Vox Pop- June 28

Rude cashiers

Nothing says “We got your money now get out!” like having a clerk hand you your change and bills and while you rush to put them away, stand there with their hand stretched out trying to give you your receipt. They can obviously see that you have both hands busy yet they shove the ticket at you anyway. What are you supposed to do? Grab it with your teeth? Why do stores teach them to act rudely?

Scooters are dangerous

I wonder if parents realize how dangerous those little red and yellow scooters are that they let the young children without helmets zip around on? The children ride on sidewalks and streets without looking. They are going to hurt themselves or others. Parents, please take note.

What are we going to do?

I would like to know with the state shutdown, how will that affect the state workers’ pension checks? Are we going to get a pension check on July 1? I would also like to know how this will help anybody because there are many people out here that this is all they have to live on. There is going to be a large amount of people that are going to have no money to live on or to pay their payments. Where are we going to go and what are we going to do? I’m extremely worried about this.


The state budget impasse reminds me of two men standing holding hoops, each one telling the other one, “Jump.”
