20 Thoughts Fast Walkers Have When Stuck Behind Slow Walkers

During my summer away from college, I forgot how much walking I do between going to my dorm, to class, to Starbucks to the library, so needless to say, I do a lot of walking in a day. As a self-proclaimed fast walker (and a girl who gets told to slow down by various friends), it's one of my biggest pet peeves to be behind a slow walker. Seriously, I just don't understand how people walk so slowly, and how I manage to get stuck behind these snails at least 3 times a day (and usually when I'm running late, just my luck). So here are 20 thoughts I have when I get stuck behind a slow walker.

1. Oh my god PLEASE walk faster. PLEASE.

2. Can you REALLY not move your legs any faster?

3. I don't think you could walk any slower if you tried to.

4. I have places to go, eye contact to avoid, people to not talk to. Don't want to miss out on any of that.

5. Come on, come on. Hey now! Hey! Look alive.

6. :(

7. Are your legs made of lead or something? Is that why your feet are shuffling so much?

8. I've seen a snail move faster. A snail. I'm not even kidding here. A snail.

9. Have you no sense of urgency?

10. Alright I can't take this anymore.

11. *Goes in for the pass.*

12. JK someone's coming in the other way on the sidewalk.

13. Ugh I'm never going to pass you. We will have a new president before I get to class, and it's all thanks to you.

14. Ok, Ok here we go. I'm finally gonna pass this turtle.

15. Oh NOW you decide to move over on the sidewalk? Are you TRYING to make me more annoyed?

16. I don't care anymore, I'm passing you, and if I body-check you in the process, so be it.

17. Oh good, you moved over to let me pass (FINALLY). Body-check not necessary.

18. YAS I can walk at my own pace now #blessed.

19. Open sidewalk, nothing can stop me now.

20. Dear god, no. Not another.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2015%2F09%2F03%2F635769025611261434-1808669760_200-15.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=1014&h=5702a878e07b20793621255355ac55a2a925c26341633cbe8da308dcefb878d6&size=980x&c=2769756205 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2015%252F09%252F03%252F635769025611261434-1808669760_200-15.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D1014%26h%3D5702a878e07b20793621255355ac55a2a925c26341633cbe8da308dcefb878d6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2769756205%22%7D" expand=1]

And then the process starts all over again until I get to class, the library, or wherever I'm going (probably Starbucks). Let's just hope that I won't be too late, and tomorrow is a more promising day, filled with walkers who are slightly less sloth-like.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
