Oh, I'm not well.

I recently moved my business operation from a very quiet industrial area where I got to park in front of my own door, to a college campus. It's the same college I went to, but that was when Lincoln was President and the culture shock has been... well... shocking. I rarely get to park less than a 15 minute walk from the building. That's good for me and I can already see myself toning up so logically I am all in favor of it... but I grumble all the same. I hate waiting to cross the street. I resent the tides of oncoming traffic and the pokey walk signal. TODAY... there was a break in the traffic. I got to cross against the light. BUT I had already pushed the button for the walk signal. I gloated. Yes! GLOATED that the evil traffic was going to have to pull up and stop in a few minutes for NO ONE! BWA-HA-HAH!!!! I was sure gonna show that TRAFFIC!

Anyway it reminded me of back when I was sure gonna show Dino. Just as effectually, I might add. Holy Crossing Guard Batman! I have to step one the traffic!

Ahem. Did I mention I also teach classes at this college sometimes? If you're going to make a perfunctory statement like that, you're going to have to qualify with three examples. :wink2:

Yes Amends shall be Monday AM washing the windows of as many cars as able for 3 light changes before starting work for the day *LOL*

Step one the rush mode and stop to smell the flowers.
People watch as you wait on traffic. If nothing else it may give you a day of things to laugh about*LOL*
And next time if there is a break in traffic..return and press the button anyways. You will be causing others to slow down and smell the flowers *LOL*

At least now you know to stay on the curb when the 18-wheeler flies by instead of jumping in front of it and trying to talk it into stopping.

Tonight when I crossed the street, I had to wait for the walk signal. It was late so the cars were straggly but irritatingly too close to cross safely. The light changed when there was but one straggler coming from each direction, with nothing behind them for as far as the eye could see. They had to sit there and watch me cross. I'm quite certain that right now one of them is doing a step one on ME.
