Just started a new job (so far I’m enjoying it a lot (although it will be
even better perfect when I can get a Cake based system (not that what is in place at the moment is bad – on the contrary it is very good – it is just that I am philosophically opposed to it…) in place… (although I really want to use a bit of Django sometime))). What comes with this is much longer walk to the office from where I park the car. My walk involves crossing some very busy and very inconveniently placed roads.
These roads have crossing points and if you are a pedestrian you get to press a button to let you cross, but the buttons do nothing – they have no effect on the traffic flow at all. All I can surmise is that the buttons are put in place purely to give pedestrians a something to do purely so they don’t scream in impotent fury at the traffic.
I know (in my heart) this to be the case, but I push the buttons anyway… out of some faint hope…
I am right aren’t I? The buttons really don’t do a thing?
