Yeah gue... empty boxes. Why if u finish something won't u throw the box away? And u know what else is peeving? When u raise angelic little boys who can do no wrong and they turn out to be hairy men with grown men habits that drive women up the wall. I thought I was rearing enlighten men, but they r typical males in a lot of ways that I just didn't see coming? RRRRR I love all u guys

Default Fixin' things. . .

that ain't broke!

More out of curiosity than anything else, I went to the HOA Board meeting, poolside, on Friday morning. Wish I had stayed home because the pool's parking lot came up for discussion. Board members want to put up a sign that reads, NO overnight parking.

Parking at the pool has not been a problem, mind you. NOT parking at the pool has made it easier for whatever *thugs* to hang out, smoke, drink, break beer and wine bottles, and leave a general mess for someone else to clean up. Other peeve: this, with five trash cans, and one very large recycle can sitting in the lot, generally less than 10 feet from where the trash is left.

Anyway, I stuck my head in and offered my two cents' worth: that if there was a problem with someone parking consistently in the lot, that individual could be dealt with, uh, individually.

Many of the neighbors and residents like being able to use the lot for out-of-town guests, and there has yet to be a shortage of spaces for people coming to the pool, or spending time on the small children's playground next to the pool. The people who have parked overnight are also most considerate, and tend to park away from the pool and playground, and keep the entrance clear for day-to-day traffic.

Sorry, Guys. I had to get this off my chest. I've been asked to post it on the neighborhood website, but am hesitant because then I feel like Mrs. Cravitz from the Bewitched! series.

In defense of the kids leaving the empty box, I, too, was MOST GUILTY as a child. It was because I couldn't win. If I ate the last of something, and threw the box away, Mom would see it in the trash, and holler, "Hey! Who ate the LAST of the *whatever*?, " and we, generally me, were in trouble for that.

Sometimes I get so peeved when I have a day all planned and either one person, or one thing completely throws the whole day out of whack.

My family has learned the hard way about empties in the fridge...

Yep. Like when some people in particular go into my store, find a clearance item that we already knocked down tov half price ( like a 200.00 ceiling fan marked down to 99.00 and these pelple think we're an auction. "Ill give you 25.00 for this!". WTH??? Heck even as employees we don't even get that kind of a break!
