Rotten tomatoes to the all the drivers! My poor grandmother was trying to cross the road while helping me deliver newspapers in the pouring rain but no car stopped to let her through and when someone did, he got angry because my grandmother got confused whether he was trying to turn or go straight. I understand you're in a rush but a little hand gesture from you would have been nice.
Rotten tomatoes to those whose lives are such failures they take it out on the innocent.
Rotten tomatoes to the weird women for picking up her dog and walking away with it just because my dog wanted to socialize. If you can't raise a dog to be sociable, maybe you should buy an animal that does not socialize.
Rotten tomatoes to the parents of students at Cougar Canyon Elementary and Seaquam Secondary for endangering the students by making illegal U-turns and jaywalking. It is only a matter of time before a student is hit.
Rotten tomatoes to people who pull the racism card when something doesn't go their way. The real question is, why do you think you are more important than the other people who are being assisted ahead of you? To berate someone who is doing their job makes you lower than low.
I see people, not colour. A huge bouquet of roses to the owners of ABC Country Restaurant for graciously providing a delicious Christmas dinner with all the trimmings to single parents and their kids. Merry Christmas!
A bouquet of roses to all who attended the "Deck the Halls" artisan market. You donated $300 and 80 pounds of food to Deltassist and supported artists in our community. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
Rotten tomatoes to the rude sales associates at BC Place for rushing us over sizes for clothes. Where are your manners? It's not our fault the line was big. You need work on your manners.
Rotten tomatoes to all the bad drivers - stay off the road if you can't drive in snow! I didn't even make it in to work because it took me forever just to go about 100 metres, so I gave up and went home.
Roses to former Canuck Trevor Linden for surprising the children at Mary Jane Shannon. It shows you have a very kind heart.
Rotten tomatoes to people who complain about people driving too slow in the snow - those drivers are only doing what they should be doing. Plus, that's exactly what police recommend drivers do! So, be calm and patient behind the wheel and everyone will get to work a lot safer in the snow.
A big bunch of roses to all my friends and clients that are helping me implement my pay it forward project and make a better world. I cannot do it without you. Thank you in advance for all your good deeds. Much gratitude! You all rock my world! You know who you are...
Rotten tomatoes to the Metro Vancouver municipalities.
Where were the salt trucks? Slips and slides and accidents are normal with every snow fall but it should not cause bridges to close.
Rotten tomatoes to the owner of a home with multiple suites in my neighbourhood. You keep getting away with it and your tenants are taking parking from my home. More tomatoes to the City of Surrey for not caring about citizens who are having their neighbourhoods ruined because of the city's inability or unwillingness to enforce the bylaws.
Rotten, invasive tomatoes to the ignorant person who complained about high school students removing invasive plants from Royal Kwantlen Park. One of those kids was my daughter, and the plants being removed were Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy, not Holly. Both these plants are non-native, invasive species, which choke out and kill native plants, hence the removal.
Roses to the kids and staff at Hillcrest Elementary for fantastic Christmas concerts!
