There is one thing that annoys me more than anything and that’s people not waiting for the green man at crossings especially when I have BG with me.
From a very young age I have told BG we must wait for the green man, people gave me strange looks telling this to a newborn baby but at 3 years old she know to wait for the green man. She even tells people off that doesn't wait and warns them that they will go on the naughty list and get no presents!
There are two situations when it really, really annoys me.
- When BG is with at a crossing, I am trying to teach my child road safety and you just go and run across the road undermining everything I am trying to teach her. WAIT FOR THE GREEN MAN!
- Parents running across the road with their children and not waiting for the green man. What on earth are you teaching your children??? I don’t care how clear the road looks, cars whizz around corners all of the time. Do you want your child to get hurt or even killed? WAIT FOR THE GREEN MAN
You are probably wondering what set this rant off. On my way home from town today I was at the crossing (waiting for the green man) and two mothers with young children in buggies decided not to wait and were narrowly missed being hit by a car that was speeding around the corner.
WAIT FOR THE FUCKING GREEN MAN!
