With only five minutes for each passing period this year, it has become increasingly important for everyone to get to class in a timely manner.
Yet, many students continue to act as if we have an endless amount of time to rendezvous at the school.
One of the most annoying hallway behaviors is that of slow walking. It’s as if these slow walkers are oblivious to the fact that the rest of us are at least attempting to make it to class on time.
Instead of walking slowly, some people even opt to simply stand there and act as giant roadblocks.
Plus, some of these roadblocks are standing there swapping spit. There are times and places for affection, but the school hallway isn’t one of them.
While we appreciate the fact that you love each other, we don’t need to see physical proof.
We also appreciate the fact that you love music, but we don’t need to hear that either.
Kindergartners are constantly taught to use their inside voices, yet, it seems that many of our high school peers have forgotten their elementary skills.
It’s not everyone’s main priority to hear your personal conversations as we try to get to class.
Yelling and screaming random words and phrases as you walk down the hall isn’t just disrespectful and obnoxious, but is disruptive as well.
Speaking of disruptions, the overly-sensitive ‘gangstas’ that like to pick fights over any little thing are also an obnoxious, unnecessary disruption to our daily lives.
Plus, as we’re walking down the hallway, we’d prefer to not have to dodge texters-and-walkers, so please watch where you’re going.
As a school community, we should all work cooperatively and be respectful of each other.
Yet, it’s obvious that many of our peers have no hallway etiquette or respect for the rest of us.
