Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Recently, I was at the E.R. at WRH- Ouellette Campus; I can't remember when the waiting area was so crowded.
Some people were grumbling and complaining, demanding to get in sooner, leaving, etc. I couldn't help but think that while my problem was serious enough that I was sent from Urgent Care to the hospital I at least wasn't in distress.
As I, with many other people waited, we could hear the announcments of Code blue, code stoke, over and over. There were people that were violent, others who were argumentive who had to be separated. There was someone who wanted to leave unless she could see the doctor within the next hour. Security as well as a nurse told her that they had several accidents, a lot of really sick people and patiently asked her to stay. They told her that if she wanted to leave, it was her right but, she had to sign a release without being seen form.
At one point before a serious accident was brought in, a nurse inquired if she had enough time to go to the bathroom.
My thanks to all those working at E.R. who work so hard, take abuse, laugh and cry and are just as frustrated as patients and families. Thank you to the security folks, clerks who register and direct people, cleaning staff who were constantly being paged to clean up, porters who brought people for tests, and rooms upon admission, those technicians who draw blood, take xrays, ultra sound and CT scans, nursing staff and the doctors. I hope I didn't miss anyone. They work long hours, many times without breaks.
Your dedication is to be admired.
I'd like to say thank you to the gentleman in the F150 Grey Truck for his random act of kindness. Friday Jan19th I was at a Tim Horton's drive though next to Howard Johnson Hotel on Ouellette . When I came up to the drive through window to pick up my coffee, the lady told me "the gentleman before you paid for your coffee". You really made my day!! and I would like to thank you so much whoever you are :)
We were both stopped at the light on Manning. I was lost in thought when I noticed this good-looking man waving at me. We talked about this cold weather through body language. It was a good laugh. Thank you!
Hope to see you around!
Thank you to the gentleman in the black truck who chased after a silver SUV after it smashed into a gold Sebring and left the scene at the corner of Ontario and Lincoln on Jan. 18/ 18, at 3:25 pm. Thank you also for coming back to talk with me and verify that I was not at fault and the silver Lincoln SUV ran the 4 way stop.
However I did not get your name or phone number. If you read this, I would like to talk with you about doing up a statement for the Police. The SUV driver insisted I was at fault. He had a suspended license and could not produce insurance. Your kindness in helping me was appreciated more than you know.
I would also like to send a shout out to the gentleman who came running from his construction job to ensure I was okay. And to the residents who cleaned up the debris left on the road from the crash, your kindness did not go unnoticed. Thank you to all!
In 2014 a friend of mine purchased a thick cotton dress similar to the dress (just a dark green colour) in the picture here from a handmade street market near Erie and Ouellette. She gifted the dress to me and it was one of my most cherished dresses. Over the years I've moved multiple times and the dress was misplaced along the way. Last March my friend passed away at the age of 20 and I was devastated when I realized I no longer had the dress.
I am looking for any and all information on this market. If anybody knows what I'm talking about or knows who was running it, please leave a comment and I will personally message you or comment back. I would really like to purchase another dress, even if it is not exactly the same.
I want to thank the kindness of two strangers tonight. I tripped over a stone in the Dollarama (Walker rd) parking lot and fell. A lovely lady stopped her car and ran to my aid, also a kind gentleman leaving the store rushed to my help. He carried my bags to my car and both checked to ensure I was ok before they left me. I am bruised, sore and embarrassed, but so grateful for the kindness of strangers .
Thanks to the person who called an ambulance for my very ill brother, back in July 2017. This happened on Seminole and Francois street's. My brother escaped from the house where he lived. He was laying on the ground in a parking lot, when you stopped and asked if he needed help. The ambulance came and took him to the hospital. When we finally found him, he had convinced the nurses we were not very nice sisters. My brother was very sick with cancer and had gone off his medications. My darling brother passed away in September 2017. Thank you dear person for calling help. If you're out there, or someone knows who this is, I would like to say I wish you good things!
Sunday, the final day at Sears Windsor, a staff member briefly put her black Panasonic digital camera down on a shelf to help a customer. She turned around and her camera had been stolen.
To whomever stole the camera, can you kindly return it to Devonshire Mall Security or Lost and Found???
The camera held valuable family photos and photos of staff on their last day. Even if you just drop off the memory card in an envelope the employee will ask zero questions.
