|Tis the season for more Talkback to Monday Moaning.|
"Save the trees. Since many office workers are frequently away from their desks and unable to answer their phones, we should make fewer desks, therefore saving lumber and trees." - Mayfield Heights
If you were calling me at work to offer that inane observation, I would be away from my desk too.
"It's so irritating to go to shopping centers and malls and see the employees take all the close parking spots. That should not be allowed." - Cleveland
Yeah, and you know what really irritates me? When late at night the workers walk all the way back to the dark part of the parking lot where they get attacked by people lying in wait -- usually by people harboring a grudge about some petty grievance like having to walk an extra ten steps to buy their holiday trinkets.
"What happened to the separation of church and state? Heavily laden political ads with religious overtones are totally offensive and should be avoided." - North Ridgeville
Uhhhh, the political season is over and the "holiday" season is here. I know you are confused but I assure you -- the little guy in the green tights next to Santa is NOT Dennis Kucinich.
"Radio stations that insist on playing Christmas music an entire month before Christmas. Some of us like Christmas music, and we don't want to get sick of it." - Kirtland
Uh, change the channel? You know what, I kinda like Evanescence, but when they played nothing but "Going Under" for a whole month, well, I got sick of it. That's what radio stations do. That, and cower to the FCC.
"Why do they keep the lights on at Browns Stadium all night during the week? It just seems to me a tremendous waste of energy and, you know, those high-powered lights aren't cheap to run." - North Olmsted
As a season ticket holder since 1999, let me tell you: having the lights on during the game is apparently a waste as well.
"Why is it that people think you have lost your mind as soon as you reach 70? I don't think so." - South Euclid
Buick in the driveway, Viagra in the nightstand -- why wouldn't we assume your brain has gone soft too?
"Why do police in Seven Hills leave their cars running, with no one in them, sometimes for an hour at a time? It seems a terrible waste of city taxpayers' money." - Seven Hills
You know what is a waste? Watching an empty police car running for an hour. I wish I had your free time.
"I have always bought American cars and have nothing but problems. But my friends buy Japanese, and only have oil changes and one set of brakes at 115,00 miles. I will never buy another American car until they learn how to build a quality product." - Seven Hills This again? Jeez. Here is what you do. Next time you want to buy a car, figure out what kind of car you need. Don't buy a roadster if you have kids to cart around, and don't buy a truck if you never have to haul anything. Next, do your research on the quality of the various models (foreign and domestic) that suit your driving needs. Write out a list of these cars, and do some research on the invoice price and any incentives the dealerships are being offered so you can negotiate your best deal. When you're finished, throw the list away and email my girlfriend, MJ. She sells BMWs, and daddy needs a new pair of shoes.
