As rude as it might be to intrude on someone's personal space, sometimes people feel just as rude to let those few know just how rude they are being; but Michael Pederson has come up with a simple solution. The street artist designed a card for the general public that is short and simple to fill out. Once done, it gives the receiver the feedback they've been needing about personal space.

Michael Pederson has specifically dubbed them "Personal Space Reference Cards." It addresses such things as touching (and the need to shift away slightly), wanting alone time (including no eye contact) and the general need for acknowledgement on these points. Hopefully no one is offended in their use.
