Hallway Etiquette Is Essential

When people mention the wildest places they’ve been, they might say a rowdy concert, an out-of-control party, a smelly zoo, maybe even the jungle itself. For me, I say the Judson High School hallways.

Let’s analyze these hallways a bit. The rudeness in the hallways can be unbearable. There’s shoving, bumping, pushing and even yelling. Many Judson students have been pushed and prodded to the point of no return. It’s understandable that we all have to get to class on time, but there’s no excuse for sprinting down the halls while possibly running into people.

On the other hand, if you’re going to walk slowly through the halls, please be nice enough to move to side for those who might need to walk a little faster. It’s difficult to get to class on time and go to the bathroom with the 5 minutes we have when people are simply galloping through the halls.

If we’re smart enough to not drive on the wrong side of the road, then why are people walking on the wrong side of the hallway? It just makes getting to class harder for yourself and others. Just be mindful enough to make sure that you’re staying on the right.

More so, couples and groups of friends have tendency to plant themselves in the worst places. Whether they are by the railings, leaned up against the lockers, or crowding the stairways, it’s quite bothersome. It would benefit everyone if you talked in a place where you wouldn’t be blocking people. Having people bump into you can’t be too comfortable, right? It just makes everyone angry and could lead to a hostel situation.

Seriously Rockets, keep moving, move to the side, and walk a little faster. We all know it’s hard enough trying to navigate through the school with about 3,600 students. We all need to do our part to make sure we have a safe school. Therefore, could we please just be a little more courteous and make walking down the hall a little easier for all of us?
