Another traffic/pedestrian complaint.
Where I leave work, I have to make a lefthand turn across a very busy undivided four lane. At this corner, actually maybe 1/3 of the way down the block, is a sky walk for pedestrians to keep them from getting squished.

At least five times in the past month or two, there's been a dumbass or two standing there on the corner to my left, in the shadow of the skywalk, trying to cross the highway and making it to where if I get lucky enough to have a break in traffic, I'm going to also have to worry about them jumping in front of me. OR they've already crossed halfway and are standing in the ******* turn lane underneat the skywalk waiting to get run over and blocking me from making a turn even if I could.
I think I'm going to start throwing water baloons at them. I really don't want to run over one of them. It's too damn much paperwork.
