My pet peeve: when people are waiting to cross at an intersection and they push the crosswalk signal button over and over and over and over and over and over and over.
I want to scream at them. "CAN'T YOU FIGURE OUT THAT IT'S ON A TIMER? IDIOT!"
Domestic Partner says people do it because of nerves--a habit born out of tension.
It makes me tense, that's for sure.
Why am I so petty about this? I really can't stand it. As soon as I see someone pushing that signal button non-stop, I make myself look away. If I don't, my irritation increases.
In her stand up comedy, Ellen DeGeneres talks about people who push the elevator button multiple times. "Like that's going to make the elevator come any faster," she jests.
If a non-stop button pusher is the most irritating part of my day, I figure I should be thankful for an easy life.
