Just a friendly note to anyone shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street, Picadilly Circus, Covent Garden, Bluewater, Brent Cross, or any other extremely crowded shopping area at holiday time: it is NOT acceptable to

  • Walk out of a store while engaging in animated conversation with a friend
  • Back away from a kiosk on the street
  • Text while you’re walking
  • Decide you’re lost and stop in the middle of the pavement to discuss where you should be going

or any other manoeuvre that otherwise blocks pedestrian traffic, cuts hurrying people off and makes them trip over you. It’s antisocial. No one likes shopping in these places during the holidays because they’re already too crowded. Your contribution to the problem is not appreciated.

The holidays are supposed to be about loving your fellow man and living in peace and all that jazz, but I tell you – they just make me angry at all the stupid and antisocial people out there. :P Bleh.
