Why do the homeless (or more politically correct, transients) seem to be always walking so fast? I mean, where are they in such a rush to get to? Are they late for a meeting or a conference call? Unlikely. Do they have appointments to keep? With whom? Or are they running away from someone, and if they are, where would they run to the safety of?

The opposite extreme is that if they aren't walking around hurriedly, they just seem to be sitting around doing nothing. There seems to be no middle ground ... except when they cross the street at improper crossing areas. For a people who don't seem to have schedules to keep, they sure think they should delay those of us who do!

Inspired by the memory of a car ride in downtown Vancouver.
