Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I'm a security guard who works in the parking booth at Met hospital and I get all kinds of people coming through in a day and I hear every complaint you can imagine. Some are happy to pay the 3 to 7 dollars for parking and some are not....
When you came through my booth this morning you were clearly frustrated. I asked for the $7 payment and you snapped back at me about how you and your son waited 3 hours to see your doctor and now you have to pay... you were upset, frustrated and you were venting it out on me.
After you drove off I felt bad that I had to charge you for parking since you had had a bad experience.... dealing with the public is not easy, but you what you did next is something that never happened to me in my 10 years of service to the public.... YOU CAME BACK!! You came back to apologize!!
You said to me that your son was so upset with your outburst that he was crying
and he told you "Mom!! She was happy and smiling until you yelled at her!"
Even though I tried to tell you that I understood, you insisted that I accept your apology for being a bad person for taking out your frustrations on me who had nothing to do with it.
I want to thank you for being a good person and an incredible role model to your son.
The next time someone comes through and complains or calls me names, I will remember you...
Your apology will go a long long way.
You were in the drive though Monday morning at mc Donald's on drouillard and tec. You were infront of me in your pick up truck. I went to pay for my coffee and they told me you paid.
I just want to say thank you and I hope you see this. I really needed that boost.
To the person who decided to shatter my car window at the river today... I hope you feel good about yourself. My sisters and I had a beautiful afternoon. We ate at the Bistro and went to see our local talent in Matilda. (Which was so awesome) It was a bit upsetting and scary to come out to see glass everywhere. I hope you got what you wanted out of my little flowery bingo bag. We would never leave our actual purses in the car. If you would have asked me for some money, I probably would have given you some. I'll say a prayer for you tonight.
My husband had a stroke a few days ago while driving. He was having a hard time pulling over. Thankfully there was a young woman driving beside him that noticed that something was wrong and that he was struggling. She was able to help him pull off to the side of the road safely. This young woman was honestly an angel in disguise. She stayed with him until an ambulance arrived and even followed him to the hospital to make sure that he was okay. I really want to thank this lovely woman in person. She probably saved my husbands life. Her name was Keyanna (not quite sure of the correct spelling) and she was wearing a Shukra uniform. Please share this post in hopes that she may see it. I know my husband would love to thank her as well.
To the guy working at Taco Bell In East Park Plaza around 3:20 pm:
You are SO GOOD at your job!
I asked for a lot of hot sauce as I'm disappointingly used to receiving only 1 pkg per taco, and boy did you deliver the goods!
You are here by pronounced the King of Hot Sauce!
Thank you :)
Thank you to the kind woman in the red Jeep at the Tim Horton's on Jefferson for paying for my coffee on November 22nd. Your act of kindness sparked some much needed joy.
I'd just like everyone to know there's a stalker on here and in the city. They saw one of my comments, viewed my picture which was taken at work with another associate/ friend and they went to every place in the city until they found the coworker. Extremely creepy
I wanted to give a shout out to Met ER, Nurses and Doctors late Sunday night for giving me the best of care. I managed to drive myself to the ER with what I found out to be a very critical situation. I got a very polite lecture saying I should've called an ambulance but didnt because I didn't have the funds to pay for the ambulance and honestly, complete embarrassment. Having said that, after triage and registration I waited a total of 8 mins in the waiting room. They greeted me with a wheelchair and rushed me in a bed. I had 3 nurses, ER doctor, a specialist and tests quickly working on me to control the situation. Twelve hours later after vitals were stabilized and situation was controlled I could go home with strict instructions and follow up care. I commend the hospital and everyone involved. They were compassionate, knowledgeable, precise, decreet and treated me like I was a member of their family. I get emotional thinking about it every day and how this could've turned out differently had it not been for the standard of care I received. Kudos to MET HOSPITAL ❤
