Every morning and afternoon he makes me so mad!! He holds traffic up for really long amounts of time waiting for kids to get out of cars or mosey down sidewalks. He directs traffic to go on side streets while holding up Main St. I am afraid a little child will get hit while he is doing this. He seems to be on a real power trip. All the other school crossing guards let a group of children gather and then cross rather than just one at time. Am I the only one that sees a problem?

The crossing guard at the jr high is the same way.
I agree

He's def on a power trip. Stares you down with a look "go ahead and try it"... I've seen traffic backed up to the square. And yes the Jr High guard does it too. Its okay to have a group of kids wait for 10 seconds while traffic clears... How about drivers doing an illegal u-turn into the offset parking area???

Yes, I get irritated by him letting a stream of kids come out instead of waiting for groups to build. It will be all clear but if a kid comes out of the school he continues to hold traffic until the kid gets there and past him.

I can't believe you people is your world so small that this is what disturbs you to the point of complaining ? It's unreal let's have children group up on a busy corner so you don't have an inconvenient five minutes . If your going to take a stand for something look at the whole picture not just how your inconvenienced.

I agree with you "Wow". Isn't there something more important than to complain about the crossing guards. If you don't like it, there are other routes you can take to get around town. I know the traffic is bad but it's like that all around town.

This is one of those first world problems that others would die to have. As opposed to going hungry or being killed in your house

I agree with you guys that this is a small problem. There are big problems in the world: starvation, war, murder etc. I am not stupid....
I was simply addressing an issue, much like the other VERY lame issues on topix. There was no profanity used, unlike a lot of other posts. It just bugs me and I wondered if anyone else felt the same. Lighten up you "holier than thou" people!! Seriously, this whole cite is idle, usually mean spirited gossip!! I'm sure none of you have ever been annoyed when someone cut you off while driving, or made you wait a long time in a line. I am sure you simply smile and think happy thoughts!! You are better people than I am......be very proud of yourself!!

You know what really bothers me? Kids. That's right kids. There all just greedy little attention whores. Crying and whining whenever they don't get their way. And they can't do anything themselves. And they want you to watch while they do something lame or congratulate them on what a good painting they did. Well guess what, your painting sucks now let the adults talk you little shit

the guy that is in charge of your childs safety in crossing the street, is the same guy that got hit by a train a couple years ago because he thought he could beat it.

He is working as a crossing guard because he got fired from Aisin for calling in too frequently. Being a crossing guard allow him to make a little money and continue to milk his unemployment. When his family gets taxes back they do not work at all until all of the $$$ is wasted on junk like video games. they have also been know to hit up local churches for $$$$ after using the system to freeload on our dollar. This is the type of person hired to trust with crossing our kids.
