So totally hilarious! I like it!!
All that over an innocent thank you and a simple request?! Can we say waaaay overthinking the entire situation?!
Okay Herald, after reading these posts, does this change your mind?!
That correct. The Mexicans & Guatemalans on my husband's job got real pissed off when the new company came in and started taking taxes out on them. Some of them even left saying they couldn't afford to work there any longer. In that aspect, they are just like some of the "legal" Americans who are sorry workers.
Was going to do it once. Alligators made me change my mind!!! Big alligators and little boats are not a good combo! Kudos those who are gutsy enough!!!!
If they close the post office on Slappey and then succeed in closing the branch downtown...how many post offices will be left in Albany? They're closing down two Winn-Dixies, they've closed two libraries, downtown is going to heck in a handbasket and please don't get me started on the school system. What is left for Albany? And no...this is not due to any one race. This is a PEOPLE problem here. We need to get it together people.
We have businesses like this all over the place; especially up north. They have no problems. You can run up the truck, get your food and keep on going. The only bad part I can see would be inclement weather. Other than that, if the food is truly authentic...cool.
So you're telling me that if my friends and I decide to share a house I shouldn't be able to move into a neighborhood in the Rawson Circle? That's a really asinine comment. And not only would I let someone with that type of impairment stay with me, I have. He was no problem. They only thing I had to do was keep an eye on him. But having had children, this also was no problem. Obviously you have either no children or no compassion for humanity. I bet if you saw a stray dog you'd take him in. But wouldn't do the same for a human. So sad!!
It's not a funny story, but you made me laugh. For shame! :)
A lot of those people that are ending up in these personal care homes are persons that do have some sort of mental impairment. Not just mentally "ill". Some are just not quite "smart" enough to live on their own. I'm trying to be PC about it. It's not fair to throw them in a nursing home. They are usually more functioning than the average nursing home resident. They are not more apt to make problems than any other homeowner/family. To try and put them out of the way....that's the what people did to their "special" family members back in the old days. When places like Millegville (however you spell it) existed. They would go out perhaps once a month to visit them. That's not right. One would think that we've become more compassionate than that. Guess not. Today's people think, but a human being. My possessions are more important. And you wonder why we are going to heck in a handbasket!
