Default Why Do People Walk So Slow?

Okay this is frustrating. Why do people walk so damn slow? Or maybe it's because I walk fast, but it's almost as if people walk slowly on purpose. Sometimes I don't want to catch up to people so I end up standing still in one spot, waiting for them to get further ahead, but it takes so long for them to walk. And even when they're way ahead of me, I still overtake them when I'm walking normally, I'm not even trying to walk fast, I'm walking at a comfortable pace. Why the hell do people walk so slow?

I'm one of those slow walkers you hate. Just pass me up. I actually get anxiety when walking because I know some of the "fast walkers" are hating me thinking I'm a slow fat scumbag. I look at some of their faces when they pass me up and they have a pissed off look.

I just feel weird walking fast, and if feels unnatural to me. Maybe I have short legs. I'm not that tall 5'8. I'm also overweight so that might be another reason I walk slower.

I walk fast, I can't stand getting stuck behind someone taking half an hour to walk a ten minute walk. I probably do look annoyed when I'm walking.

I don't walk particularly fast, I walk at a normal rate and yet I always catch up to people. Sometimes there'll be situations when I don't want to catch up to somebody and I try so hard to slow down, so as to not catch up to them. But I end up catching up anyway. So I end up having to stop walking, and I stand there pretending to be on my phone while waiting for them to be a considerable distance away from me so as to not risk catching up to them.

I hate walking slow.

I also don't like when people ride up/down escalators at a standstill rather than take steps at the same time.

Yeah, it is annoying. Especially the ones that walk right in the middle of the sidewalk.

I get kind of dizzy easily when walking up stairs and I always wait for slow people to get a good bit ahead of me before walking up myself. I don't like to be right behind them. Also, I've noticed some men walk 2 steps at a time. Makes me sick to my stomach when I see that for some reason.

I tend to walk faster than most people cause I have long legs.

Very true. If you're going to walk at a negligible speed you might as well move yourself over to the far right side. Seriously. I'm sure though from other people's point of view I walk ridiculously fast like i'm in a hurry or something. But I'm really not. I just like to walk faster. This is probably because my legs are much longer than other people's

I don't really have long legs. My Dad walks even faster than I do, I think I got it from him. He doesn't have a car so we used to walk everywhere.

I can understand passing someone up (like how cars do when switching lanes), but I didn't realize it really infuriates people. More reason for me not to go out. I'm probably in everyone's way. Just a fat slow piece of trash.

I feel uncomfortable both ways, slow and fast. If I'm in front of people, I feel like they are talking about me while walking behind people makes me feel like a creep.

I have the same frustration. The worst is when the person in front of me is about to get on the escalator and they slow down to an absolutely ridiculous pace. Just get on the ****ing escalator, moron! They walk slower than the escalator itself is moving.

Oh jesus, you have no idea. Even today (since I stayed out for a while) I experienced this. In some other state or city maybe it's not so bad, but walking around in Manhattan, well...


And it's not so much the walking slow as it is not being able to walk in a straight line. Where people just drift over and block me from walking at my pace. Then if I wind up bumping into them, they have the nerve to look at me like I'M the *******. **** that. I'm not the one who isn't paying attention to where they're going (even without adding cellphones to the equation).

Women are the worst. I'm talking about women in New York City (you know, those types?), that is. I'm convinced they position themselves right in front of you and then slow down (they're already slower than most turtles to begin with). Then they do that sideways look on top of that, in order to make you come of as a creep or a stalker. Please, stop trying to flatter yourselves.


I could go on even more, but maybe I'll stop for now.

What I don't like is when someone is a little slow but walking just fast enough that it becomes awkward to pass them unless I walk faster than my normal pace. I'm then forced to either slow down or speed up so I'm not walking beside them for long if I pass.
