MONKEY SEE, MONKEY DO

Have you ever noticed how people follow others lead, even when they don't realize it?

I was driving the 18 just getting onto the Nicollet Mall when I noticed a ton of firetrucks blocking the entire mall between 5th and 6th streets. I called Control and told them I'd have to go off route and would go over to Hennepin on 4th street and come back to the mall on 6th if it looked like I could. As I was approaching the mall on 6th street, there were even more big ladder trucks and emergency vehicles just past the mall. We were sitting at the red light waiting to turn onto the mall. A bunch of us on the bus were trying to guess what was going on. We noticed a lot of people looking up at the skyscraper that was surrounded by the emergency vehicles. I twisted my neck to try to see as far up as I could. Many people on the bus were trying to get a good view too...all of us looking up.

I realized what a funny sight this was. The people in the front seats and I shared a laugh. There didn't appear to be anything to see. No jumper. No flames shooting out. Just a bunch of people on the mall looking up. We finally decided they were all looking up for the same reason we were. They saw other people doing it! Made ya look!

Monkey see, monkey do!
