Pedistrians in the Crosshairs

A post titled  Caught in a Set Up describes how the Orange County Sheriff office set up a no win situation that culminated in my being ticketed for failure to 'yield the right of way' to a pedestrian. I ended up paying a hefty fine for my negligence.

What is the latest scourge on the roadways of Central Florida? Pedestrians.

Are they a danger to traffic? Absolutely. Are they a danger to others? You betcha. Will they be fined for their crime? Okay, now the questions are just getting silly. Of course they will. This is Florida, after all.

But, what crime will these wanton souls disregarding our safety be charged with, you may ask.

Texting While Walking.

There will be a ban on Florida sidewalks as of October from people texting while walking, due to the flooding of the local ER's.

No. I'm not kidding. Read the Orlando Sentinel article here.

Big brother is alive and well, and watching over us. Protecting us. From ourselves. Just don't text about it while walking.

The Bank

Today at my bank login page I was instructed to go through (another) security setup. You know, for my protection. Again.

So, the end of the form reaches the “Security Questions”. The text reads, “We will only ask these questions if additional information is necessary to verify your identity. Are you ready for Question One?

“What is your greatest fear?”

OH. MY. GOD. I don’t give anyone that information. What makes The Bank think I would tell them?

Perhaps it’s a test for just how deep they can rob me of my privacy. Just how much information will I give away?

What did I answer? NUNYA

Fashion Statement

Has anyone else noticed the latest fashion statement presented on television and in the movies? It’s a unisex design of shirts tucked in the front and left out on the sides and back. 

My husband has labeled this as a Fashion Mullet! Business in the front, party in the back!
