Excuses and Frustrations

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Thanks to you for trying to advise your people that they are bringing so much harm to their selves and their families, and their lifestyle by the “finger pointing, but not my fault” attitude that seems to be corrupting, nay, ruining your country.

Let’s see – my electric bill went from $200+ dollars last month to $400+ this month even though my power was out more than ten times in that time.  The grocery gives me bonus dollars – I built up to $47.00 only to have it disappear and even though I pointed it out, no one got back to me.  Oh yes, and then there is my bank.  Three years ago they charged me over $3,000 in wire and money transfer fees and actually told us more than once that they had made a mistake – never saw that money again or got an answer – thanks.

And what is so sad is that we love it over here – have met people like Rex at Abaco Gas, Ian at the grocery, the girls at the back check-out desk at Standard, the great guys in Bristol’s, that epitomize what a Bahamian should stand for and be proud of, and do.

And so, after seven years we are headed back to the states, weary with the double talk, still seeing no hospital built and wondering if our guys ever got their money for trying to build it – we thank them for building our little place . . . thanks Brian.

Such a wonderful place, so much beauty; so sad, so little else to say.

Keep trying, maybe your one lone voice will make a difference.
