Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I would to first off say to the lady who came through the drive thru at the McDonald's on Manning Rd., if you were already having a bad day I am sorry that you were, and if you weren't then you should be ashamed.
The debit/ credit was down and not just at this specific location, it was posted at the drive thru before entering the lane and at the door before entering the store, and yet you continued to drive through, and up to the speak where you then yelled at the employee on the other end about how "they should know if the machine is working or not for credit, and now you are stuck in a line you can't get out of" despite already being told that was not working, and being apologized too.
Well I was that person and I'm not ok with the attitude you gave me. I have dealt with rude customers before, and especially during this horrible Covid-19 situation, as I have been working since this all started.
I however can not control what an electronical device can or can not do, we were all trying our best today despite the circumstances, and you not only yelled at me but my manager too, who also did not deserve the treatment you dished out.
Life happens and some things are out of our control...this was one of them.
I had to get this off my chest. Thank you.
To the house in the 1800 block of Westcott with the 2 dogs that run the neighbourhood, your dogs almost got hit on Tecumseh Rd. I saw them running and went out to get them and bring them back as well as another neighbour, only to be greeted by your son? or son's friend who was screaming to a kid and the dogs to Get the F inside. I know this is a regular occurrence and I know the Humane Society and I believe police have been involved for the one dog going after a girl. PS, your bigger dog isn't that friendly and should be watched better. Also, the boys at the door we're very rude to another neighbour when she told them they need to clean up the dog poop on her grass from your dog....That is responsible pet ownership! 🤦♀️
There is a security guard working at the Royal Bank on Howard who deserves a shout out. He is unfailingly polite and helpful even to the sometimes grumpy customers waiting in line to get into the bank. The wait is often up to 45 minutes but he greets all customers politely, engages in conversation and even brought out a chair for an elderly customer. He makes the wait time much more bearable with his upbeat personality. Well done young man!
Just wanted to give a shout out to the young couple who found my husband's cell phone in the parking lot at Home Depot near Costco on Saturday July 11th around 7pm. Thank you so much for calling the home number and returning it to the Customer Service Desk. Its comforting to know that there is still good people out there. You have been spotted!!!
Thanks for saving the day!!!
I was at giant tiger Off of Pillette Rd., Thursday, July 2. As I was walking in, a lady' was giving the young man at the door a hard time because somebody was in the store without a mask. He told her she had a medical condition. Her response was did she have a card? Shame on you for taking your frustration out on this young man who is just doing his job. I'm sure he's making no more than minimum wage. If you had an issue with this you should've asked to speak to the manager. It's not up to this young man to police and confront people. The sign on the door did not say mandatory masks. What is wrong with you? If you didn't like it maybe you should've just left. There is so much rudeness and disrespect in this city, that makes me sad. People need to relax and just be kind to one another.
On Thursday July 2nd, around 5pm a honest person found my phone at the Canadian Tire in South Windsor. If anyone knows someone who found and returned a phone today at CT, please tag them in this post. I would like to personally thank them and give them a token of my appreciation. Also a big shout out and thanks to Eric who was working at the customer service desk and was an immense help to me!!
Last Saturday, June 27, 2020, I lost a gold bracelet that I have worn for over 30 years. I never take it off. I was at my son's house and we took pictures Friday night and my bracelet is in the picture, so I lost it Saturday, the only place I went other than home, was Freshco on Malden road in Lasalle. I have searched my home, yard, car, grocery bags, purse. The only place I could have lost it is either in the store or in the parking lot. I am hoping that if someone found it they could find it in their heart to return it to me as it means a lot to me.
Just to begin, I have never posted anything like this but today is the exception. Way to go Town of Lakeshore! Went to spend a beautiful day at Belle River beach and greeted by BEACH CLOSED signs. By-law officers and OPP were present and doing their job ( politely I may add). When I asked about the beach closing, I was told it was in response to overcrowding and a few misbehaving people not following the rules. COVID is real. Yes, I as much as anyone understands that. However, closing the very few recreational areas left available, not necessary. Then I say ticket or warn offenders, patrol the beach and punish the offenders at the time. Be proactive and take care of the problem at that time. Do not be reactive to those few who now have taken away the beach space for families, children, couples, friends etc... I sat on the grassy park section and watched many sad children being turned away crying not understanding why they had to leave. One child said I don't understand, we are staying far away from others, why do we have to leave? Brilliant...now how long will this recreation area be closed and more kids and families have to suffer for the actions of a few? This bureaucratic wise sweep reactive decision making is maddening and very disappointing for the town of Belle River. Then we were asked to leave the grassy park area away from the water to be surrounded by fencing. Wow, slight overkill there. Kids playing, throwing footballs, picnic lunches, sorry, closed!!! Fence up, how lovely. There are always those that won't follow rules, that is society. Deal with those few and let others have some minuscule sense of normalcy. Absolute shame on Lakeshore council 😡😡😡
