Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Spotted: to the lady at the bull and barrel at around 2:30 on Sunday putting her thumb down at us, We Muslims don't make fun of anyone's religion, so why would you?
I'm sorry, but that was very disrespectful.
Spotted : To the person who thought this was a good parking job may want to rethink that. Firstly it's a big truck. Second you pulled nose in to a pole so half your truck was out in the lane way. Apparently finding a spot your truck actually fit in was too much work, and hey...people don't mind having to detour around your truck. Lol. Merry Xmas!
Spotted : Thank you to the kind person who paid for my groceries today! I went home quickly to get my debit card. I had forgotten it. When I came back the cashier told me my groceries were paid for! Thank you so much. It made my day. There are still wonderful people out there. I see it all the time where I work but it actually happened to me! Again thank you,
Merry Christmas. I hope it comes back to you!
Spotted : I was picking up a few items at the Metro on Central & Tecumseh, and overheard a conversation between a cashier and a customer. The customer had forgotten her debit card in her car so she had set the items aside and went to go get her debit card, when she came back to pick up her items the cashier had told her that an older gentleman had paid for her items! She was in shock and so surprised it brought tears to my eyes because its sooo wonderful to see all the wonderful gestures people are doing for others around City.
Older gentleman who paid for the women's items you have been spotted by many people at the metro and it brought a huge smile to all of our faces!
Spotted : Today the dog that I foster got outside, after spending 40 min running around the area to catch her I went in the house to grab my cellphone to call for help and I heard a knock at the door, it was one of my neighbors holding the dog just like a baby. He told me she ran up on his porch and just sat there looking in the door until he came and picked her up. As we started talking I mentioned she was a foster and about to go up for adoption. He got so excited and asked if I could get him the shelter information as he wants to adopt her as his own. He told me he knew when he seen her looking in the door she belonged in his home.. How wonderful that she found her own Fur Ever Home for the holidays! A Miracle is still a miracle no matter how small. & lt;3
Spotted : yesterday afternoon, on the Lauzon 10 bus going both ways, the bus driver was a hoot, real super nice guy, dropped me off at the bus stop one stop closer to my destination, and for being a generally nice fellow thank you so much for brightening my day!
Want to say thank you to all who are making an effort to make everyone's christmas so special. Everyday I read all the stories and cry because it makes me so happy. I am pregnant, with complications, I am on bed rest. It breaks my heart that I cannot help this christmas, like in past christmas's, but these stories help me get through it, knowing there are still people out there who care about others and are selfless is the best thing in the world.
Spotted : To all you dogooders and secret santas, you all deserve the best this world has to offer. Have a merry christmas and may your new year be filled with everything your heart desires.
My son is 11, and wanted me to share this story. The start of his school year and previous school years have been rough on him. He used to get bullied all the time and would always come home and act normal. He always talked about his friends and all the games they played and we had no idea what was really going on. One day he came home after the 3rd week of school and went right to his room. After about 30 minutes I realized he wasn’t coming down so I went up after him to see what was the matter. He explained the story and I became furious (He doesn’t want me to share the details on here). We went to the school and they talked to all the kids involved and their parents. They apologized, but I still didn’t believe they were sincere. He asked me to not make it any bigger of a deal. We let it go and he went back to school but avoided his old group of so called friends.
Spotted : Today, today these three young men knocked on our door. I opened the door and recognized who they were, and wasn’t about to let them in. They stood there with a bag in their hand. I asked what can I do for you, and they asked to talk to my son. They said they had something for him and would like to give it to him. I called him down but kept a watchful eye on them and what they said. “we are sorry, really really sorry. We know what we did was wrong and we feel horrible about it. We all pitched in with our own money to buy you this because we know you didn’t have one. My son walked up to me and asked if he can open it, I nodded and said yes. 2 of the 3 boys had tears in their eyes as my son started to open the gift. iPad, they all pitched in and got my son an iPad for Christmas. One of the boys said to him as my son stood there in shock “ because of you we learned a really important lesson, and I know we can’t buy gifts and expect you to forgive us. We just hope that one day you can”…This was an 11 year old boy… My son thanked them for the gift and said , “yes maybe we can hang out, I miss you guys” I was touched, and something came over me. As angry as I was, I couldn’t believe what had just happened. People make mistakes, that’s the world we live in. But if these 11 year old boys can go 2 months and still be thinking about how much they hurt my son, and do all this to try and make it better. That makes me happy. This is the holiday season, reach out and offer forgiveness to those who have done wrong towards you. I hope this story sheds some light on how important forgiveness is in the world we live in. People can change and will, given the chance.
A proud mother who has belief in humanity again
