Rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey for our current proliferation of "monster homes." Residents would appreciate some kind of justification from council as to why multiple suites are deemed OK. Long-term residents have been totally ignored, we pay our taxes, abide by the rules and park legally.
Rotten tomatoes to the parents of children who play in the lovely new Blumsen Park who leave trash in the playground. Even if it isn't your trash, show a little community pride and pick up a few pieces and put it in the garbage can provided. It would go a long way to teaching your children to care about their community.
Roses to the City of New Westminster for celebrating Family Day with activities for family members of all ages. Overripe tomatoes to the cities of Surrey and White Rock for apparently ignoring the holiday completely.
Many rotten tomatoes to the engineering department at the City of Surrey. It takes two small dump trucks to load a half-dozen pieces of blacktop that should have been picked up when the job was done. And then there's all the paperwork! What a waste of money.
An intersection full of moulding, rotten tomatoes to the young man who couldn't walk the 20 feet to the crosswalk and who darted out in front of the vehicles that had a left-turn right of way signal. You're lucky you weren't hit.
A street full of rotten tomatoes to the two women who panhandle on the corner of 88th Avenue and King George Boulevard. You are pathetic, you need money to help your four brothers? Well, get a job. And to the fools who give them money, need I say more?
A big bag full of rotten tomatoes to the lady who was accusing me of leaning forward when I was trying to watch the Canucks game at Rogers Arena. If you're that miserable, don't come to a hockey game. Let people have a good time for God's sake.
A truckload of red roses from a proud Grandma to Lord Tweedsmuir's jazz band and to Mr. Rutley for a job well done at the Envision Jazz Festival. Congratulations to all.
A super huge bouquet of roses to the lovely lady (with three children) who turned in my purse at the Tim Hortons on Fraser Highway on Sunday. You will never know how much I appreciated it. My purse had everything in it, so you can see what your honesty meant to this senior. Thank you for being my guardian angel. I know your good deed will come back to you.
A paddy wagon of rotten tomatoes to the person who complained about the Delta police officer who pulls over novice drivers. Pot smoking is rampant in teenage culture today, so get your head out of the sand. You should be thankful that someone is doing their job - it could save a life. If you are innocent, then you have nothing to worry about. Let the police do what they have to do to protect us all.
A semi truck of rotten tomatoes to the guy who hit a white pitbull at the corner of 96th Avenue and 134th Street in Surrey. The least you could have done was offer to help pay for the medical bills the owner was going to have to fork out instead of at first trying to say the dog was hit by a car then finally owning up to the fact that you hit the dog. That poor dog will be lucky if he doesn't lose his leg.
