Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
This evening I took my 2 daughters ages 7 & 8 out for girls night. They were supposed to go to their dads for Christmas tonight however he cancelled. My girls were pretty upset so I said let's go have some fun. Now I mean with Christmas just passing by spending extra money was not in the cards, but I felt compelled to brighten their night. So we went into my go to place Nail Tech. So I sat there with my daughters they had their nails done for New Years Eve and I had mine down as well. While we were there, another woman and her daughter were there getting their nails done. They finished first, as the woman was leaving she decided to pay for my 2 daughters nail appt. She didn't say a word just paid and went on her way. As I am a regular there the tech was like do you know her? No not at all, why? And then she told me. I just about burst into tears. We needed this. My children needed to know that there are amazing people in the world and they do things for no recognition, just the thought of making someone else happy. Well you sure did make our night. It sparked up a bunch of great conversations and she made an a amazing impression on my children's lives tonight.
I wasn't able to catch the lady in the parking lot - but who ever you are out there you were an angel in disguise tonight. Thank you for adding some bright light to our night out ❤️❤️❤️✌️✌️
I was shopping at the dollar tree in Lasalle and had a very helpful young man help me he was super friendly and efficient and he even helped me carry stuff out to my car, nobody does that anymore, I see him often and he's my favorite cashier, always makes friendly small talk and thanks me for shopping there, I believe his name is Justin, you've been spotted! They are lucky to have you and more employees should be like you! One of the reasons I prefer shopping at this store is his service
Well after a day shopping for supplies for a new bathroom we decided to stop for dinner at Appleby's. They were busy but we didn't mind. Watched a little playing hide a seek with my hubby. When we went to leave our waitress informed us that our bill had been taken care of! Yes we could not believe it. The parents bought our dinner. Well we paid it forward with a generous tip. Thank you again whoever you are. Made our day!
On this damp Christmas eve, Starbucks was pretty busy @ tecumseh and roseville, as me and my daughter went to use our gift cards! There was a dad and his 5 year old boy standing next to a man and woman in paramedic uniforms. The lady started chatting with the little boy which clearly made his day, and as the paramedics left in the ambulance they could see the little boy watching them through the window with his stuffy toy and they flashed the lights on the ambulance. I watched that little boys face light up brighter than a Christmas tree! I just wanted to shout out those paramedics for clearly making that boys day! He loved seeing the cool lights!!!
I was shopping at the Dollarama next to Movati yesterday when I received devastating news about my cousin that just passed away from a horrible car accident. I broke down in Dollarama and once I gathered myself, I had to check out because I knew I wouldn't be able to come back before Christmas after receiving such heartbreaking news. The cashier saw I was distraught and asked me if I was okay and if everything was OK and what she could do to help me. I broke down and told her what I had just found out, and she asked if she could hug me. She gave me the tightest hug and let me cry on her shoulder. Then a customer walked up to me and told me she had seen me crying and asked if she could give me a hug. She said, I'm not sure what happened, but just know you are loved. I broke down in this strangers arms who squeezed me and hugged me and gave me a kiss. I thanked them both and walked out. The customer saw me in my car - I had left my door open because I was hyperventilating, and she came to check on me. She offered to take me somewhere or drive me home. She didn't want to leave me in my state. Once I assured her I would be ok, I shared with her about my cousins tragic and sudden passing. She asked for his name and asked if she could pray for him. I told her I would appreciate it. And I thanked her again.
Honestly, my interaction with both the cashier and customer gave me such comfort in such a tragic and devastating moment. I didn't catch either of their names, but if you read this, you will know who you are and know that your act of kindness comforted me more than you can imagine. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart.
Last night I went to Walmart on Dougall on my break and I left my purse in the cart outside, with nearly $400 cash in it.
I would like to sincerely thank the person who returned it, with all the cash STILL in my purse. You are a gem, and I pray that the universe, rewards you with blessings of your own, but know that today you are my blessing. Thank you thank you thank you!
The city's transit system only seems to be getting worse as the months pass. For as far back as I can remember catching a bus at a certain time of day is impossible. They're overcrowded and they will fly right past you. Making you miss your next connecting bus.
Even if we leave a bit earlier in hopes to not have this problem. Ya, that's a joke.
It doesn't help that people keep voting the useless mayor back into office. He is a bigger joke making Transit Windsor looking absolutely ridiculous.
We need a better schedule for them too. I miss having a job out in Old Castle never mind out on South Walker Rd. Those busses out on that route are fewer than throughout the rest of the city. Making it also hard to maintain good timing to and from work. Don't even get me started on trying to catch the last bus out that way for those on the afternoon shift for the factories have about 15-20 minutes to make it out the door and to the bus stop without missing the last bus on that route foe the evening. Se have to wait 45 minutes bc the last bus is well well wrap around. Which pretty much makes it absolutely impossible for them to even do a bit of overtime unless they're able to find a ride home by a co-worker.
Then there is the weekends with that same route! The Walkerville 8 is horrible.
I'd love to know if the busses even get cleaned at all on the inside. The disgusting looking stains on the seats. Yuck!
Not everyone is medically able to drive and don't have a choice but to take the city busses!
I was at the food basics across from Techumseh Mall today (11/ 02/ 2023) at around 6pm give or take, I was with my kids & in a rush trying to do our grocery shop and get back home. Of course, my card wasn't working with tap and it asked for the passcode that I just couldn't remember, I started frantically searching for it in my phone and while doing so the sweetest woman paid for my groceries! I wish I had gotten your name but I didn't think of that until after.
I just wanted to give you a special shout-out and say THANK YOU again, that was the kindest most thoughtful thing, and I hope that the kindness you showed me finds it's way back to you 💕
Thank you thank you thank you!
