Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Just a reminder to remember to lock your car doors every night. My significant others car was broken into last night and many things were taken, including his wallet (yes, I know not to keep it in there so save it). Always remember to double check since ignorant thieves never take a break.
I just want to say thank you to the city workers for all your hard work in the cleanup of garbage at the sides of the road from the flooding GREAT JOB!
Thank you to the fellow jeeper that was in front of me at timmies on Tecumseh/ lauzon that paid for my order September 12th. I've had such a bad day and something as simple as that put a huge smile on my face:)
It's the little things!!
So my morning started off not so good to say the least... woke up feeling sick, went to my first appointment and broke my nail, dropped my daughter's script and had to chase it around the parking lot. Then my morning had a silver lining. Was feeling stressed and needed a caffeine pick me up so figured I would stop and grab Tim Hortons at the chandler location.
To my surprise when I went to pay for my stuff the lady told me the gentleman in the gold intrepid ahead of me had paid for my order. So I figured I would pay it forward as well and put the cost of my order towards the next persons order. I guess there were a lot of people paying it forward that day. The cashier told me the lady who started the paying it forward today had just lost her daughter to ovarian cancer and it was her daughters wish to pay it forward when she could.
It took everything in me not to become a blubbering idiot in the taxi when she said it. My heart goes out to that woman and hope she knows she helped turn at least one person's day around by her kind act.
On September 11th I took my son to the Windsor Lions park. Was a nice outing until you came along. Your daughter, maybe 4 or 5 years old, was playing on the monkey bars. You came over to her and because she wasn't playing on the bars the way you wanted her to, you called her a baby and weak and being lazy for not doing it "right". You humiliated your poor daughter. When another kid went across the monkey bars you pointed him out and said "see look he is doing it and he is younger than you" and proceeded to call her a baby. When the girl's mother told you to stop (i am assuming was your girlfriend) you rebuked her and continued on.
I grew up being called stupid and lazy and all sorts of names by a parental figure and it did a lot of damage. As someone who has been through that, I worry about your daughter and her self confidence. You are being verbally and emotionally abusive to her and I wanted so much to stand up to you for her. That being said, knowing from my own situation, I had no idea what repercussions she would face at home for someone else speaking up for her and I did not want to make things worse for her.
The other parents in the park were just as disgusted by your behaviour and a few had even left because of it. Some of the children overheard and had questioned their parents about it as well. You should be ashamed.
As for your girlfriend, if that is how you speak to your daughter, how do you speak to your girlfriend? Surely you are abusive to her as well. Your girlfriend needs to kick you to the curb before you destroy their lives.
As for others, please share this so that maybe, just maybe this despicable person or his girlfriend read this and think about what is best for their child. No child or mother should go through this and my heart breaks for them.
Walking this am in Alexander Park spotted an older gentleman with garbage bag in hand making his way along the sidewalk near the river picking up all the garbage left behind, including cigarette butts and small pieces of
Paper. Kudos to you, Much appreciated.
Someone stole our HP laptop from our car last night (September 9) from pilette and grand bvld area. It has our kids baby photos and our wedding photos on a disc that is in it. We are heartbroken to loose these photos. We don't care about the laptop just want the photos back. If anyone comes across it please let me know. :(
A huge thank you to the crews working hard at picking up the flood/ sewer damaged stuff. And thanks to the crews from out of town who came to Windsor to help as well. As you drive through this city, there are so many people who have been affected by the flooding. The mounds of damaged stuff on people's lawns is heartbreaking. There is a lot of work to be done in picking up all this garbage, and your hard work is appreciated.
