    Default Pavement Etiquette.

    When you're walking on a pavement that is only really big enough for one, unless you feel like brushing shoulders with a stranger, who should move onto the road? Is there an order of priority and do you stick to it, or do you just stand your ground and expect the other person to move? If you move, who would you move for?

    I always end up being the one that moves, surely there must be a time when I should get priority? Holding a child's hand seems to make no different, they don't seem to see her. The other day I had to pass a man that didn't move for us and said 'come on darling' as I did it. He looked straight at me, obviously thinking I was talking to him. It probably made it worse because I looked straight at him because he was looking straight at me, so I quickly looked down to show him that I had a child with me and don't go around calling strangers in the street darling.

    Stare straight ahead and don't make an attempt to move out of their way

    I would have thought he'd have moved for you, the ignorant swine

    Sometimes I move and sometimes I don't. It depends on who the other person is and what my mood is at the time.

    Of course I move for people, but if my tosspot detector goes off, maybe not
