|Can you even find him?|
Still, he chased down three perps in about 30 minutes... pretty much the going rate during good behavior times.
I happen to know that the previous crossing guard left the job because of "anger issues". It was a mutual decision between her and the school to leave the crosswalk. She is still a beloved employee of the school, just in a happier position for everyone involved.
I admit that careless/distracted drivers
This morning, after the good behavior shift with my MoCop, I was crossing the street to go back home, since we live on the school-side of the crosswalk. In fact, we purposely chose that neighborhood so OUR kids wouldn't have to cross this street to get to school.
As I approached my side of the street, a car came barelling down the hill from my right. It was almost like seeing me in the hideous vest in the crosswalk egged him on to assert his superior I'm-in-a-car-and-you're-not-so-you-better-get-the-&%$^#-outta-my-way position. In fact, I think he was so focused on buzzing me, that he didn't see Mr. MoCop.
I wasn't fazed. I had my eyes on him as I continued to walk at my casual pace, thinking, "Oh, you so don't want to do this".
It wasn't even a pursuit. It was more of an interception as Mr. MoCop pulled out and brought that snotty little sedan to a stop.
I wanted to hug him.
