Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
To the man who was dropping off his prescriptions at Shoppers in the mall around 5PM today thank you. I had to come into the pharmacy to talk to them about changing the delivery driver for my medications because he kept giving me compliments for months and it started to feel like harassment. I'm a young woman and the driver is an old man. The man dropping off his prescriptions sympathized with me and said that I shouldn't have to pick up my meds because Shoppers drivers behave badly. I really felt seen especially since a man told me this because even my own mother and my best friend who are women could not empathize with me and prioritized the perspective of the delivery driver. It helped me feel safe and secure that there are people who know what harassment can look like and I felt really validated. I was able to get a different delivery driver so everything worked out in the end. Thank you so much to this kind gentleman, you have been spotted.
On Monday, April 3, 2023 I had an emergency appendectomy at about 9pm in the evening with Dr. Kristen Gyetvai's OR team.
This was unexpected and was my first surgery. I was so scared that I was in tears when I got to the OR, but all the nurses were so kind and friendly and helped me to feel safe.
A special thank you to the nurses in Emerg who took care of me before my diagnosis and reassured me prior to surgery, the nurse with the dark hair and pink scrubs that wheeled me to and from the OR and reassured me that I was just taking a big nap and I would get a popsicle after like a little kid, to the nurse that told me we share a birthday (of the same year even!) and distracted me by talking about Tom Hanks movies and the Elvis movie right before I fell asleep, and to the spunky nurse that did my intake (I think her name was Jenny?) that kept me positive, and to my surgeon Dr. Gyetvai who answered all my questions prior to surgery. Also the nurses in the Recovery Room who took care of me and reassured me when I woke up.
Unfortunately I was too distraught and medicated to remember the names of all the nurses who helped with my surgery, but I would love to be able to find out who they all are and one day be able to thank them in person. So if any of you ever read this, please reach out. I so appreciate you all!
I had such an amazing experience with the OR Day Surgery Team at Windsor Regional -MET Campus. Thank you so much for taking care of me and easing my fears. Thank you for all the work you do!
My car was parked at a business on Provincial Rd and left overnight last Thursday (March 30th).
I got to my car at 5:18am on Friday, March 31st. The back window had been smashed in and a lot of my belongings were stolen. Among the items stolen were sunglasses, tennis rackets, old photos, cards from a deceased family members, car insurance and ownership papers, and other important documents belonging to my deceased relative.
The perpetrator fled the scene at 5:15am on foot (3 minutes before I arrived). They left the weapon behind. I hope we can find this guy. If anyone has any advice on who to contact with regard to the paperwork (new ownership obtained, private credit score please share below.
He was wearing a white hoodie and a baseball cap.
Thank you to the lovely human that gave Tim Hortons $100 this morning to pay for strangers orders. Thank you for making my day brighter. My teenager was also in the truck, what a beautiful experience for her to see.
I am going to go a bit on a rant here, bc I am boiled!! The past few mornings, showing up to drop MY KIDS off to school, this car has been parked here. Ok cool, I thought yesterday maybe he was just sleeping... it happens right people sleep in there cars. Well long and behold another head pops up. Hmm ok . So because my vehicle is higher up I can see directly into there car. Now I'm not gunna go into detail, I can see clearly what's going on. Whatever I blow it off yesterday. Pull up today to the SAME thing. Now I have my kids in my car asking all sorts of questions. I honked my horn to let them know a library parking lot BESIDE THE SCHOOL is NOT an appropriate place to be doing that kinda thing. Especially with kids coming. So they continued I then get our of my car bc at this point I'm livid. Go do that shit somewhere else!!! They then leave. Long story short, if you want to do that do it somewhere else. No infront of a library, beside a school and with kids around. Because now I have 2 kids asking questions that at there age they shouldn't need to know about!!
A super pissed off mother!!!
I knew from the start of the day that I was going to get stuck somehow and I guess should have prepared more. I almost made it all the way through the day and was on my way home when it happened. I took a turn way too slow to avoid sliding into a car and hit some snow. I was alone with a dead phone, no boots or gloves and a car stuck on the corner of Riverside and Drouillard. A good amount of people drove by me but a lady and three (I think?) men stopped to help. I yelled thank you out of my window while I was driving away and I hope you heard me. I really appreciated the help and so do my toes. 💕
I was driving home from work and just before the banwell/ ec row intersection (eastbound), I was hit by another vehicle (black SUV). They kept swerving side to side up banwell, managed to straighten out and then took off. This happened around 3pm. Just hoping that someone saw and was able to get the license plate.
