Coming home from work I was driving along and there was a group of about ten kids/teenagers who were crossing the road from the other side in the middle of the block. They were not in the crosswalks at either end of the block (which is where they legally should cross the road) and there is an ample turning lane in the middle for them to safely stand, but I decided to be nice and stop and wave them by rather than drive around them.
What did I get for my inconvenience? No wave from any of them to indicate thanks. I started to get annoyed and said (which of course they could not hear) "Gee, your welcome". Then I was getting dirty looks from the brats in the back, probably because I dared to speak in my own car which was idling to let their obnoxious selves pass.
Next time I'll drive around them if I see them again. Why be nice to a bunch of brats who think I owe them something?
