Funny is when people are waiting at the lights for the little green man and he never shows up. They have got used to NOT pressing the button and then find themselves at an intersection that requires the button to be pressed for the green man to do his thing.

The lights go green, no green man. They then look a little sheepish and then press the button, and then having to wait till the next cycle for Mr Greenman....
