Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
To the driver of a water tanker today, eastbound on Riverside at Walker, around 3:30 pm. It says "stay 500 feet back on the rear" which I saw as you sped away. You almost killed two cyclists today. As you turned right onto Walker, we had to slam on our brakes to avoid going under your truck. We yelled and you just kept going. I'm guessing you didn't even see us because we could clearly see you in your side mirror and you were looking down at something.
Take a refresher course. You only proceed with a turn if the way is clear. We are all lucky we were paying more attention than you were, or you'd be facing the police right now, and I'd be at the morgue.

This isn't something I've 'spotted', and I'm not even sure if this post is allowed, but I need help. I feel comfortable with being able to post on this website anonymously, so I'm really hoping this will get posted..
I won't bore you with the nasty details, and please spare me any judgement, but long story short I'm looking for a good self defence class that could help me protect myself against a man. Now, before you begin to try and inform me about the (very obvious) option of going to police, please understand that there's only so much police can do. Once/ If it's taken to the court system, it's an entirely different ball game and sadly I've (much like many other victims of domestic violence) struck out. So, I've come to the realization that the only one that can protect me is ME.
Which brings me here.. hoping that perhaps someone reading this can recommend a good class/ trainer.
To the woman screaming at the check out lady this morning October 8th at Metro in Riverside.
Shame on you! You bought beautiful flowers for someone ( maybe for just your thanksgiving table) and the floral paper cones were not available at the check out area but in the floral department. For this you screamed and threatened and yelled at the lovely woman I see nearly every week working her butt off and being so kind to everyone and helpful. You yelled " do you know how much money I spend here ?!" Did it occur to you she does know how much you spend? Did it occur to you that she makes minimum wage and Metros latest overhaul has cut everyone's hours by at least half. Did you know this is thanksgiving weekend and these lovely cashiers are working on their feet all day? While you can afford beautiful flowers and what appeared to be a gorgeous hair cut and style, very nice sunglasses and the vehicle you drove off in anger wasn't so bad either. I'm not sure what set you off but if it was the 12 steps out of your way to get paper for your flowers you certainly must have an amazing easy life, that sense of entitlement and nastiness you spewed all around this morning was the worst display of 'first world problems' I've ever seen. I won't post the video I took of you yet because I am hoping you will return and apologize and ask the Metro staff if you can shop there again, I would ban you permanently if you behaved in my place of work as you did there this beautiful morning. I wish you peace and kindness and a glorious thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope your flowers don't wilt from the angry energy your person exudes.
To the low life that came up on my porch last night at the corner of Niagara and Louis and STOLE my buda statue... HOW DARE YOU!!!! you are a looser. That statue has a lot of sentimental value, even if it wasnt expensive and YOU broke my heart. I hope you fall and scrape your knee... you just ruined my thanksgiving.
Working at a department store you always run into customers who are disrespectful it's just part of the job! Sometimes aggravating but comes with the territory. Yesterday a woman left our store after shopping only to return 5 minutes later. She told me she had hit another persons car in the parking lot and would like to find them to report it. Astonished she came back in, most people would just book it. After we found the customer she hit they went outside to check out the damages. The lady informed us both that the damages in fact had come from another incident at another store and she needed not to worry, she just hasn't had time to get it fixed. They both wished each other a happy thanksgiving and went about there day! It was so awesome to see someone's honesty on both ends!!! Kudos to both of you
Having a child with Special Needs can be tough in this world full of hate. You always go out with your child(ren) always ready to protect them and you wonder what is going to happen. You are prepared for anything. Well I took my kids out to Bubis and my oldest had a bit of a melt down. As our wonderful waitress noticed me trying to calm him she swooped in to the rescue! Omg! The way she handled the situation was amazing! She asked if it was ok and I told her yes and she continued. Just a young girl too. For a moment I knew I had to get him calm but how? Noise, out of comfort zone, No calming electronic or toy....nothing. People looking and I was ready to snap at all the eyes just looking. But this young girl was like a pro and swooped in, helped me calm my son down as she was helping me calm myself. As we went to pay the bill I asked her if she has ever dealt with anyone with special needs before. She softly and calmly told me no. I didn't give much info on my son but as this mommy got all emotional I told her she now can say she has and she did an amazing job and I thanked her so much! She reached out and gave me a hug. She introduced herself and we chatted for a bit. I was not going to share this story but decided to instead. Andie at Bubis is truly an amazing young woman whom the world needs more of! I hope the older people with the glares realized what they did and what she did! A thank you to her could never be enough.

Today at cross country we had a little scare with one of our student athletes, passing out and possibly having a seizure. Just want to take this opportunity to give a giant shout out to one grade 8 student from another school (don't know who this was) who called her mom (an ICU nurse) who was watching the race from her car, she didn't hesitate to come to our aid and take charge and stay with and make sure our student was ok and safe until the EMS arrived. Unfortunately we didn't get the chance to thank this person and her daughter amongst the chaos. If anyone reading this post may know who this person may be please pass along a giant thank you from the xcountry coaches from SJV and this student's family. Your help made the situation less stressful, much appreciated!!!
