Parking in downtown Dallas is at a premium. I pay around $60 a month for parking across the street from the office. The parking garage was finished, but the building was never built above it. (I hear that the city is trying to get some company to finish the building) See the X in the picture below.
Most people that park there and that work in my building jaywalk (blue arrow). I don't jaywalk! My pet-peeve is the people that do. If you go the other direction and cross at the crosswalk it's maybe an extra 100 feet (green arrows).
This annoys me... why can't people walk a few extra steps to cross the street legally? My mother taught me to not play or walk out into traffic. But every one of my coworkers make fun of me for walking to the crosswalk. I tell them that I'm not surprised that there are so many obese people in the country that they can't walk a few extra feet. This goes along with my pet-peeve of people just standing on an esclator... don't get me started on that!
I drive on that road on my way home and I am amazed to see people running out into traffic. It's especially bad in the winter when it gets dark early.
Am I just being weird about this?
