When a job promotion opened up at my workplace and I filled in as acting-whatever for that same position—for the same pay with more work—and my boss took their sweet time with the hiring process, the job was given to a replica of its previous incompetent occupant. The irony is I'll end up training this person with my same benefits-less hourly wage, while they stumble through the learning process with their cozy salary in tow. Happy new year to me. — Filled In For What?

I'm tired of hearing your cat calls. Staring at my breasts while I'm talking = not cool. Whistle at me again and I'm going to turn violent. And if I had a dollar for every random guy who told me out of the blue that I'm his soulmate, I would be one wealthy woman. Why any of you think it's OK to send suggestive messages while drunk is beyond me, especially when you’re married. Men, let's get this straight: if a woman is nice, it doesn't mean she's hitting on you.

Hiring managers of the HRM, please run your job titles and descriptions through a spellchecker before publishing positions to job boards. It isn't clear if the title "Escavator Operator" involves construction or maintaining automatic stairs. Your "Costumer Service" role involves no dressing up, and I am concerned if your restaurant needs a "Shit Manager" (I only saw this last one once, years ago, but the memory remains).

The attention to detail you put into your opportunity to make a first impression reflects the level of respect you have for employees, and this problem isn't limited to entry level positions. The government is hiring an advisor right now to run both "econonic" and also "ecomonic" analysis, a dark sign in itself for our econony.

Hey The Coast. Good job having two articles talking about addiction followed immediately by an article about a new drinking hole. Do you realize that alcohol is the biggest addiction issue in Nova Scotia?

We've invested millions to upgrade the transit buses with modern tech. Each bus has a digital display that shows the next stop, and "stop requested" when required. I've been on at least six buses this year, that the stop request isn't displayed. I had my headphones on and didn't hear the bell. So as far as I knew, the driver wasn't going to stop for me. On a crowded bus, it's difficult to get to the driver to ask.

When I've told drivers that the stop request wasn't working, they would laugh at me and tell me their display let them know to stop, so basically fuck off. Like they don't care about customer satisfaction. Since it's happened repeatedly, the drivers haven't reported a problem with the bus, so the drivers must have shut off the display.

I don't think that it's a matter of driver's IQ. Except that these displays were installed for the hearing impaired. If someone is deaf, they won't hear the bell and have no way of knowing if the driver was going to stop for them. That is clearly a human rights violation, as Halifax Transit boasted that all buses are now accessible. It appears that Halifax Transit and the drivers are lying to us.

Halifax don't have the money to build football stadium, but I know a shipyard in the city that might have a few bucks to build it and name it after them! Any guess who it is?

I'm pissed at a certain auto body place. They damaged a head liner during a recent repair at their shop and refused to fix it. The owner is a very unethical business owner, and I wouldn't recommend taking your wheelbarrow there to be fixed. The owner doesn't have any backbone to face the customer, but runs and hides so he doesn't have to deal with the issue. Little man syndrome.

Just because you are doing 120 and the right hand lane is doing 105 does not entitle you to stay in the left lane.
I flew up to your bumper at 160! You need to get the hell over. I am faster so therefore you are slower. —Pissed off and late

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

If you don't value your employees' mental health over the work, maybe rethink if you should be in charge. If your employee is anxious or depressed at work, maybe take a second to think: "Am I causing this? Can I help them?" Maybe, just a thought, try giving a shit about the people who are working their ass off for you and crying at their desk and not being paid what they're worth. —Exhausted by the bad bosses of Halifax
