I'm ticked off at two people who live in Deer Run in Casselberry . One, a dog person walks their dog, collects their BM, puts it in a plastic bag but then leaves it on the sidewalk or gutter.

"A certain yard sale ad read "hard time yard sale, everything $1 each." When I offered you 50 cents each for four items, you ran me off your property."

I hate garage sales because of people like you. This person is obviously having a hard time (ie the 'hard time yard sale') and is getting rid of stuff at what seems to be a good price and you try and nickel and dime him.

Also, to the person ticked about the bubble blower at the gym. Did it ever occur to you to ask him to stop? Geez people!

RE the cats; one more time, folks; if you keep your pets indoors they will not be hit by cars (unless they accidentally slip out when the door is open). Cats which are kept inside are far less likely to get hit by cars, less likely to get diseases, etc. It's too bad that these animals were killed but they shouldn't have been out on the road in the first place.

RE the yard sale; what part of "everything $1 each" didn't you understand?

RE the gum popper; arrrgh, I hate that, too!

To the cheapskate who offered .50 for the garage sale items, AFTER reading the 1.00 for everything sign - Do you feel the sign didn't apply to you because you're special?? Do you have some sense of entitlement? I don't blame the owner..I'd run you off too for trying to negotiate down from a whole dollar to .50 cents each!!!! You'd probably try to negotiate .10 down to .05 - you're as tight as a gnats chuff as the Brits say!

To the cheap skate at the yard sale.

Do you go in to Dollar Tree where everything is a dollar & ask the cashier if you can have it for 50 cents instead?? If you think paying a dollar is too much stay away from yard sales. I am having one in March in Casselberry...keep out!

"I'm ticked off at heartless jerks who drove down Northwestern Avenue at 60 mph and killed both of my beloved cats within four months. They just kept on driving."

I love cats, but why didn't you learn from the first death?!? You can't control stupid a$$ drivers, but you CAN keep your "beloved" cat indoors to prevent another horrible death. I feel sorry for you that you lost your cats, but you should be ashamed of yourself for the 2nd one dying. PLEASE learn from it this time. Keep them inside!

What kind of a jerk takes advantage of people having a "hard time garage sale" ? When I have a yard sale, my prices are low and what is left over goes to charity. Several years ago I had children's videos for 50 cents each..........there were about 50 videos. A woman and her child were sorting through them and selecting a few. An old man ( who drives around Altamonte in an old volkswagen thing ) walks up and said, "I will give you 5 dollars for the whole lot of them". I counted them and said, the price would be $25 "for the lot" and that the woman had already selected several. He got in my face and said, "here is cash..she hasn't pulled cash and I have !" I told him that I would rather GIVE them away than let him have them........

I am an animal lover and have my share of cats - INDOOR ones. If they get hit by a car, it's MY fault for letting them out.

I know if I hit someones pet and killed it even if it was an accident that I would feel so bad for doing that but at the same time if you keep your pets under your control then stuff like this is minimized.

What happened to personal responsibility???

Yeah and then he goes on E Bay and sells them for $5 each. I am glad you told him where to get off!

Dogs must be smarter than cats. I hardly ever see any ticked off items regarding dogs getting run over by cars.

On the other hand, maybe it's dog owners who are smarter than cat owners.

Now why does the driver need to be characterized as stupid ****? I highly doubt he went out of his way to hit the cat. Most likely the cat jumped out in front of him. Hardly makes him stupid ****. And once a car hits a cat, I think its a pretty good assumption that the cat is dead. So for the people that say "he didn't even stop!", what would be the point? To come say a prayer over the body?

"Personal responsibility?" What's that? Seems the past several years the trend in this country has been to make whatever happens in your life someone elses' fault. It's MUCH easier to blame the driver for hitting the cats than for the cat owner to admit to not caring for his/her pets properly.

If the driver was speeding and not going the designated speed limit, then that driver is a stupid A S S driver. And, for the record, I was referring to ALL stupid A S S drivers in FL not the driver mentioned in the original post. There seem to be a lot of stupid A S S drivers in FL. No wonder your insurance premiums are so high.

Oh, and I think the cat owner was a stupid A S S as well for allowing her cats to roam free. Happy now?

"It ticks me off that the weather forecasters get paid to miss overnight temperatures by 10 to 15 degrees. It is 30 degrees outside right now. The forecast was for a low of 42. What a joke!"

You do know that they don't do a personalized forcast for your location. It's usually at the airport or downtown. The temp can vary based on rural vs. surburban

Maybe to see if the cat was still alive and could be saved. I'd take it to the animal hospital myself. And, I would go back to the neighborhood the cat was hit to post signs about what happened and where the cat is. But, I guess not everyone is as compassionate and generous as I am to stop and try to save an injured animal.

Oh wow, give yourself an award...please, if I hit an animal why am I going to take time out of my day to take it to a vet and pay for it nonetheless?
