    Is it rude to pass someone on a jogging trail and not say anything like pardon me?

    I have just started to go jogging because I'm getting fat and I wear my mp3 player. It's loud, so I don't wanna take them out every time I pass someone. It's not like I push them out of the way and there is plenty of room to pass but is there some little code I need to know about so I don't get beat up on the trail for being rude?

    You don't need to say anything like that because it's a sign of weakness. When you're out there it is you and the trail. Sayings like "excuse me" and "pardon me" are so overused it sickens me. People need to stop apologizing so frequently and ones who often expect it thinking you're rude need to shut the hell up.  And when you're in the grocery store passing in front of a shopper who is starring at an item, don't you dare say "excuse me". You are there to shop as much as they are, and so what you passed in front of him/her. What is the world coming to? People are too soft these days and other countries laugh at us how far we have taken our unnecessary apologies.

    When you jog or bike, when you pass someone you say one of two things:

    Passing on your right.
    Passing on your left.

    This lets the person in front of you to know from which side you are about to pass. A lot of people walk, chat and move very slowly. It's not rude to let them know that you are about to pass and from which direction.

    Of course not you don't have to say anything especially if you don't bump into someone or knock them down or touch them. I go walking around the jogging track all the time. People walk and jog and run at different speeds if you stop to talk to everyone you pass there would be no benefit of the jogging or walking. There is nothing wrong with smiling are waving or being friendly if you want to but most people consider the walk or jog to be exercise and a workout rather than a social meet and greet.
