Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
On Wednesday of last week my boyfriend was admitted to Hotel Dieu Hospital. He was there all weekend and on Sunday when he was finaly discharged and we were able to go home. He practically ran to the elevator so excited to go home as it was so close to the holidays. As we were exiting the elevator to the parking garage I grabbed my keys from my purse and took a step towards the garage; my keys slipped from my hand and fell down the elevator shaft .. I watched them fall ALL THE WAY DOWN.
Panicked and in tears I ran to the security desk on the ground level and begged for their help. Those were our only set of keys available at the time and we were screwed. The security who called the egineer of the elevator company to get help and we were told it would be 500$$. Im a second year university student, I DO NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY to pay to stop an elevator. Two out of the three security guards happened to have fishing rods, they attached a magnet to the end and attempted to fish out the keys, and they were succesful!!
I can't even begin to explain how grateul I am for those guys. We would have been stuck, no access to the car, our apartment, his medicine, etc... Furthermore, it was cold, rainy, and their shift was basically over. They didnt have to help us at all, but they went above and beyond to make sure we were safe.
THE THREE SECURITY GUARDS AT HOTEL DIEU ON SUNDAY DECEMBER 22 @ AROUND 230pm; YOU HAVE BEEN SPOTTED.
Spotted : Thankyou to the wonderful person who paid for my groceries today!
I ran home quickly to grab my debit card when I realized I had forgotten it. When I returned the cashier said my groceries had been paid for! Can you believe that! It made my day! Glad to know there are still kind hearted people in the world!
Merry Christmas and thank you whoever you are!
I enjoy reading all these acts of kindness going around the windsor area. I was just wondering if any one in windsor knows of any companies trying to help out families at this time? I have a friend in need, she is a single mother of a 16 year old girl and a 17 year old boy and she is the type of person who would give you the shirt off of her back if she could. She has struggled all her life but i have never seen her struggle like she is doing now. I have messaged and called upon a lot of people to see if i could get her some help so she could have a little christmas and i have come up empty handed. So if anyone out there knows of anyone looking to help a family PLEASE LET ME KNOW.... Its cutting it close

Spotted : To the lady who came to Borics today with her daughter to have a color done. Thank you for going to Tim Horton and bringing us all muffins because we were so busy and you wanted to make sure we got a break with a muffin. We appreciate the nice gesture and we loved the muffins. Merry Christmas.
Spotted: to the lady at the bull and barrel at around 2:30 on Sunday putting her thumb down at us, We Muslims don't make fun of anyone's religion, so why would you?
I'm sorry, but that was very disrespectful.
Spotted : To the person who thought this was a good parking job may want to rethink that. Firstly it's a big truck. Second you pulled nose in to a pole so half your truck was out in the lane way. Apparently finding a spot your truck actually fit in was too much work, and hey...people don't mind having to detour around your truck. Lol. Merry Xmas!
