  1. What’s this reasoning? People wearing out the track one way? People getting dizzy? So does everyone do a turn about at the half hour mark?
    I like your haiku, it makes me think.

  3. I apologize in advance, but this made me laugh. I could hear the frustration. Mine bursts out of me when the walkers are on the bike path, or small children are on their little bikes going the wrong way on the walking path! I really enjoyed this!

  4. I am with Elsie and wonder why? Thanks for an enlightening haiku and I can envision myself yelling in my head too. 🙂 (Glad you enjoyed your trip.)

  5. Definitely too much for me to keep track off – clockwise or counterclockwise? first half or last half of the hour? Good excuse to read a book and not walk at all!

  10. This reminds me of the sign in the pool that talks about the proper way to swim laps when you share a lane with someone. No one in the pool ever swims that way. Not even me. But when I pause at the end of the lane, I always look up at the sign and wonder why the lifeguard never enforces it.
