Missed Connection

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Me: Pink haired girl in the tan Oldsmobile heading east on 2nd Avenue, a
one way arterial, driving about 32 mph, enjoying my day. You: a middle aged
man in an older truck, short hair, sunglasses. You were driving at quite a
responsible speed, but the only problem was it was directly perpendicular
to how I was travelling. I slammed on my breaks and came within a breath of
connecting with you. Your face was peaceful and contemplative as you drove
through the intersection.

Shame On You

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the parents and six obnoxious boys I had the privilege of sitting next
to at the Lilac Parade. Every single one of you disgusts me. Not only did
your boys hit multiple patrons with their football prior to the parade even
starting (including a retired Marine and police officer), but you just sat
their and ignored it. As the parade progressed, these boys became more
disgraceful. I, along with everyone else around me, had had enough by the
time these idiotic boys of yours had ripped their shirts off and went
running up and down the road. To my surprise, you gave them money upon
their return. You paid them to act like asshats. The topper of your amazing
parenting skills was when the friends and families of fallen soldiers were
marching with photos of the ones they lost and your disgusting boys had
removed their shirts (again), were dancing, and throwing poppers at each
other. Multiple times they bumped into the people marching. Their lack of
respect made me sick. What is wrong with you and your kids? How can you
condone their actions during such a sensitive moment of the parade? If this
is how you allow your hood rats to act in public, maybe you should all stay
at home, and spare the rest of us.

Crazy Driver

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Jeers to you in your nice new Cadillac as you passed me in the right hand
lane driving 90 m.p.h. through Post Falls, I enjoyed your single finger
salute waving repeatedly out your window as I traveled at 3 miles over the
legal posted speed only to see you gain three car lengths when you caught
up to the rest of the evening traffic. I wish many speeding tickets for you
and your shiny black penial compensation. My hope for humanity has dropped
another notch thanks to you.

Park Responsibly

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



I am all in favor of everyone who needs a handicapped card for their car to
have one. Please remember that when you park to use your card responsibly.
Do not leave someone in the car. It doesn't work that way. If you are not
taking the person with you, you are supposed to park in a regular parking
area. All to often the person who needs that spot can't use it because of a
failure to read the brochure. Thanks from someone who used it for their
elderly parent.

For All The Mistakes

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



I have made in my life, for every bad decision that I have made, for all
the pain I have gone through and for every obstacle I have encountered. I
would not change a single thing in my past because the paths I chose to
take at the time, led me to you beautiful. The love I have been waiting
for, the love I have always longed for and the true love I honestly thought
couldn't exist. The "one" true love does exist! Shame on me for letting
that love fail. Shame on me for not realizing what I had and that very few
people get to experience in a lifetime. I wish you nothing but the best and
maybe someday things can be different and you would let me be the one to
take care of you for all your life. Your sunshine will always be with me
and in my heart. Love you!

School Fundraising

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Jeers to parents and schools who send children out into the community to
sell things door-to-door to raise money for sports, trips, extracurricular
activities, and such. If the parents cannot afford to, or are unwilling to,
pay for their child's activities, why do they think strangers such as I
would be so inclined to pitch in? What's most irritating is that these
children usually ring my doorbell just as I am fixing or eating dinner.

RE: Dear Wonderful Friends

Posted on Sat, May 25, 2013 at 8:24 AM



The jeers you posted about your friends bringing your son to church made me
cringe, and I too am a non-believer. You say that you respect and cherish
them, and you obviously trust them considering you let your son stay with
them, yet you act like they put your son in harm’s way (they did not). Your
comment is littered in contradiction: freethinkers, humanist, and
positively free from fears of fictitious biblical elements; I’m going to go
out on a limb and say you are delusional in your thoughts of yourself.
Blasting these people for an innocent evening at their church? You are the
type of Atheist that I despise; you fall right in with the “holier than
thou” type of church goer. Your last statement about their “Imaginary God”
was below the belt. I think you need some lessons in freethinking, and
being a humanist, because those involve appreciating people as a whole and
not their beliefs. I hope your son will someday be able to know about all
religions, so he can independently make up his mind about what he, as a
human, wants to believe or not. "Be the change you want to see in the
world."

This jeer specifically goes to the "wonderful friends" mentioned in the
jeer. (you who did the jeering may stop reading here.) Now, as I understand
it, you're devoted Christians hanging out with "atheists"
and "freethinkers"... Yeah, this is not a good idea, as they will never
understand your servitude to Christ. And will ultimately sway you toward
disbelief in an effort to "liberate" you from what they see as tyranny. I
mean, take a look around you. The world is just what was said it would be.
As it is , we're mostly seen as fools to them anyway. So it's probably just
as well should they continue to ignore God as they may never have any true
understanding anyway. We know different. So, please, stand solid. Evermore,
those of us here in the "cloudy abyss" would like to encourage your faith.
But also to warn you to not marginalize what you've come to trust and love
and to also bear in mind Matthew 7:6.

My Sweet Lilly Jo

today my love for you grows. My desire to be a better man, to be more than
I've ever been before fuels me with each awakening to seize this day and be
all that I can be. We don't get these days back and I am glad for each one
I get to spend with you. Your Kevin
