"Things I Couldn't Say" [aka Dear So and So]
Another installment of little letters filled with "Things I Couldn't Say" in person!
Please STOP changing things seemingly for no reason! For instance, uploading photos! It used to be easy....bim, bam, boom, and you're done. No more! I cannot post a picture even though I've tried and tried! You see, there are NO INSTRUCTIONS! No tutorial. No Help. No Hints even! I would like to inform you that there are still a bunch of us out here who were not born a part of the computer generation. Everything new you come up with is a struggle for us. Could you, please, maybe remember that and give us dinosaurs a break????
I don't know why I can't get my new photos to post. My frustration level is outlined clearly in the above letter to Blogger. I will keep at this til I get it right, but I guess today may not be the day. I'm going to take a break now, but I SHALL RETURN with photos in place. (I hope!)
Dear Retail Stores,
Today is October 12, 2010. It is 2 weeks BEFORE Halloween! It is too early to be putting out your Christmas merchandise!! The Christmas Season is long enough! We don't need it in mid-October!
Still stuck in Halloween,
For those of you who drench yourselves in heavy, overwhelming perfumes. Would you please cut it out!! You may think it makes you alluring, but really all it does is annoy the crap out of everyone who comes within 15 feet of you!
Dear CVS stores,
Just wanted to compliment you on the brilliant idea of having the Minute Clinics in your stores. Practically everyone has a minor medical or health situation/question from time to time. The alternatives, e.g. doctor visits or calls, ER visits, urgent care centers, free clinics, etc. are all much too expensive and busy to deal with my minor little something. Minute Clinics are a wonderful idea whose time has come! Good job!
Dear Legislators (both incumbents and wannabees),
As mid-term elections loom, may I suggest that all of you take a couple of hours to re-read the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble and Constitution of the United States plus the accompanying Bill of Rights!
Perhaps that will remind you that once you are elected, your job is to REPRESENT your constituents, not the Lobbyists, not the special interest groups, not the Fanatics, not Big Business, not the money-people, not any specific industry, not even your own Party! You represent the people who put you in office and who can just as easily take you out of office. Why don't you try listening to us for a change?
Please read the above and vote accordingly!! It is our duty and our right! Don't blow it!
