About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

[When Randy isn't whining about noisy and rude people, he dreams up designs in his studio at Hill Design Studios. A native Texan, Randy resides in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with his wife Dawn and four cats]

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

In preparation for the Beijing Olympics, Beijingers have been given the word: clean up your manners. Excerpts from the official pamphlet lay it on the line: “In conversation, wear a smile, don’t stare too long or do anything to make people feel ill at ease,” it says. “Before you help [a disabled person], first of […]

Low blow.

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Is there nothing lower than attacking a handicapped person over a parking space? I think not: Vancouver police have arrested two men they suspect of attacking a woman who used a prosthetic leg in a dispute over a disabled parking spot. The suspects, 41 and 34, allegedly slammed the woman’s car door on her leg […]

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Monday, July 7th, 2008

I went to a restaurant in Salem the other night. A group of people (four or five) were right behind me. I opened the door and held it open so they could enter first (being the southern gentleman that I am). Guess what? Not a single thank you was uttered from any of their carpetbagging […]

Obivious etiquette tip #2,348. Don’t talk on your cell phone during a meal out.

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

The couple were sitting in the restaurant a few tables over from us. The husband/boyfriend/significant other was talking on this cell phone, which, by the way, is rude in itself. The wife/girlfriend/significant other was blankly staring out the window at nothing in particular. This went on for the entire meal. The couple’s future certainly doesn’t […]

Grocery Shop Carts To Entertain Kids? Hate ‘Em

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Excuse me while I have a little morning rant here. I hate, yes, absolutely hate grocery shopping carts shaped like animals, cars, trucks – whatever. They are way too long and intrusive and just aggravate the heck out of me. Seems like such a little thing, I know, but somehow my mom managed to go […]
