Rant & Raves for Friday, January 11, 2013

The Valdosta Daily Times

VALDOSTA — I love seeing only Raves on Wednesday! Maybe this will spread to the other days of the week! Most of the Rants are due to selfishness anyway!

To the guy in the red van trying to turn onto West Magnolia Street Tuesday afternoon — West Magnolia Street is a one-way! Read your signs. It’s drivers like you that cause accidents.

Hungry for some excellent seafood? Then Bubba Jax Crab Shack is the place for you to be! It is the best place to eat in Valdosta!

Welcome to the Dictatorship of America! First executive order to ban all guns, next wanting to repeal the 22nd amendment so he can be president for life.

Thanks to Tiger and crew at Pete's Otto Shop on Ann Street for their honesty, ability and professionalism! Thanks, guys!

It's great that so many Valdostans want to get in shape to start the new year, but please, please wear reflective clothing when it's dark outside! Too many invisible pedestrians on the road!

Thanks to Keith at Tire King. He is always very honest and knowledgeable whenever I deal with him.

All raves on Wednesdays is a nice idea. The problem is, it's just no fun.

Having seen how the VPD goes out of its way to protect runners during numerous 5K races, I find it hard to believe the VPD was targeting runners on Baytree. Were you doing something stupid? Were you running with traffic? Were you a hazard to yourself or others? Give me a break! As a long-time runner, I go out of my way to be safe and be courteous to others.

Seniors, be aware of scams. There was a lady in her 30s to early 40s standing out at  Sam’s Club on Wednesday asking senior citizens for money to go to Madison. When she left, she went toward Walmart and where the parking lots join, someone picked her up and they drove toward River Street. Seniors, please be aware.

Thank you to the gentleman that told me this morning I was almost as beautiful as his wife. It was such a sweet gesture and made my already bad morning a bit brighter.

Thank you so much for making Wednesdays for Raves only! That is so much more uplifting than seeing people bicker and complain.

Businesses that don't accept debit or credit cards are missing out. Most people don't carry cash anymore.
