Old habits

So although I was in the US for just 2 years, I walked a lot there. I’ve gotten so used to pushing the button for a “walk” sign when I cross a road, that the few times I need to cross a road here in India, I always look instinctively for the post where I can push the button!

Of course, I always looked the wrong side when trying to cross too, but I lost that habit pretty quickly. Evolutionary adaptation? 😉


  1. A girl from my university was studying abroad in England when she was hit by a bus and killed while crossing the street.
    It seems every once in a while that kind of thing happens, because people look the wrong way before they cross.
