Okay....Some pet peeves!

Here's a question for you all out there in blogger land.  Why on earth do people put rv parks next to train tracks?  Why?!  Rvs are not like houses with good insulation and double or triple paned windows.  There is seriously a trend.  There has only been one rv park that we've stayed in that is not near railroad tracks.  Granted it was near a shipping lane so that we did hear the loud fog horns from the huge tankers.  (sounds very close to a train horn.)   Anyway, just one of those questions that I know I won't get a clear answer to.

Also, another rv park one....  Why do people play their music in an rv park like they live out in the middle of nowhere and their neighbors live at least a mile away?  Again, insulation!  The bass especially penetrates the inner sanctum of the rv.  I just don't get it!  I mean there are kids trying to sleep, people sleeping who have to get up at the butt crack of dawn to go to work.  I'm just saying....

Is it just me or are there a lot more people running red lights lately?  Maybe its just the places we've been, but good grief!  I think people just have a death wish or something!  Seriously, if you are in that much of a hurry, call 911 and get a police escort!  People just don't think of anyone but themselves!  The thing is running a red light cuz you don't want to wait through the next light might mean that you have made the decision for a baby to die, a mother of two or more, a husband, father...just think about it.  Ya know?

One more thing and then I'm done for a while....  What is the deal with customer service people who don't speak english?  Look, I love different languages.  There are several that I would love to learn.  I'm also not aiming this at any particular people group.  Here's the deal.   We are having trouble with our satellite tv.  I call in to the TECHNICAL SERVICE department to get some help with trouble shooting.  The first guy I could understand about half the time and MY questions never got answered.  I call in again about an hour later.  Different guy, still couldn't understand him and he couldn't understand me.  This is not the first time I have had to deal with these problems.  I know all the technical terms and even what was not working properly.  I just needed to know how to fix it.  The problem I had was not with the people themselves.  I want to know how on earth I am supposed to receive technical assistance from someone who is not fluent in english and apparently doesn't know anything about the equipment or how it works?!?!?!?!?!  That would be like me knowing the tiny amount of Spanish that I do and having next to no knowledge about the equipment and trying to explain to someone about their satellite tv in Spanish!  It would never happen!  Now why is it happening in this instance?  Why is the company hiring people that don't know what they are doing and are not able to fully communicate?  GGgggrrrrr!   

Okay, I'm done now:)

OKay this is vanerrsa- giving you a clear answer to your first question. RV parks are not known for their high value real estate. Therefore, they are going to put them on cheap land and trains run through the cheap land@!!! stank nasty no good- we have a train going through our neighborhood too :) Umm yeah - those birth control pills are bad. never have taken them- never will- our church has counseled against them for years, but still people be takin' 'em. and I"M OUT!! sorry for the marathon comment--- and I keep going and going and going- and I"M OUT
