Tuesday Talkback -- Lights Out Edition
|In the time you spend reading this, you could go claim your $25 or more...|
In the meantime, I'll talk back to some moaners.
“People that ride around when it’s dark without headlights. Why don’t the cops watch for them and give them tickets? It’s very hazardous.” — Mayfield Heights
The police do ticket people for this. But what amused me was this next moan:
“The inconsiderate Plain Dealer carriers who pull in the driveway in early morning with their headlights on and the radio blasting. Not everybody’s bedroom is in the back of the house or upstairs.” — no city
I suppose the carriers should turn out their headlights up the street before they pull into your driveway to deliver your paper? That's looney. If you find it to be such a nuisance, then cancel your subscription.
“What has happened to all the simple services? I couldn’t find a pay phone at Parmatown mall so I could call my son to pick me up. I’m 85 years old and I no longer drive. I don’t own a cell phone, cable or computer because I’m only on Social Security and can’t afford it. At least in the malls and stores there could be a phone or two. Please give the elderly a break and help us to get along on our own.” — no city
Help us get along on our own ... by providing us with stuff. I suspect if there had been a pay phone, the moan would have been over the cost of a call. And what was a broke and helpless old lady doing at a place like Parmatown anyway?
