Stars and Stingers: Apr. 24

Stars to the nice young man (with a skateboard?) outside OK Tire who offered to help me with my bike. Very considerate!

Stars to the Gear Exchange for letting me exchange my pack without a receipt.

Stars to the Source for helping me with my laptop, and for having their layaway system. Without that I wouldn’t be able to afford my PS3.

Stingers to the people at the store I was in. If you are hungry or thirsty, do you not drink and eat when you need to? You should be ashamed to deny a living creature water and food. You know who you are, and everyone will too.

Stingers to drivers who drive slowly in the passing lane, and then speed up when you try to pass them.

Stars to Joe D. for being so considerate and delivering a cake on Sunday morning.

Stars to the nice young man (with a skateboard?) outside OK Tire who offered to help me with my bike. Very considerate!

Stars to Personal Touch for being family friendly by asking parents if it’s OK to give their child a lollipop after a haircut.

Stars to the brave women who expressed themselves for the Clothesline Project and to all the people who came the GWRC barbecue to support the safe home program.
