OK: the traffic-funnelling system used on the Dartmouth side of the Macdonald Bridge resembles a demolition derby. And selfish, risk-taking drivers who race from the left side to the one green-lighted lane on the right just make a shitty situation worse. You inconsiderate assholes jumping the queue may end up two or three or four vehicles ahead of what should have been your spot in the lineup approaching the bridge deck. So, you’ll be reaching the Halifax side of the harbour a few seconds ahead of the time you otherwise would have. And once you’re on the Halifax side, you could well be stopped and waiting in another line of cars. Think about this, you motoring morons. — Dartmouth Driver

Yeah, the pond that forms on the Dartmouth side of the bridge every time it rains, really needs to be filled in. The pound can get about 10 feet wide and at least four inches deep because  the water seems to need to travel uphill to reach the drain. Anyone trying to use the crosswalk in this area needs to walk into traffic to avoid the current. Then risks getting splashed by one of the cars that sadly had to wait for us to get around this pond. — Pissed-off Soaked Pedestrian

To all the idiots who need lessons on how to to park: they are very inconsiderate, they are non-humans who insist that they are more important than others. I can't even count as high as the amount of c#@$$ that do it to me, and I can't be the only one. I have one question directed at these mouth breathers using up good air: do you think that this is okay? IT'S NOT! GROW UP AND START TO THINK ABOUT OTHERS INSTEAD OF JUST YOURSELF!!!!!!!!! — Sam

I saw your look of confusion as I passed by, blaring my horn at you. Look: the carshare parking spots are for carshare cars. Not for German-made luxury vehicles idling life away. So  had to park farther away and walk through even more treacherous shitice because of you. Thanks. If I seem overly enraged, it’s because this is hardly the first time I’ve had this happen.

My every day seems filled with assholes for whom rules and regulations apply to everyone, everywhere. Unless and until they apply to them because they have more urgent business. Carshare parking only? Not if I need to just pull in for a bit. No smoking? Yeah, but I really need a dart right now. Quiet study area? Yeah, but I gotta take this call. Fire lane? I’ll only be in the liquor store for a minute (I’m looking at you, everyone on Baker Street). And what are the odds of a fire, anyway?

Fuck you people and your fucking exceptionalism. If you want to live in a place where the rules only apply to other people, I suggest heading south. The Tweeter-in-Chief is all about that. “They” say the road to hell is paved in good intentions. That aphorism was invented by exceptionalists like you, who want to excuse constantly acting in bad faith. Guess what? You’re not that special. Follow the fucking rules. Improve your intentions. Please. — Slip ’N’ Slide

Dear Bus Buddies: you know who you are. You stand up front near the driver ("your buddy") chewing the fat and blocking the entrance to passengers. Sure, there may be plenty of seats available to choose from, and gasp, sit in, but you prefer to stand and gab, gab and stand, narrowing the aisle, creating bottlenecks with total disregard for others. Could you be distracting the driver? Heck no! They blew past that frigid soul at the last stop because your stories are just sooo interesting. Please Bus Buddy, sit down. Get the fuck out of the way. Leave the drivers alone. Stop for the love of all that is safe and sound. I doubt the drivers will miss you. — Busing Bitcher

Once again, walking to work I was cut off in an intersection by someone speeding through in front of me. Had I not stopped walking through they would have hit me. I looked at their faces to see if they might have just missed my presence there, but there were staring right at me, laughing and giving me the finger. I guess people think it's a joke to put people's life at risk with reckless and dangerous driving. No wonder we have so many fatal pedestrian collisions. — Dead By Drive-By

To the idiot in a grey Nissan Versa who crossed the North and Robie intersection as an ambulance was trying make its way to the hospital, in snow, during rush hour, yesterday afternoon. STOP and WAIT. And why TF are you wearing noise-cancelling headphones while driving!?!?!?! Are you literally trying to kill people?!?! Ugh. —Pedestrian Bitcher

Why in the fuck are all the liquor stores closed just because there are a few inches of snow down!? We live in Nova Scotia. Why are you so surprised that it snows here? All the buses are running and most of the other stores in the city are open. WTF is your problem, NSLC? There's no reason your employees can't take a bus to work if they don't want to drive on the roads. I walked all the way to the liquor store to find a dark store and locked door. Some other customers who were waiting said they heard the store was opening at 11 instead, so I waited an hour, but the store was still locked up tighter than a fart. So I walk all the way home. Their twitter account said their HRM stores would open by 2 pm. I wait until then, now their fucking twitter says 3 pm. Make up your damn minds! Are you open or closed? Pick a time and commit, you poison peddlers. I've fucking had enough! I'm calling it a day and going to bed.  This day is trashed. I think this is the year I'm going to quit drinking from your devil's cup.

Dear men,
Women on the bus don't want to talk to you. Or more accurately, they don't want you to talk at them. Does she have headphones on? Is she reading? Or is she employing these strategies just to signal to you (because yes, this is about you) that she doesn't want you to talk to her? Keep your anecdotes to yourself.

To the asshole who jaywalked into the intersection on Dresden, so that I had to brake sharply to avoid them, and then SMACKED MY CAR as I drove through: a) the concrete barrier on the east side doesn't allow me to see the full intersection until I'm close to it, b) learn how to safely walk around in a city (including using crosswalks and looking before you just blindly walk into the road) before you get hit by a car or bus, c) yelling profanities and spitting in the face of someone is really, really juvenile (especially since that person stopped their car and didn't hit you) and d) grow some balls and take some responsibility for your own stupidity, rather than blame it on someone else.
