Fellow U.K GLP'ers A Question For You - The Covid "Pavement Dodgers"
It's been going on from Day One and it appears to still be happening 10 months later even though we know "covids" a load of old bollocks . I'm sure you're aware of the freaks known as "pavement dodgers" (American readers 'pavements' are what you call 'sidewalks')

The usual m.o of these lunatics when they see another human approaching them on the same side of the street is to revert to one of these 4 actions :

1) Immediately cross the road as soon as they see you approaching
2) To throw themselves into the nearest bush or piece of foliage
3) To swerve around you as far as possible without getting knocked down by a car
4) To stand back and wait for you to pass & then they expect to be thanked for it


So fellow non-brainwashed Brits , are you still encountering the 'pavement dodgers' in your local area ??

Does my scone in mate ...

At first, I thought it was hilarious but that changed to blinding anger at the insanity going on around me.

Now I totally blank it. Safer that way.

Still fuckin depressing though

Wow , I thought it might be a uniquely British phenomenon , so it may be a global thing then ?!!? The level of brainwashing these sheep have swallowed is incredible . I had one see me approaching them last night (I never wear a muzzle inside or out) , and this thing had a ski mask on , a scarf round its face AND was wearing a plastic visor , and it STILL ran out in the middle of the road to get away from me !! I just pointed at it and laughed (although really I wanted to kick its arse)

Of course...... I often have to pull out the twigs and leaves jumping into bushes as the cars around me swerve all over the place.... the fear of developing Covid isnt good for the health old chap!!

I actually want to cause them physical harm , but then I remind myself that would be falling for the old "divide & conquer" tactics that are being used . Instead I don't even make eye contact , I'm sure more than a few are just doing it for attention anyway , so I refuse to even acknowledge their existence

Our development can get kind of confusing, so we are used to helping out drivers. They always end up in the cul de sac lost.

Anyway, I was getting my mail and saw a person parked looking lost. I approached the vehicle to help him out. As I got to about 8 feet, he reversed. Confused, I approached again, and he reversed again. I realized what was going on, so I just gave him a "you're insane" look and went home. I wanted to give him the finger, but he was old.

that's another prank i like playing , the "inching game" . You stand just close enough behind these muzzled morans to make them uncomfortable enough to shuffle forward a few inches . Then you wait 20 seconds and do it again , and they duly shuffle forward again . Repeat to the point of them losing it or fleeing the shop , it's like a mini-war of psychological attrition rockon

It is very noticeable the changes in behaviour and even more so in the older people....As OP said... the social interactions now happen even further apart.

My fear... Relationships will suffer in the long run... Meeting people to form relationships is one of those areas that will/is going to be a huge elephant in the room. There are some very real issues down the line with all of this.
IF YOU HAVE A FEVER DO NOT LOWER IT WITH MEDS.... A FEVER IS AN IMMUNE SYSTEM RESPONSE TO A PATHOGEN (VIRUS, BACTERIA ETC..) IT MEANS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS WORKING PROPERLY....DONT USE DRUGS TO LOWER YOUR TEMP.
