Bouquets of rainbow roses to Averi at Restwell Sleep Products. She was so helpful and went out of her way to provide extraordinary customer service. She displayed the kind of caring attitude and work ethic when providing customer service that you do not find everyday. Thanks again Averi!
A stationwagon full of rotten tomatoes and assorted other household garbage to the middle aged man who loaded his old beater of a car with garbage and then loaded it all into the commercial dumpster at Nordel Shopping Centre one morning last week. Businesses have to pay to have those dumpsters emptied, and you should really have the decency to dispose of your crap properly like respectable homeowners. Stop being so cheap and lazy!
Tonnes of red roses to the gentleman playing cards in Cloverdale Athletic Park on Monday, May 7. I was collecting donations for hitting cancer out of the park and I approached the gentlemen. I was almost in tears with how generous they were, not only with money but also with well wishes for the little guy that has cancer. Thank you, your kindness was greatly appreciated!
Rotten tomatoes to Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode for her comment, "We've approved one secondary suite, and really do people expect us to knock on the door of somebody who has two suites and say within two months you have to vacate this home." Yes, the homeowner is breaking the law. Surrey made the law, now enforce it!
Rotten tomatoes to the the thief who may have surprised his mum with an early Mother's Day present. Was it a three-foot-high black ceramic planter filled with helleborus and primulas, spiked with red dogwood twigs and surrounded by moss? Well, it's stolen property; it's mine and I want it back. Shame on you if you keep it. I loved my front door planter. It changed with the seasons; winter, filled with evergreen boughs; spring, helleborus and primulas; summer, ferns and grasses; fall, chrysanthemums and grasses. If I replace it, will this soulless creature come back and steal it again?
A hail of rotten tomatoes upon all those ablebodied clowns who pointedly take leisurely strolls across busy streets - some of them, by diagonal routes - with reckless disregard to the traffic dangers that arise on account of their mind-numbing moseying.
Five maybe nine barrels of rotten tomatoes to grocery stores that sell rotten tomatoes.
A tailpipe full of rotten tomatoes to the person driving 20 kilometres under the speed limit while in the fast lane on 176th Street Tuesday afternoon. This person even had the audacity to offer a thumbs up to those who passed them. I hope you are familiar with Dennis Leary's wonderful song and you take his lyrics to heart. There is a reason for the signs posted all over North America that state: slower traffic keep right.
And another thing. Learn to merge, people. It's called an acceleration ramp for a reason. Accelerate to freeway speed for God's sake.
Roses to all the people who are keeping an eye out for debris from last year's tsunami in Japan and handling it with care. If it were your belongings, I'm sure you'd appreciate such efforts, too.
