Mailed bombs are frightening
What is the world coming to? Re: Couple pleads guilty to mailing bombs: Just a couple of years ago, people were cautious about opening their mail because it might have contained anthrax. We hear about people receiving bombs in their mail now. I do not know which is worse, but either could cause harm, not only to a family but also neighbors and friends.
I think this is so stunning to everyone because it is so close to home. Many people wonder, "what if this happen to me?" Many probably want to know what motivated the couple alleged to have mailed the explosives. I think they only targeted York County, but think about how many people could have been harmed from this, if the mailings covered a larger area. I think this couple will have plenty of time to think about what they did. They will have to spend the next 15 years in jail
People getting ruder these days
Has anyone other than me noticed how rude people are these days?
I mean, is there anyone else who goes to a grocery store or restaurant and gets a cashier who looks at you like you are crazy instead of saying, "Hello sir or ma'am, may I help you?'
I am so tired of going to these places and not even get a simple, "Thank you, please come again."
Did we not used to be known for our Southern hospitality? What has happened to that?
And if I go to another restaurant drive-through and my bag of food is hanging out of the window before I even get to it, I am going to scream! I know these places are trying to provide fast service, but accurate and polite service is worth more to me than getting my food in five minutes or less!
And cashiers, no matter where you work, please put the cell phones down when you see a customer approaching. There is nothing ruder than someone trying to ring me up and talk to their friends or family members on their cells about what happened to them the night before!
Please, people, can we stop with the rudeness and get back to what made the South special? It doesn't take much to smile at someone or ask them how their day is going. You never know who may remember you for your kindness and what you helped them with. Has anyone ever thought about that?
