Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
For anyone having a less than wonderful day, here is a feel good story for you. This morning I called several different Subway's to order lunch for a group of staff and volunteers who run our Holiday Program at work. I connected with a Subway store owner named Jay at the Tecumseh Mall/ Tecumseh Home Depot location by total luck. The order was well over $120 but I only had a budget of $75. This money was raised by youth that participate in fundraising for our agency and advocate for other children. When I tried to figure out a way to bring down the cost of the lunch he asked me who I was feeding. I told him it was for a group of people volunteering their time to package new toys for less fortunate families and would need to order an entire lunch, right down to drinks and cutlery. He put me on hold to organize a couple different menu's that would suit my budget. Moments later he came back on the phone and offered to pay the difference of my original order himself, only charging me $74. I was shocked and kindly accept his generosity. When I arrived to pick up the food he gave me his business card and said he would like to continue supporting us and to please call him again if I ever needed to provide more food to staff or families in the community. He also packed extra subs for me in case anyone wanted second helpings. I was so touched by his generosity. I then made my way over to our Holiday Program to deliver lunch and stopped in my tracks at the amazing sight of kindness our city has shown. The warehouse was LOADED with toys, clothing and household items larger than any department store I've seen. All these gifts were donated by our community and it gave me goosebumps to witness first-hand what wonderful humanity we have in our own city. It's easy to get caught up in the negative especially during the holiday season with the pressures that come with it. Sometimes we all need a little reminder about the good in the world and how we can be a part of it.
To the ladies at Dulux Paint on Dougall, thank you for your awesome customer service, you exchanged a paint sheen for me and tinted it a fantastic green. Gave me prime tips to get the exact colour I wanted.
I found a small bag with several types of gem stones in it. Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot, there are two names on bag. Tell me the names and I will gladly return them to you.
A very big thank goes out to the Met Hospital team. I have had a bad kidney stone for almost a month that just would not go. The staff and surgeons that I saw were all very friendly and compassionate people. I thank each and every one of you I know your jobs are very tough but hang in there sending you all my hugs Thank you again
I was on the Ottawa bus on Sunday heading downtown to renew my bus pass when the driver of the bus pulled over unexpectedly. It wasn't until he ran off the bus that I noticed an elderly lady had fallen across the road. He helped her up and to another bench. He came back to the bus and made a phone call, and went back to her for a few minutes while waiting for help. If that wasn't enough, I got the same driver later while going home. This time, he had an elderly lady going home with a lot of groceries. I know he didn't stop at the normal stop, instead, went right to her apartment. He asked if any of us would mind him helping her up the stairs. He then got off the bus, walked her to the door and upstairs. About a minute later he returned and carried about his driving. You have been spotted driver, it's nice to see people helping people.
Sincerely, a happy rider.
My family was at Moxies this evening November 29th and experienced exceptional service. A family member has some severe life threatening allergies and when ordering explained this to the server. The restaurant staff went above and beyond and informed us that they had double checked all ingredients to ensure the food could be safely eaten. The food was the best and the service was award winning. We will be back to Moxies very soon and often! Moxies, you've been spotted.
Lost our sharper image drone tonight in the area of labelle,curry, and McKay streets near e.c.row.. if found my nephew would be so happy..small reward if found
I just wanted to say thank you to whoever paid for my lunch today at Joses.
Me and my little guy were out and he was so hungry.
He can be a handful most of the time but today he was particularly well behaved, which made my experience great and then to have my lunch paid for made it even better.
I'm not sure who you are but thank you, and I will be sure to pay it forward!
Have a Happy Holidays :)
