Move on Back…
Hey ya’ll. Thanks for your contributions to the “I Vow to Walk Forever…” challenge earlier this week! I got a bunch of suggestions that I’ll be illustrating and describing for your blog-viewing pleasure!
Additional Reasons Why I Vow to Walk Forever…
12. MOVE TO THE BACK!

As you may have seen from my previous posts, streetcar etiquette is a delicate, intricate web of unwritten understandings that form an ephemeral membrane that keeps people from stabbing each other in the eyeball. Pretty much the only explicit rule is to MOVE BACK so that MORE PEOPLE can get ON THE STREETCAR. I say explicit because:
1. It’s written EVERYWHERE. It says “Please Move Back”… then a couple of steps later is say “Move Back a Little Further Please”… then a couple of steps later it says “Even Further Please!”. Someone spent a lot of time thinking up that complex wording and stencilling it on the inside of the streetcar.
2. There are recorded messages that intermittently TELL YOU to move back.
3. It is basic common sense that your GIANT HEAD would prevent me from getting onto the streetcar because it’s GIANT and takes up the whole aisle.
Move back, turd! Anyways. Note how good I’m getting at illustrating in MS Paint: Mr. Giant Head has a SICK Chihuahua on his T-Shirt. BRRRAAAPP!
