Default Cussing female on multimodal path

We were in the Fenney area today walking with our 2 grandkids when we heard a ding ding bell. When we turned around she was cussing up a storm telling us to walk in single file. She was riding a bicycle. This is not an easy time for anyone. But to cuss at us was disheartening. I'm sure she is stressed at home, but please not in front of the kids. They are not here on vacation.

When traffic coming you should walk single file and be ready to get off path out of harms way. I wouldn’t want to be dead right. Sorry she couldn’t of said it more politely. Cussing in front of kids was uncalled for.

I wonder if it was the same "lady" who angrily confronted my wife and I as we walked along the Hogeye Preserve multi-modal path on Monday morning claiming we were walking on the "wrong side" of the path? Apparently there are people who have appointed themselves as deputies of the law. I am sorry your grandchildren were exposed to such rudeness.

If OP had to turn around to see the lady, OP was walking on the wrong side of the pathway.

We were just 2 grandparents and a family walking along with a stroller. Try telling a 5 year old and 6 year old to walk in single file. They were jyst so excited to go to put put but this old cranky lady was a nut case and to cuss was so sad.

Well, no excuse for cussing, she could have just yelled she is coming through. At least she didn’t run anyone down. That’s my fear when I am out walking.

Wait. What?

Not if you were raised by my mother. How we talk and what we say should be dictated by the audience and the circumstances. It's called good manners which to me just means kindness and respect. It isn't that I don't use colorful language but I certainly would try to think of children present.

No excuse for the cussing, but you were equally at fault -- if you had to turn around, you were walking on the wrong side of the path! You need to walk against traffic. (If perchance the bicycle was driving on the left side of the path, which I doubt, please disregard my comment!)

This is an ADULT community. If kids hear more than they should then leave them home.

DianeM, by chance were you the crazy lady on the path?

Polite language is appropriate no mater the age. That is why they call it polite.

I don’t even know what a multimodal path is so no.

I am polite but if I do swear, I’m not looking around first.
