There are approximately twenty people standing at a pelican crossing. There are about the same amount of people waiting on the opposite side of the road. It's a busy main road, lots of cars and buses hurtling down it, and the people wait for a good couple of minutes, clogging up the pavements and generally making a nuisance of themselves. Question- do they not know that unless you press the button, they could be waiting there for an awfully long time?
What is it about the Edinburgh festival that turns people into morons, forgetting even the most basic 'city survival skills'?
