Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
I left my Optimum card behind at the Zehrs in LaSalle on May 4th. I did not realize it until weeks later when I saw that points had been used from my account. When I contacted PC Optimum customer service they said it had been used at the same Zehrs on May 10th to buy a very expensive prime rib and they refuse to give the points back.
To the person who stole it instead of turning it in - I don't make a lot of money and try to save up on points for when I really need them. I sometimes rely on my Optimum points to purchase things for basic needs. I am very disappointed in your lack of integrity.
Yesterday, June 4th, I was involved in a motorcycle accident (I was the rider) at the corner of Tecumseh at McDougall. I wanted to say thank you to all those people that stopped to help, blocked traffic to keep me safe, called my wife and contacted EMS right away.
I'd also like to say special heartfelt "THANK YOU's" to the following people as they were the ones who I spoke with, although it was only briefly. The man who was the first person to get to me, gave me reassurance, contacted my wife and initially controlled the scene.
Nurse Kevin who was there to keep me from moving and ensured I wasn't further injured. The lady who was holding my hand and giving me reassurances while waiting for EMS to arrive.
I didn't get the names of those who stopped to help, (sorry but my mind was elsewhere at the time) but I wanted to recognize them.
I'd appreciate it if you'd reach out to me and leave your name and phone # (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can say thanks properly.
Also, thank you to those who stopped and helped that I wasn't aware of, and of course to the EMS folks. I really appreciate what you all did.
And last, but not least, anyone who witnessed it, please get in touch at the email above as well.
So, this morning just before 8am, some absolute moron in a turd-coloured pickup ran my Cherokee off of Highway 3, forcing me half-into the gravel shoulder/ half into the shallow ditch, as he played chicken with me while performing a heroic pass of about 7 vehicles. I'm ok, my Jeep is ok, but this guy did manage to clip someone while performing this idiotic manoeuvre as he tried to squeeze back in, I saw plastic/ debris fly everywhere.
Anyways, nobody stopped, and I did call the OPP to put in a report, but if you're the car that got clipped, I'd love to help you out and get that a-hole. And if you're the deuchebag in the turd truck,there's a lot to say to you, but I'll save it at grow up' for now. Nobody deserves to have people like you on our roads.
I was waiting in line at freshco on rivard, my son kept asking for freezies and i kept telling him we couldnt afford them, a kind woman infront of us in line bought my son a box of freezies.. i know it wasnt much but you made me feel so much better just by doing that for my son, its a silly thing really i know but i have been going through hard times and you showed me there is still good in this world just by doing that small little thing you made this mom tear up, i tried getting outside fast so i could hug you and thank you again but you were too fast. So i want everyone to know what you did really helped a mom in hard times. Thank you so much again
Tuesday my dad Wayne Hillman ( a Vietnam Veteran) was at Heavenly Rest Cemetery placing flags at all the Veterans plots. It was so hot out, and I told my dad before he left to make sure he took some water for himself. As he was placing the flags he saw a family drive by and turn around. A young mother and her children got out and asked what he was doing and if they could help. These children are all homeschooled and interact with their community while on field trips. This is responsible parenting and these children asked many questions about the Veterans buried there. I want to thank you for the bottom of my heart for taking the time to help place these flag on the veterans plots, and also for giving my dad some cool water bottles that you had with you. This is a huge shout out to a wonderful mom who is raising her children with great respect. You should be PROUD. Thank you to Mercedez, Tanner and Jillian.
I know you might have not thought twice about paying for my order this afternoon but I cannot tell you how much I appreciated it! I am currently 9 months pregnant and this heat has been destroying me and my dog ... our daily trips out consist of us going to Tim Hortons for a frozen lemonade and Tim bits then coming straight home. I was so shocked when I got to the window that I kept trying to pay the guy was like no he already paid!
I REALLLLLLLY APPRECIATE YOU!

My mother lives near Wyandotte and Banwell and she is in need of someone to cut her lawn and keep up with her yard. She has had people in the past take money up front for the summer and not show up when they were suppose to. I'm looking to help her sort it out but I live in Arizona. Can you please provide names of a couple good companies you would recommend that do work in that area. Facebook pages or websites would be appreciated so I can check some reviews.
