    So, you guys obviously know how us Americans drive right? We do it the opposite way of you guys. Well, thats the way also walk in our school hallways. So I was wondering for all the UK and Europe kids, do you guys walk down the hall the same way your cars drive on the road?

    England doesn't give a fuck which way they have to walk [​IMG]

    Serious: I actually never thought about that...

    When I was in school people walked in both directions across the whole width of the hallway. There was no real order to it.

    The majority of Europe is right-sided as well. It is just the islanders that are that different. Just like you guys are unique in the western world for using imperial measurements and calling basic social security measures communist.

    I always walk on the left side of the corridor ( hallway for you Americans )

    and that may be because we drive on the left side as well ( which is the real way to drive ) [​IMG]

    You Americans seriously have a set side to walk down the corridor?

    Here in SKN and Most Other Caribbean territories drive on the left. (Thanks to British Colonists). But we don't care a crap how we walk down halls.

    In my school there are signs up saying to walk on the left and I usually tend to by default but its not the biggest deal, as when walking with friends you take up the whole corridor anyway.

    i went to school in the US we didnt have halls at my school it was just like a large courtyard and different buildings for different subjects...so basically everyone would just walk all over the place and everyone in different directions...and we drive on the left here but if you seen Tokyo people just randomly walk in any direction and dont care if they walk into you lol...

    Yes, but only one of our teachers was enough of a knob to enforce it [​IMG]
    On the London Underground the escalators / corridors run that way around too.

    Well, we have no certain way of going down the hall either but most of us do, and in other schools. So I was just wondering if you walk down the left side instead of the right lol
