A call to action

I firmly believe that we should walk on the same side of a hall as we would drive on the road. It only makes sense to do that! Doing otherwise leads to significant confusion, close-call crashes, and instability in the marketplace AND the workplace. I don’t enjoy turning a corner only to find that someone is coming up on “my” side of the hallway, just a few feet away, forcing both of us to divert our paths in order to avert disaster. That’s just awkward. I don’t like it, and neither should you!

This a call to action! Rally your family, your friends, your coworkers, and strangers! Let’s put an end to wrong-side walking!

The next time you see someone walking on the wrong side of a hallway, stop them and say “Hey! No more wrong-side walking!”

I propose we continue our paths down the correct side of the hallway, playing chicken until THEY flinch! And if you happen to turn a corner to find someone on your side of the hall only a few feet away… STAND YOUR GROUND! Slap them! Push them! Step on their toes! Shake them until they understand, and yell: “NO MORE WRONG-SIDE WALKING!”

Society will improve from this.
