Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Last night me an my family went out to dinner at gilligan's on walker road. That is my boys favorite restaurant. We were enjoying everything about our night out as a family, giggling, playing games an eating good food. People would look at us an just smile,they knew we were just having a great time. After a great dinner we proceeded to go pay for our meal,an the waitress said i need to have your bill please an have a great night. Our bill was 70$, i just stood there an didn't understand. She then said this lovely couple had paid for our bill. I was so shocked . I couldnt thank them enough, out of all the people in the restaurant they picked us. Im so happy to see that there are amazing people still in this world. To the couple that paid for our dinner, you made our night even more memorable.
Around 5:00pm today (3/ 8/ 19) I was driving down McNorton on my way to a work meeting. I saw a large dog run onto the road from one of the side streets. The car in front of me hit it with such force the poor thing flew into the air & crashed back onto the road. I slammed on the brakes, already feeling in shock. The driver kept driving. I wasn't sure what to do. Stay or chase down the driver. I stayed, blocking traffic & got out. People honked. I didn't care.The dog limped back over to my side of the street. He/ she was crying/ howling. He/ she made it to the grass & layed down. I honestly didn't know what to do. 2 young girls came running & fell to the grass holding the dog & crying. A guy had his cell phone out filming the whole thing. I honestly didn't know what to do. I heard someone say they were going to call 911. Would they come for a dog? I don't know. Finally a blonde lady who had been driving from the other direction took charge & asked the girls if they wanted her to bring the dog to the vet. I moved my car & went on to my meeting, crying all the way. I've never witnessed anything more heartbreaking. For the person driving, I know it was an accident, but how could you keep driving like nothing had even happened. I can't stop thinking about it. Does anyone know what happened to the dog? Did the lady bring him to the vet? Did he make it?
Friday March 1, my husband was at fresh co on Wyandotte and Laporte. He collapsed in the parking lot, a wonderful lady ran in the store and got some firemen who happened to be shopping. I want to thank you all, unfortunately he did not make it, but I'm glad he wasn't alone at the end. Thank you again.
So I'm at Costco today in Windsor walking through the parking lot. I'm walking up the isle from my parking spot to the entrance.
This lady is at the back of her SUV with her huge box on a trolley, and the back hatch open. All I catch is the man who is beside her say something to the effect that it was good timing he came out when he did, so he could help her, seeing he is parked right next to her. Like I said, I was just walking by, but I saw him proceed to help the lady load this huge box into her SUV, and I heard her thank the man. I just thought that was sweet, and it put a smile on my face. Kindness, pass it on.
I want to thank a few people here. On Wed night I had to call 911, My husband was having some heart issues. Windsor EMS service arrived and they were amazing. I wish I had gotten their names, but the female, she was so good inserting the IV into my husband (he is deathly afraid of needles) that he didnt have time to react. Then at Hotel Dieu Ouellette Campus the medical staff were awesome. My husband was seen to quickly, medication administered and finally the paddles. His heart issues were righted, and we were out 4 hours after he was first taken to the hospital.
Dr. Thompson in the ER , all the nursing staff, thank you for having the most awesome bedside manners and allowing this wife to relax a bit. Thank you for taking such great care of my husband and for putting my mind at ease with the shocking thing.
Follow up He is now wearing a loop monitor for 2 weeks, and has a cardiologist appt on Mar 14 to see what caused the issues to begin with. Hopefully all this gets sorted and nothing like this ever happens again.
I was in an accident tonight on Banwell. To the lady who stopped to help, I wanted to say thank you. I didnt get your name bc I was freaking out but you were calm, soft spoken and exactly what I needed. Thank you so much. Without you I would have been lost.
I was with my Uncle and Aunt at Costco when we were leaving we realized the vehicle we were driving had a flat tire with my uncle being legally blind and neither my aunt or I knew how to fix the tire we werent sure what to do but then out of no where a gentle man came over and tried to use fix a flat that he got out of his own car and tried for 45 mins to get air in until he realised it wasnt gonna work so just as the gentleman made the decision to help by putting the donut on and take the other tire off for us another gentleman showed up and offered to help him so it could get changed faster we were so appreciative for the help considering it was very cold out. We would just like to thank these 2 good samaritans for coming to our rescue. You've been spotted in Windsor!!
Today as my 4 yr old sons bus was approaching the bus stop I was crossing the street (corner of divine st and superior st in lasalle) to get to the bus. The bus fully stopped, lights flashing, and arm out at this point. A black car with a Male driver who decided it would be a wonderful idea to blast through and tear around the corner (going towards front rd) came within 2 feet of hitting me! I yelled at him and raised my hands to get his attention. He pointedly avoided eye contact and kept going like it was nothing.This is not the first time this happened 2 weeks ago a red minivan did this too. I am far from impressed!
I'm just so glad that the kids were not yet crossing the street while these cars decided to do this.
People, please be more mindful! This should not be happening. When lights are flashing on a bus it's for a reason, not for decoration. How would you feel if it was your child that came within feet of being struck by a reckless driver not giving 2 craps if they were crossing to get home?
On a good note! I want to thank my childs bus driver and the bus monitors (older kids from the school) for keeping a watchful eye and not letting the kids off the bus until they see it is totally safe for them to go.
Please drivers.....keep your eyes peeled for kids while driving, especially between the times of 3 and 4!
