Walking in a parking lot: Do you...???

It drives me NUTS when I am driving in a parking lot and a pederstrian crosses in front of me, sees me waiting for them to pass, and just leisurely meanders along not caring that they are making me wait.

Do you quicken your pace when walking in a parking lot and their is someone waiting for you to pass or do you just take your time, driver be d*mned!

---of course this does not apply to someone with a disability, injured, elderly, with small children...

Speed up as I know how it is when someone just takes their good old time with no consideration of the person driving.

I always speed up and give a wave. The best are the people who don't look up or make eye contact and I guess assume that the car will stop. I trust no one Chat Icon

If someone lets me cross, I'm hustling!
But so many people walk like they are taking a leisurely afternoon stroll in a park while cars are waiting

It depends if I am on crossing in the crosswalk in the parking lot or not. If I am in h crosswalk, then I walk normally since I have the right of way.

I put a little pep in my step as I give a little wave, but as the body starts walking, it has to stay at the pace I can handle and sometimes i feel bad. My mind tries to hurry it across because I still think I am a young person...lol lol

Saunter and look at the driver directly in the eyes. Lol of course I move it. Although have been the driver where the pedestrian saunters and looks directly at you

I always walk quicker if I’m aware that someone is waiting for me. I don’t want to waste people’s time.

Whoops - I voted for the wrong one and I don't think I can change my answer. I always try to move out of the way or go quickly so I'm not making someone wait on me too long.

I always quicken my pace and give a "thank you" wave.
