HF :: dancing traffic cop
Someone called in about HF. But it wasn't a complaint. It was to give compliments! A few days ago, HF had to direct traffic after a college basketball game. This person was a pedestrian and was impressed with his traffic directing skillz. I thought that was hilarious. I asked him if he wiggled his butt while waving cars through. I also asked him if he did any breakdancing or Michael Jackson moves. He said that one of the cops in the department is known for his "moves" in the street. He gave HF a few pointers on how to put on a show. These pointers apparently paid off! He got the pedestrians involved by having them boo cars that didn't follow instructions and that sort of thing. I think having some fun while directing traffic helps to ease the after game tensions or just the overall moods of the passengers and pedestrians while they are stuck in traffic. I don't have a video to show you of HF directing traffic, but check out this retired cop, Tony Lepore, from Rhode Island and his dancing cop moves! I love it.
