Rules of The Sidewalk-NYC

Jump to last reply

I really annoyed at my fellow NY'ers-so here, once again, are the Rules of The Sidewalk:

Rules of the Sidewalk

For NY’ers and Tourists

•WALK TO THE RIGHT, even if you are English or a leftist.
•Electronic device users-take one pod out of your ear and place it up your butt so you will have stereo. WATCH WHERE YOU ARE WALKING!
•Do not stop short.
•Do not do pirouettes in the middle of the street when lost.
•Do not walk five across the street as if you are playing Ringo Leevio or Red Rover, Red Rover let Fred Come Over.
•Drink your coffee at the coffee shop. The street is not a cocktail party or your cubicle, so do not hold your drink in front of you.

Cell-ibites
•SHUT UP!!!. Now we know publicly how petty and inane you are privately.
•Do not dial the phone as you walk. Stand by the curb like dog at a fire hydrant.
•Do not pace the street, you are not home in your jammies and slippers.
•Watch where you are going. You are on the phone, not us.

Just NY’ers
•Do not run down the street between the walkers
•Do not ride your bike down the street. I know bikers think they are elevated live forms but pedestrians may disagree.
•Sunday fathers-do not use your child’s stroller as a battering ram. If you are mad that you are divorced or stuck with the kids, take it on yourself not us.
•Dog walkers-try not to have the entire 20 foot lead extend across the sidewalk. Someone is going to step on your Chihuahua.

Tourists
•Look at the map either at the curb or next to a building not on a corner, the middle of the street, by garbage cans already blocking the street, or on the subway steps.
•If you must window shop do it by the windows and not from the middle of the sidewalk with binoculars.
•Jay-walking is a NYC sport. If you are going to wait for a light, get out of the way of those who want to break the law.
•If you are going to look up assign a designated seeing-eye tourist so others can pass.

Thank you and have a nice day
