A sound I fear

For those of you who are attending a university right now, do tons of people on your campus ride long-boards and razor scooters? At USU it is definitely prevalent.

As I'm walking down the sidewalks to my classes, I hear the dreaded sound... pa clunk, pa clunk, pa clunk, pa clunk (the sound of the wheels going over the cracks in the sidewalk). My heart begins to beat faster as I look around me for an escape. How will this person get around a group of people walking on a sidewalk?! Are they skilled enough on their long-board or scooter to get around us?! Ahhhh, I don't want to get hit from behind!!! My biggest fear is that because long-boards are about 4 inches above the ground, they are at a perfect hight to run into my Achilles Tendon.

I don't know if anyone else ever thinks about things like this, but it freaks me out.
