    Default Walking on the Right Hand side

    Now, here's a silly observation I noticed.

    And I'm not sure if it's cause of the way I was raised up or if it's just something inherent about the US culture. You know when you're driving (at least in the US) you drive on the right hand side of the road? Or if you're in NYC you MUST stay to the right of the escalator or else you'll get ran over by somebody trying to pass you on the left side of the escalator?

    Well, some reason I see that trend not only on the roads, but also in areas such as crowded hallways, stairwells, sidewalks, ect. Now, I'm wondering if this is true everywhere in the US or if it's just something that's weird with me. Cause, since I was little (Junior High school) the teachers yelled at us "Walk on the Right side of the hallway or else you'll get detention!" So, now walking on the right side is a complete habit now.

    So... humor me with this ridiculous question: Which side of a sidewalk/hallway/staircase/ect do you walk on?

    Mostly it's only noticeable for things like escalators. Otherwise, I just weave through the crowd.

    I walk the path of least resistance... literally.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    I find its just lgical and much more convenient if you keep to the right. The odd thing is that I learned in school that you should walk to the left of the road when out in the cities/villages. There is of course some logic there to, but it feels kind of wrong when you're used to the opposite.

    I walk in the middle if it's big enough and it doesn't impede anyone else.

    I love Steal! <3

    Never walked in big enough crowds to notice anything like that.

    On a related note:
    The big boulder in front of all high schools that is painted and you write things on it(birthdays, holidays, dead student). Is that just a local thing(never been anywhere else to know), a national thing, or worldwide?

    Must be just a local thing, cause we didn't have it at our high school.

    Actually, I've traveled to a lot of different High Schools in New Jersey. (8 different ones; some that were nearby and others that were an hour-ish drive) and I didn't see any of that. At one High school I saw metal detectors and some walls that holes in em from fights... that was creepy.

    I walk where there's less people in the way. I think its a country thing, you know where people drive (either left or right side of the road).

    Thanks for silverwmoon for the purty sig :3
