Sidewalk Etiquette 101

As I walk the busy streets of downtown Chicago, everyday I encounter someone who is oblivious to the sidewalk etiquette. One would think nike air max thea that everyone knows how to share a sidewalk, but they don They start, stop, turn and crisscross the sidewalk like unaware they are causing a sidewalk jam. The unofficial guideline is that sidewalk traffic mirrors lane traffic. Look at the traffic lane nearest you. If Northbound traffic is on the right, you should be on the right. Move to the right and don meander from side to side, walk in a straight line. Sure it nice to walk with your friends, but you can hog entire sidewalk. The only exception is when you are traveling with small children or someone you need to protect on both sid nik nike air max thea e air max thea es.

Practise this at home first until you know how it looks and feels, then make sure you nike ai nike air max thea r max thea remember to do it before saying, “Cheese”.

4 After applying lipstick, stick your index finger in your mouth up to the second knuckle, then draw it out slowly, (this is best done in private, as if there is eye contact, you may give the wrong impression to any fellas who happen to be passing by). All the lippy that was headed for your teeth will come out on your finger. Clean lippy off digit and you’re set.

5 Hold your arms away from your body to avo nike air max thea id the Christmas ham upper arm effect. The best way is to put your hands casually on your hips then slide them down to your upper thigh (so you don’t look like a knitwear catalogue model).
