To the religious lady from the Baptist church who felt the need to degrade me and call me names and abuse me for being LGBT, when all I wanted to do was finish my shift as a barista: I wish I knew what to do to stand up to you. You looked at me with so much hatred in your eyes while talking about God’s love. I actually pity you and the evil person you are. — Battered Barista

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

Apartment hunting in this city is a mess! Reading ads on Kijiji, you can't even rent a room in this city for under 600 bucks. Now these landlords are getting real choosy. Ads say, "students only," "girls only," etc.  Sounds like a bunch of perverts. Why does it have to be a student? Students can't even afford the rent. How about renting to the first paying customer? Why does it have to be a girl? One ad said "No overnight guests allowed." Who the fuck do these landlords think they are?  If someone hands you over the better part of a thousand dollars every month for rent, what makes you think you can tell them what to do in the home they pay to rent?  No overnight guests? So the female, student tenant must also be single and available for you too, eh? — Reading Between The Lines

Just a general bitch about the "friends" that one seems to lose when they quit drinking. I decided to quit this past year because I felt it was really killing my health, my bank account and my emotional well being. I was able to do it, completely cold turkey after 15 years of hard drinking, and was pretty proud of myself for that.

Whenever I told people that I had quit drinking, it felt as if they had written me off entirely. I didn't hear from them again. Furthermore, if I did ever meet up with them it would be “Oh come on let’s just go out for one drink, it won’t kill you" or “Would you be comfortable in a bar?” Like, there's more to life than obliterating yourself with alcohol, despite what alcohol companies wants you to think. Since excising these people from my life, I've been living a lonely, albeit somewhat happier life. Still happy for my decision. — Cheers Without Beers

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

To the guy at '90s Night NYE who took my favourite Weathermate brand vintage grey wool coat instead of your own from coat check that night: please please please return it the coat check there, they have my info. You found my eyedrops in one of the pockets, and I know your coat is still sitting in the downstairs coat check. You know who you are. Don't leave it sitting in your closet as some NYE souvenir while I'm left out in the cold without a winter coat. —Coatless For The New Year

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.

Hey, neighbour (or visitor): The loud and annoying alarm on your precious vehicle, parked in downtown Dartmouth somewhere near the King’s Wharf area, started blasting at various intervals shortly after 6pm on Sunday and continued at least through 6am Monday. This is a district in which shift workers, health-care staffers, students, the elderly and people managing illnesses live. They could use a good night’s sleep. Disarm your alarm, you clueless or inconsiderate twit.

Thursday nights at our favorite dive bar was a fun tradition for our little group. But that's been shattered by a "karaoke killer." No, she's not crushing her "performances" but merely murdering our good time with her multiple visits to the stage and warbling in an irritating monotone. There should be some kind of "one-song only" rule to prevent such annoyances, since it appears her friends and the establishment are enabling her behaviour. We've identified a solution, though: Now we meet at a different bar!

As I stroll through our Dorian-defiled city, streets and parks chock-full of emergency workers, city employees, volunteers and scattered debris, amongst all of the people doing anything they can to help and others trying to salvage and repair what they can from the mess that's been made, there is you, having friends take your photo while you pose in front of fallen trees in our parks, or having your children stand as close as they can to the caution tape while you try to capture the perfect Insta-pic of them with the fallen crane in the background, or the guys that had their "bro" take that "sweet pic" of them while they stood in front of the vehicles that were crushed by they roof that flew off of the nearby building! None of these things are fun or cool, these are things that have caused people trouble that they now have to take care of. It's a blessing no one was seriously injured! Maybe put your camera away and see if there's anything you can do to help, rather than using this mess for photo content!
