Are you kidding me

To the blonde lady driving a newer model black Toyota Camry, how do you sleep at night? As I was loading groceries in my car, I heard a loud crunching sound, looked up and it was you trying to parallel park in front of the Rosedale Dry Cleaner, as you pulled straight in you hit the drivers side… read more about Are you kidding me

Peeved with mail carriers

I'm peeved with the mail carriers around here. Last place I lived, the carriers walked 500-plus house neighborhoods in 90-degree heat or 10-degree cold, but here they can't be bothered to deliver your mail if they have to get out of the truck and literally throw packages to your porch from the… read more about Peeved with mail carriers

Please don't honk

Per North Carolina law, a vehicle may not turn right on a solid red arrow (NCDOT Traffic Ordinance Manual Ch4 S2). Drivers turning right onto Gilead Road from the I-77 south exit ramp – please don't honk at cars waiting for the red arrow to turn green. We are just following the law. It would be… read more about Please don't honk

Buyer beware

A customer was returning a defective product that was missing a part. She had the original packaging and her receipt for the purchase made one day ago. The clerk, as well as the owner, immediately verbally jumped on the customer. They said they never sold any defective products. They actually… read more about Buyer beware

How convenient for them

Just got back from student night at the high school with 2,600 students. The administration said they never want to hear from parents because they want kids to deal directly with teachers if they have a problem. How convenient for them. Now if my 14-year-old son has an issue with a 45-year-old… read more about How convenient for them

Don't make assumptions

To the peeved resident complaining about "special" parking spots for families at a local elementary school, you should ask the staff first about why the spots are labeled before making any assumptions. At my elementary school, there are two designated spots for two different families. These spots… read more about Don't make assumptions

Enjoys Peeved

I've enjoyed reading the peeved column. Now that the mayor is critical of it, I am totally devastated and traumatized. I get amused at some who complain about insignificant matters. And don’t see why anyone would care about what Jill Swain thinks about the feature. read more about Enjoys Peeved

Organize your event!

I went to a reading of Edgar Allan Poe's poems last week. I heard a practiced, if uneven, reading of "The Raven" and then the organizer announced that, due to a mix-up, the second presenter would also be reciting "The Raven." Why would they force us all to listen to his long poem twice? Organize… read more about Organize your event!

Peeved helps us sound off

So, Jill Swain, who is supposed to be representing ALL of the residents in Huntersville is peeved. And so she writes about the fact that she is peeved that the Huntersville Herald has a peeved column for residents of the area to sound off. So is it that only Jill Swain gets to be peeved and have it… read more about Peeved helps us sound off

Thanks!

Thanks to whoever made the decision to move the sign and barriers at the corner of Jetton and John Connor that were obstructing the view of oncoming traffic. You prevented many accidents from occurring especially with the early morning sunlight. It had become a dangerous intersection. read more about Thanks!

Favoritism?

Really?? I see at a local elementary school parking spaces with personal family names reserved for “special” moms who are volunteering to the school. Really?? Aren’t those parking spots a public place??? Why reserved for special families??? Who is checking this out making sure it is legal??? read more about Favoritism?

What a shame!

Looked forward to my two young grandsons visiting on April 18. Thought it would be nice to take them to a park and took a ride to Holbrook Park. What a shame! On the playground, there had to be almost 1,000 inchworms, lots of spiderwebs, and mud and dirt on all the slides. Sad the town let it get… read more about What a shame!

Who cares

What peeves me is Jill Swain – namely that she admittedly deters visitors from reading your paper because of the “Peeved” column. Who cares what Jill Swain thinks about your business – or what our neighbors have to gripe about? Given how The Herald promotes local events, business and news, why in… read more about Who cares

A shout out

I know it's getting to be bicycling season, and a shout out to those who are trying to keep fit, but please, I implore you, stay on the side of the road. No one wants an accident. I get it, share the road, but you pack riders, who ride two or three abreast and think you own the road, are just… read more about A shout out
