Bazzo Says: Things that tick me off

Bazzo Says:


• Why when you go to the self-checkout line in the grocery store and there is only one customer in front, that person is an idiot? It never fails. 

• Why is it that when you are standing in line at the regular check out, you watch as the person in front of you does nothing while the cashier rings and bags all the groceries, and after all is done, then and only then do they start looking for how they are going to pay for it?

• Why is it when someone disembarks from the train do they then take out their cell phone and try to contact the person they are visiting to find out where they live? What the hell have they been doing for the last hour?

• Why do the police not enforce biking laws? The most dangerous people on the road are bicyclists. They think they are above the laws because they know police will do nothing about them.

• Why do pedestrians think they have the right-of-way when they come to a corner of the road they wish to cross? We were taught to look both ways before crossing. There was even a public service commercial with a catchy jingle I can still recite to this day to enforce the notion that one should wait until cars pass before crossing.

• Why are people such pigs when they use a public restroom? Do they think they are the only ones who are going to need the facilities? Do they plug up their own toilet with paper at home? Stupid parents produce stupid kids.

• Doesn’t it tick you off that the local Dunkin’ Donuts charges extra for butter when you order a buttered bagel? Shouldn’t the $1.05 for the bagel at least cover the cost of butter?

• Where are the cops when motorcycles weave in and out of traffic and drive between cars on the highway?

• A commentator on a local online newspaper was right when commenting on a story about the recent four-car crash that killed three people on the Taconic State Parkway. The reader wrote that the State Troopers have lost control of the parkway between Route 202 and Millwood. 

• Police can make their entire budget in tickets just on cars that block side roads and entrances on Route 6 any day after 3 p.m., but especially on weekends.

• They can make even more on cars that cut in line on the hill leading up to Lexington Avenue from the Cortlandt Town Center.

• Or how about cars that make left-hand turns going down the hill on Route 6 from Lexington Avenue to Locust Avenue, even though there are enough signs prohibiting it?

• Don’t you think it is hypocritical to get a ticket for talking on your cell phone when you see these same police talking on theirs?

• Don’t you think it is hypocritical when you get a ticket for coming to a rolling stop at a stop sign when these same police do the same rolling stop?

• The A&P is going bankrupt for one simple reason: Their sale prices are still not better than the regular prices at Shop Rite or Stop & Shop.

• Don’t you just hate it when you are engaged in a conversation with an elected official and someone comes up and starts talking to them as if you are not there? Worse is if it is another elected official.

• Why do people think it is a good idea to walk on streets or ride bikes on street at night in dark clothes? Again, stupid parents produce stupid kids.

• When did stop signs and signaling before a turn become only suggestions?

• Why do people think once they stop at an intersection they can go, even though there is oncoming traffic? Last I looked the car already on the road has the right-of-way. 

• People who leave cell phone messages asking you to call them back, and when you do they don’t answer.

It is the dog days of August and I had to get this off my chest.

This is what I say. What say you?
