Lack of regard for others
This to the individual (individuals?) who felt entitled to get into my locked car in a parking lot in Canton and steal from me. How nice of you to leave some of my change scattered about my seats. Having a great spending spree with the (maybe) $2 you made off with? And that iPod touch? I’m sure you know they’re not cheap - that was a splurge and reward for me. Thanks so much for just taking it, as well as the FM adapter and my phone charger. Ha, bet you’re having a fantastic time with my purse, too. All that makeup looking good on you?
Talking to wrong people
Oh my God, people, quit your complaining. Get off your duff and go to a meeting and voice your opinion instead of complaining. Make yourselves heard, you are complaining to the wrong people. Talk to your legislators, let them know how you feel. My spouse is a county worker and believe me they don’t make much money. We live day to day and our land taxes get raised every year. So we do without some things. So suck it up and make a meeting.
