Today I took a walk with my son in the stroller up third ave. We stopped at the corner of Bay Ridge Avenue and 3rd Ave for the light. There was a crossing guard yapping away on her cell phone. There were young children crossing the street against traffic and she was still talking. As she is talking she is also using her hands, a young child, at least of age 9 was crossing the street, behind the crossing guard. The child had just taken a step onto the street as a car came. the crossing guard (still with the phone TO HER EAR) yells at the child to pay attention. She must have heard me say 'excuse me" cause she turned to look at me. As the light turn she finally got of the phone. I am not sure how to report this to her supervisor but I figured to notify anyone that has a child that goes to school in that area, to please be aware of this woman. I'm sure she is very nice and had every reason to be on the phone, but she is getting paid to protect our children.
