Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I just wanted to thank the kind man who stepped in to help a small group of young girls at Devonshire mall on Friday, February 26. They were being scolded loudly by a woman about taking a sip from their drink cups while wearing their masks in the mall. She screamed at them while she tugged in her child who was crying, telling them they were putting her at risk because she had cancer. Well guess what lady, I did too and I try to avoid busy places like malls for that reason. Regardless, this post is not about Karen it's about the very kind man who stepped in to help these girls. Thank you kind sir for seeing a situation and stepping in. I appreciate you being there to help. So thankful for people like you in this world. ❤️
As I go back out into the City with stores reopening, I am saddened by what I have seen. A grown man berating a teenage store employee because he can not just walk into the store because it's at capacity, An older woman getting snippy with a girl at another store because they can not offer extra discounts at this time with coupons. I have seen lots of people refusing to follow the health and safety guidlines/ law to keep your mask up over your nose while in stores after just being told/ asked to do so with many becoming angry and then verbally attacking the store employee. There are people wearing spit guards that offer no protection for anyone and think it's ok to berate a store employee when asked to wear a face mask instead to go into the store. So many people seem to be attacking innocent store employees that are probably worried if they will still have a store to work at by Summer with so many closing their doors. They are worried about catching COVID from customers who won't follow the safety guidelines and they are tired of going home after each shift having been verbally abused and feeling so drained and let down by their fellow Canadians. It's very sad to see Canadians act this way when we are known all over the world as being kind and apologetic.
I was recently in a hardware store and witnessed an incident that is sickening.
A male customer was asked by a staff member to put his mask on correctly. With that, the customer pulled the mask completely off his face. A manager was called to deal with the customer who became belligerent towards the staff. The manager explained that it was not his rule but, that of the health unit and the Provincial government. At this point, the man said, you're only doing this because I'm black, you're a racist.
Thankfully, the staff and a few customers yelled, "this is not a racial issue".
We are all tired of wearing a mask when we go out; put yourself in an employees shoes where they not only have to wear a mask but, have to deal with angry, ignorant customers.
Start treating people nicer.
Thank you to the young mother and her daughter for the Tim Horton's gift card. I was waiting in line at the Tim Horton's on Lauzon Parkway and Forest Glade drive to get my Mother her weekly treat of an iced coffee. As the young mother and her daughter were leaving the daughter handed me a gift card and wished me a Happy Valentine's Day. Not only did you make my day, you made my Mother's Day also. Thank you again!💗
Today I was driving on Jefferson when I had to merge into the left lane since the lane was ending. I merged safely and with signalling/ enough room, but apparently the man driving behind me didn't feel the same. He sped up, pulled into the left turn lane next to me, and threw something heavy at my car. I was surprised and stopped. My window was rolled down. He rolled down his and proceeded to throw other heavy objects at me/ my car. I was so stunned I didn't get a license plate. It was a grey/ silver car. The guy was wearing a snapback hat. To the man who did that: I hope you have a better day tomorrow. Whatever is going on in your life that caused you to behave in that way must be difficult. I would never want to live my day to day life holding in the anger that you clearly possess.
I get lots of customers a lot of nice friendly ones. There's one in general that goes above and beyond and shows her appreciation to me for what I do. To most it seems like nothing but to me it means a lot. She tipped me $5.00 for no reason. I very much appreciate it and it's friendly customers like yourself that make me love what I do to try and make sure the customers leave with what they were looking for
To the man who was walking 4 very LARGE dogs, off leash, in the park by the Fountainbleau Library, shame on you!
There is a leash law for a reason!
You ruined a lovely walk in the park for others enjoying the day by allowing your dogs to run off leash!
To the woman in the white truck who paid for us in the Tim Hortons DriveThru on Wyandotte and Lauzon around 2:30 on Feb 8th. Thank you so much! That was very sweet of you and made our day!
