Crosswalk Pet Peeve



I've written about some of my pet peeves in the past. Here's another one: People constantly pressing the button for the crosswalk.

What's worse is when the mechanism is one of those that beep. It gets annoying. The incessant "beep beep beep beep beep" and it's pretty loud sometimes. Ugh!!! It won't make the stop light go any faster. They don't realize that every light has a set timer, so the only thing you can do is wait. All you have to do is press it once. Press it hard enough for the system to read it. That's it.


Anyway...this week I go to work on a new production. One of my favorite things about what I do. I'm producing another short film. This time for a good friend of mine. That's plus one on the resume. It's a one day shoot, but that doesn't matter to me. As long as I'm working on some type production, I can be happy.

Hahahahaa I'm guilty on all counts! Annoying, I know but pressing it multiple times makes the time move quickly....hehehehe :D (I know it doesn't but...)

Z'riz: I guess it's a way for people to pass the time.

Hee-hee. I usually press it twice, I think in case I didn't press hard enough the first time. There are some crosswalks that automatically give cars a yellow light when you push it, nice for pedestrians, lame for cars. I used to push elevator buttons multiple times and say that I wanted the elevator to sense my impatience!

Diana: I don't mind elevator buttons. =) The one that annoy me are the ones with the loud beeps. If it's just the old fashioned push button, I don't mind those.
