Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I was just reaching out because I brought my 4 year old son to get tested for Covid at the downtown campus yesterday evening after having a rough night. You would expect it to be a typical visit to the hospital which isn't usually an enjoyable time. I could not believe how friendly and positive the nurses were, as well as professional and informative. The part that really made the visit different was the fact that my 4 year old AFTER getting the swab (which I don't know if you ever had it, looks incredibly uncomfortable even for an adult) still came out of that appointment excited and full of laughter and love. I give all that credit to the very friendly Doctor that did his check up, I unfortunately didn't catch his name in the moment but he's a younger gentleman with longer, brown and shaggy/ curly hair. All he talked about was that doctor on our drive home, and even committed to being a doctor next Halloween(which sounded like a big deal to him haha). I just wanted to put this message out there just incase anyone knows who he is and can give an extra Thank you for his added hospitality, positivity and the feeling you genuinely care especially with the normal work load during this difficult time.
On November 12, two of my daughters were at the mall with 3 small children, my grandson had a seizure, a BIG THANK YOU to Mall Security, Guest Services, and the janitor for your quick and helpful assistance. Also Thank you to the 2 EMS that responded so quickly to help him
Shoutout to the man the chased the purse snatcher this morning (Nov 10 , 10:30a.m) at the Superstore on Walker Rd. The good Samaritan chased a man who stole a woman's purse and caught the guy and got the purse back.
You are awesome, restores my faith in humanity 👍

I have been so impressed with the way Windsor has been doing with the covid rules and keeping our numbers down, but this incident rubbed me the wrong way. I recently went to get my hair cut. Very clean and needed appointment. When l got there, l was screened. One of the questions, have you been around someone who has been around a positive covid patient. Yes l have. My daughter is a PSW worker. Well they said, we cannot cut your hair. Our owners do not want the liability, really l said? So you are not allowing any essential workers to get their haircuts? No we cannot. Their last question was - are you an essential worker. This is so unfair to all our health care workers, truck drivers, etc that have put their lives at risk to save ours and they cannot be treated to a haircut. I will have to find a new place to go.
I know this has been talked about A LOT in Windsor, but with EC row under construction I feel the need to say it again. The correct way to merge at a merge zone is to ZIPPER MERGE (take turns) from both lanes AT the merge point! Cars should not be lined up for 3 km in a straight line while drivers try to block the people attempting to do it right. There are signs that say, take turns. This means zipper merging, NOT forming a single file line. Windsor has trouble grasping this concept....but with practice I believe it can be done. So please......ZIPPER MERGE PEOPLE!
Last weekend I lost my handicap placard for my car. It was extremely windy and it must have blown off my dashboard as I was putting groceries in my car. I was unable to get to a Service Ontario center this week to see about getting a replacement. Today (Saturday) I came home to find it in my mailbox. Thank goodness the government puts our address on the opposite side. Thank you to the good Samaritan that went out of their way to drop it off. I wish I was home to thank you personally.
Thanks so much to my east end Walmart bodyguard, Ethan, for walking me to my car after I finished my shopping this evening. It was late and I was a bit nervous on my own. I felt much more at ease thanks to your kindness!!
