How do you walk the walk?


I had much better things to do with my day...

Unfortunately, I didn't do them. I did, however, decide to secretly scrutinize my fellow coworkers and the way they interacted while walking with me.

It was very interesting....

I led an orientation class today and part of the process is doing a tour.

As usual, everyone trailed behind me in an endless single file line.

WTF!?!

When it takes 5 minutes for everyone to catch up on each stop of the tour, I begin to wonder if these people need electric mobility carts. I don't walk that fast, people, speed it the fuck up!

On the opposite end of the spectrum is the fast walker. It's pretty obvious my short little legs can't keep up with you when your 3 strides ahead of me, why do you even bother with trying to have a conversation with me? If you have to yell over your shoulder as my retreating form becomes a dot on the horizon, you're walking to fast. I'm not going to bother trying to keep up with you as you could care less whether I do or not.

It was my walk with Nose Hair that surprised me the most. I've mentioned before that he is tall, he's got to be at least 6'3, but he matched my pace, stride for stride. He could have easily sped ahead of me leaving me in the dust, yet he did not.

He earned some brownie points today....

I now feel obligated to tell him the next time I see a cliff hanger dangling from the nose hair.

    That could be confusing, because many men have nose hairs.
His nose hairs have their own zip code....

    You know, I'm starting to get a good feeling about "Nosehairs", I think he might be your "one". Just promise me, if you start dating him, we can still refer to him as "Nosehairs".
He's not the one, he has a girlfriend. I just happen to be one of his first work friends after transferring to the area. You always tend to be a little more comfortable with the first work friend.... And, he will always be known as Nose Hairs. Lol

    Usually that's the best reason for allowing a woman to walk ahead.
Nope, loose fitting dress slacks and a mainly female class. Most of my orientation classes do this, they just don't have the fast paced retail walk down yet. It'll come.

    Why are you making that an obligation? You have a buddy who cares enough to walk at your pace, to listen to you. So why can't you just be a buddy enough to point out he's got a bat trying to get out of the cave, when he's got one?
I'll be honest, I was embarrassed to mention it. I couldn't find the right way/opportunity. Shame on me.

    I'm tall with long legs so I find myself constantly adjusting to the pace of the person/people I'm with. My thought is the people who don't even attempt to keep up are ones who really don't want to be there. I speak to university classes each year and deal with all kinds of students. You would think they would be grown up enough to pay attention and keep up, but there are always some who function at their own pace.
As someone who is taller, do you find it frustrating to have to slow your pace for someone who is shorter? My boss #1 is a prime example of the speed walker, and he will actually tell me to keep up.

    Wouldn't that technically be a "cleft" hanger?

    A truly caring co-worker would offer to braid that hair for him ....
I like that play on words!! Lol

Lol.... That would mean I was looking at his package. Probably not work appropriate.

    okay.. the ghost booger was actually a great idea... you can use it often... eventually he will start checking for boogers as soon as he see's you coming and you will never have to actually witness another one.
I agree, it was a good idea. I think I have the method to convey the message too.... I'm going to just hand him my tissue box.... the problem has been that I can't find a way to point it out.

    I match my gait to whoever is walking with me. If I get a little ahead it is to open doors or other civilities.
I match my gait as well, I feel it's only respectful. Most of us develop the fast-paced retail walk just as conditioning in our job so it's not like I'm lolly gagging around, I just have short legs.

    Uhm... Yeah. I mean... THAT, would obligate me. That's for sure. 👍😊
    So whatcha gonna do? I have an idea...
    Mention it to him even if he DOESN'T have one hanging. THAT way ; your duty is done, he'll forever feel obliged AND... ya don't actually, have to see those things hanging on.
    So.. what else is new? 🤔
Not a whole lot new..... I had a super busy day at work that kept me trapped in my office and stuck in a classroom format. Ugh...

When one door closes, another one opens. Or you can open the closed door. That's how doors work.
