  • When you are waiting to cross a road, but there's a car blocking your route between pavements because he's waiting to pull out at the junction.
  • So you walk round the back of his car and he pulls away.
  • You're now blocking the car that was waiting behind him.
  • So you do a nervous walk/run from the knees down and a quick wave and mouth "sorry mate"

strawberry floating happened to me twice this morning.

My 2 year old lost his mobile phone last night and spent hours crying and saying “need my phone, need my phone, need my phone!”

Lewis... don't do the walk/run bit, dude. Stride out confidently! As a pedestrian you have a right to cross the road and, if you're crossing in a reasonable manner, vehicles do not have right of way. They'll have to slow down - perhaps even stop - whilst you cross. In this case, they've already stopped and, by seeing you crossing, the driver of the second vehicle should cheerily wave you across before advancing.

Of course, most drivers will instead glare / shout / toot but... strawberry-float 'em.
