On the streets and subways of London, I’ve seen a lot of people pushing/hurrying past other pedestrians and I wondered, “What’s the rush? If you miss this train, another will be along in a few minutes.”
Then I realized that they’re not pushing past because they’re in a hurry – they’re just annoyed that other people are not moving at their designated pace. So, they’re not driven by their own self-importance or poor time management, they simply want to get away from all the other people.
Perhaps they should consider not living in a big city that attracts a lot of visitors.
