Yesterday - we saw 2 obviously short a few fries

of a happy meal pedestrians.

About 12 noon
The all too common tooooooo lazy to walk 20 feet to use the cross walk leaving the GA DMV building. Playing Frogger a cross 5 lanes to get to Mickey D's. Note: This next to the RCSO South Side Precinct, but not 1 ticket that I have seen been issued.

Leaving 2nd Hand Charles at the Washington Rd stoplight.
We watched as a female with NO shoes crossed Washington AGAINST the light without looking. She just walked into traffic and kept walking.
Like she expected since she was in a cross walk all Green Light traffic would stop in Washington Rd for her.

Leaving Shooters we were at the Stop light by Rhineharts and the VW dealer place. We watched an laughed as an obviously stone out of his gored saggy pant dirty white tank top dude, looked up and saw the RCSO police car parked at Rhineharts. He tossed down whatever he was smoking, staggered a few more steps, he lost his grab on his pants trying to keep his balance, he pulled them up, he notice the RCSO police car was empty, he turned around almost losing his balance and pants again, went to pick up what he dropped, almost lost his pants and balance several times in the parking lot. He finally gave up and staggered across the intersection.

Our last for the day was around 5pm
A construction worker in I-520 sitting of the concrete construction wall waiting for a break in traffic. Sees the break jumps off the wall stumbles falls in the middle Bobby Jones East bound and barely gets up and makes it across in time.

Maybe it is time to start a OPERATION CROSSWALK?
