Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
To the lady who was exiting Zehrs yesterday (June 18th) on Lauzon Rd at around 4:40pm, who either jokingly or was serious when you said "Don't worry lady, i'm not going to rob you" actually really effected me afterwards.
From my point of view, this is what transpired.
I was leaving Zehrs, and i was deep in thought. My mum is in the hospital dying of cancer and I was actually debating if the 2 boxes of Chamomile Tea I bought her would be enough or should I head back in and pick up some more. I was also displeased because the second reason I was at Zehrs was to pick up formula for my baby and it was not in stock.
I noticed a person out of the corner of my eye and thought that I might have stepped in front of you because I wasn't paying attention. I looked back to make sure I had given you enough space to walk and noticed you were walking fast and thought you were in a hurry so I attempted to move over. You then proceeded to say "Don't worry lady, i'm not going to rob you". I was completely taken back because i had no clue what was happening. I tried to explain what was actually happening and you repeated what you said and walked away, but not before giving me a look of utter disgust.
Now i'm not sure if you were only joking or if you were serious, but I found it very hurtful and uncalled for. Your tone implied I was being racist in your opinion because I looked back and attempted to move over. I also had a short handle purse, and if my hand was on it (the same arm it was draped over), it was only to keep it from falling off my shoulder. Not clutching it because I thought you were going rob me.
Please be more careful in the words you choose to say to people, you don't know what their thinking or going through. I also apologize if my actions were misinterpreted, I was actually attempting to be polite but it did't come across that way to you. But you also cant bite off everyone's head who looks at you, that seems like a really stressful way to live.
Yesterday, my boyfriend (now fiance) celebrated our 5 year anniversary at my favourite restaurant, Red Lobster. He did the unthinkable and shocked me with a proposal that I thought would never happen. Another customer that was there at the time had paid $20 of our bill as a congratulatory gift for our engagement. If you happen to see this, please let it be known that you had made our day that much more special and it was VERY much appreciated! Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart! ❤
I was at a funeral June 17, 2019 for a young woman who was 19 yrs of age. She had lost her 7 year battle with cancer. As we drove to her resting place we drove by Essex High School where she attended. As we got close it was hard to contain our emotions as we saw students and teachers line the road with banners and balloons. As if that wasn't emotional we turned the corner to pass McDonald's where Tina has worked and again the street was lined with staff and managers also paying their respects. Well Done Essex, it was a beautiful send off for a beautiful young woman. RIP Tina..
To the person who broke into our shed.
Thanks for stealing a bunch of our stuff and leaving your crappy bike behind. If you want it back you can return our things. Thanks for being an awesome human being and breaking in our door!
If people can look out for a newer bike we won from Tim's it's red. Pictured below is the bike left behind If anyone recognizes who it belongs to.
To the wonderful young man that played with my son and his friend at the fountain bleu park. You have been spotted! You were so patient with our boys. Thank you for letting them play with you and your basketball.
Tonight my husband and I had an unusual occurrence with our new vehicle. We apologize for your inconvenience passing our vehicle on Riverside Dr. We are overwhelmed with the dozens of people that stopped to see if we were ok, needed a phone or any other assistance. The Windsorites that stopped were of all ages, ethnicities and were in cars, vans, trucks and motorcycles, the true diversity of our city! A special thank you to the nearby neighbour man that brought me a chair while waiting for the tow truck and also invited me into his home to sit with his wife and have a coffee! He spoke of being here for 11 yrs and how much he loves Windsor. Your kindness and infectious smile really made an upsetting incident so much better. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to stop to assist us, I hope to pay your kindness forward!
To the dark grey Jeep Patriot who drives up Cabana almost every morning around 7:50am.
You are so impatient. You try to pass everyone and speed up into the left turning lane on Cabana when the light is red. When the light turns green you start speeding and you go STRAIGHT trying to pass everyone in the straight lane. You cannot go straight out of a left turning lane? You've done this multiple times. One day someone is going to merge into that lane before you do and you're going to cause an accident.
I've even seen you try to merge into a turning lane extremely fast infront of a huge bulldozer and he had to slam on his brakes and swerve into the left lane causing us all to slam on our brakes to avoid an accident.
You are SO impatient it is ridiculous. If you're in that much of a hurry, leave a little earlier. I'm tired of you putting my life and everyone else's life at risk every morning on my way to work. Wait in the proper lane like the rest of us have to.
You're going to kill someone!
On Sunday may 19th you assisted my father In law at the corner of Lauzon and Wyandotte, you found him and started to do cpr. With out you my family would not have been able to say their good byes and have some kind of peace. On behalf of all of them we'd like to say thank you for that and thank you for being with him for that time when no one else was.
