Speakout: May 19, 2013

Tips

I just returned from a local pet grooming salon and had my pug bathed. The young lady was wonderful with my dog. Don’t forget to tip those wonderful, hard-working ladies. They do a great job.

Tests

Parents need to be made aware that teachers are putting an extreme amount of pressure on these kids about state tests. My child is terrified that he may be put into AIS if he fails.

Homework

I was shocked by the amounts of homework my child had during the couple weeks of state testing. Teachers send home letters saying to have the kids relax and be a kid. They can’t when they have hours of homework.

Marriage

Today’s young people have it backward. You get married, then you have the baby. Think of the child before yourselves. Ladies, if your man really loves you he will honor you. Men, step up and be men willing to respect and care for your woman and child.

Businesses

If your company gives priority to people who call as opposed to people that walk in and talk to your representatives at a desk, I will do business elsewhere.
