Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
So, I went into Subway earlier this evening with my little sister who's 3. We were standing in line and I noticed the man in front of us kept giving my little sister a smile and making her laugh. I placed the order for my sister and when I went to go pay, the cashier said "the man infront of you paid for the meal." my heart literally melted and I got so emotional I almost started crying lol. I turned around so quickly to find the man but he disappeared super quickly. I went outside to look and I couldn't spot him anywhere. So, to the man who paid for my sister's dinner this evening, if you're reading this, thank you so much. You have no idea how happy and emotional it made me. I truly wish I would've gotten to thank you in person, maybe one day we'll cross paths again and I'll be able to.
I have misplaced my keys and would really appreciate getting them back if someone was to find them. Please, please contact me if found. Lost in the west end of Windsor.
My grandfather recently passed away. Of course it's a devastating situation. However, the way that Windsor Chapel Funeral Home handled everything was amazing. T.J. (funeral director) took it upon himself to borrow a Toronto Maple Leaf's jersey and brought a fishing rod to place near my grandfather, as he came to find when speaking with my family, that grandpa loved the leafs and fishing! It sounds like such a small detail, but it meant so much to all of us. And the way that they treated my grandmother there, was as if they were part of our family, grieving with us. I realize that this is their job, but T.J. did not have to go out if his way to bring those items, and they definitely did not have to treat us all as if we were family. Those people are definitely in the right line of business. They showed compassion and sympathy, and I'd like to thank them on behalf of my family. You were all wonderful! You made my grandma's life a little easier, and I thank you for that.
To the incredibly generous girl in the silver volvo ahead of me in the drive thru line: thank you again for paying for my breakfast. You absolutely did not have to do that! I really hope you get a chance to read this because it really did brighten up my day. Thank you thank you thank you!
I just want to thank and recommend Discount Auto Service on Hanna and Howard Ave. Never have I been treated so kind and fair by any mechanic, specially during a time in my life when I really needed a break. If you ever need service go there! I know that I will be going there from now on.
I'm sorry Union or no Union Kids should never be used as a bargaining tool to get what you want. There is absolutely no reason in the world that our kids should be denied their education so that you can get what you want. I come from a very large Union Family and I have also worked in a Union environment. I have gone from making over $25 an hour to working my butt off for less than $9, with no wage increase in over 5 years and no benefits. I survived, suck it up buttercup and get back to work. Maybe these greedy people should try to live with less the $1500 a month as I do and see how long they survive. Unions should only be in place to keep jobs local and not to encourage greed and to hold Children hostages in gyms and not allow them to learn. You are teaching Children that if they throw tantrums you will get what you want.... SHAME ON YOU
I was struggling to find a handicapped spot for my son's wheelchair van. He and I were on a mission to replace some items we lost in the flood.
I pulled into an opening as soon as I spotted it and right beside me another one opened, a midsize SUV pulled into the wheelchair spot and the kid in the driver's seat was on his own. No wheelchair, no equipment for mobility in sight, just a cell phone in his hand he was glued too.
I tucked away my son's ramp and locked my doors while observing this young man hop out of the vehicle. I know, I get it, there's 'invisible disabilities' but there's still these extra wide parking spots for equipment and people should really park elsewhere if they don't utilize the width like those of us who don't want to unload our handicapped family members onto a sidewalk and look around for a 'regular' spot, it's very difficult.
It took me some courage and I rarely do this but as he was hopping out of the car and walking and appeared quite healthy and athletic our eyes made contact,. I said "Dude, I suspect you have a handicapped sticker but it's not yours right?"... Without hesitation this 17-18 year old said "you know what, it's my dad's and he's not here so I really should not be parked here, I'll move ma'am"..... and he got into the car and moved it! Wow. Whoever you are, in that fleeting moment you thought you'd take advantage and you didn't and weren't rude or ignorant and took responsibility for your actions when confronted. Your parents should be so proud of you and I am too. I would trade my child's disability for your abilities and park as far away in the smallest car and smallest parking spot ever ! if I could. I never ever park in a handicapped spot unless he is with me. This system of handicapped stickers is being abused and there are so many unnecessarily using it, and it's just not fair to those of us who need the space. I hope those of you who are reading this and guilty of doing this, perhaps you could learn from this teenager and appreciate your ability and enjoy it because it would be an absolute dream for my son to be able to walk and it will never happen - I really don't want to park there, I have too. Just appreciate your legs and health and show some compassion for those not so lucky in life!
My husband had to have an angiogram today at hotel dieu campus. The staff are amazing. The recover is a long process and these women never lose their sense of humor or compassion. Big thank you for everything.
