Okay, is it just me or are women in Mexico the most rude people you've ever met? As is well known, sidewalks in Mexico are very narrow. Due to my brain injury I have to walk with a cane for balance. I am also 6'3" and weigh about 220 (so I'm easy to be seen, it's not like coming upon me is a surprise). As I stumble down the sidewalk, Mexican men will step away to allow me to pass (or at least make an effort to miss me), but Mexican women will try to knock me down. They never yield! I've also noticed this in grocery stores. The men will try to avoid collisions, but the women will push their cart right at you, challenging you to yield to them or will bump shoulders with you instead of trying to avoid collisions.
I am baffled as to why? Is this a common occurance across Mexico or perhaps it is a "Bajio" thing. In the past I have stumbled away to avoid collisions, but lately I've just been "bustin shoulders" with the women.
There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading in the same direction,
so it doesn't matter which path you take.
The only one wasting time is the one
who runs around and around the mountain,
telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.
