left – right – leftrightleftright

everyone has probably had the experience of walking down the sidewalk with someone coming directly towards them. you move a bit to the left – just as they do the same, so you move a bit to right – just as they do. this repeats several times and usually both parties laugh a bit as the barely avoid a collision at the last second.

my issue is that this happens to me several times a day and i’m quite sure that i’m testing the patience of a nation.

i’m sure this is based on my inner navigation that keeps pulling me to the right side of the sidewalk directly into the path of the kiwis who walk on the left. can’t explain why this is taking some time to sink in whilst i’ve had no problem with driving, but let’s hope i can get it right before i’m sent to sidewalk school.
