Selection criteria for lollipop (school crossing) people

Having had ample time to reflect on this while waiting interminably for school crossings to clear under the supervision of
lollipop people, the main selection criteria appear to be:

fat
mildly crippled in one or both legs
slow
nearly blind
borderline moron
full of themselves.

Although not mandatory, an inability to accurately judge a car's speed and/or braking distance will be well regarded, as will the ability to be completely random and arbitrary in interfering with traffic flow.

OK, I know they're trying to help the kids and they're not paid much and most of them are probably very nice peope, but a fair number of them are so bad they stuff up traffic nearly as badly as when cops take over from traffic lights.

You might like to know, they're the same here in the West.
Don't really know if it's a little power trip or just plain dumb.

Very funny you mentioned that, cos this lollypop bitch near where I live was giving me evil looks as I was braking to a halt, so I thought f*ck you hoe, and started reving the engine and returning the evil looks and then, when I was sure the road was clear of the kids but whilst she was still on the road, I sidestepped the clutch for a rather quick takeoff and the **** was absolutely fuming. In retrospect, I know it wasn't smart, but I was insulted by the looks she was giving me which I thought were completely over the top and unjustified. Hope she gets hit by a car.

A few years back a doctor, I think it was, was taken to court in Vic after he cracked it with a lollipop clown and kept nudging him with his car until he knocked the clown over.

This appears to be my duty statement, not sure how I got the job I'm not fat...
