don't walk unless the others do

QUICKIE RANT: It drives me insane that there is no apostrophe in the street crossing signs that say "DONT WALK." Surely, I'm not the only one... or maybe I am.

dont_walk

Or maybe they only spell it wrong here in the South. :^)

Read "Eats, Shoots & Leaves" by Lynne Truss. Then give your Two Weeks Notice ;-)

I actually bought that book for a friend of mine a while back, but I haven't read it myself. I've heard it's a good one.

I hate the pictures of the white guy walking and the red hand.

I prefer getting The Red Hand of Doom to a dose of bad grammar.

i dont mind it so much. dont know why. maybe because ive always associated apostrophes with being possessive.

(this is all supposed to be wicked funny commentary, but it might be the bacardi...)

I won't be satisfied until all of the crosswalks say "Crossnow. Crossnow. Crossnow.", like in "Blade Runner". I also want Deckard's gun...

number nine now huh? at least I'm higher than god.

I'm just refusing to post until someone correctly guesses the real tickles, without going through the process of elimination.

I got hit by a car on Valentine's Day whilst Jaywalking. Think about that.

Yeah, Tickles, you're slippin.' I mean, until you reveal the truth as to whether or not you're the pantsless man on your little photo game...

Has bothered me for years, too. I prefere the hand. Though, now we have hands that count down from 20 underneath them.. like THAT is neccessary.
