SAHW, an abbreviation for "Socially Awkward Hallway Walker(s)" (Pronounced "Saw") are a prominent category of people found world round. These people, especially inside a school/office building, have a tendency to walk excruciatingly slow, block doorways, bump into you, and just be plain out nuisances without even realizing it.

Some features that may help you diagnose a SAHW are the following:

- Walking slowly, often holding up large crowds.

- Standing in doorways, preventing people from gaining access.

- Bumping into people.

- Not having interest in their surroundings, often being too focused on stopping the flow of the Hallway.
*Person 1 slowly walks through the Hallway, keeping a large crowd behind them*

Person 2: Wow, we've been walking for hours! Person 1 is such a SAHW!

Person 3: Yeah, I know. It's ridiculous.

A SAHW is the most dreaded sight in any Hallway anywhere
