Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I'd like to call out everyone that drove past my mom today after she fell off her bicycle and did nothing. I hope you never have an accident where you need help. She needed an ambulance, which she called for on her own. Luckily she didn't hit her head, luckily she just broke and dislocated her arm, luckily she didn't lose consciousness. I hope you never need help, I hope you never lay on the side of a road watching helplessly as everyone ignores you.
To the people that seen her fall and did nothing, you suck.
My husband and I decided to take our kids to the downtown farmers market on Saturday. It was around 1130 in the morning and we started by parking on Ouellette and park area. As we got out of our vehicles it wasn't long as I had to grab my 4 year old daughter up in my arms as there were quite a few homeless people who looked rather dishevelled, strung out and worrisome to come across. One, as I stopped to attend to my daughter looked as though he wanted to grab my purse or reach in purse from a side if I hadn't turned around and looked him in the face. Shortly after, another group of three homeless people sitting on the sidewalk appeared to spit in our direction for no apparent reason whatsoever. As we walked to the corner of pelliser and park towards the farmers market there was another homeless person packed with a shopping cart. Then we noticed quite a few police officers on bikes who appeared to be tended to the homeless man. It was such a wake up call to my family on how hard this city has been affected by drug use and the alarming rate of homeless people. Kuddos to the Windsor police for keeping our family safe by just being present in the downtown area where we were at the time. You guys made it manageable. We definitely will have to reconsider weather or not to go again to the market as the safety of my family is number one.
My mom, a family friend and I took my children to the Canada Day parade. We went early, found a good parking spot and set up to watch the parade. Just as it started, a group of girls, around 12 years old, stepped out in front of us to stand on the road. They were completely blocking our view. My mom asked them to please step back or sit down, and they did. For about a minute. Then they were up on their feet, blocking our view again. I asked them to please step back or sit down twice. Both times they looked at me, saw that they were blocking the view for my child who was sitting on my lap, and didn't move an inch. Our family friend overheard one of the girls say that her mom told her to ignore us. So, not only were these rude tweens blocking me and my small children from watching the parade, they were being encouraged to be rude by their own parents. When they left, these girls left a pile of trash where they'd been standing: candy wrappers, smashed suckers, discarded fliers, drink cups. Not to worry, though, my children and I picked it up. To make matters worse, these girls were wearing team t-shirts. With their names clearly printed on the back. I'm really disappointed to see a local girls' sports team to be braving in such a poor manner.
Thanks to the gentleman who gave me a loonie when I ran out of change for the carwash today. May not be alot but was a nice gesture so I could finish up.
To the guy at the intersection of Seminole and george today between 3:30-4:00.
I'm married to a wonderful woman who gave me 2 beautiful children and who makes sacrifices for her kids, her husband and her family. She wakes up early, stays up late and never complains, she never complains until today. She came home crying because someone in a red Ford car rushed her while she was crossing and you were trying to turn. The first 20 minutes after hearing the story I wanted to find out who you were and have some choice words for you. But I calmed down, and I thought I'll share this in hopes just maybe it reaches you or other people like you. She was crossing the street and she rushed her last two steps so to not make you wait much longer, you yelled out your window move that A$$ fatty. She kept walking and just pretended she didn't hear you until you were out of sight and then broke down all the way to the car, and home.
I hope you realize how wrong you were. I hope anyone who is young or old enough to read this, realizes how wrong it is to bully anyone.
Today, June.25 on Alsace Avenue I was waiting to turn into the full parking lot at the Windsor Cancer Centre. A place that no one parked in that lot wants to be. I had my signal on to indicate that I would be turning in as soon as the attendant gave me the ok.
You were impatient and honked at me to move. You had plenty of room to go around me. After you decided to use some common sense and go around, the passengers in your vehicle ( a black compact SUV) shot me the finger.
The cancer centre is not a fun place to go. I was going for my 15 month follow up appointment. I felt sick to my stomach and my anxiety was high. When I go for my follow ups I hold my breath and pray that I get good news. I fought a really hard battle and pray that I never have to do it again.
I hope that if you ever happen upon that situation again that you will think twice before getting impatient . Show a little empathy.
And, I hope for your sake that you are never the one waiting to get a spot in the cancer centre parking lot.
I found an iPhone and another case in a shopping cart at Zehrs (Tecumseh and Lauzon). I handed it into the office here.
this may be a long shot... we were in Windsor today June 23rd and my 2yr old lost her purple baby doll. We were at tepperman's, stopped near dominion and e.c row and went to tecumseh mall. She absolutely loves this baby and keeps asking for it and I cant find it at the store to buy another.
