Bad dog bag man

To the dog walker along Almon Street who carries yellow or green plastic doggy bags for the poop pick-up: yes, you're doing the earth-friendly thing by bending over to bag your dog’s poop, but only to deposit the bag on the sidewalk by the telephone pole near the Rona on Almon. Please do mother earth a favour and take your poop home with you for proper disposal. Mother earth will love you, as will all of us who walk on Almon and have to observe your poop bags piling up. — Pooped-Out Doggy-Bag Observer

Get your own space!

To the gaggle of entitled middle-aged women who took over my table at Humani-T Cafe while I was trying to read my Toni Morrison novel: At first it was just one of you who asked if she could sit at my table, since the cafe was busy. You hovered over me, and I felt too intimidated to say no. Then you brought your whole cohort and y'all sat so close to me that I felt literally pushed out. It's been a tough week and I just wanted a little joy with my book. Screw you. — Angry Reader

Responsible dog ownership

Posted By on Fri, Jan 17, 2020 at 9:52 AM

Dear neighbour on Fuller Terrace: It's snowing and your dog would like to come in. He has been out there barking for over 30 minutes. I am a block away and I hear him begging to come in out of the cold and wet. You do this every day. Every day you ignore your poor dog. I have had enough. Be responsible or I will call the SPCA.

Paid criminals

Posted By on Sat, Nov 9, 2019 at 3:41 PM

bitch-people-with-megaphones.jpg
Why are all these dirty cops in the news lately getting suspended with pay?  You got one out there raping women, and another out there committing armed robbery, but they still get to keep their paychequ that comes out of the pockets of taxpayers! The typical police salary in Nova Scotia is 12 percent above the national average—they earn almost $70,000 a year! And they're out there raping and robbing and getting paid suspensions when they get caught. Unbelievable. Meanwhile, the rest of us honest chumps have to live off a measly 30 grand. Maybe I should try a life of crime.

Check yourself

To the mom with the fedora at the sports store: We asked you to take your conversation with your teenager elsewhere and your reply was, "Obviously you don't have kids." Guess what? I don't need to have kids to see that you're a spoiled brat. The store was almost empty, you could have sat anywhere to whine and complain about your stupid first-world problems. We were asking you to be a decent human being. Fuck. I wish people like you didn't have kids. And for all the moms out there, that's not an appropriate thing to say to any woman, ever.

Did we really assign a man to interview one of the most important feminist writers of our time? We're better than that, Halifax. What could have been an enlightening, relevant interview was totally cringe-worthy and embarrassing.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Posted By on Thu, Oct 3, 2019 at 10:33 AM

Attention voters: Ask yourselves this, as you try to figure out which political party deserves your support on October 21: Will your party really, truly attempt to address child poverty in this country? Health care? Climate change? Public safety? Veterans’ mental health? Electoral reform?

Will it matter if the Conservatives form the next government, or the Liberals or the NDP? The probable answer to all these questions: Fuck no.

Anarchy isn’t the answer, of course, but electors are fooling themselves if they think the next gang to hunker down in Ottawa will manage national issues any differently than previous members of parliament. I have been voting since the 1970s. REAL change hasn’t happened in Canada yet.

Perhaps my grandchildren, when they’re old enough to vote in 16 years, will have more positive results to report.

Phone zombies, no bag limit

Posted By on Thu, Sep 19, 2019 at 10:55 AM

Phone zombie! Why do you walk around crowded busy streets staring at your phone? Phone Zombie! You are a hazard to yourself and the general public at large. And you not only look like an insecure fool, you are an embarrassment to the human race at large. Perhaps stopping and moving out of the way of others would be a better approach to communications? It's illegal to drive and operate your phone. Why not elsewhere too? Phone zombie! You got to go!

"Have a nice day" rings hollow

Posted By on Wed, Aug 21, 2019 at 3:06 PM

megaphone.jpg
Nice sunny day, sitting outside a cafe on Spring Garden, was relaxing until a panhandler decided to stand in front of me and tell everyone to "have a nice day." It's like listening to a parrot. He couldn't care less if you have a nice day, he just wants your change. If people would just ignore panhandlers, there would be far fewer of them. I'm sure the tourists think the whole works of us are losers.

Who needs porn when there's the local library?

I love my community library, but the school kids are using it to make out in during the school days. Staff turn their backs—thanks! Now I genuinely hate going to the library because it's like milď soft porn with teens. Yuuuuck.

Pride Parade bitch

Posted By on Fri, Aug 2, 2019 at 9:29 AM

I want to thank the bitch in the pink t-shirt that ruined my Pride Parade.
I am a 66-year-old gay man and I have attended the every Pride Parade in Halifax from day one. I choose my spot in the shade and set up my chair two hours before the parade on Spring Garden Road across from the old library. You showed up just as the parade was coming and started taking pictures, blocking my view. I asked you to move, telling you I had been there for two hours before the parade started so I COULD SEE. You were very rude and didn't. Show some respect—THINK about others! Next year I hope you use your head and show respect, because I might not be around to ask you to move.

Posters down

Posted By on Sat, Jul 27, 2019 at 9:25 AM

world-in-trash.jpg
Back at the beginning of June, a local community group had a big yard sale. Many posters were stapled to many hydro poles across the north end. Today plenty of those posters remain, with a number ripped off and thrown to the sidewalk and streets. It would be nice if the sale organizers could organize a take down poster event…as should other people who plaster poles with their yard sale posters, etc.

Pissed off at "slow" traffic?

Posted By on Thu, Jul 25, 2019 at 11:12 AM

illustration-_converted_rev.jpg
Last time I checked, we don't have any autobahn roads in NS with no speed limit. If you think driving 160 is OK on public highway, you are being an ASS. Yes, the "slowpoke" doing 120 in the left lane was slowing you down, that is because he was only somewhat above the speed limit while passing people, instead of driving like an utter ass. Where the hell are you going that it is so urgent? Get a grip, or get a membership on a private circuit track and drive 200+ if you are serious about driving stupid fast. Don't put other people at risk with your entitled attitudes and dangerous driving habits.

Go back west and don't come back

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2018 at 2:53 PM

To the crybaby and his entourage out dining downtown during the recent convention: The server advised you twice about liquor laws that restrict your underage companion from being in the bar section after 9pm. They even suggested sitting in the main restaurant to you instead. So you had a hissy fit when 9pm rolled around and he had to leave. You even stiffed the server on a bill over $800. You know the kid has to tip out, right? He lost money serving your sorry ass. What an asshole you are.

Behaviour that gives cyclists a bad name

Posted By on Mon, Aug 27, 2018 at 10:38 AM

I'm an avid commuter and recreational cyclist, and my bitch is about a cyclist. I'm in my car, going north on Windsor Street, at around 3:50pm. As most of you know, Windsor Street has a cycling lane. All of a sudden, a cyclist comes careening down the centre of the road, going south, and takes off the passenger side outside read view mirror of a white SUV as he zooms by. I couldn't believe it. No wonder drivers get irate! Not to mention the cyclist could easily have lost control, flipped and landed straight into my windshield and fallen in front of me as I ran into him, as I was just feet back when it happened. These dare devil incidents where lives are endangered should be prosecuted. I hope the SUV driver reports it. Granted, cyclists often do things like riding on the sidewalk but if they dismount in the presence of a pedestrian, (considering there isn't adequate cycling infrastructure) that shouldn't be ticketed. But it's always a few that give the activity a bad name—and this guy today did a lot of damage in that respect.
