Share aloha, vent
your frustration

Happy Admission Day!

We'll let people vent their frustrations or share their aloha on this, the 40th anniversary of Hawaii's statehood.

Mahalo

To the passenger on TheBus Express No. 88 early on the morning of July 22. He or she found my wallet and turned it in to the driver. It was returned to me the very next day. -- Grateful in Kaneohe

Auwe

To the man in a white truck with his pre-teen daughter, who parked in the handicap space at the Ward Avenue Sports Authority. It was apparent that you do not have the proper placard and neither of you is handicapped. -- Anonymous

Mahalo

To everyone who stopped to help when my motorcycle went down on the Moanalua Freeway Friday morning, Aug. 6. I appreciate your concern and assistance. -- Deborah Kissinger, HPD solo bike

Auwe

To the person who complained about parked cars on Palolo Avenue. You should worry more about important things, like speeding cars, theft and drugs in Palolo. Learn to do better things for the community. -- No name

Mahalo

To the wonderful employees at the Ala Moana McDonald's, who went through three trash bags during rush hour on Aug. 4 until they found my daughter's dental retainers, which she had accidentally left on her tray. -- Grateful mom and daughter

Auwe

To the driver of a green van. At 2:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6, I was driving out of the McCully Times parking lot, when your van overtook my car and the car in front of me as we headed Ewa on Young Street. If you can't drive properly, please take the bus or have someone drive you around. -- No name

Mahalo

To Chris, a security guard, and Manny, a maintenance worker. On Saturday, Aug. 7, my car battery died as I was leaving a party at the Pearl Country Club. Chris and Manny, friendly and cheerful the whole time, got my car started. -- DCS in the blue Neon

Auwe

To drivers who use cell phones, especially at pau hana time in heavy traffic. Recently, a male driver in a dark navy BMW cut in front of me after crossing over three lanes. Another man, in a white Chevy truck cut in front of me on Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe without signaling. Both were on their cell phones and showed a total disregard for traffic around them. -- S.C.

Mahalo

On July 11, while stopped at a traffic light on Kamehameha Highway in Pearl City, a man walked up to tell us that our left rear tire was very wobbly. We immediately had the problem corrected at nearby Lex Brodie's. Thanks to our "road angel," a potentially serious accident was averted. -- White VW Passat

Auwe

To the person(s) who found my Canon EDS Rebel II camera at the Prince Lot Hula Festival and did not turn it in to the Moanalua Gardens office. Failure to do the right thing makes you a thief and you will not have good luck nor will the camera work for you! You can still do the right thing, no questions asked. -- Kumu Hula Palani Olson
