I seem to recall that in this country it is technically against the law to stand still on the pavement... Apparently the pavement is for walking along...
Having just spent some time trying to find a reliable reference to back this up (I really mustget a life!) I am led to the conclusion this might be an OWT (Old Wives Tale)
I think in Spain it may well be a law that the elderly must find the narrowest section of pavement, ie the point at which there is a bin and a lamppost, and then use that section to stop for a chat, each with a small yappy dog with disproportionately long lead!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
