Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
To the guy at the intersection of Seminole and george today between 3:30-4:00.
I'm married to a wonderful woman who gave me 2 beautiful children and who makes sacrifices for her kids, her husband and her family. She wakes up early, stays up late and never complains, she never complains until today. She came home crying because someone in a red Ford car rushed her while she was crossing and you were trying to turn. The first 20 minutes after hearing the story I wanted to find out who you were and have some choice words for you. But I calmed down, and I thought I'll share this in hopes just maybe it reaches you or other people like you. She was crossing the street and she rushed her last two steps so to not make you wait much longer, you yelled out your window move that A$$ fatty. She kept walking and just pretended she didn't hear you until you were out of sight and then broke down all the way to the car, and home.
I hope you realize how wrong you were. I hope anyone who is young or old enough to read this, realizes how wrong it is to bully anyone.
Today, June.25 on Alsace Avenue I was waiting to turn into the full parking lot at the Windsor Cancer Centre. A place that no one parked in that lot wants to be. I had my signal on to indicate that I would be turning in as soon as the attendant gave me the ok.
You were impatient and honked at me to move. You had plenty of room to go around me. After you decided to use some common sense and go around, the passengers in your vehicle ( a black compact SUV) shot me the finger.
The cancer centre is not a fun place to go. I was going for my 15 month follow up appointment. I felt sick to my stomach and my anxiety was high. When I go for my follow ups I hold my breath and pray that I get good news. I fought a really hard battle and pray that I never have to do it again.
I hope that if you ever happen upon that situation again that you will think twice before getting impatient . Show a little empathy.
And, I hope for your sake that you are never the one waiting to get a spot in the cancer centre parking lot.
I found an iPhone and another case in a shopping cart at Zehrs (Tecumseh and Lauzon). I handed it into the office here.
this may be a long shot... we were in Windsor today June 23rd and my 2yr old lost her purple baby doll. We were at tepperman's, stopped near dominion and e.c row and went to tecumseh mall. She absolutely loves this baby and keeps asking for it and I cant find it at the store to buy another.
This morning I saw the most beautiful VW bus driving down Howard. I've been searching for one for my wedding day. I'm hoping I can find the owner and connect with them
To the stand up Man in the black GMC Sierra Denali pick up truck, at the Tim Horton's drive thru on Walker Rd, this morning (June 19/ 19) about 9:30am
I was behind you in the line, and you paid for my breakfast. I looked for you after, but you were gone. You have no idea how much that meant to me!! You absolutely made my entire week!! I LOVE the idea of a RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS and I do them often. I have never been on the receiving end of one. And to say I've been having a rough few weeks, is a total understatement! So this was perfect timing and I will continue to pay it forward!
Thank you 😊
To the lady who was exiting Zehrs yesterday (June 18th) on Lauzon Rd at around 4:40pm, who either jokingly or was serious when you said "Don't worry lady, i'm not going to rob you" actually really effected me afterwards.
From my point of view, this is what transpired.
I was leaving Zehrs, and i was deep in thought. My mum is in the hospital dying of cancer and I was actually debating if the 2 boxes of Chamomile Tea I bought her would be enough or should I head back in and pick up some more. I was also displeased because the second reason I was at Zehrs was to pick up formula for my baby and it was not in stock.
I noticed a person out of the corner of my eye and thought that I might have stepped in front of you because I wasn't paying attention. I looked back to make sure I had given you enough space to walk and noticed you were walking fast and thought you were in a hurry so I attempted to move over. You then proceeded to say "Don't worry lady, i'm not going to rob you". I was completely taken back because i had no clue what was happening. I tried to explain what was actually happening and you repeated what you said and walked away, but not before giving me a look of utter disgust.
Now i'm not sure if you were only joking or if you were serious, but I found it very hurtful and uncalled for. Your tone implied I was being racist in your opinion because I looked back and attempted to move over. I also had a short handle purse, and if my hand was on it (the same arm it was draped over), it was only to keep it from falling off my shoulder. Not clutching it because I thought you were going rob me.
Please be more careful in the words you choose to say to people, you don't know what their thinking or going through. I also apologize if my actions were misinterpreted, I was actually attempting to be polite but it did't come across that way to you. But you also cant bite off everyone's head who looks at you, that seems like a really stressful way to live.
Yesterday, my boyfriend (now fiance) celebrated our 5 year anniversary at my favourite restaurant, Red Lobster. He did the unthinkable and shocked me with a proposal that I thought would never happen. Another customer that was there at the time had paid $20 of our bill as a congratulatory gift for our engagement. If you happen to see this, please let it be known that you had made our day that much more special and it was VERY much appreciated! Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart! ❤
