Why are people so completely unaware of their surroundings these days and just like on the roads, they have no consideration for others who are trying to get somewhere? This seems to be especially true in corridors and on public footpaths, but it also happens in places like supermarkets or basically anywhere that a person can walk.
I find it particularly irritating when walking down a corridor I encounter people walking two abreast when there is clearly no room for someone else to pass whether it be someone coming in the other direction or catching them up from behind. They're in their own little world oblivious to all around them, especially if the two are in deep conversation, but it's worse when you catch up with two people walking side by side, presumably because people generally don't pay attention to who is behind them.
try to be more aware of your surroundings...
I work in a busy hospital by day and as you can imagine there are corridors all over the place full of patients, doctors and visitors all trying to get from a to be as quickly as possible and this is made much more difficult when people waddle up the corridor blocking the way for everyone. This happens to me on an almost daily basis! A polite "excuse me please" is usually required to remove the obstruction so we can get on our way to our destination, however, I wish that it wasn't necessary to ask people to move out of the way all the time.
If you happen to be a corridor hog yourself spare a thought for others the next time you're in a hospital. Keep to the left (that's the usual protocol) and try to be more aware of your surroundings and in particular others who may be trying to get past.¬¬
