Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
In spite of all the haters, some people still make me believe there's more good than bad. Was at Superstore today for just a couple things so didn't get a cart. Well of course I bought about 10 things. I dropped them twice! And a wonderful lady told me to put them in her cart. Turns out I forgot something in her cart and paid for it. When I went for my wallet she said "No! Merry Christmas" Omg she was so nice! So I went thru Tim's drive through and paid it forward by paying for the car behind me. Spirits instantly lifted. Faith restored. Thank you lady, you rock!
I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude and appreciation for all of the healthcare workers and hospital staff. I was recently at Hotel Dieu for some routine procedures and I must say I was met with the kindest and friendliest staff. Each person I came into contact with went above and beyond in making me feel comfortable, reassuring me and of course, taking proper COVID precautions. Being there, spending just a short time with these wonderful people has really caused me to sit and reflect on all the hardships they have faced this year. We discussed how many of the nurses, doctors and other staff won't be able to see even their immediate family over the holidays as they will be working tirelessly to care for regular people like you and me. It is my hope for the holidays that we all each take a second to thank a healthcare worker and acknowledge just how much we appreciate their sacrifices. Employees who are overworked, under paid and sacrificing so much of their lives to care for complete strangers, to hold the hands of patients who are scared, becoming family to those who's families can't be with them. It takes incredibly selfless and kindhearted people to do that. Words truly can not express how appreciative I am. Thank you to our Healthcare Heroes.
To the young man who was banking at the Windsor Family Credit Union on Dougall yesterday morning (Thursday December 17, 2020), please be more considerate and aware in the future. We all need to be a little more kind, particularly to our elderly and vulnerable neighbours. My 91 year old, legally blind, grandfather walked to the bank in order to avoid public transportation because of the risk of Covid-19. He completed his banking but was too tired to walk home. He asked the teller to order him a cab and then made his way to the only chair in the bank so that he could sit while he waited. You, an able-bodied young man, brushed past him and sat down in the chair before he could sit. My 91 year old grandfather was made to lean against the wall for the entirety of the wait. I hope you see this and I hope that next time when someone else less capable than yourself is nearby, you think more about how you can accommodate that person rather than make their life more difficult.
Spotted this used mask at the end of our front walk. Please people don't toss your used masks as they are getting a bad as Tim Hortons garbage.
My son works at Zehrs in Lasalle doing click and collect. Yesterday during his shift after packing a ladies car with her groceries, she handed my son a little gift bag filled with candy as well as a gift card to Tim Horton's, and a thank you card saying our family is thankful for essential workers. It made my son's night! So to the lady that is showing her gratitude and appreciation to essential workers, thank you! You are a class act!
On December 13th I had lunch at Jose's on Howard and when I received my bill some kind soul had paid a portion of the bill. This just made my day. Thank you so much.
I wanted to share a feel good story about my shopping experience at the Devonshire Mall this afternoon, December 11th around 4pm. My daughter and I went to the mall to finish up some Christmas shopping and we went to Garage. My daughter was trying on some clothing and there were two girls who had just come into the store. They looked very happy, laughing and having a great time enjoying each other's company while browsing the clothes. My daughter came out as they waited to enter the fitting room and they just started complimenting her. You look so great in those pants! Those pants look amazing on you! You need to buy those, they look so comfy and cozy! It brought a smile to my daughter's face as well as mine. The employee showing the ladies to their change rooms was also complimented. You look perfect in that outfit! Wow, you look so good - that outfit looks so good on you! . Again, more smiles from everyone involved. The girls names were Veronica and Annie (I heard the staff member ask when directing them to their change rooms). To Veronica and Annie, you two girls brought so much joy and happiness to us today. I wish more women would build each other up, share compliments, create feel good vibes and smile more often. You made my day. You made me realize that there is still happiness to be had even in these horrible times. Thank you for being you! Keep it up!
Morning of December 10th around 9:30am at Sobeys on Amy Croft, I was shopping for some supplies for a Christmas package for kids from our church. A sweet lady named Janette commented on the items in my cart because I had such a large quantity of the same item. When I explained what it was for, she pulled out a $20 to donate to the cause and wouldn't take no for an answer. I just wanted to give a shout out for the generous and thoughtful act of kindness.
