Raves for Wednesday, December 4, 2013

VALDOSTA — Editor’s Note: In 2013, Wednesdays will be  rave-only days. Thank you to our readers for your support.

I want to send a big thanks to the man who brought us Thanksgiving dinner to the store Thursday evening.  It was so nice to think there were people who take the time to show that kind of kindness to those of us that have to work on the holidays. We want you to know it was much appreciated. God bless.

I want to give a HUGE rave to the employees of Toys-R-Us. I was shopping on Black Friday and the store was packed with customers. Each employee I had an interaction with was so polite. Each employee spoke as they walked past me and you could even hear them on the walkie talkie jumping to help each other. True customer service at its finest.

Thanks to Ashley and Don for making my experience of buying a 4-Runner at Toyota Nissan. I had a wonderful experience. Thanks!

Thank you to Austin, waiter at the new Waffle House on Bemiss. Thank you  for taking your time and being extra nice and special.

A big thank you to the lady who paid it forward at the Lake Park Vet's office. My cat didn't make it, but you made me have faith in humanity again.

I just wanted to give a huge thank you to Cody from Outback Steakhouse. He waited on my husband and I this past Saturday night. At the end of our meal, he thanked my husband for serving our country. What an amazing young man, not even Veterans Day and yet still thanked my husband regardless.

Thank you to whoever donated the pink Barbie dream-house at Repeat Boutique last Tuesday. It made a mother and two little girls very happy!

    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.

    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!
