Letters: Get positive

Garbage and free roaming cattle get under letter writer's skin

On Friday, Oct 3 at 6 p.m. we were driving home on East Sooke Road when we saw 12 loose cows coming onto the road. In front of us was at least four cars who just kept driving by like nothing was going on. We stopped and blocked our car sideways so the cows couldn’t go any further. On that driveway, we asked the guy and he reacted with ‘They’re not mine’ so he jumps back in his truck not to do anything.

My husband who is a bull rider from Nayarit, Mexico herded them all back into their gate but I couldn’t believe the attitude of people. Like they just keep driving or can’t be bothered to do something. Is this how people are? Our road along with other roads always has garbage on the sides and the funny thing is that i see at least 12 different people walking or running daily and can you imagine not one of them picks the garbage up. Don’t they think anything when they see the garbage? Don’t they think I better pick that up. But again you know the attitude… It’s not mine. Unbelieveable!

Now when school was finally on again I was getting school supplies and thinking what a happy time this was.  In the aisles I heard two different wives yelling at their husbands. In the cashier aisle I heard complaining so negative and then behind me was a teacher who blurted out “I am a teacher and no I am not at all thrilled about going back .”

Can you imagine people’s attitude. Come on people enjoy your days your moment… we won’t be around forever. If you see a cow out get out of your car, if you see garbage pick it up.

And stop being so negative, your attitude is controlled by you.
