no. please. don't. stop.

A few months ago a new crossing guard started working on the main street I drive down to get to work. The fact that there are never any children, EVER, when I slow to a crawl in this school zone has nothing to do with my feelings towards this guard.

Because I have no feelings towards the guard. I mean other than a vague sense of mammalian connectedness that prevents me from running over humans and animals. Nothing teary, just you know, just that we have fur, we shit, hakuna matata.

Oooo, she's one of those ├╝ber-friendly types. Big smile to every passing car. And a wave. Using the stop sign. Let me repeat that: She waves at passing motorists with her stop sign.

I so wanted to be there when that behavior came to a screeching halt.

Waving with hand. Stop sign held in "off" position at her side.

She waves at passing motorists with her stop sign.

The first thing that came to my mind when I imagined how that must've looked was "Awww...isn't that cute?"

She wasn't in the middle of the street while she was *cough* waving, was she? (It wouldn't surprise me, because The Stupid, It Burns.)

I know exactly who you are talking about!
The first time I saw her wave, I seriously thought, 'What the hell is her problem?!?!?'
Being that I am not a morning person and try to avoid all human contact until 10 am (of course yelling at idiot drivers does not count).
