Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
There are still some good people left in the world.. I drove to 711 tonight to get gas and a few other things.. I realized after I had already pumped the gas that I left my debit card at home. I gave them my licence plate number and phone number and told them I would be back in 20 minutes. A few minutes after I left 711 called me to tell me the man in line behind me paid for my gas and I didn't have to come back. I'm not sure who he is or what he even looked like but thanks whoever you are I'm super appreciative and will pay it forward wishing you some excellent karma good sir.
In the shelbourne McDonald's play place my grandson fell and when I picked him up was bleeding all over the place! I was trying to sort out how to get some ice and check his mouth out and another mother in the play place popped up next to me with a cup of ice and handfuls of napkins, she then helped me assess what was going on in his mouth (fat lip) and even gave him a toy to distract him. Thank you so much, I can't tell you how much I appreciated the help and comfort for both of us!! ❤️
Just wanted to give a big shout out to the Beautiful people that work at the Tim Hortons on Ouellette near the Staples! Thank you so much for always being so happy and helping me with the large orders I come in with sometimes. I appreciate all you ladies on the morning shift. You are all amazing at what you do. THANK YOU!!
Spotted: It's been a bit of a stressful few days. I'm currently staying at my partners place on Lincoln because there's a deck being built at mine. I'm a bit out of my comfort zone. Many of you know Lincoln is a one way and I went to squeeze my little fiat in a spot last night. I'm not the best under pressure and there were some cars behind me. They weren't passing so I quickly pulled it in the spot and on the curb in the process and did not want to work on correcting at that moment... I left it there to go crawl inside and out of that situation. In the moment I must've put my four ways on and left them on all night! I'm so sorry to all the neighbors that must've had to deal with that incessant blinking!!! Incredibly insensitive on my end! I had no idea until this morning when I got in to go to work and the car was dead (and of course on the curb, parked like a jerk). I called my boyfriend who was at work and he was on his way to come give me a jump, but before that could happen a stranger pulled up beside me and offered a jump. I later got a call from the police asking if everything was all right due to the car flashing all night. I really appreciate the community looking out and again, apologize for being so frazzled by such a simple task like a new situation and parallel parking under pressure! Thank-you to the helpers in this community, it was incredibly appreciated.
There have been a string of thefts in Walkerville from vehicles. This is ramped up when high school students are on break during the summer. My vehicle alone has been ransacked twice in the last 2 months. Two iPods have been stolen from my vehicle and I can imagine what others have lost.
If you see suspicious youths trying to open car doors late at night, call the police. I would condone knocking some sense into them but they could be dangerous and violence won't solve anything. Lock your vehicles at night and if you have surveillance equipment on your home or car, take a look at the footage from the last few weeks.
Monday my son and I found a iPad left outside and surely forgotten by accident. We are hoping to find the rightful owners, and couldn't leave it there knowing that it may end up in the be wrong hands/ sold/ stolen. If you lost an iPad on Monday, please message me (Jessica Carmen on Facebook) where and maybe the size/ colour of your iPad ? I'm trying to be very vague to make sure the proper details are given for me to return it to the right owner. Please share :)
Driving down the street when I look up and see the sign at THE FLOOR STORE on Tec rd near Jefferson. Was so happy to see support and making people aware of the need to protect these animals. Good job guys!
A ripple in the water gets bigger and bigger and will soon become a wave :)
To the guy on the Home Depot float wearing black lipstick...you were spotted!! Spotted making fun of people on the street while you rode a float that's message is acceptance. The absolute hypocrisy of your actions is horrific. How can you support and ask for people to accept you if you openly mock and laugh with your female friend on a float that everyone is looking at?? I watched you for a solid 5 minutes while the parade was at a standstill. You laughed and made fun of one womans hair, you and your friend laughing and making sweeping motions about her bangs. Unbelievable. I took the time to point out your actions to my child to show her what intolerance and ignorance actually looks like in the real world. If you don't appreciate people judging you and want society to accept you for the choices you make about your person, then be ready to do the same to others. You should be ashamed of yourself.
