Piper Peanut: Hallway traffic

Hey Peanuts! 

It’s Piper Peanut back again to give you guys some more advice. 

Are you constantly getting stuck in traffic jams? 

Some of the most common issues are that people walk slowly or have really big backpacks. When there are big traffic jams, people often get impatient and start pushing other people. 

According to Hildi Gerth, ‘29, Jilly Enia, ‘29 and Clara Quintaba, ‘29, some of the most crowded hallways are the main entrance, Latin wing, arcade and the hallway overlooking Marx, especially when you are walking past the Music Lyceum. 

Traffic jams can be annoying when you have long walks to class. 

I have to go to math, all the way to choir [and then] all the way to social studies,” Quintaba said.

What’s really annoying to most people is when people are going the wrong way, talking to someone else or just simply not walking. This creates a traffic jam where people often get really impatient and start trying to push through because they have to get to class.

“I either ask people to move or stop pushing, and I usually just wait it out, because most of the time it funnels out because people have to get to class,” Enia said.

I suggest you wait it out, try and dodge people, put your phone away and avoid the busier hallways. When the weather is nice outside, I recommend walking outside to avoid the congested halls in the Arcade. Finally, don’t walk side by side with more than two people at a time. This could cause a jam and people could get mad, but if there is no one in that hallway, then go for it. 

That’s all the advice I have for you guys on this issue, thanks for reading! 

Sincerely, 

Piper
