Body Check

I’ve been known to say sorry to people after they bump into me. It’s more of an automatic response and I don’t really stop and think, wait, you bumped into me and not the other way around, I just say a half-ass sorry and go my way. But the other day, the pendulum swung, and I actually bumped into someone on purpose. The guy was texting as he walked down the sidewalk. Usually, I am not  bothered by this as I do it too, but I also look up every few steps to make sure no one is coming. He did not offer me the same courtesy and nearly walked straight into me before I shoulder checked him. And I didn’t say sorry.
