Why do people feel the need to push the button at pedestrian crossings repeatedly? Do they think this will make the traffic disappear? Do they think it will make the lights change faster? Do they think maybe the little green man didn't notice them pressing it the first time?

I find this also happens with elevators, although less frequently to be fair. Do they think maybe because they've pressed the button more than once the elevator will think "oh shit, somebody's in a hurry, better get a move on!!"?

Something to ponder...

  1. They are the same people who hit all they keys on the computer keyboard when it seems not to be working. Drives me crazy especially when I'm trying to help. Come on - slow down!
