Do you have somebody you would like to thank? Or maybe something you want to get off your chest? Send your rose or rotten tomato to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep submissions under 50 words. Watch for Roses and Rotten Tomatoes in the Thursday issue of the now
A truckload of roses to the honest couple who turned in my wallet to Superstore on King George Boulevard in Newton Sunday night. Thank you very much. Your honesty was greatly appreciated.
Rotten tomatoes to the person complaining about their neighbour using their garage for storage and parking their cars on the driveway. If they want to use their garage for storage it's their choice. Why should it bother you?
A dozen and a half long-stemmed roses that I delivered to Mayor Dianne Watts at Surrey City Hall for rejecting the Gateway casino project on rural farmland. (True story, I dropped them off Thursday afternoon, I hope she liked them - a colourful mix of reds, pinks, yellows and whites.)
Countless beautiful multicoloured roses for those people who care so well for their children, family and friends.
A big bouquet of roses and thanks to Paul and staff at Budget Brake & Muffler at 80th Avenue and 120th Street for their prompt, efficient and friendly service.
A truckload of rotten tomatoes to the people dumping their old chesterfields and chairs at Surrey Memorial Hospital thrift store. You are taking the money intended for our patients at SMH in order for us to dispose of your junk.
A field of beautiful red roses to Laura's Coffee on the Corner for its continued support of local artists and for providing new artists with a place to sell their crafts. It has been very appreciated, thank you.
A honey wagon full of rotten tomatoes to the person(s) who uses Sunnyside Acres urban forest as a toilet. Please stop. Others use this park to run, walk and enjoy. Finding your waste two feet off a well-used trail is disgusting. Carry a dog waste bag with your Kleenex supply and use the bag.
Carloads of rotten tomatoes to drivers who, when in a left-turn bay, don't enter the intersection when given a green light. Drives me nuts when I'm in the vehicle behind idiots like this, because it usually results in my car not making the light - and having to wait another minute or so for another green. Enter the intersection and don't wait at the stop line!
Bouquet of roses to the people who worked and financially supported the cleanup of the four signs to the entrances of Rosewood Park. Rotten tomatoes to the people who wouldn't help or support the subdivision project.
Rotten tomatoes to the YMCA - can you get any busier? I would like to echo the recent rotten tomato in the Now. Try parking at the Y - both lots are a gong show. What's the point of having a $100 family membership when we have to park three blocks away in the rain?
Rotten tomatoes to all the husbands who take their wives for granted and assume they will do everything so that they can go out and play.
Rotten tomatoes to family members who put their personal belief systems ahead of their own flesh and blood. Maybe one day you will pull your heads out of the sand and start enjoying life you have.
A shopping cart of rotten tomatoes to the people in grocery stores who rush out of an aisle, shopping cart first, into the arterial walkways of the store. Is it too much to ask to be looking for the cereal aisle without having to worry about some idiot running me over? Surrey streets are bad enough. Do you even drive like that? Nevermind, you probably do.
