your "Oi!" trick to fellow pedestrians

My trick, regardless of phones/happytapping, is often to hug the wall (etc) on the inside. This is because people often, and it isn't exclusively young people neither, talk to their walking partner and don't want to talk in single file. But if you look like you ain'ta gonna budge they quickly realise you can't jinx left and jinxing right would split their yapping. Lets face it, I ain'ta gonna walk in in the road, too many like minded motorists.

Result!

There are exceptions, I don't like forcing people (or me) to walk into the road with their back to the traffic.
