Rant To my neighbor for keeping his newly adopted dog sitting in a fenced backyard like their last dog, who spent 15 years bored, barking, not being walked or played with or taken to a dog park or disciplined in any positive way. A dog shouldn't be owned for a nightly 10-minutes petting session it desperately awaits, spending the rest of the day and night neglected and alone. Why did you ever get another dog?
Rave To King County Metro Customer Service operators who found my wallet lost on the bus, tracking down the exact bus I had gotten off, letting me know minutes later they found it and it was on a bus that would arrive shortly at the Transit Center. One hour from the time I'd left the wallet on the bus I had it back and could not have been happier!
Rant To the Seattle School District for holding multiple, back-to-back high-school graduation ceremonies at Memorial Stadium. The stadium is in disrepair, traffic was horrendous because the graduations were scheduled so closely together, it poured down rain so the graduates got soaked and the bathrooms were beyond disgusting. Way to end a 13-year journey through the Seattle schools on a low note.
Rant and Rave Rant to the person who called my daughter on her lost-pet ad on Craigslist, not once but twice, saying he had her dog and was going to kill it. A big rave to the nice stranger who did find and return our dog the very next morning.
Rant To Pacific Science Center for charging $6 a person for the audio tour of the King Tut exhibit. After paying $150 for tickets and parking for our family, it should have been included in the entry fee so all visitors could enjoy the exhibit equally.
Rant and Rave Rant to the drunk woman on the train loudly harassing me for nursing in public. Rave to the lady next to us that said "That is what they were made for, don't let her bother you, sweetie." Really people, that is what they're for and what would you rather have on your train, a nursing baby or a crying baby!?
