FAVORITE PHOTO OF THE WEEK:
A friend came to visit for a few days and we did a tour of some local landmarks ~ still working on the post to go up, but love this picture!
EYE CATCHING BLOGS WORTHY OF A DEEPER LOOK:
Still trying to get organized for the move so have not done as much blog hopping as I'd like. I promise I will be so much better after the move.
ON MY MIND LATELY:
Just seriously wondering when so much of the world lost its common sense and kindness? And let me tell you why - The local Walmart has a McDonald's "restaurant" in it. I often pop in for a large ice tea before doing my shopping since it has been so hot the past few months.
Multiple times there are people having a meal in there and they have their Chihuahua with them - this dog has been riding in the child seat of the cart and is now in the booth with its paws up on the table top eating food from the table top.
- Forget that common sense tells you to leave your dog home and the fact that you are supposed to have service animals in vests and carry their certificates with you in case you are asked to provide proof.
- Forget that they sell food both in Walmart and in McDonald's and that they have been toting this dog all around the store in the "CHILD" seat of the cart.
- Forget that they are not the only family doing this.
- Forget that the county when called will tell you that the establishment whoever they may be has the right to refuse service if the certificate cannot be produced.
I'd finally had enough and went to speak with the Store Manager (multiple times) for Walmart about my concerns for the health and safety of everyone since these dogs are being taken through food areas and their owners are touching the produce and such and the animals are sitting and licking carts in places that while not always clean are used by adults and young children and their official stance is that if they ask the people if they are service animals and they say yes, then it is a moot point. They are not "allowed" to go the step further asking for the certificate of proof. The manager suggested I also speak with the McDonald's manager which I did.
Are you ready for the real kicker here? It was bad enough that Walmart would not deal with this issue, but the McDonald's Manager though sympathetic told me his hands were tied. McDonald's official stance is that it is a violation of their "civil rights" to ask them to comply.
WTH?????? WHAT ABOUT THE CIVIL RIGHTS OF EVERYONE ELSE TO SHOP AND EAT IN A SANITARY ENVIRONMENT????? THESE RULES EXIST FOR A REAL REASON!!
COMMON SENSE and LOGIC as well as society and today's parents as they raise tomorrow's adults. From what I've seen this weekend alone, SOCIETY IS DOOMED if we don't make some changes AND MAKE THEM SOON!
