So, I thought that sidewalks were meant for humans to walk on, wouldn’t you think so? I have become obsessed with watching where I walk to and from anywhere on campus, that is unless I am drunk. Well everyday walking to class I hope that you will now look out for what is on the sidewalk because you would be so grossed out!
Well first off, there is the spit that guys love to hack up onto the sidewalk rather than on the grass! Great, just what I want to step in is your boogers because you are too lazy to spit it in the grass! Then if you don’t step in that there is a good chance you are going to step in mud because apparently here on campus the sidewalks are meant for their vehicles to drive on. If it’s not a motor vehicle then you may have bikes that are on the sidewalks which I thought that you can’t do that because it’s illegal. Well the reason I say this is because last year on my walk in between Roseman Hall and the University Center to class I ended up getting hit by a girl on a bike in the back of my calf. This made it so hard to walk anywhere for a week and my calf was super bruised and swollen. Lastly, if you have somehow managed to avoid these obstacles in your path there’s a pretty good chance you could step in dog poop. Well the people who are handicapped on campus don’t have to pick up their dog poop or maybe they are required to but just would rather not? Well if their dogs don’t crap on the sidewalk, they are rudely pulling their dog while they are trying to go to the bathroom or someone steps in it and then smears it all over the sidewalks.
So in the end I believe we need to take back the sidewalks from motor vehicles, bicyclists, people spitting on the sidewalks and of course we should hire someone to pick up after the people that have dogs due to a handicap. Wouldn’t it be great to not stare at the sidewalk and worry about stepping on something nasty or getting run over on the way to class!? Also, wouldn’t it be great to offer someone a poop job anyways in this economy?
