Minor Grumbling

I know it rates fairly low on the irritation scale these days, but Californians are still talking on cell phones while driving. What's the problem? Can't they figure it out yet? It really does cause accidents! And…now we can add one more cell phone problem that needs to be addressed. Talking while piloting a shopping cart. I stopped my car in the middle of the parking lot at Costco the other day while a shopper and his cart strolled directly toward me with the phone held to his ear. With just a couple of feet to spare, he glanced up and shifted direction. The collision was avoided but he never stopped talking. I wonder where he is now?

The California legislators have irritated me again. Our vehicle license fee has been doubled. But I'm not irritated for the usual reason, I'm irritated because they have returned the fee to the level it was before Arnold took over as governor. As soon as he took office, he promptly slashed the then current license fee in half to much conservative applause. But we thought there was nothing wrong with that fee? We had always budgeted for it and it seemed reasonable. So the fee is back where it was but now it's not in my budget! Idiots!

  1. It's not just Californians, it's everywhere.....they need to make it a LAW with heavy consequences before people stop doing it! :-(
