"Public" Gardens

Posted By on Thu, Oct 10, 2019 at 2:15 PM

megaphone.jpg
This public space is beautiful and useless. There are so many rules (and employees reminding you of them) that it is impossible to enjoy being there. The buses of tourists and the odd local might find it lovely to stroll the pathways for five minutes, but not me. While watching my child experience pure joy in observing a duck and walking on a small patch of grass (yup, just some GRASS), I was told that this was not an area for play and that the family lawn was on the other side of the park (where there are no ducks and only an unshaded small field). I was also told during another visit that you're not allowed to WALK your bike through the park (just in case the busloads of tourists don't have enough path space and may have to step on a few blades of grass).

Just imagine a park in the middle of the city where you can sit on the ground and picnic, play with your family, be encouraged to use alternative transportation (bikes), experience beautiful gardens, and spend some time breathing in the fresh air and feeling better about your day, without the worry of breaking the rules by being comfortable. I bet the benefits would far outweigh any damage to pristine mow jobs. Wouldn't you use that space more?

Line cutter at Vegfest

Posted By on Fri, Oct 4, 2019 at 9:13 AM

To the young man at Vegfest with the half manbun: You thought you were the first in line to get the coffee from Just Us!—but you weren't. You actually cut right in front of me. I was in the line much longer than you. When the barista asked who was next, I went ahead and got my coffee. I heard you say "OK" annoyingly as if I had jumped the line. Nope, t'was you all along! Pay attention!

The shitty lover!

Posted By on Fri, Sep 20, 2019 at 9:09 AM

Responsible polyamory is NOT: Agreeing to be "open" and then not seeing or speaking to your partner for weeks, only to show up at her birthday party while she's trying to run things and casually mention, "hey love you lots I'm feeling frisky again I'm available for that now" and in the same breath, "oh by the way I've been seeing some other people"—WITH DETAILS about the people?? Like, she doesn't wanna find that out in that moment. That's a sit-down conversation. Or maybe you've already agreed to be poly and not share when you're seeing other people.

But YOU show up, you're already drunk and high and she's stressed out trying to host a party. She hasn't heard from you in ages and you just drop in and catch her the one moment she's alone and she feels cornered and—UGH makes me so mad that hot guys get away with that shit. She didn't deserve that. You don't even know how much you hurt her. She should have dumped your ass ages ago. She can do SO much better.

I hope the other people you're "casually" seeing can see that how you behave is NOT OK, and they don't make excuses for you. I hope you can get your shit together and stop using alcohol and weed to avoid your problems! There are a lot of people who care about you in this city! But the more you act like that, the fewer they will be.

Share the sidewalk!

Here in Nova Scotia our populace is still small enough that we extend courtesy to those around us, especially on the sidewalks. I understand if you come from a place where this is not the case, but if you are a guest here, please leave your disregard for others at the door.

Shitty owners

Posted By on Wed, Sep 4, 2019 at 9:25 AM

I would like to dedicate this bitch to arrogant, entitled, think-your-shit-don’t-stink hospitality owners. Owning a restaurant doesn’t make you special or above the rest of us humans, so fuck you. Owning a restaurant doesn’t give you the right to yell at staff, so fuck you. Owning a restaurant doesn’t give you the right to force your staff to participate in penny-pinching schemes. Shame on you for not supporting staff members when they come to you regarding sexual assault matters within the workplace. And lastly, fuck you for creating a workplace environment that makes me physically sick.

To the person who called me a "fucking piece of shit" on Vernon Street this morning

Posted By on Thu, Aug 29, 2019 at 9:53 AM

storm-cloud-over-head.jpg
I realize that I had parked in a no-parking zone. I drove around three times to try to find a legit parking space, but was running out of time. You see, two days ago I miscarried. As I was driving down Vernon to get to work, I finally got a call that my emergency ultrasound was scheduled (which I had been waiting for for days), but I had to get to the hospital in 30 minutes and drink two-to-three litres of water beforehand. I finally decided to park in a no-parking, put my four-ways on and run into the store to get water. I saw you, was nowhere near you when I opened my door, yet you still yelled at me with all the hate and anger you could muster. It left me shook.

Maybe I am a “FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.” But I don’t think I’ve ever met one person who has followed the rules of the road 100 percent all of the time, including you I’m sure. A little compassion goes a long way—and you made an already stressful situation almost unbearable. And I want you to know that.

To the person who wrote “You are awesome!” and “Have a wonderful day!” in chalk on University Avenue: Thank you. I truly needed to read that today!

