Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I was in the dollarstore on walker by home depot this evening. I was there with my 5 kids. We were standing in the choolate isle, where I was letting my children pick a treat. My five your old son was just standing there looking at all the options. He had his back turned to oncoming traffic. An older man comes behind him without him noticing. I was about to ask my son to let the gentleman walk by when he physical pulled on my son's sweater to move him out of the way. Then goes on to tell me that I need to control my children. His words were " control them. There yours to control. Control them!" I was so caught off guard I didn't even have a response for him. But my blood was boiling by the time I got to the check out. Was I over reacting or should I have said somethhing?

I'm just getting back to working out after being really sick and today was my first day of personal training. I'm really overweight and am trying hard to get to a much healthier place for myself and my four kids. When I walked into the gym at the Y this morning (March 23), I was feeling tired and anxious. There was a gentleman on the first bike who stopped me and said, "Hey. We're here and that's what counts!" I want to thank him, because that little bit of encouragement changed the entire course of my workout and helped to remind me of why I'm in there every day. So, thank you, sir. You're awesome!!
I waited on a beautiful family at Red Lobster Thurday night. They were out celebrating Kaylee's 18th birthday. Kaylee you left your birthday card from your grandparents....message me
To the driver of the black dodge caravan.
I spent the night up with my child because she was unable to sleep due to illness. I misplaced my keys to my car and had to call an uber for a ride to work. I was dreading going into work because of how cranky and grumpy I would be because of how bad my morning had been. As I waited in the backseat of my ride in line at the drivethru I started thinking about how difficult my day is going to be and how hard it was to go grocery shopping if I can't find my keys. We drove up to the window and the lady said "today is your lucky day, the vehicle ahead of you paid for your order." Out of all the things that went wrong and were going to go wrong today, you provided some light. Thank you so much for taking the time to care about the random stranger behind you. I have never thought to pay for an order behind me because it's never happened to me. I read about it or someone might tell me it happened to them but I would just think it wouldn't be that big of a deal. It happened to me, and I can tell you that it made my morning. Suddenly the day seemed easier to tackle. I felt more confident that it actually is possible to make it through the day without falling apart. A coffee and a breakfast sandwich paid for by a stranger gave me hope and made me happy, so weird.
So to that driver in that black dodge caravan, thank you for knowing that you just made someone's day 100% better. I hope me paying for the order behind me had the same outcome.
Have A blessed day!!!
To the woman driving the white mini-van and the gentleman driving the black charger (at Central Park Athletics) in the parking lot, you were BOTH wrong. I'm the driver from behind you both. To the woman driving the mini-van, you should never just stop in the driving lane. You weren't even at one of the main entrances. You did not put on a signal or your four-ways. How were the vehicles behind you to know what you were doing? To the man in the Charger, I know the stopped van was frustrating but you shouldn't have tried to pass in the parking lot of a place that runs activities for students during March Break. To the child, that swung open the back door of the van and jumped out with your sports bag, you were lucky!! You came very close to being seriously injured this morning.
Parents, if your child is able enough to attend 'sports camps', they are able to walk the extra 25 feet that would be required if the driver actually parked in a parking spot and then let the child out of the vehicle. NEVER just stop and let your kids out in front of traffic. To all drivers, please practice patience when driving, it's March Break. Kids are running everywhere and sadly, they don't always look where they are going.
Wow, can't believe this one, " More than 400 City of Windsor managers and non-union employees are getting retroactive pay hikes that will cost municipal taxpayers $2.4 million after a commissioned study found they were falling behind their counterparts in other Ontario cities." How on earth does Windsor even rate compared to municipalities like London, Chatham-Kent, Kitchener, Greater Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Brampton and Mississauga, and the regions of Halton, Niagara, Waterloo and Durham. I'm pretty sure they are doing much better financially than Windsor. And when I read this part, "He thinks only cities outside of the GTA should be used for future comparisons." Ohhhh did you include GTA in this comparison (commissioned study)??? I totally agree GTA has more qualified staff and should make more,we don't even compare!! GTA a whole different ballgame!!! City of Windsor managers, should manage Windsor before even considering taking more tax money from us!! Seriously, go to these other places, see what's actually being done...lots, mega changes!!! Look at what Windsor has to offer compared to some of those municipalities..NADA!!! But it's ok... our unemployment rate is high (including city workers from budget cuts), most of our roads are past due for repair ( not just from this winter Drew, just a continuous quick fill, every year!!), jobs are contracted out in many fields, many areas of dispute by many taxpayers,!!! It would be great if we (Windsor) were booming like many of those other cities, we are being deprived of what our tax dollars could really do for this city!! We are faaar from booming, not even a glimpse!!! Take Kitchener and Waterloo for instance, been there? growing like crazy!!! So many changes all over those municipalities, so upbeat, non stop changes in infrastructure all over!! You should be ashamed that Windsor taxpayer money goes to such petty stuff, like Christmas lights, fixing an ice cream train or whatever it will be?? How much true revenue did or will any of that bring into Windsor? Windsor needs to be competitive, not by giving retroactive wages!! When I read this...." Mayor Drew Dilkens said council was obligated by contract to carry out the non-union salary review and was taken aback when he saw the numbers in the report." Of course he was "taken aback", I'm sure all he could see were $$dollar signs$$, like a little kid reaching into a jar of special treats!!! How much more do we have to pay now??? I like many others are getting gouged enough and not seeing the any real benefits. We'd all be "taken aback" if we received retro payback for our wasted tax dollars!!! Just my opinion, everyone has one!!!
