Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
On Sept 19 we were at Hotel Dieu Hospital and witnessed a woman trying to take a wheelchair away from a volunteer. They are only allotted so many for the fifth floor to take patients down to the exit after a procedure. This woman eventually forced he wheelchair away from the volunteer then brought it back several hours later and tried to apologize. I hope she sees this as she was extremely rude and selfish.
Thank you so much to the lady in front of us at Tim Hortons this morning. We were in the drive thru and my kids always ask if we can pay for the people behind us. We usually do but today when we drove up to the Window we had a surprise. The person ahead of us paid for our order, and I'll tell you that was totally unexpected. My order was just over 12 dollars and I couldn't believe someone paid for it. I gave the cashier the money I was going to pay for my order and the next order and had her use it on the next few orders. Thank you so much for adding that much more excitement to our Tim Hortons visit.
Today at our restaurant,Michigan Diner on Tecumseh and Lauzon, this amazing and adorable gentleman, gave one of our servers $100 bill to pay for the meals of other costumers, and the others paid it forward all day long, it was amazing to witness this kindness and generosity, bless your beautiful soul,Sir!!!
I had a car accident on Buckingham today where I was 100% at fault. Although I sustained minor injuries, the care I received from EMS and surrounding neighbors were gracious & compassionate! One neighbour provided me with a bottle water. Another walking by was the first on the scene and made sure I was alright! I wish I had gotten your names. A gentleman (Al) from the area called police and ambulance on my behalf. He helped my daughter empty personal belongings from my vehicle and provided us with a ride home afterwards. The owner of the vehicle I hit was calm & showed concern for my wellbeing! EMS gave me excellent care (blood pressure & EKG) All results were clear! I sustained minor injuries to my sternum! I am grateful to you all. Your help and concerns eased my shell shocked nerves which kept me calm and free from distress! Thank you my neighbouring Windsorites!
Yesterday morning I was heading south on Gladstone and there was a school bus on Erie stopped right before the intersection with doors open and flashers on. I stayed at the stop sign even though I was proceeding straight ahead until the bus finished loading. Was that the proper thing to do?apparently not according to the cars behind me but I feel that the safety of children is more important than rushing somewhere. What's the law there? I have no idea.
To the women who took charge at directing traffic at the accident on tecumseh @12:30pm today I was trying to give you a complement but I think you took it the wrong way. I was impressed with how you took charge of the scene especially since you were just a bystander. I told the passenger In my vehicle as soon as I seen you take charge how that right there is a person you want working for you. You were amazing. Hope you see this.
Everyday I drive on Dominion and everyday I have come close to being hit head on. Going up dominion towards cabana at the curve it never fails that the cars coming north around the curve are going over 60mph or more, the POSTED SPEED is 20mph for that curve for a reason, many of these cars end up crossing the line due to their speed into my lane coming straight at me. I can see the shocked looks on their faces, I'm sure they see the terror on mine.
It seems to worsen with the start of the school year.
2. Are the drivers that feel they have the right of way to come into my lane when there is a legally parked car on the street instead of waiting for me to pass and causing a back up of cars because now the cars behind me can't go anywhere until these impaitent drivers get by. Or that can't stop to let someone turn into their driveway again causing a back up.
I don't understand why people find it so difficult to follow the rules it would keep traffic flowing and avoid unnecessary backups on a busy street. I love when I see the cops pull them over .more copa need to patrol this area during morning/ afternoon rush hours its a gold mine.
Today a kind gentleman in line with me at Tim Hortons on walker and wyandotte, bought a dozen of the smiley cookies for me to bring to work and share with the kids in my program. Was so nice of him and the kids were excited to get a treat. ☺️