Shut the fuck up already

Posted By on Mon, Jul 15, 2019 at 8:35 PM

Why, oh why, does anyone in their right mind spend good money on a concert ticket only to go and talk (yell) to their dumb, Instagram-scrolling friends? You, yes you, are ruining it for everyone else who has to stand within earshot of your inconsiderate ass. Do yourself a favour and don't waste your money — and please, do everyone else a favour and go do something else. Turn up your basic bitch Spotify algo and talk over Shawn Mendes with your halfwit squad in the comfort of your own fucking home, dumbass.—Fed up with festival talkers

Pick at home and cover your mouth

Posted By on Tue, Jul 9, 2019 at 8:17 AM

Seriously? You believe the best place to pick at your fly bites and scabs is at the bus stop and on the bus? Not only were you picking—not scratching, but full on picking—your fly bites and scabs, but then you were wiping the blood onto your legs, arms and the bus seat. Come the hell on! How were you raised? No one wants to see that shit. It's disgusting. Then to top it all off you start sneezing with your yap wide open spreading your snot and spit all over the place for all to enjoy. Thanks so much for that. The topper to all of this was the huge wad of spit you graciously left on the side of the street before getting on the bus. Grow up and get some manners. I feel bad for whomever had to sit next to you on the bus.

Bad cat owners

Posted By on Thu, Jul 4, 2019 at 3:59 PM

This is the second time I saw your cat left outside, sitting on your doorstep in the pouring rain waiting to get inside your house.
So, I decide to go across the street and ring your doorbell to tell you your cat wants to come inside. Then you tell me that it is ok that your cat stays out in the rain. Really? Maybe you should stay out in the rain, idiot, and see if you like it and let your cat come inside your house. You do not deserve to have a cat or any pet.
If you didn't want a cat then you shouldn't have adopt it!—A happy cat owner

ATTN: Door-to-door salespeople

When someone is pointedly ignoring you while slouching home at the end of a hot day, take the hint and move on to the next rube. Whistling at me and shouting "Hey!" like I'm a fucking stray dog isn't going to convince me to buy your bullshit in the best of moods.

ME! ME! ME!

Posted By on Mon, Jun 3, 2019 at 1:21 PM

Dear woman waiting for the number 3 bus at the Dartmouth Terminal:
What sort of rotting soul do you have to have to cut to the front of the line, blocking a visually impaired woman from entering the bus?
Only the person grabbing her arm prevented that woman from stepping off the curb in front of the bus.
Your face was smiling as you slid into your hard-won seat, your tatted hand holding your protein shake bottle.
You are either oblivious or a shameless narcissist.
I vote for number two.

Yo, balloon boy

Posted By on Tue, May 21, 2019 at 3:42 PM

I saw you steal the balloon off that old lady's front porch. Your buddy kept yelling "Wrong house! Wrong house!" but was perfectly fine after you snagged that precious, partially deflated pink prize. At least the third member of your drunk little gang had the decency to look ashamed when I met his eyes. You and the other shitbag, though, have a special spot in hell waiting. I don't care how drunk you were, you and your buddy are pieces of shit.
Oh, and if that banging I heard as I walked away turns out to have been you, and I see any damage done to the park or bus stop on my walk to work, guess what? I recognized you, and I hope seeing the cops coming to take you in for vandalism scares that shittiness out of you.

Respect accessibility

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2019 at 12:49 PM

To the couple blocking the accessible parking spots outside a local community fitness centre, who, after I honked at you to move, yelled to me that ”patience is a virtue”: The rest of our confrontation is a bit of a blur, but let me tell you, I am the example of patience. I needed the spot to pick up my daughters, one of whom is in a wheelchair. At seven year sales old, my beautiful little girl cannot walk unassisted, is non verbal, is profoundly intellectually delayed and has severe epilepsy. I work daily with my daughter in hopes she will one day walk, communicate using signs or pictures, feed herself and use the toilet independently. I hope she will outgrow her daily seizures.

I am patient because it may take years for any one of those things to happen, or perhaps they'll never happen at all.

I have been dealing with people parking in front of those accessible spots for years. I have complained in person and over the phone to management and offered solutions and although I was promised a solution was coming, I am still waiting.
So yes, I honked at you and your wife because I am tired of people being lazy and blocking parking meant for persons with disabilities and not for people who are too lazy to park in the regular spots and walk a few steps ( because they should appreciate the fact that they can).

Useless bystander

Posted By on Tue, Jan 8, 2019 at 12:13 PM

I fell on a patch of ice this morning. You stopped to light your cigarette, looked at me on the ground and then quietly kept walking. You, sir, are a piece of shit. Like, would it KILL you to ask if another citizen is alright? What is wrong with people in this town?
