Spotted : To the women with the license plate A#%$ & @6 who hit a parked silver Lexus in the Shoppers Drug Mart parking lot, on Grand Marais on Dec 23, can't believe you would drive off: even after an employee stopped you from driving off! Great way to ruin Christmas for someone by destroying their car. Just despicable.
P.S. We've given them your license plate.

spotted: Canadian Tire staff at both West and East locations!
so I'd been running rampid looking for a car starter for my mom as a Christmas present. was going to get one in the states until I started to worry if it would turn into a problem electrically once installed for her to get her etest this summer. enter Canadian tire staff. I first called the west end location to see of they had any in stock. the man I spoke with was very helpful. he answered alllllllll of my questions and explained that sometimes the starters can alter an etest but that it can be basically unplugged and reinstalled if they know it's there (in case anyone else was wondering). then he did me one better. he let me know they would be going on sale half price on Boxing Day but that they didn't have any left, to call the east end location, which I did. Paul from automotive parts was also very helpful. I explained we were spending Christmas in the states and at that price, I was worried they'd be sold out Boxing Day by the time we got there. he didn't think so but said to call him Boxing Day morning and he'd see if he could put one away for me. when we got there later that afternoon there were lots left so I guess it wasn't necessary after all lol. after purchasing the 4-button car starter I asked about an extra starter. he said I could purchase one for $40 or $50 but that the next step up from the one I had came with two starters and was only like $15 more. score! so I went through the return process. which I just knew would be painfully long and tedious process. it wasn't. the girl at the counter was helpful to everyone in line (I think her name was Sigi? sp?) and she made quick work of exchanging my starters for me when my turn came and we were off. so I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped me make my moms Christmas a little brighter. she was so very stoked that she won't be spending the rest of her winter freezing her butt off.
and if anyone is looking, we got a prostart 4-button starter. the sale is on for the next few days I think. east end Tecumseh street has them but doesn't install them but the west end location will. or they can give u a number for a service who does them. happy new year!!
the "polite" girl on the phone :)
On Monday Dec 23rd someone smashed into my burgundy equinox either while I was in Walmart or my husband was in shoppers getting the baby's medicine leaving are front bumper smashed and cracked!!! People are serious jerks this time of year and I find it hard to believe that know one saw and got a license plate etc I hope karma gives myself and anyone else who experienced this over the holidays justice ! I believe it was a white vehicle as there is white paint on my bumper and we can't afford to fix this so thank you for driving like a disrespectful jerk and wrecking the car I drive my two young babies around in
Spotted : While out using up a gift card at the east end Canadian Tire, I witnessed a simple act of kindness. An elderly gent in his mid was having trouble turning off his car alarm and seemed rather red faced about the situation. Along comes a younger fellow in his early 20's went over and helped him shut off the alarm. A simple gesture that ended with smiles.
Nice to see the younger crowd stepping up.
We all know that the holidays can be crazy especially on boxing day. With the chaos busses can get super busy too. Bussing home from the mall yesterday the bus was completely packed, an this elderly man was standing even though he could barely keep his balance.
Spotted : To the boy who looked about 8 or 9 for giving up his seat so the elderly man could sit. This gives me hope for the upcoming generation.

Thank you so much to my landlord. You have been spotted for being such amazing landlord. Thank you for working with me. Merry Christmas and happy new year and again thank you
Spotted : To the guy who shaped this bush into a penis, good times in 2013
Spotted : I was in line at Chapters at Devonshire Mall on Boxing Day when the young man behind me informed the young girl ahead of me that she had dropped her gift card, which was laying on the floor. I enjoy seeing good deeds and ensure I comment on them when I do see them. He could have easily picked it up nonchalantly and the young girl wouldn't have noticed (nor would I), but instead he was honest. I commented to him that was a kind thing to do.
Thank you, sir, for your integrity!
