This is one of two games I always used to play while using public transport (and thus walking to and from). The most memorable point was when I was nine months pregnant and heading down stairs at a railway station, leaning on the rail which I fricking needed because I have no depth perception and was hugely pregnant and couldn’t see my feet, and some old bloke was coming upstairs the other way, and just stopped dead in front of me. And told me to move out of his way. Arsehole. I was so shocked that I actually did it. I may have been rather loudly rude in response though.
The other game I used to play was what I called “Town Hall Space Invaders” which meant walking at my usual very fast pace from the bus stop down to Town Hall station, zipping around and overtaking slow walkers, at peak hour, and I won if I didn’t have to stop (for people who stop dead in front of you, arseholes like the above, to avoid a crash, etc etc).
Anyway yeah. I completely agree with the premise. Men really do expect you to part before them like the Red Sea in front of Moses. Fuck that shit.
