E2 Orlando Sentinel ^ B C D E WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2000 _J J The Daily Dose 'Thunde:rstorms,' cashiers, phone books, bad fllrnlture I'm ticked off at local TV meteorologists predicting "thunderstorms." There are rainstorms, snowstorms and hailstorms. There is no such thing as "thunderstorms." Thunder is not a thing; it is a sound produced by lightning that splits the atmosphere. The appropriate term is elec- trical storms. I'm ticked off at the uni- form manager at the hotel where I work. He did not have the foresight to have long pants for everyone working outside on a 35-degree morn- ing. I am ticked off at cashiers in supermarkets who are too busy carrying on conversa- tions with the bag persons to pay attention to totaling up my grocery bill. That's my money they are adding up. I am upset with Bell South for not getting reliable people to deliver the new phone books. They are not being put by the front door. They are placed on the edge of drive- ways and half out in the streets, in piles of sand, dirt and in fire-ant hills. Tele- phone companies should check out who they hire for these jobs and find out what a sloppy job they are doing. They're talking about $140,000 of taxpayer money for all this Florida recounting. I wonder how much recount- ing we'd have if the parties in- volved had to pay for these ex- penses whenever they ask for a recount and it came out the same way. I'm ticked off at a furniture @#$& Ticked Off! *%#! ImPs Call 407-872-7200, Cate- gory 9155, whenever you want to gripe, grouse, whine, belly- ache, condemn, dress down or blow up -- whenever you're Here are the rules: Keep it brief. Keep it clean. No cursing, please. If you're going to identify s column, company. They promised me everything when I bought the furniture. It started falling apart a week and a half after it was delivered. I was told: "Sorry; you bought it; you signed for it; it is no longer our problem." What ticks me off is penny- off and dollar-off prices. Only an idiot would think that $9.99 is not $10 and $999 is not a $1,000. Also, the fact that gas is priced at $1.48 and 0 of a cent per gallon. This is false advertising because we do not have tenth-of-a-cent coins in this country. Therefore, we cannot buy at advertised pric- es. I'm ticked off at movie the- aters. When I take my kids to PG movies I see advertise- ments for R-rated movies that are inappropriate or gory. Stop that. I'm so ticked off I can't find any Hanukkah decorations in Orlando. Jewish people do live here. The Flip Side I wanted to thank the gentle- man who helped me in Winter Garden. My granddaughter was choking on bubble gum. He helped us but got away without us thanking him. Thanks to all the kind doctors, nurses and folks who have helped me while l've been sick. Also to my wife, children and grandchildren: You've all been great. l'd like to extend a thank you to my husband: Thank you for our great life going back and forth to winters in Florida and summers in Long Island. Thanks for every- thing. I love you. I want to say thanks to a nice woman who helped me out: I'd locked my keys in my car and the motor was running. She took me home so I could get my second set of keys. I'd like to thank Tracey D. for her effort to bring back rock to Orlando. : Consumer Line Wednesday: Ticked Offl Thursday: Consumer Line Friday: Ticked Offi Saturday: Help Me, Hildi Cool Toy of the Day I Today',, i Hot List SCOOTER TATTOOS Scooter Tattoos Scooter Tattoos, $12; available locally at WaI-Mart, 7-Eleven Santa will be lugging a mess o' in-line scooters this Christmas, but some children might find their new steel horses a tad bare.
