Rants and raves

  • Follow Metro

Comments from our readers:

WHILE READING the Rants & Raves this morning I suddenly felt like I was in the zoo and all the monkeys were on the outside calling in.

IF OUR COMMISSIONERS don't get busy and try to work with the Medical College people to make some more room down here, they're going to end up in Athens.

TO THE PERSON complaining about Bush and the war: I don't want war, either, but at least he's not a coward like Clinton. They bombed the Towers and the USS Cole and Clinton was too busy with his sex life to protect the country.

FOR ALL THE Southern belles who keep calling me "Honey" or "Sweetie," I would prefer "yes" or "no." I don't like it and neither does my wife.

A HUGE RANT to just about every food delivering business in the city of Grovetown.

TO THE WRITER who said Abe Lincoln had nothing to do with the Civil War. That is like saying that King George had nothing to do with the original American Revolution.

DAILY POLL: What do you think about the early start to the 2008 presidential race? How about stupid? Take some of the millions they spend and help our troops.

I AM A NAIL TECHNICIAN who loves to do pedicures. Just a strong reminder during flip-flop season: Please, please, please, get a pedicure before subjecting the whole word to nasty cracked feet!

Hello Honey: Yes you should

Hello Honey: Yes you should go back to wherever you came from and NO you should not stay in the South because you don't have enough class.

To the (man) that does not like the southern bells calling you names other then yes sir or no sir, Tell your wife to get a life. If she is that jealous of some woman and makes you feel bad enough to call in a rant you need to get a backbone or go back up north

Thank you "honey" for fixing

Thank you "honey" for fixing the comments postings. You know, when people move here to the south, they need to try and adjust to southern culture. People here have passed down traditions for generations and that includes calling people honey and sweetie. All one has to do is politely say they prefer to NOT be addressed that way in conversation and I am sure, being the courteous southerners we are, we ladies will comply. We do ask, however, ...if you aren't getting that pedicure, please keep your feet covered. I hope all ya'll have a good day! (It's a southern thing).

I'm from the south, and after

I'm from the south, and after having lived in California and overseas, my main complaint with coming back, is how long it takes to get something done with some of the people here. When I go to Lowes, I don't want to hear the life story of the guy that is selling me a refrigerator. I don't like the casual attitude that alot of clerk types have. I don't care that it's hot outside. Just please do your job, and let me get on with my life.
That and I used to be proud of the confederate flag, until I saw the class of people that fly it around here.

I can't agree more, there is

I can't agree more, there is nothing worse that seeing someones nasty cracked feet and dirty toe nails sticking out of their flip flops. except maybe an empty doughnut box or spilled beer.

Vulvan, when you can sand

Vulvan, when you can sand your car with your feet before you paint it, it's time for a pedicure! Tell your woman to take you to get one... LOL ...I doubt she's gonna bite your toenails for you!

a rant to the nail

a rant to the nail technician, if you wouldn't charge $30 or more for a pedicure only for the polish to last only two to three days tops, then there might be more pretty toes and non-cracked feet in the world

I swear I painted my toes

I swear I painted my toes last weekend, worked in the yard, jogged about two miles, and played in the dirt with my 5 year old, and they have not chipped at all. The last time I had my toes done, they lastest I swear only two days. I went to the lake after I had them done, and they started chipping. Wonder what the difference is in their polish and the ones that I use?

I use "sweetie" and "honey" all the time up North and have yet to meet anyone who doesn't love it! It's so much better than being called something mean isn't it?

well, the main diff. is the stuff nail techs use have the following chemicals in them: acetonitrile, benzyl chloride, cumene, cyclohexanol, 1,4-dichlorobenzene, epichlorohydrin, ethylene dibromide, 2-ethoxyethanol acetate, furfural, isophorone, 2-methoxyethanol, 2-methoxyethanol acetate, methyl chloride, and phenol. Not sure bout it, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night!
