You don't have to say thank you at a pelican/zebra


#1

Someone shouted at me for not saying thanks at a zebra crossing… they have to stop so it’s not like they did anything out of the goodness of their heart? Right?


#2

Zoo signs are getting stranger and stranger


#3

You don’t have to say thank you ever, Elaina. We do though because we’re living in a society.


#4

No you’re not getting it, it doesn’t warrant a thank you at all I’m saying


#5

I put up a hand of thanks at a zebra crossing but not at a pelican crossing, generally, would never tell someone off for not doing so though obviously


#6

Thank you for your clarification.

See! That wasn’t hard was it!


#7

Ant, do you expect me to say thank you if people stop at a red light???


#8

You’re completely 100% in the right here.


#9

Hand of thanks

  • Zebra crossing
  • Pelican crossing
  • Someone letting you cross at a non-designated-crossing point
  • None of these

I’m just lightly yanking your chain, friend. I too, like Aggsy, raise a hand/give a thumbs up at a zebra crossing but never at a pelican crossing, that would be insane.


#11

I thought so, I’m glad we have the same opinion (won’t say thanks because it doesn’t call for it)


#12

They want you to thank them for not running you over, think that means they are in the wrong


#13

You know I usually smile or raise a hand too, but I was deep in thought so I just didn’t but I was a bit like ‘Whaaa???’ when I got shouted at


#14

What were you thinking about?


#15

Maybe they are from France where people generally don’t stop at a zebra crossing unless you step out


#16

I was thinking about something quite sad :frowning:


#17

What the fuck is a pelican crossing?


#18

Traffic lights.


#19

I’m not being an arse here but it was a white van…
