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!

    If zoning is there to protect the businesses and residents who are already there, why is the Lake Park elected officials wanting to approve a change that does not benefit the people who are already there? Shame on Lake Park mayor and council.

    Valdosta Daily Times, you have done a remarkable job in keeping our community posted about the waste treatment situation. Please look into our gasoline crisis situation. I just returned from Florida where I bought gasoline 20 cents per gallon cheaper than what is being charged in Valdosta. Something is wrong with this picture.

    I want to thank Brittney who has been my family’s favorite waitress at Cheddar’s since they opened their doors. Saturday night was no exception. She never lost her composure while I witnessed some crude treatment from the customers seated near us. Keep your head up.

    VDT, please refrain from posting gun control comments. My son and I were at breakfast and he mentioned the low price of assault rifles at a gun show. I said that I was opposed to these. Two fellows overheard this and on their way out, the larger one said that I sounded like some the "communists" writing against America in the newspaper. He said that if were up to him I would be “lined up.” He got into a dilapidated Dodge pickup with anti-Obama, pro NRA, and a Baptist Church bumper sticker.

    It wasn’t  Remerton where  the rats were escaping to Azalea Drive, it was  from the raw sewage. At least  they are smarter than people.

    Thomas Jefferson said that we don't keep and bear fire arms for any other reason than to protect ourselves from tyrannical government action. That is why the liberals are trying to suppress Christians’ freedom of speech and why the government is trying to label gun ownership as a bad idea.

    The Swiss issue all adult men a firearm. Owning a gun does not condone, or create, violence. Lay blame on the person not the tool. If you really believe that banning firearms will end the violence you are sadly misled. All that will happen is law abiding people will not have guns and the criminal (who doesn't obey the law anyway) will.

    I don't know of any gun owners who fantasize about being "the good guy with a gun." Just when you think you have heard the most ignorant statement possible, along comes one that tops them all.

    Monday, I observed a woman at Walmart getting into her car, with two boys around the age of 8, one of which seated a young infant on his own lap in the rear seat, not using his seat belt. As the lady began backing out, I jumped out of my car and asked her to put that baby in a car seat. Stupid! Please, parents, don’t have a kid, if you don’t care to put them in a seat belt, or wear yours.

    To all Facebookers: You look like idiots when you post these “dares” of jumping in cold water or pictures without makeup. What do you think you are accomplishing? Absolutely nothing ... Send money to support the organizations and then you will be making a difference.
