Pesky kids again

Not just one but two of them aged about 9 and 11, on bicycles, up Peckham Rye, carefully cycling on the pavement, and not only did they see someone coming towards them but they STOPPED till the pedestrian had passed! Then if that wasn't enough they wanted to cross the road! They actually got off their bicycles at this point! Can you imagine. Did they just stroll across amongst all the traffic all dangerous and scary like? Did they heck! NO! They walked the extra couple of yards and actually waited for the cars to stop at the zebra crossing! And they had to wait ages because car drivers can be evil and nasty, stupid and mean, of course. Yet when the traffic did stop - did our pesky evil selfish mean and thoughtless kids crawl across with their bicycles? NO! They walked swiftly across AND EACH OF THEM THANKED BOTH CARS EITHER SIDE FOR HAVING STOPPED FOR THEM! I tell you, kids today, etc and so on. Their parents should be told of this. There were no supervising adults in sight. I was shocked.
