Dears servers. My wife and I appreciate the hard work you do in providing us quality food and a relaxed meal service but … the next time you ask me if I’m done with my dinner while I am still chewing my food, I will stab your hand with a fork!

Peeved at the guys at the fitness center who slam weights like bombs. These are the ones who often strain like they are in the final phases of child birth, adoringly gaze at their muscles while lifting weights, and strut and swagger away like a hen who laid an egg. read more about For real?
What peeves me is when I'm doing 8 miles an hour or more over the limit and when I look in my rearview mirror, someone is riding my rear end too close and pushing me to go 100 mph. Just because you ride someone's tail, doesn't give you the right of way or that I have to move over. Slow down. Obey… read more about Just because you ride someone's tail...
To the Town of Davidson and the decision to make most of the available parking in Davidson “two hour” so it will be more “pedestrian friendly.” Are pedestrians even going to come if they can’t find parking and/or have little less than two hours to shop and dine? read more about Two hour parking to shop and dine?

With all the hype about all that the Town of Huntersville has to offer, how many people would take their out-of-town guests to the center of town and say, "This is the center of our beautiful town?"

This is my bad driving peeve for this week. When you are driving along the interstate highway, you might want tolook at that thing that is attached to your front windshield.

I, like thousands of others in the community, live more than onebut less than five miles from Birkdale Village. I would love to hop on my bike and go shopping or out to eat with my husband.

A block-long street in Davidson, despite signs on both sides clearly stating DO NOT PARK HERE, nearly always has the same cars parked there.

Why are cars allowed to park on Bridgeton Lane and other streets in The Greens at Birkdale for days on end without moving.

I would like for someone to explain to me why people walk/run/bike in the street, instead of using a perfectly good sidewalk.
