I'll chime in and say it doesn't matter if you're a woman giving the advice. I have mentioned foot retention to two dudes lately (one zooming down Lordship Lane) and both either denied not having foot retention (what? maybe he didn't hear me past the earbuds in his ears) and one, a teen going back to school today and fighting his way up Crystal Palace road while I breezed past him, shouted at me a couple times. Weird.
Then a chick kept to the outside of the Goose Green rdbt and cut across traffic without looking, just trusting her arm to show cars the way. I caught up at her and told her she put herself at serious risk doing that, to take her lane at rdbts! She just sort of did that weird thing where people say things without saying things? I don't get that one.
