Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I would like to thank the man who said something to the driver of a white Lincoln MKZ on Monday, September 30, 2019, at approximately 1:00 p.m. at Costco. I had just left the sidewalk of Costco to cross the two lane driveway to head to the parking lot near the gas pumps. I was walking several feet behind the white Lincoln MKZ when it was heading toward Legacy Park Drive. It stopped at the intersection and a white Ford Ranger turned left out of the left side and then the white Lincoln driver decided to put his car in reverse. I saw it coming at me, screamed and jumped away as much as I could but he didn't stop until a man on the sidewalk at the entrance of Costco said something. The driver put his car into park angrily, swung open his door and went at the customer on the sidewalk. The man on the sidewalk was then pointing at me and saying, "that lady right behind your car! You nearly ran her right over!" The older gentleman driver just kept getting in the customer's face, saying, "do you have a problem?!?" the customer just repeated what he said and pointing at me. I picked up my purse off the driver's car and went to my vehicle. I was shaken as there was less than a finger's width between the driver's bumper and my legs. If the man on the sidewalk had not said what he did when he did, I would be in the hospital or morgue right now, instead of just a sore elbow and bruises. Thank you to the customer!! Thank you so much!!!! I hope the driver's arrogance will diminish due to the fact that the customer stopped him from being charged with seriously injuring or killing a pedestrian. The driver owes the man a serious apology and a debt of gratitude. I was in such shock I just went to my vehicle and sat shaking. Two Costco employees came to me and were in disbelief the driver didn't run me over or seriously hurt me. Thank you again to them for their concern and I am sorry I did not thank the man who stopped the whole incident from being far worse. God put him there at the right time for me and I am extremely thankful!!!
My husband dropped me at the Devonshire Mall entrance near Moxey's restaurant. In order to let me off as close to the door as possible he stopped in the bus area. I had a bag full of equipment to return to the Cogeco store. I use a cane due to a bad knee and the bag was heavy. He couldn't do the return because the account is in my name. As I was entering the mall a young woman who was having a cigarette offered to discard her cigarette and help me with my bag. I was a bit abrupt when I said thank you for offering but I could manage because the Cogeco store wasn't far. I hope she sees this because I want her to know how much I appreciated her gesture. I was abrupt because I hate to accept that I am not as young as I once was and hate to accept my limitations. A big shout out to her for her thoughtfulness.
Spotted CIBC parking lot Thank you to the two young men who saw me in the parking lot stranded, after I ran over a nail and ended up with a flat tire! They were on theiir work breaks but unselfishly offered to change my flat tire. Your kindness was truly noticed and appreciated. Andrew and Patrick went totally out of your way, and if anyone frequents the CIBC at Lauzon and Tecumseh please know how great these gentlemen are. Thanks again
People in LaSalle, please use all lanes and zipper.
Everyday at rush hour when anyone attempts to merg on Malden road it turns into a war zone.
You have people cut you off as you attempt to merg,they shoot you the finger, swear, it's ridiculous.
Traffic is insane at rush hour and it would certainly help if we could all just get along and follow the rules.
Not to mention the congestion would dissipate if everyone just chilled out and zippered away 🙌
Today around 1pm there was a scare of a 2 year old missing ! I held my daughter close just incase of anything bad but what I seen showed true windsor, every worker and every customer in that store was looking for this little girl. Way to go windsor on showing the true kindness and caring we all are. She was found which was great typical 2 year old wanting to play hide and seek. To the mom I'm sorry for that scare u had I know u must of been in a huge panic
If anyone has video cameras in or around this area and you have the ability to check them. I know 4 different people in this area that had their cars broken into. They broke my glass and took some change yet left a whole drawer of change. If you see anyone walking around the neighborhood around 2:00am-5:00am and you see something suspicious please call the Windsor police.
I want to give out a big thank you to the person who returned our stroller to toys r us after we completely forgot to fold it up and put it back in the truck!! We appreciate you!!
I was in the drive-thru at Tim Hortons on Ottawa street and this lovely lady in the blue car ahead of me paid for my entire breakfast order. I didn't really do anything special to deserve such wonderful treatment but I would like to mention this incident so others in our city know that there are still good people around. I don't know who you are, but you sure brightened my day today! Thank you!!
