Date: Sunday, September 3, 2011, about 6:00pm, Newark International Airport.


Cora parks right before a crosswalk outside the airport. And can ya believe it?- this crosswalk was set up with the latest gadgets; a stop light for cars AND a crosswalk signal for peds. We throw my bags in the back and as luck would have it, we have a green light! Cora starts to move forward and some jerk starts walking against the red hand. This kind of action would be fine except it always causes a chain reaction. People from both sides of the street start walking. Thinking about how long we could potentially be stuck in this abyss, Cora gets pissed and I tell her to start inching forward; welcome to East coast driving! When it seemed we were in the clear, a nice Jewish family starts in and Cora has to stop nose deep in the crosswalk. She honks, the Rabbi stares at us, I start waving my arms, he starts yelling, Cora starts laughing and I probably cursed at him.

See. Traffic laws make people swear at men of God because in a crosswalk, we are all idiots.
