Cellphones in restrooms? Not funny. Dog poop on jogging paths? Not funny. The movie “Borat”? Apparently, not funny.

“Cellphones do not belong in public restrooms! Three times recently an occupant of a stall near me has answered her phone. Did you wash that cellphone after you were done? Do you really want me to know about your biopsy, your boyfriend and your dislike of another person? If one can’t wait two minutes to return a call, I suggest one needs professional help.”

“A big rave to Craigslist for keeping unused items out of our landfill. We are moving and have been able to match up items we may have thrown out to people looking for them.”

“A big rave to the driver in the white truck who blocked the other drivers with his truck and allowed me to cross the ‘river’ on Mercer. I was anticipating another shower when I saw the cars speeding through the Mercer flood and spraying the sidewalk. Thank you again! Signed, a warm and happy pedestrian.”

“I just saw ‘Borat’ and it was a waste of $6.50. The movie is full of … stupid potty humor. Save money and look at the short clips on your computer.”

“A colossal rant to all of the inconsiderate dog owners who still refuse to pick up pooch’s poo-poo. Thanks to you, I had a great time washing the stinking mush out of my running shoes and carpet today. I hope that each of you steps in a huge, steaming pile of it on your way to an important event. Splat!”

“A big rave to the Waste Management employees working in my neighborhood on this rainy day! Their driver noticed a large puddle starting to form and he stopped his truck to help. He looked in his truck for something to scrape the leaves off the clogged drain. Even in the downpour and with their tight schedule the Waste Management driver took time to help us out. Thanks.”
