Orchids and Onions: Tuesday, December 18, 2018

December 18, 2018

Another beautiful day in Havasu...

Onions to construction contractors who take advantage of old or disabled people. They bid a job and take 1/2 the money up front but don’t do or even fish the job. Shame on you.

Orchids to City Councilman David Lane. Integrity, honest, has the facts, does the best for people of Lake Havasu City. An all-around good man.

Onions to the Onion about the center road dividers on Lake Havasu Ave. I applaud the city for installing them. I am tired of people making illegal left and right turns into a fast food restaurants around Mesquite because they are too dumb to come from the right direction.

Onions to the person who wrote onions to the store for not allowing them in early. You were without jackets, and had swollen bunions. The store is not responsible for your problems. You knew what time the sale began. You knew what the weather was going to be. You be more responsible in the future.

Onions to the onion about the bank teller asking for ID. Unless you go there daily, you cannot expect someone who deals with hundreds of clients every day to remember you. Besides, it may be a bank requirement. DQ

Onions to the young couple. I’m sure the 20-second delay you had during our honor mission thanking a patriot warranted the single digit salute from both of you. Grow up, be brave and join the military to find out why these troops are honored.

Orchids to Larry at Little Caesars for donating pizzas to celebrate the return of our local US Marine veteran at the American Legion. And thanks to all the motorcycles doing the escort.

Orchids to Lindsay and Michael at Famous Footwear for all of their help and honesty. They were both very professional and friendly.

Onions to people who use an ampersand instead of writing out “and.” It’s lazy.

Orchids to the nice young gentleman who offered assistance to my daughter and me when our car wouldn’t start Saturday night at Wal-Mart. Thank you for your kindness.

Onions on having the North Dakota and South Dakota mixer at the same time and place. Just like last year, talk got ugly between both factions. Does it really matter if South Dakota’s larger? In 2019, put South Dakota with Texas or Alaska. That’ll definitely shut them up!
