Have you ever been running along in a race and suddenly sensed a presence behind you that won’t leave? Maybe you speed up to shake the person, but to no avail. And just as you round the corner to the finish, the drafter sprints past you into the chute with not even so much as a “good job.”
How about the other way around: as you go to pass someone, they sense your presence and speed up for a few seconds only to slow back down. You try again, and again the person won’t let you. A minute later the person’s looking over their shoulder to see where you are. Finally, having enough, you go for it guns blazing and put the pedal to the medal and the person grunts, and huffs, and scowls trying to keep up with you.
Who did you picture in these scenarios? A woman or a man? We were wondering:
When it comes to passing etiquette, is it better to be chicked or dicked?
Who typically behaves better in the heat of competition, men or women?
