    OK - not iPods specifically, but any portable music player.

    OK - not actually about the players, but of the clueless fu@*#rs walking/skating/riding down the path plugged into the things and acting erratically.

    I've had at least 3 close calls with people oblivious to my multiple "on your left" calls when approaching them from behind. Yesterday was a skateboarder riding right in the *middle* of the path. I ended up hollering "on your left" three times, the last of which was when I was a foot away from him.

    And the greasy little bahstid had the gall to get indignant.

    Clueless fu#*%rs.

    :mumble:

    it's simple.... smack into them.. then explain to them afterwards that they must not have heard you saying you were going to run into them

    No, but some guy at the gym yesteday was asking me for a spot on the bench press but I didn't hear him on account of my iPod. He had to tap me on the shoulder. :p I obliged.

    Hitting the kids is natural selection, don't you know that?

    I've given up trying to warn people...only about one in five people will hear my bell/verbal warning and when they do, they step into a worse position than they already were. So much ig-nant ass bait on the pathways... :mumble:
