Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Today my car battery died while I was out and about. I called CAA who was able to send someone within the hour. I want to thank the service tech that came to my rescue. Not only did he boost the battery but waited to be sure the car didn't die again. He then offered to follow me to my mechanic's to ensure I arrived without any problems. I'm quite certain that is not part of their protocol. It was very kind of him and made me feel secure until I arrived at my destination. Unfortunately I did not get his name. The world needs more kind and caring people like the CAA service tech that was sent out to help me. Thank you again.
I saw you pull out in front of the crazy lady near Lowe's on provincial road at 1:19 pm last thursday and snapped a picture of her van. I don't know if she damaged your car, a blue 2008 ,- 2010 focus - but if she did I'll vouch for you that she was crazy. Maybe you did pull out in front but it was bumper to bumper traffic. She had no right to attack your car. And maybe should been paying a bit closer attention while driving 10km/ h
Samantha at Dollarama on Tecumseh road by Walmart. Words cannot describe you're kindness. I have a young daughter with special needs and I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with stares and comments as my daughter was asking everyone if they liked her hat and mostly everyone ignored her & walked away. She ran up to you as you were stocking & screamed Hi' at you and you politely said hi back and smiled & laughed with her. She asked you if you liked her hat & you said yes it looks awesome! And told her to put it on, in which she did. She smiled and screamed looks good huh!!' You were so kind taking time to talk with her as most just stare at her and give me horrible anxiety with comments about how loud and out of control she is. That small encounter with you made her day she was so much better through the rest of the stores kept her hat on and just smiled away. So thank you Samantha for taking 5 minutes of your time to not only make a little girl with downs happy but also an overwhelmed mother relieved. Your manager should be proud to have you on their team!

Just a quick reminder to the person that had no clue how a roundabout works in LaSalle this evening and to anyone else who needs a quick refresher. The outer lane is for straight and right, the inner lane for straight or left. You t-boned my six months pregnant wife, two year old son, and niece because of your ignorance. Not only that, but you didn't even have the courtesy to go check on them to make sure you didn't hurt anyone. Thankfully, even though you hit the rear door where my son was sitting in his carseat, everyone seems to be ok. The car, however, isn't. Next time, yield to traffic in the roundabout like you're supposed to. You're lucky the OPP officer was too lazy to issue the citation you so justly deserved. In the end, it'll go on your insurance as an at fault once the insurance companies get it sorted out.
There are still some good people left in the world.. I drove to 711 tonight to get gas and a few other things.. I realized after I had already pumped the gas that I left my debit card at home. I gave them my licence plate number and phone number and told them I would be back in 20 minutes. A few minutes after I left 711 called me to tell me the man in line behind me paid for my gas and I didn't have to come back. I'm not sure who he is or what he even looked like but thanks whoever you are I'm super appreciative and will pay it forward wishing you some excellent karma good sir.
Just wanted to give a big shout out to the Beautiful people that work at the Tim Hortons on Ouellette near the Staples! Thank you so much for always being so happy and helping me with the large orders I come in with sometimes. I appreciate all you ladies on the morning shift. You are all amazing at what you do. THANK YOU!!
Spotted: It's been a bit of a stressful few days. I'm currently staying at my partners place on Lincoln because there's a deck being built at mine. I'm a bit out of my comfort zone. Many of you know Lincoln is a one way and I went to squeeze my little fiat in a spot last night. I'm not the best under pressure and there were some cars behind me. They weren't passing so I quickly pulled it in the spot and on the curb in the process and did not want to work on correcting at that moment... I left it there to go crawl inside and out of that situation. In the moment I must've put my four ways on and left them on all night! I'm so sorry to all the neighbors that must've had to deal with that incessant blinking!!! Incredibly insensitive on my end! I had no idea until this morning when I got in to go to work and the car was dead (and of course on the curb, parked like a jerk). I called my boyfriend who was at work and he was on his way to come give me a jump, but before that could happen a stranger pulled up beside me and offered a jump. I later got a call from the police asking if everything was all right due to the car flashing all night. I really appreciate the community looking out and again, apologize for being so frazzled by such a simple task like a new situation and parallel parking under pressure! Thank-you to the helpers in this community, it was incredibly appreciated.
