Mail Call for 11/8



Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line.

Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236.

You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out.

Here are some of the calls we have received lately:




"The two cars that were parked during the parade were not on South Potomac Street. They were in the 600 block of Potomac Avenue in the North End of town. They were not towed and everyone was warned and if they weren't off the street they would be towed. They were not towed."




"Why do the tellers at banks call people by their first names? We are total strangers and I at 67 years old am being called Helen by a 20-some-year-old. Why doesn't the bank management instruct their employees of the proper business etiquette when dealing with the public?"

"We always enjoyed listening to Randy on WQCM, here in the office every day. Since Randy is now gone and the format has changed, we now listen to Mix 95.1 FM in the office all day."




"I want to know if someone could tell me how you can tell if a ring is 14 or 10 karat gold without damaging it, without taking it to a jeweler."




"To the man that said he didn't agree with the $2 million for a dog pound. No Way. All you have to do is visit the dog pound a couple of times in one week and if he had the $2 million dollars he would donate it himself. Just to get more spaces for the depressing things that you see at a dog pound."




"To the garbage men that picks up the dumpsters in the Halfway area. I want to thank you very much for your extra effort and consideration in your early Saturday morning pickup. I really appreciate it and I am sure that the other residents do, too."




"Everyone out there thinking about getting a pet. Think about how you would want to be treated as an animal. If you cannot treat a pet, kindly, responsibly or lovingly, you should not own one. Get your pet spayed or neutered. If everyone treated animals like a member of the family, we would not need all this money for the SPCA."




"I read about the person who said that trick-or-treaters should be under 10 and not the 11, 12 and 13 year olds. There is nothing wrong with the 11, 12 and 13 year olds trick or treating. They like the candy as much as the younger ones. What about all the parents that have the babies in the strollers? The babies aren't eating the candy, it is the parents eating it."
