On Thursday February 23rd, I headed to the check out at a grocery store. As I was checking out, the cashier asked me, "How far along are you?"
Surprised with this question, since I am not pregnant, I answered, "No, I'm not."
After ringing in a few more items she said, "No really, you're about to burst, you must be due in the spring."
I quietly told her again that no, I am not pregnant. She asked a third time before noticing that I was about to cry. She made a huge deal about apologizing, loud enough for other customers and employees to hear, then came around and hugged me while blocking me from getting by to leave, despite my obvious discomfort. I hugged her back even though I wanted to use some profanities and leave.
This is the worst thing that has happened to me since I was diagnosed with heart issues that restrict my ability to exercise and work.
To anyone reading this, I would like to remind you that you do not know the life story of strangers you come across every day. It is NEVER okay to assume a larger woman is pregnant. If you do make this mistake, quietly apologize then move on.
I have never been so embarrassed in my entire life, and this situation could have been handled better, or avoided completely.
Today at 9:15 am, I was on the 1C headed westbound at Tecumseh and Ouellette when a man in a wheelchair started to fall off the sidewalk. Our bus driver immediately stopped and ran off the bus to aid the man and right his wheelchair for him. She not only got his wheelchair to a safe spot on the sidewalk but made sure he was able to continue on bringing his dog out before returning to the bus. This simple act of caring and kindness melted my heart. You Mrs. Bus driver have been spotted.
From the calm & thorough 911 dispatcher to the two police officers and two paramedics who arrived, your caring, professional and thorough manners in helping support a student in distress helped make a stressful situation more bearable for all. I did not catch your names, but you were all wonderful and I am thankful for having such valuable human resources in our community!
Last Thursday my family went out for Valentine's Day dinner. We have a 2 year old and a newborn so we were avoiding the crowds. We went to our favourite spot, East Side Mario's. We enjoy eating here and typically have decent service while we are here. Tonight we were greeted by our server before we had even gotten settled (which takes a bit with 2 kids). She offered to get our drinks while we got settled. She was back in a flash. We had superior service for our entire meal. We didn't have to wait for bread or salad (which is important when the 2 year old wants to eat!) our drinks were never empty and she sprinted around with a smile on her face. I even caught my 2 year old flirting with her as she tended to another table. Now I have never worked as a waitress but I can imagine that it isn't the best of jobs. People can be rude and it would be hard to be as happy as our waitress was tonight, clearly she is a people person. Even my husband who doesn't usually say much about service said how wonderfully we were treated tonight. I hope that this girl's boss recognizes what a spectacular employee he has. She deserves a raise!
Jenna R. You have a bright future ahead of you and you have been spotted!!
Today, I found some money at the Starbucks at Devonshire Mall. I would like the owner to get it back. If you could provide me the amount lost and where you were sitting that would be great!
Shout out to Josh at the Front road Tim Hortons! He always knows how to make a girl feel special, he has such a great smile and is always so polite. Thanks for always returning a smile.
