Pick a side, people!

I had a few expectations about the place when I came to England, one of which being that traffic would keep to the left. On the road, this seems to work fine. Cars, bikes, scooters, they’re all on the left. The sidewalks are a different matter–there seems to be no rule at all! People are all over the place. I’m constantly weaving from one side of the walk to the other when I’m walking through town. What gives, people? At first I tried to stay to the left anyway. You know, when in England. No, that does not work. I’d keep getting in those awkward dance-type situations. I don’t think foreigners and visitors are the problem. There’s just not a code here, and without a code there’s chaos.
