Rants and raves

Comments from our readers:

THIS IS A RANT for all consumers who buy products from any store. It is very rude to drop your money on the counter and expect the cashier to pick it up. If you want someone to give you good service, put it in their hand.

THANK YOU, IHOP, for coming to south Augusta. We are looking forward to you opening your doors. IHOP has the friendliest, youngest and the prettiest waitresses in town anywhere and they have a great super breakfast and all the pancakes you want. They are the best in the world and we can't wait till you open.

AUGUSTA-RICHMOND County government: Stop being gas guzzlers. Buy your own gas.

I HAVE A RANT. My daughter is at Merriwether Elementary School in Edgefield County and I think it's pretty sad all the kindergarteners had to bunch all their parents, grandparents into their classrooms for the end- of-the year ceremony while grades first through fifth got to have theirs on stage in the lunchroom with the principal recognizing each of them. That wasn't fair at all.

REGENCY MALL BEING turned into an outlet mall is a great idea.

JUST A SHAME Augusta Symphony has to start an instrumental fund to honor somebody that got slain at a drug deal. Why don't they establish a fund in the name of the late Harry Jacobs? He did more for the Augusta Symphony.

THIS IS A RAVE for Famous Dave's take out. This is especially for Fred, the manager, and Joy, the worker. Thanks for the good service after the problem we had on Memorial Day.

I AM A FIRM BELIEVER that violence never solves anything. I also believed that someday someone would punch Woody Merry's lights out.

TO THE THREE MEN in the Ford F-150 who jumped out of their truck to steal 11 rolls of roofing felt out of my car while I was walking to the middle of the bridge on I-20 trying to get the rest that fell off the truck: I hope you that stealing made you feel like real men. I'm sure someone other than me saw you.

HOW IRONIC THAT state test scores from English classes have plummeted. Consider that the courses are now, apparently, called "English language arts." That's a redundancy it itself. Maybe the "educators" need to study up first.

WOODY MERRY IS a bantam rooster who wants be a big boy someday and can't figure out how.

jd, I think you're wrong

jd, I think you're wrong about that. There are many people out there, me for one, that just do not like Waffle House or Huddle House for various reasons (too small). I like the atmosphere of IHOP so much better and think they'll draw a good crowd daily. At any rate, it is another choice for people who want to just get a bite to eat. Thank you IHOP for locating in South Augusta!

A comment concerning the Augusta Symphony rant. Why not a fund for people slain durring drug deals? The city erected a statue to a convicted felon. Granted this person was musically instrumental but he WASN'T a native Augustan.

I went to IHOP on Washington

I went to IHOP on Washington Rd awhile back.The seating was cramped,the floors filthy and the waitress and cook was not wearing a hairnet.I couldnt force myself to eat. The waitresses were just standing around talking. Noone cleaning anything.My family and I just left.

I am thrilled about IHOP coming to my area. Waffle House is ok but the menu never changes and I can't stand all the order "hollering". It will be my Sunday morning tradition.

A rant to all cashiers that just stick the change due in your hand. I realize the most registers subtract the amount due from the amount tendered but am I just to assume you can count. I count it out to you- you count it back to me. God forbid I go somewhere where the amount due is $1.52 and I give the cashier $2.02 and they don't have a register that subtracts.

I hope the South Augusta IHOP

I hope the South Augusta IHOP is better than the Evans one. It takes nearly an hour to get served and the wait staff is in need of some serious training. You have to go find them to get a coffee refill.

Yup, I'm ready to go! I didn't even have to go to IHOP to get it. Up until now, every comment on this page is related to today's rants and raves. I guess "critical reading" is not a skill required by the unions.

Trouble - We'd have to sign

Trouble - We'd have to sign up, take a 4-year apprenticeship and pay dues to use it probably! And only a stewart could tell us how much we were allowed to comment. Once you get to your quota, no more for today! Don't show up the other posters or "they'll" expect it from everybody!

Well, nobody "punched"

Well, nobody "punched" woody's lights out! It was a shoving match and he fell. And if someone tries to break into my house and harm my family while I'm at home, you'll see what violence solves.

It rarely happens here, more

It rarely happens here, more so in the summer. All the college and exchange students trying to sell magazines or get you to take a research survey. I did give a bottle of Gatorade to a really cute 19 y/o Czech girl last week on a very hot day with the agreement that she not to try and sell me anything. I offer cans of Budweiser and Marlboros to the Jehovah's Witnesses, that works pretty well too.
