Dear stupid Provo pedestrian:

I suppose you think the world is your playground, though you're a couple of generations too old for that accusation to be stereotypically leveled at you.  Why else would you walk across 4th South, and across the tracks halfway down the platform at Trolley, not once, but three times, before you finally set your but down to wait for the train?

Just because there was no traffic on the street when you shot it a casual glance does not mean that there will never be traffic on that street.  Just because there was no train coming when you decided to walk across the tracks doesn't mean there will never be a train coming.  Cars turn right that you can't see out of the corner of your eye.  Trains sometimes come up without making much noise.  And then you get hit.


Please stop.
