Rant & Rants for Wednesday, February 13, 2013

VALDOSTA — I would like to thank Mr. Scarborough of Deep South Sanitation for coming up to the side of my house and picking up my garbage can on Monday when I forgot to take it out to the road. I live on a hill, and Mr. Scarborough and his daughter had to come up the hill to get the garbage can. He is kind and considerate, and when I called to thank him, he said everyone forgets sometimes, and he doesn't mind doing it. It is hard to find people who truly care about others these days. I am so thankful for Deep South Sanitation!

Raves to the group of girls that sang the National Anthem at the LHS basketball game Tuesday night. You did a great job!

A big thank you to Holly at Regions Bank at Baytree for helping me go above and beyond in helping me get a check cashed recently. Excellent customer service!

Great big raves to Brandon at Bruster's on Norman Drive. He was so friendly and provided great customer service. This brightened a very cloudy day! I love the raves on Wednesday. I hope more people take the time to compliment good customer service!

I had a prescription filled at Sam's recently for the first time. I must give a shout out to them for such great service. I will recommend them to anyone looking for a good pharmacy!

Thanks to the the ladies who work  in the flower department at Harvey’s for making a flower arrangement for me. They were so nice and kind and went above and beyond in making a flower arrangement for me. We need more people like you.

I just had my first experience at Stripped Waxing Salon, and it was amazing! They are so clean, friendly and knowledgeable you can't help but feel at ease while there! I am so happy Valdosta finally has a place that does quality waxing at good prices!

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!

    Some hillbillies have more money than you do, they just don't flaunt it. Most are hard working, good people, unlike the wealthier, selfish, spoiled, inconsiderate brats. You can lose all your money and education in a blink of an eye. Be thankful God has allowed you to be or have what you do and treat others as you want them to treat you.
