop the person behind passing.

People who stand in the doorway of the train (or fail to move down the carriage) when there are another 20 people behind them trying to get on - this is the express service to Wellington.  There's no need....

 

People... generally...
