February Letter | #3: keep it to one side

Dear Pedestrians,

Please check to see if anyone is walking behind you before you inexplicably stop in the middle of the pathway. Don’t act all surprised when we almost collide – YOU CAUSED IT. And don’t accept MY apology either. I’m being polite, but you should really accept the you were at fault. Don’t just say that it’s alright when again, you foolishly stopped. It’s just rude.

See, in all of the drama and overthinking, you have taught me an important lesson and reinforced the ones that I never forget. I’m going to list them here as a handy reminder for myself.

I was young when we became friends, and perhaps a bit naive. Despite my outer cynicism, inside I was just like anyone else. I wanted people to respect me and I them. Back then I was extremely forthcoming with my opinions, the way teenagers sometimes are. I probably made it clear that you ANNOYED THE HECK OUT OF ME. And I’m at least sorry for that. I’ve learnt some tact now. Still, despite the annoyance, I was happy to remain friends.
