Crossing Guards... menace to society?

Retro Post Alert - Original Post 2005

Crossing Guards... why do they think they rule the world when they put their reflector jacket, safety belt and blue cop hat on? I understand the need for them so children can make it across the street safely... But why does my 4'6" 300 lb. crossing guard feel the need to wave me along, letting me know I don't need to stop at the stop sign. Traffic laws do not apply while she waves her 12 inch arm my way. It's as if she becomes the law once she is in "uniform". I won't even get into the dramatic way she stops traffic when she spots a child 18 houses away. Whistles, bells, darting into the road like some mental patient.

Maybe it's me?
