Guess the Pedestrian

I spend a lot of time driving for work, and as anyone who does knows, you need to do something to alleviate the boredom of the road. That’s why I came up with the game Guess the Pedestrian.

It’s a simple game, and you can play it alone or with friends.

In my experience, unless you live downtown in a big city, there are only a few kinds of pedestrians out and about:

  1. People too poor to afford a car
  2. People with DUI’s
  3. Kids

People exercising don’t count as pedestrians – they’re doing something else all together.

The fun is trying to guess which type each pedestrian you see is. The girl in a Sepultura T-shirt and pajama pants pushing a baby stroller and smoking a cigarette? No car. The 40-something guy carrying a 12-pack and a bag of groceries down the street? DUI. Keep tabs on how many of each you see, or with a buddy, each pick a type, and see who gets to 10 first. It’s fun for everyone! Except, of course, those poor pedestrians.
