Spring at Samford

.
Angela

This is my precious Angela.  This is her sophomore year at Samford, and she is loving every minute of life there. 

I asked Angela to walk around campus and take a few pictures of Spring in this glorious place.  She didn't disappoint!  You may remember the first photograph as one of the flowers I posted earlier.  The remainder were from this weekend. ENJOY!


Do you think they need any mommies there?



Emily Post's Etiquette, 17th Edition (Thumb Indexed)

Embracing Etiquette with Teresa continued... see introduction post (1-29-10.)

KEEPING YOUR COOL AT INTERSECTIONS

Traffic lights and stop signs are there to be obeyed. Do not race through yellow lights. If you are coming to an intersection and the block ahead is congested with traffic, don’t cross over until you know there is no chance of blocking everyone once the light turns red.

At four-way stops, wait your turn; the drivers proceed in the order in which they arrive at the stop sign. If it is a tie, the driver on the right goes first. Flashing red lights at an intersection are treated as a four-way stop.

Don’t block pedestrian crosswalks. If people don’t have room to walk between your car and the one behind it, they’ll have to walk in front, which might force them so close to passing traffic they they are put in harms way. ALSO, do not block right-hand turning line in states where it’s legal to turn right at red lights. If possible move to the middle lane.

Tomorrow we cover Parking Lot Etiquette.

See you soon,
Teresa

I complain all the time about people who block intersections. Not only is it rude, it is illegal! The part that annoys me the most is when I patiently wait, then move forward when space becomes available and the person behind me moves into the intersection. Just last week, someone tried to pull around me when I wasn't blocking the intersection at a light. Unbelievable.

Abigail,
Courteous drivers are slimming in number. It has gotten terrible. Everyone cares about themselves and their own agenda.
I have seen accidents happen as drivers were trying to cross. I agree with you!

To offer a bit of encouragement, I must say that although traffic NEVER stops for pedestrians in the Michigan town I went to school in, drivers almost always allow them to cross here in Portland, OR!
