For fucks sake
you should have seen her in a lift.
What, you think I didn't press it properly or something? Screw off.
when calling the lift. Especially when they get in and get annoyed that its going all the way down before it goes up or vice versa.
press the button and then cross without waiting for the lights to change. You can't have it both ways, you cunts.
only children and pensioners should be allowed to use those crossings. everyone with a brain: use it.
basically, 'people who' use peilcan crossing to cross the road. they can get fucked.
The best is to press the button when you have no intention of crossing anyway, and carry on your way.
Seizing the day, striding imperiously out into the road, unbound by the repressive and arbitrary systems which govern other mortals' lives, who can only stand upon the kerb and watch me shave off 20 seconds off my journey enviously. Beautiful.
Sorry but I'm running late for my nine o'clock
but these people cause others to slow down. STOP PRESSING BUTTONS YOU HAVE BRAINS.
very much the awesome villain striding away from something which is about to explode behind him in frame.
I do it without checking, sorry
get on a busy tube with somebody they know and stand a considerate distance from but then rub themselves continuously on a stranger, what's with that?
then stop there for a moment to get their bearings whilst everyone else piles up behind them.
THE CUNT'S CUNTS
if you're ready to cross the road
push the button, let me know
get the wrong idea and don't slow
stop the speed that i control
you may as well press it. If you didn't see it being pressed and even though there is a light on, you'd be a right chump not to press it then find this is some special crossing where the light goes off when it has been pressed. It takes seconds. It is only annoying when you are next to the button, have pressed it, and someone gets all huffy and bumps past you to press it.
when someone's standing right next to it and they haven't pressed it
if its a busy road its on a timer and the button does nothing. If the button actually does something then its a less busy road and you can just wait for gaps in traffic without needing to push it.
like breaking bad isn't ACTUALLY about meths (apparently)
are the real enemy
and not an apathetic layabout .
to the top floor up the stairs whilst pressing the call lift button on each floor so it delays my lazy colleagues who get the lift.
Almost had to leave the office when "people who shit in urinals" appeared.
That's mine as well.
I had no idea I was such a cunt.
It's virtually endless.
with my *people who eat off cold plates are worse than rats*
People who use Japanese words for the Saké of it
but just say the word "achoo"
The type where each flow of traffic gets its own green light. So for at least 1 minute in every 4 (as an arbitrary time), each crossing will have a green man.
There is no need for a button. It does nothing. Is it there to appease the idiot crossing-user, who may otherwise simply stroll out onto the carriageway in a blind panic at the thought of never being allowed to cross?
[That doesn't make sense]
Also, when you get pedestrian crossings STRAIGHT after another set of lights (literally the other side of the junction), so that to prevent confusion the amber and green lights are sort of covered up and you don't see them until right near the crossing... Was coming up to one of these the other day and got something of a surprise when a red light effectively appeared without warning. Stupid things.
