Pet Peeve #1

So, Here is my first pet peeve. It drives me crazy when I'm standing at the crosswalk or even driving by the crosswalk and I see someone repeatedly press the crosswalk button. YOU ONLY HAVE TO PRESS IT ONCE PEOPLE! I would guess that maybe this part of me that goes crazy when I see someone press the button over and over and over come from being an electrician and knowing that when you press it once there is a little relay that sucks in and tells the light that you are there. Until I saw a fellow electrician press the button over, and over, and over! WHAT?!?! Does he not get it either or am I just that much smarter than he is? No matter how many times you press that button the really still stays activated. Pressing it more than once is totally redundant and not necessary! My husband does it just to bug me. I try to put myself between him and the button when ever I get the chance, fortunately we don't walk much since we live out in the middle of nowhere.



Ahhhh, I feel better now that I have vented this morning! :)

You are funny Nicole. I think that I am a multiple button pusher, it must work faster if I push it a million times right?

dumb people- don't they know if you blow at the light it will change?

But what if it doesn't work the first time? Or the second or the 10th time?

I push it over and over again just to have something to do while I wait. I logically know that it won't make the light turn any faster, but it relieves my impatience.

I do the same thing at elevators.

It makes me feel better.
