MONday was one of those days people crossed my path and violated my rights, it happens to all of us. I'm not the only one, but now in my older age, it's painful. In the past I kept my mouth shut and did not protest, but I can no longer do that and I won't.

I was walking North on Milpas approaching the Milpas UNDERPANTS when I noticed the sidewalk was completely blocked by 2 men in wheelchairs: a dog, a woman standing up talking to the 2 men, and a patio umbrella. The only way through was where the dog was laying and I cannot lift my feet up far anymore. If the dog was to get nippy my leg is in bad shape and one little nip could take it out so I walked on the curb next to the bike path on the outside of the rail. As I walked by the woman was complaining about, what else, but residents of Santa Barbara being unaccepting toward their needs, Typical. When I got to the otter side of the UNDERPANTS I pulled out my cheap ass non-Obama phone I paid for myself and pushed in the numbers 1-805-897-2300. It answered "You have reached the non-Emergency number of The Santa Barbara Police Department If this is an Emergency dial 911." I hung up.

I went into Rite Aide grabbed a cart put my cane in it and rolled to the pharmacy to get my medication then I picked up a few things, then I headed for the line. You know the line where you wait to have a cashier check your items and you pay and leave the store? Yea well that was where I was waiting, in line there were 2 women in front of me so though my leg was in rough shape I really did not mind waiting though it took a few moments and those moments felt like a lot longer and I was in agony. I do not use pain killers as I hate what they do to my body, they really don't do much for the pain either. So there I was waiting and holding myself up with the grocery cart. I looked behind me and there were a few other people waiting, another cashier was opening up to get us out of there quicker then I noticed her, a woman cutting the line not looking my way but at all the people in line then back at the cashier with a sly smirk on her mug. I snapped, it happens sometimes, it cannot be helped in my Beast North West Indiana accent my voice boomed, "Lady there are people in line here, you're cutting in front of all of them!!!" She squeaked out "The cashier is helping me." I said "OK." But it wasn't OK for her to cut in front of everyone, not OK at all especially when some of the people were older and limping like myself and she was Bright Eyed and Bushy-tailed in youth and perfectness.

I got my stuff checked through and paid for it. I took the cart back to where it came from near the front door and was taking my stuff out of it when I noticed little Ms. Sneaky out of the corner of my eye looking at me and doing these Spastic Hokey Pokey Psycho movements women do just before they melt down into an NBD or Nervous Breakdown Land. Some people really hate to be wrong. I left the store and headed home when I got to the Carpinteria Roundabout I looked down the street Eastbound because even though I had the right of way I did not want to get run over. There she was running sideways almost in a Gallop looking back at me in Fear as if I was going to reach 150 feet down the street like Godzilla and grab her. Funny how someone violates others, gets caught then somehow becomes the victim. I noticed her floating toward my bank, I had seen her there before then I realized "Shit there goes my account." I thought aloud. When you're young everything seems wonderful, when you're old everything seems to turn to shit. That's my Milpas UNDERPANTS and I'm sticking to them, more so nowadays.

Well that is all for the Scanner Reports for now. I wanted to mention that I stopped going to therapy a while back, I really did not think I needed it compared to others who do. I get depressed but I'm not suicidal or Homicidal. I'm always talking to myself, and my cat, and fish. I don't feel weird at all, freaks the neighbors out some though, when I'm angry I talk like a hitman, blowing off steam is all. I'm completely comfortable in my insanity and I do not want to share. If you see me with a bottle of Vodka and a shovel then you can worry, by the way  Smirnoff is on sale at Rite Aide this week.

Here we go again, 300 block of W Pedregosa! Things were quiet for awhile, after they were seemingly on the scanner reports regularly and we thought thank goodness maybe they got rid of the problem persons, but seems like either they didn't, or they're back, or someone else now is there. Maybe the Landlord is the problem-renting to undesirables.

And speaking thereof, you never read about dust-ups and fracases any more in the 1600 block of Chino Street. Maybe they took their drama to Pedregosa?

Roger, It's fine to talk to your cat and the fish, it's when they start to talk back and have a conversation you'll know may have a problem.

They could be a full-time person to check the welfare all around the $.99 store, that place is insane I’ve never seen anything like it with the behavior of the individuals that go in to that store. I would deem that store unsafe for children and single women. As for the Milpas incidents I appreciate your story, I get it. People have no consideration whatsoever, are constantly starting the problems and playing the victim. Unfortunately they have no responsibility and apparently people are raised very poorly anymore.
