If I could implement one norm of the kitchen into everyday life, it would be the practice of loudly saying "Behind!" when you're in such a position--usually when walking by--and sometimes elaborating with "Sharp behind" and "Hot behind." Sure, it's abrupt, but man, is it effective. No one has to do anything in particular, except be aware and not step backwards.

Fellow supermarket shoppers, considered yourselves warned.

having gone to culinary school myself, I'm in the habit of shouting out "behind" in the most unlikely of places: office, home (with roommates) and, yet, at the supermarket. Couldn't agree with you more.
