Bad drivers get under my skin too but isn't this kind of... weird? Also, if they guy is postingRead More these to youtube, doesn't he need to blur the license plates?

Many truck drivers are using these to protect themselves in the event of a crash.

Awesome in the true sense of the word.

Their internal communications leave much to be desired. I respect and appreciate their hard work,Read More but the people in "customer service" are always given less info to work with than they used to receive. There needs to be a much better system to communicate to customers what delays may exist and why the do exist. The consumer's deserves better. Of course, we could all switch to solar back-ups, thereby lessening our reliance on a corporate monolith. No, not to replace. Not at today's level of technology. But as an option to power a refrigerator and a TV is doable with some recent advances. Watch it, Excelon. You could become less of a need and more of an option. Keep customers better informed.

The therapy dog ran from a neighbors' home? a block over? Who was watching this dog and why was itRead More at a neighbors' home?

See people always give Pit Bulls a bad rap. Every dog can bite and kill, not just the pit bull.

Hint for people commenting; a therapy dog is a dog that visits nursing homes and hospitals. MostRead More people here seem to confuse it with a Service Dog - which is a dog trained to help a person with a specific disability. Second - a borzoi should be trained not to attack pets... they can learn the difference between prey and pets - I know because I do train service dogs, including borzoi.

I have lived in Naperville for about 6 years now & love it. I love how people will sayRead More Naperville is snotty but yet they come to shop the stores downtown. We are snobs but yet on the weekends there are so many people from other area's coming into Naperville for the dining or to go to a bar that myself a person who actually lives in the town finds it awful to go into the downtown area for anything.

Where on earth do people not act out their fantasies? Snob is a term where people create their livesRead More based on how they perceive themselves to be. We all are actors on the stage of life.

Here's hoping folks who claim, "WE are snobs" (to folks residing in Naperville) and theRead More idea that living in a clean, small-crime, good schools location is "acting out their fantasies" will soon face life-lessons woven in realty; YIKES!
