Instructions in Life



I went for a walk several days ago and came to the crosswalk where I saw these instructions. I actually took the time to read them as for some reason it entertained me. I was wondering if was really nessacasrry to have those instructions. But then I thought it probably is. There are a lot of people out there that don't know how to properly cross the street. Good thing we have instructions onto he pole for them to read.

I was thing a video screen with something to watch would be more fun while you wait to cross the street, but then maybe I wouldn't want tot stop watching and I would miss my light and have to wait again. As you can see crossing the street can be difficult.

I was wondering if there other things in life that it would be helpful to have instructions posted to help those that need it. I sure hope not. In case you forgot how to cross the street or don't understand those newer crosswalk light review the picture. There will be a test later.

I had a coworker back in Idaho who insisted that the crosswalk wasn't set to the proper time to let anyone cross it. When I asked what he meant he said that the flashing hand meant you weren't supposed to cross. Poor guy - I pictured him starting out into the crosswalk, then scurrying back to where he started every time the hand began blinking. For all I know, he's still stuck at that very same crosswalk as I write this.
