Speakout: Feb. 3, 2013

Appointments

If a doctor calls patients to reschedule their appointment, the rescheduled patient should not be told there are “four people ahead of you.” Furthermore, the rescheduled patient should not have to wait an additional two hours to be seen by the doctor.

Bingo

The secondary smoke is out of control again at the bingo days in Altona. They forget to turn on fans, and small children are sitting right in the middle of it. It is as bad as smoking yourself.

Walks

Jeers to the City for not clearing their walks per the local ordinance, for example South Catherine Street along South Acres Park. It is now Jan. 2, and it has yet to be cleaned from the storm of last week.

Rooster

Rooster starts crowing anywhere from 4:30 to 5:30am, it’s becoming a nuisance. We like to sleep with windows open. We do not like waking up at 5 a.m. or sooner.

Commute

During the morning commute on Route 9 between Ausable Chasm and Plattsburgh, please be considerate of other drivers. If you feel unsafe traveling at the speed limit and you notice a line of 10 cars behind you, please pull over.

Flags

Community leaders should consider portable fluorescent flags within bins on either side of crosswalks for pedestrians to utilize so they can notify traffic (flag them down) as they cross the road acting.

Calls

When a customer has called and left message, you might want to consider calling them back. It’s very rude for any business to not return messages.

Behavior

Why do parents allow their children to fool around, wreck public property and run up and down aisles in stores? Yesterday, two 5- or 6-year-olds were smacking each other with merchandise and the parent stood by and watched.

Class

School gets out at 2:30, not 2:50. I am a parent who has to go back to work at 3 after I pick up my child from school. I was not the only angry parent who had to wait in the cold until the class was released.
