Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Spotted in Windsor:
To the so called "photographer" who participated in the Downtown Mission Polar Bear Dip that's had your face plastered all over the paper and the news, maybe you should really get in the Spirit of Christmas and do something to help the people that have actually PAID for your services.
Signed, all the people you've screwed over.
Spotted : I was having dinner at the Pizza Hut on Dougall yesterday with my husband, and 3 boys as well as my "daycare children" and we were waiting for our food to come. A nice lady across the restaurant kept looking over and smiling. To our surprise when our food arrived the server told us that the meal was free as the nice lady across the restaurant had decided to pay for our entire meal because she had never seen such quiet, well behaved children. This made my heart melt and wished I was able to thank her for such a kind gesture but she had already left. So, if you are the 2 kind ladies who were sitting in pizza hut around 5 pm thursday night, I want to thank you with all of my heart!!
Spotted : To the person who was driving erratically on the expressway today at around 330pm in the rain, you scared the crap out of me. Driving in and out of traffic and almost coming close in hitting a few cars, you need to slow down and be patient. The weather was not in your favour and at no time is this appropriate driving. Just to let you know you were driving a dark blue Kia SUV..please drive cautiously before you kill someone and your self. I have your license number as well because I wanted to call the police and report you which I have not. Please dont let me regret it! This was my Christmas gift to you.you have been spotted!!
Spotted: All kinds of reckless drivers on EC row this evening
I work until about 6pm on Friday nights and always take EC Row home. Normally, traffic is very smoothly flowing at this time, although busy, as many people are headed home after a long day of work. Today's milder weather seems to have made drivers less aware of road conditions because I spotted no less than 4 careless driver speeding and weaving in and out of traffic like their wives were in labour. Wet roads and dark skies still make for poor driving conditions and I think we all need to slow down and be more cautious when driving. Not only around the holidays because more people seem to be out and about, but for the rest of the winter when road conditions may not be as ideal as we would hope.
A good driver who just wants to make it home after work in one piece
Spotted : To the angel that works at the Manning road McDonalds. I called you tonight after I got home with my order, as my kids discovered that neither had them received the toy from their Happy Meal. They were really disappointed, so I called your location just to report it. I was hoping that maybe it would prevent it from happening to another child. You were so sweet, and immediately volunteered to drive them over on your way home. My boys were so happy to receive their TMNT skateboards. I know the toy is a small thing, but the fact that you took time out of your busy day to bring them over is what makes me believe again in the goodness of people. Merry Christmas!
Happy mom, and two grateful boyz
Spotted : The generous customer at Sears this afternoon that had a few extra coupons. She came up to 3 of us in line and gave us each a sheet of coupons. Each of us got at least $5.00 off our orders. At this time of year it is much appreciated. Thank you.
I have a nice little story from a bride-zilla in the making!
When I first became engaged I swore to myself, my fience, friends and family at my engagement party I was not going to be "one of those, BRIDE-ZILLAS" engaged in April 13 to be married June of 14 and excited as any girl would be, I started planning and making appointments to meet with all my bridesmaids and my mom to find the perfect gown!
The first gown I tried on was it, it was the one... But the price tag stopped me in my tracks, so the search continued for a gown I could compare to The One with not as big of a dent on the planning budget. So I find, the second best one! Get the deposit paid and order placed. Perfect right?! Well, buyers remorse set in and care of cost right out the window.
I begged and plead "please let me cancel my order and get the dress of my dreams" to be smacked in the face with "contract is signed, orders already in place it can not be canceled" huff and puff I suck it up and decide to deal with it like a big girl, tried repeatedly to psych myself out about the "second best dress"
months go buy... Dress should arrive between September and the first week of December at the latest. So mid September I contact the boutique that I ordered my dress from and set an appointment for me and my girls to go in and get sized for their dresses and get them paid, 4-6 months comes quick when you're expecting a dress. Specifically stated that regardless of bridesmaid #4 placing her order the 3 maids that were there with me that day MUST have their dresses ordered ASAP. I even stated that I didn't care if The last dress came from a different dye lot number, pft.
So here we are 2 weeks into December I haven't heard anything, weird, so I call the bridal store I ordered from to be told "I don't have authority to talk to you about your dress ill have a manager call you on Monday" Monday comes and goes...twice, than to receive a call from the Manager to tell me, "your dress order was canceled and we didn't know," WHAT?! How can you NOT know an order YOU placed was canceled?!
Today, I sympathize with all bride to bes who are called Bride-zillas, it's really not our fault... And when you're told there's nothing that can be done now except to rush order the "second best" dress which would make it here just in time for your wedding... Ugh.
I'm off now to find a knock off of my perfect dress, dress number one, with a short six months left before the wedding in hopes it'll make it here on time.
Please share this with all brides to be, let them know they are NOT alone.
A Bride-zilla in the making...
