Diner owners are doing their best

-A A +A

I would like to address the person or persons who sent the unsigned letter to the owners of Valley Diner.
Your intentions may have been “good,” however they were extremely hurtful and rude.
The owners work very hard to keep their business going and in today’s economy it is not an easy task. The owners donate things to the rescue squad, fire department in Elk Creek for the annual Rook tournament and for Dr. Harvey’s fishing event.
Even though it is a bad economy, they want to contribute to the community as best they can.
Shame on you for being so rude to these people; who are more than willing to help anyone out.
My parents have lived in Elk Creek for 32 years and have always worked hard for what they have and I am sickened to think that there is a person in this community that thinks like this. (Obviously, too highly of themselves and not enough about other people’s feelings.)
They work seven days a week and spend very long hours at the diner and the store to make their business the best they know how. You should be ashamed of yourself, no one but you and God know you typed (very poorly, I might add) and sent that letter because you were too much of a coward to sign your name.
I figure the person(s) responsible for this either doesn’t get out much or is just a cold-hearted human being. Well, whichever it is  — it is disgusting. If you think you can do a better job, then my advice to you is to go get a loan and buy this local business and let’s see what you can do with it.
I understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but when it comes to hurting people’s feelings — especially my parents’ — I will step in.
I chose to write this because my parents are two wonderful human beings and would not want to upset anyone, unlike you. My family and I will be praying for you.
