Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Spotted : My Mom had renovations done by Family Home Improvements. She heard a noise and did some investigation to find under the bathroom sink water was dripping. She called and they immediately sent someone out. Faulty tap has to be replaced. She called my Mom and told her they will order the new tap but it will not be in before Christmas. They will put in a temporary tap so the bathroom can be use. Thank you the Home Improvement staff. You made my Mother very happy, and that makes a very happy daughter too! Now that's what I call Good Business!
Spotted : To the janitor at the Tecumseh mall, thank you so much. My two year old lost one of her winter boots in the parking lot. You chased me down to tell me and helped me find it. I would have never noticed till we made it to Santa.
Thank you so much. You have been spotted.
Spotted: To the person that stole my daughter car last week. My daughter is a single mom with 2 little ones. She has been saving almost 6 months to get her car on the road after failing the e-test. Not only did she get it fixed, but only had car on road less than a week when you STOLE it. yes she may of forgot her house key in the door on accident after spending hours at the hospital with her baby sick and her being tired and leaving keys in the door. You also stole her wallet and my grand babies ID and the last of her money and a few gifts. I do not wish bad on you at all. Just please return her car and id and you can keep the money and gifts.
If u see this car call police $200.00 reward for return of car.

Spotted : To the young couple on the eastbound Crosstown 2, getting off at St. Mary's around 8:15 on Tuesday night:
Thank you for defending me to the woman who decided to take her frustrations out on me. While her remarks were tame compared to others I've experienced, it was nice to have someone have my back once in awhile. Because of you two, that woman ended up realizing what she did wasn't very nice, and apologized, telling me she knows it's not my fault and she was sorry.
So thank you again, and happy holidays to the two of you.
Signed, your friendly neighbourhood bus driver.
Spotted : I just want to say thank you to my great nephew's school for their winter concert where they sang songs that said "Merry Christmas" on top of many other non Christmas songs. My little cousin goes to another school and they were not allowed to sing "we wish you a Merry Christmas", they had to sing " we wish you a happy holiday" so it didn't offend anyone. I think that all holidays should be included in the schools and that it shouldn't offend anyone, if it does I think that they can kindly take their kids out of the concert, poem, or school whatever day they do something. Let's embrace everyone's holiday!! :). Signed: A very happy great aunt
Spotted : To our Letter Carriers:
Just wanted to send a shout out to ALL of our hard-working postal workers, who traipse around this fine city of ours, through nasty weather and unfavorable conditions---somehow you all still have a warm greeting for us and have a smile on your faces. Thank you so much for all that you do.
~~~A Very Appreciative Customer
'They' say people in our world today have become narrow minded and one sided. People rush to appease themselves. Throw compassion and care for one another to the curb.
I beg to differ. During my quest to find an old prayer book for a 102 year old elder, I was amazed and enlightened with the responses and words of encouragement, links, websites and suggestions I received from many Windsorites and persons not connected to Windsor at all.
We did indeed find the 'needle in a haystack' although of a different edition. Thank you. All of you.
Spotted : to the Essex County Library, the Windsor Star, as well as the editors. Thank you also to the Goodwill Bookstore and especially to whomever it was that generously donated this book to the bookstore in the first place.

Spotted : So today I was working like I always do in the mornings. Except today I decided to hit a Tim Hortons and get myself an iced coffee. As I'm pulling up this nice gentleman lets me in (it was clear he was there first). As I ordered I thought "I should pay for this guys order". But because he was behind me it was hard to know if I'd have enough. His order only came to 1.15 but I wanted to repay him some how. So I decided to pay it forward and pay for his order :). Not only did it make me feel good but I'm sure it made him realize people can do nice things! I run into a lot of rude people in this city, but this guy put a smile on my face for simply being patient and allowing me to go first. Thank you whoever you are, it was a small sign of being courteous and it went along way.
relieved there's still nice people in this city. Hope you enjoyed your order on me :)
