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!

    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.

    Bring back Ronald Reagan, he cut taxes and only raised the federal debt limit 17 times to do it!

    It’s a shame to work for someone who gripes all the time. Never a “How are you” or “Thanks for your hard work!”

    I think that all facilities owned by the city and county should have signs banning firearms in the buildings. I don’t feel safe if a firearm is there when I am there.

    There are some wealthy physicians, business owners in this town who target only certain demographics for their business, and reject competition and growth. With the new statistics of a shrinking Valdosta, I hope you and your selfishness are quite happy when your comfort zone disappears!

    Chaining a dog 24/7 is nothing short of animal cruelty. It is time for our elected officials to pass a law against it.

    Just announced in Atlanta that Valdosta came in first in the state for percent decrease in population for year 2013. Albany was No. 4. Do you suppose the City School System demographics have anything to do with this. City folks may not think consolidation was so stupid when we start playing in region A.

    I truly believe if we are forced to accept Obamacare, then all the physicians should be  forced to accept it.
