Two-seam roses to Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association for making sure the kids have the best coaches - ahem, instructors - available. Thank you for all the superb clinics and training!
A SkyTrain full of rotten tomatoes to the person who put her bags on a free seat on the train. You have the audacity to complain about the, and I quote, an "ignorant, immature punk" who tried to help an elderly woman get a seat. Look in the mirror and see who was ignorant!
Rotten tomatoes to the Now reader who thinks that empty seats on the SkyTrain are for bags - they are for people! Roses to the young "punk" who thought the bags should be removed to allow an elderly woman to sit down.
A busload of rotten tomatoes to the writer who complained about the child throwing a tantrum on the 323 Newton Exchange bus. You obviously do not have kids or you'd know that kids actually do have a mind of their own. If you can't handle it, stay home!
Rotten tomatoes to the person who wrote about the parent "not having any control over her screaming child on the Newton bus." Who are you to judge? Maybe the child was sick, or the parent was having a rough day. Try being more understanding. Next time catch a cab - that way you can sit by yourself.
Rotten tomatoes to the writer who complained about the child on the bus. I am appalled that you can be so rude! You are very quick to judge, have you ever thought maybe this child could have autism or another special need?, I have a special needs child with autism-ADHD and she throws tantrums but can't be helped. So show some compassion.
A train load of rotten tomatoes to all you disgusting slobs who throw your dirty diapers and garbage out of your vehicle in public parks. What is the matter with you? Were you raised by pigs? The garbage can is usually 10 feet away. Don't be so lazy.
Another smelly bag full of rotten tomatoes to the irresponsible dog owner who had her canine tied up on the porch and barking angrily while I was with my dog across the street. Do you even realize what you are doing is illegal? You are also putting people and our dogs in danger. If it's going to bark like that, take it inside before it severely hurts anybody instead of yelling at it for it to stop!
A truckload of rotten tomatoes to the person who kicked our fence three times in a row. Did you know the old person who had to fix it had back surgery? This person had to take pain killers afterward, too. Karma to you! Hope you cannot sleep at night! There is someone above watching you even though we don't know you.
Tomatoes to Carol Berner for wasting time and money by taking her appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada. Serve your jail time already!
Rotten tomatoes to the woman who called our Canadian national anthem a "stupid song." I agree with the first writer - shame on you!
A green bin full of rotten tomatoes to the people who are too lazy to recycle. I understand that people work and sorting recyclables can be an inconvenient "chore," but that is no excuse to toss everything in the trash, or worse on the street. Brilliant red roses to those who take the time to do their part for our beautiful planet.
