The other day, I was waiting to cross a street near me that I cross almost every day. This street has a regular traffic light. When you are blind, you listen for traffic patterns. When the cars travel in the same direction you wish to travel, you go forward. Or at least in my case, then I tell my guide dog to go forward. The other day, I could not hear a pattern in the traffic. I stood there for a while listening. Then, a man crossed the street and told me that the lights were on flashing cycle. They were not working. Thanks to him for helping me solve the puzzle in a kindly and straight forward way. He also asked if he could help and how best he could do that. Great that he talked to me like a competent adult and did not try to pet my working dog! Thank you so much whoever you are! Made my day!
