Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Spotted: I just want to say thanks so much to my mom who was there for me and my sick kids today while my fiance was at work. Taking me and my son to the clinic, then bringing my daughter to your house to play while you waited for us to be done. Then for taking the night off work when I didn't even ask you to, just to wait at the hospital with us because you were worried about my son and didn't want to leave me stranded. You had a root canal done today too, so when you called into work, your supervisor was wondering why you were even going to come into work after getting that procedure. Then you proceeded by telling your supervisor that it's because your grandson was in the hospital that you took the night off work, and could care less about your teeth and the pain!! Not too many people would have done all of that for me and my kids, so I just wanted to give a big thanks and hug and let everyone know you have a giant heart and I appreciate all you've done!!
You've been spotted.
Spotted: The handsome men that come into my work with their cute kids. Thanks for being great dads and playing with them (at this indoor play ground) And thanks for being awesome eye candy :D Makes my day go by much better.

I was at the east end Walmart today, buying some last minute Christmas gifts on my day off. I did all my shopping (which was pretty much filled with cars merchandise) and got in line to pay. When I got to the front I realised I forgot my debit card, stupid me!! I said sorry and asked for them to put my stuff off to the side and I would be back as soon as I can. Of course that meant I got two trains trying to get home lol. But I finally make it back to Walmart, and the lady at the register asked me to wait for a manager, which I did. She then told me that the lady behind me paid for all my items. I didn't know what to say, and did not make it to the car without bawling like a baby. So, to the lovely lady who did an amazing thing for me, thank you so much! I don't think I will ever forget what you did for me, And I will be giving you a call to thank you myself! Merry Christmas, And thank you again!!!!!! I promise to do some good deeds for others too.
Spotted : I had some car problems two days ago and as I was waiting for ride I walked to the timmies on temple rd and central ave there I got a 4x4 and I was amazed when the pretty girl said this ones on the house. That made my day so much better. It's simple thoughts like this that make this world a better place.
Spotted : I was on a very crowded bus earlier today and watched two elderly people get on, a lady with her arm in a sling and a man who was so shaky he could barely stand. After looking around to see if anyone else would offer their seat to either of them (which no one did), I got up and offered mine to the gentleman as the woman HAD managed to find a spot. Another older gentleman happened to notice me clutching my abdomen and wincing in pain and kindly offered me his seat, but just as he did, someone happened to be getting off so I took that seat instead, thanking the gentleman for offering anyway. I am currently recovering from major abdominal surgery that I had 2 weeks ago and have had several complications requiring re-admittance to the hospital and was on my way to a follow-up appointment with my surgeon. I just wanted to thank that gentleman for noticing my discomfort, and out of all the young, healthy individuals with their noses buried in their phones, iPads and video games, was the only one aware enough of his real life surroundings to show a little compassion to someone who was hurting. Thank you.

Spotted: All of the Windsorites to whom common courtesy is apparently not so common.
While I thoroughly enjoy all of the good news stories I have been reading on here, there is one thing that irks me throughout the year. Sadly, it seems to be worse during the holiday season when impatience levels are running high. Saying "please", "thank you", and "excuse me" are small words that go a long way when out in public. If I am in your way in an aisle in a store or public area, instead of just standing behind me shooting daggers into my back, say "excuse me" and not only will I realize you are trying to get through, I WILL GLADLY MOVE! Saying "please" and "thank you" when some person does a small courtesy for you also validates the fact that you acknowledge that they went out of their way to be kind or cheerful. These are the little things that cause people to simply pay kindness forward.
