I have no idea what happened, nor do I really care all that much. But there is something about this that is kind of disturbing.
In response to ‘Mind Your Manners, Good Folk!” – Aug. 11 Letters – The coward whose name was withheld by request, get your facts straight before you make unsubstantiated allegations and think you were one inconvenienced by the “rude and boorish behavior of the two ladies …”
You say they “apparently arrived a few minutes before the concert and proceeded to neatly fold and set aside” your blankets. Did you see them do this? Did anyone see them do this? No!
Because I personally set up my mother and her friend’s chairs on Saturday evening ( without moving or folding and blankets or chairs.)
These two “rude and boorish” ladies happen to be Matriachs in this great city, residing here since 1950s, raising their families of six and eight children, attending St. Rita’s Church every Sunday and sacrificing many hours ( years) of dedicated service for many community events.
Yup, Sir (and I say this reluctantly), are the one who should be ashamed for your rude and boorish behavior by harassing and threatening them.
As for your ethical guidelines and responsible citizen remarks, perhaps you should take a look in the mirror and ask yourself if it’s appropriate to verbally abuse two very fine, morally upstanding women in their mid-80’s- with no basis whatsoever.
Could you imagine if people actually got as upset about unfair and dishonest taxation schemes or crumbling infrastructure as some do when squabbling over blanket placement at a Memorial Park concert?
