>Walking through downtown can be equally as annoying as riding the bus, if not more. Especially during the holiday season. Yesterday I had to pretend I was on my cell phone to avoid the “Do you have a minute to help the Environment?” people, had six requests for spare change, two unsolicited creepy hellos from strange men and one extremely irritating guy three steps behind me talking loudly on his cell phone about his hiking trip to Rattlesnake Mountain and saying “DUDE!” every 8 seconds. I had to walk one whole block out of my way just to ditch him.
