You have six minutes to get to your next class. As you make your way through the already crowded hallway, you encounter one of the worst types of walker known to student; the texter. These people are the ones who either a) can’t text and walk at the same time or b) walk slower than a turtle as they type on their phones.

I don’t have a huge prob­lem with texting while walk as long as YOU CAN KEEP UP WITH THE CROWD! I’m sorry but traveling from 3rd floor south to 3rd floor main building is already quite a journey and you being all up on your cellphone just makes it a whole bunch harder for me to get to where I’m going.

The only thing I can think of that would remotely help with this situation is if you are going to text while in the hallway, try to either keep up with the pace or if you can’t do that, move to the side of the hallway and text your heart away. You don’t neces­sarily have to stop, but mov­ing out of the way of main traffic in the hallways, helps immensely.

And same thing with talk­ing in the hallways. People always clump up in little clusters and talk, blocking the way for people who actually KNOW how to walk and talk at the same time. I mean seri­ously, is it hard to walk and talk at the same time. Why do people find it necessary to just stand there?! Some people ac­tually like to make it to class on time, unlike you others who could care less.

You may have classes all on the same floor, or in the same building. But just an FYI, there are people who have to go from 4th floor main building ALL the way to 3rd or 2nd floor south. You try doing that and making it on time with all the blockades and stuff. Six minutes is just not enough time to screw around people!

So, the main point we’re trying to prove here; stop causing blockages in the hallways! It’s terrible. You just have to remember that the whole school doesn’t revolve around you and we don’t all have to stop for you to talk to someone or stop walking to text someone real quick and walk again. Learn how to walk and talk/text. It’s not that hard.
