>People who saunter across the street when there is traffic in it, really piss me off. They are rude and either don’t know or don’t care about it.
For those of you who weren’t taught by your parents, let me educate you:
Whenever you are crossing the street, whether in a crosswalk or not, and someone in a car is waiting for you to go, you perform what I call a “courtesy scurry”. It’s a short quick faux jog/run that acknowledges someone else is in the world.
Now, there are exceptions to this rule: 1) people with physical ailments who are barely ambulatory, 2) pregnant women beyond their 5th month, 3) children under the age of 5 and their parents.
Usually, the courtesy scurry is accompanied by a courtesy wave if the person in the car waved you across or otherwise went out of their way to let you cross the street.
