Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
To the women in Walmart on the east end that helped unload and pack my groceries because my year and half old just wanted to be held (nap time melt down). Thank you, I am so grateful for the kindness you showed my daughter and I.
20190926 1255 @ Dollarama on Ottawa Street ..... - Talk About Paying It Forward !!!
After offering a man & woman the option to go ahead of me (since I had a cart full of items that were definitely going to take the lone cashier quite awhile to ring up), I was absolutely blown away by the young gentleman's generosity in reciprocating & just being an extremely nice guy ! In passing I had mentioned to both of them that I'd already missed the bus I intended to take and I had plenty of time before the next one, AND OUT OF NO WHERE he asked me, and to my great surprise how far I was going. Not far I told him, just to Parent Ave & Ottawa St, and here it comes folks. HE OFFERED TO GIVE ME (a handicapped person I must add) A RIDE HOME ! As I paid for everything he told me he'd be waiting out front when I was done. Sure enough as I left we connected again and we walked half a block to his car, introducing each to the other along the way. I had A LOT of purchases, A LOT !!!), and as heavy as they were he was quite happy to make room in his trunk for my 2 wheeled shopping cart as well as 2 large shopping bags - all stuffed to the brim ! Some extra room even had to be made in both the back & front seat areas to get me (along with a car seat, some toys, etc) into the car so we could be on our way. - and 6 blocks later I was home ! AND having had quite a bit of help I was (there's no other word for it) THRILLED that he had saved me a considerable amount of pain, as well as bus fare, and after offering him what it would have cost me to take a cab which he'd refused, I felt it was best to just offer a VERY HEARTFELT THANK YOU !
I'm not disclosing names here but I will say this: we need lots more Bulgarian people like this man ! AND we should all follow his example too !
I offer this married father of 2 (older boy, and a younger girl) a VERY BIG THANK YOU !
Something all readers might be interested in, 23 years ago I did almost exactly the same thing for an elderly woman that was having a hard time walking in deep snow to get to the A& P (showing my age aren't I) downtown.
Being a good person pays off. Maybe not soon, maybe not for a long time to come, but it does.
And the same thing applies in reverse too, Karma eventually comes around !
Thanks Mr. P.and as I said when you dropped me off your family should be VERY PROUD of DAD, and you can be sure that I'll PAY IT FORWARD !
Found this ring on walker road near grand marais. Birthstones and names ingraved. Someone must be missing this ring. Please help spread the word to find the owner!
This morning while awaiting my turn to make a left from dominion onto cabana, the impatient driver behind me was beeping their horn and pulling behind me as close as possible.
I guess they like some other's don't realize
Dominion at that spot is a ONE LANE ROAD and they just had to put on their patience panties and await their turn. I was also waiting for some younger students to cross before i could go. Dominion is a road that from roselawn to cabana has 2 grade schools with very young children crossing. To those that think I'm gonna move over for you to go when its one lane never gonna happen....wait your turn or go down Dougall its got 2 lanes.
was informed some residents on the street are getting plates/ videos of speeders flying down the residential road. So im sure it will be patrolled a lot more often.
I would just like to give recognition to the staff at Windsor Allergy and Asthma clinic. While waiting for my appointment today there was a medical emergency. I know they were just doing their jobs but I would just like to give the staff a huge thank you for the way they handled everything. The entire team from the secretary to the nurses and Dr.s all stepped in to help calmly and efficiently. The lady was in very capable hands until the ambulance arrived and I hope and pray you are okay you seemed to be alert by the time EMS had arrived. I know it is thanks to the exceptional team work from all the Allergy staff who helped! She was in the best care possible because of your dedication to being focused on her in a time of need!
I understand that people can be frustrated at times driving in the city but the middle aged bald man in the black dodge ram pickup truck this morning was the worst I've ever encountered. I take the same route every day so I know the red lights, pot holes etc. I take Central over the EC overpass, turn right on Deziel Road and left on Mannehim towards St. Etienne Blvd. He was following so closely that I was afraid to touch my brakes. I made sure not to antagonize him farther so I drove slightly above the speed limit. On St. Etienne Blvd he drove beside me very aggressively and veering towards me as to scare me. He sped off in front of me. Moments later I am behind him at the traffic light on Walker and Foster. He then gets out of his truck comes to my window and is swearing and yelling at me for "brake checking" him. Almost comical but his anger was palpable. He then proceeds to drive beside me on Walker, revving his engine and coming over the yellow line towards me. I watched him pull into the Windsor Airport but I wasn't comfortable approaching him. I didn't get a clear pic of his licence plate because I was shaking too much. Was it worth it sir? How dong did it take your heart rate to get back to normal?
I am just your average Caucasian middle aged woman, been driving accident free since 1980 when I got my licence. I have noticed lately that drivers are getting more and more aggressive lately. What's going on? Any ideas ? What can we do to alleviate this to make the roads a safer place to be?
To the driver hauling brush on the expressway this morning around 10:25 am. You sir / madam, need to learn the necessity of securing your load! I don't know how that piece of tree managed to come off of your truck and land in the middle of the westbound Lane! The traffic was extremely heavy and the drivers around me had to slam on their brakes and swerve to miss other cars that were trying to miss that piece of tree. Thank you to all the drivers around meith quick reflexes that were paying attention. Thank you to the gentleman that got out of his pickup truck behind me, after almost rear-ending me, to pull that piece of tree off the road. This could have been the worst Monday morning for many people. To the driver again, you should consider yourself very lucky that you are not being held responsible for several injuries and possible deaths this morning. I hope you see this post and understand the gravity of your error. Do better!!
Thank you very much to the kind woman at the corner ow manning and 42 who gave me her hitch pin without a second thought after somehow my lockable one came apart and wiggled its way out. Your kindness will not go unnoticed and I will pay it forward. You have been spotted!!!
