Worst to me is walking in the main doors at The Bellagio, the entire area most just loose their minds, sense of direction and in some weird state of awe.



Now that I think of it the same problem exists with metal detectors, I have ranted before on it. People take one step through and STOP, as if they slid to another dimension. When I am working a courthouse I see it over and over and the people look like the same type who will wear a fanny-pack and tie up the sidewalks in Vegas.

I'd like to add to the list people who don't walk on the right side of a hallway. The only allowable exception should be to pass slow moving traffic. In other words, the rules should be the same as driving on a two-lane road.

In all fairness, it is probably expected to walk on the left in Australia and New Zealand, which I probably forgot to do lots of times on my last trip.

Yes WALLK ON THE RIGHT. I'm always bitching about this. When an accidental bump happens and someone gives me the look or gets upset. I will say, "what side of the road do you drive on?
They usually realize that's logical and move to the right.

The worst are people who run in the elevator while you are trying to exit.

My wife who is otherwise a sweet and wonderful woman drives me crazy with this one. No matter what we are doing or where we are going; if she's never been there before, the minute we enter through the main doors of anywhere... she stops and looks around. I mean half a step through the door. I've seen her stop a line of tourist blocks long with her gawking. I tell her move in more or step left or right so other people can come in/out. But it's like she's in a daze or something. I swear she blocked the doors to St Peters in the Vatican all by herself once. Kept a thousand people waiting for that 10 or 15 seconds while she went ohhhh.... I've mentioned it to her dozens of times and now we laugh about it...but she still does it. Also she had NO idea how to get anywhere if I'm driving. Doesn't matter if we've been there 100 times. She doesn't know how to get there unless she drives there herself.

On a somewhat related note. I have a theory that women navigate different then men. Most if not all the men I know, know the name of the road they are on/are going to be turning on. The route # and the road name is it has one. Most women I know seem to navigate by landmarks. Turn right at the gas station they will say, or it's the first left after the big blue house. Ask the name of the road...they don't know. Drives me nuts too.

Thus ends my sexist rant.

Not sexist at all, it is the case. Studies have been done about it. I try to avoid asking women for directions as they are terrible at it. Once I asked how to find a place I needed to make a delivery to. The girl had no idea where it was. Now, let me state that in the smaller town she was in this place would have been well-known. She had no idea. As I pulled the car out I saw it was confusing the GPS because it was in an industrial park RIGHT BEHIND WHERE SHE WORKED!

Call me sexist if you like, but women and directions do not mix.

"Go down to where that huge oak tree used to be before it burned down and take a left. Then take another left a quarter mile before you get to the old Johnson house. After that, you take a right just before where the railroad tracks used to run through there."

I just got off the elevator on my hotel floor. When the door opened, a lady says "oops I'm so sorry" BEFORE she proceeds to barge into the elevator with her luggage before I can get out. Why would you apologize for something you haven't done yet and then proceed to do it anyway?

I said earlier, that's my wife exactly. A GPS is
her salvation now. She doesn't pay attention
to her surroundings is the problem and gets
lost easily. What takes me 5 min in Walmart,
takes her 45. She wanders around in a daze,
like she's never been in a store before.

I made the mistake of going to the mall with
her and her sister 10 years ago and still haven't
gotten over it. We went for a specific thing, and
3 hours later we had bought nothing. I really
believe they forgot what we were there for.
