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]

Here’s some Texas etiquette for all you native Texans out there (me included) or Texan wannabee’s. Men will always tip his hat or touch two fingers to the brim when he meets a lady on the street. No Texan will ever make fun of another Texan’s hat no matter how dirty or bent up it […]

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 […]
