New dude on the scene got you interested? Seems to always be flirting with you without really saying anything? Got a sob story about why he's here that seems too good to be true? Yeah, it is. Get the back story. His gender politics are shit, he's really hurt a lot of people and just moves on. (PS - He doesn't even wanna fuck you. He just wants to make sure his garden gets watered.) — The Last Fly

Where’s the support?

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

Why do you even have a schedule? It would be more accurate to just tell your customers, “Show up at the bus stop two hours before you need to be somewhere and we guarantee a 50 percent chance you'll be on time. May the bus gods smile upon you.” — Cold

Racial profiling

acist and dirty cops, power-hungry cops who use excessive force and arrest people for no reason, need to be stopped. I can't believe that poor woman was punched in the face in front of her children! I was pushed face-first toward the concrete by a cop before with extreme force, I almost had my teeth knocked out, and if I hadn't put my hands there to catch my fall… I too did nothing illegal. HRM needs to screen their officers better and start sensitivity training. Stop hiring these racists, criminals and hot heads to protect us. Go arrest some actual criminals and stop this excessive force toward women who have done nothing wrong! You should be ashamed of yourself. —I’ll Be At The Protest

Ambulance hinderer

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

LIbrary's noisy living room

Posted By on Mon, Jan 20, 2020 at 1:22 PM

megaphone.jpg
 was always under the impression the "living room" on the fifth floor of the central library was meant to be reasonably quiet, yet every time I've been there it's been just as noisy as the rest of the incredibly noisy library. People speaking loudly on their phone, constant camera shutters from teams of unoriginal wannabe instagram influencers, people having conversations everyone can hear, etc. Is there seriously nowhere in the library with comfortable seating that you can expect a reasonable noise level? Just seems more than a bit ironic that a library is so inhospitable to people who are actually trying to read. — Detective Bookman

Big scary flurries

Posted By on Sat, Jan 18, 2020 at 9:11 AM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg

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.

Responsible dog ownership

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.

Students on transit

Posted By on Thu, Jan 16, 2020 at 10:37 AM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg

Dear Students: When you are on a crowded bus, look up from your phones, and when you see an older commuter on the bus standing, get up and offer them the seat! It is called being polite. It won't hurt you, and it might also make you feel good as the older person sits and you, with better balance, ride the next few stops. Also, a bit about bus-stop etiquette: the person who is at the stop first gets on first. If you get there after six people have already been standing around waiting for the bus, you are the seventh to get on, not the first because you moved the fastest or barged ahead. Again, it is called being polite! Try it, you might like it.  —Talkin' Transit

Coat-check catastrophe

Posted By on Wed, Jan 15, 2020 at 9:20 AM

megaphone.jpg
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

Vegan Apartments for Rent?! What next!?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2020 at 1:45 PM

storm-cloud-over-head.jpg
I just saw an apartment listing for a vegan apartment for rent. I thought it was bad telling people to smoke and not have pets, now these landlords are trying to control what you eat! Crazy shit going on in the HRM. No wonder nobody can find a place to live with lunacy like this going on. We need to enforce laws preventing landlords from acting like tyrants. This is beyond ridiculous! —Meat Eater Apartment Seeker

Let’s all learn how to do our garbage in 2020

Posted By on Sat, Jan 11, 2020 at 9:50 AM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg
Dear south end students: You’ve been living in what were formerly single-family homes for what, four months now? It doesn’t matter where you came from, in Halifax, there’s a law: we compost. That’s what the big green garbage can that is assigned to your house by the city is for. It’s not for your garbage and plastic crap. If you keep filling it with crap, it will keep not getting emptied on garbage day. And it will get so heavy that no one will be able to move it off the curb, where you annoyingly leave it. So, learn to compost, get the crap out of your green bin (yes, your problem!) and learn how to “do” garbage in 2020 (hint, there’s an app!). After half a year in school here, you got this! Signed, your non-rodent-loving neighbours.

First-world coffee problems

Posted By on Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 1:15 PM

megaphone.jpg
I wish a certain popular Canadian coffee chain would buy a new toaster that actually toasts their doughy-ass bagels. I ask for mine to be toasted twice, and the thing is black and tastes burnt but is STILL doughy AF and not a bit of crispiness at all! I'm never buying your shitty-ass bagels again! I might as well eat a raw ball of dough. Also, could you stop putting little pinholes in your coffee lids please? What is the meaning of this? The drippage has completely ruined my new UGGS!

Housing runaround

Posted By on Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 9:43 AM

megaphone.jpg

I applied for housing back in the summer, and have just now been contacted and told that I'm being added to a waiting list. I thought I’d been placed on the waitlist long ago, but no. Apparently it takes six months just to be added to the damn waiting list. What has my application been doing for six months??? Sitting on someone's desk, collecting dust? Then my landlord tells me that my power bill has to be completely paid off to be accepted, and my cat must be fixed. Where the hell am I supposed to come up with all this extra money to pay hundreds for a procedure I don't want my cat to have to go through anyway? She's only a kitten, and I would rather wait to have to get her fixed when she's older. This is unfair to expect of low-income people. Landlords need to stop telling people how to live. Also, all the best locations with housing are designated for seniors and for families. Single people get the shittiest buildings in the worst areas with gunshots and drugs. This is age discrimination against young, single people. Metro Housing is run by a bunch of morons who don't know what the fuck they're doing. How are people supposed to survive in this town? It's pretty bad when a 40-year-old person has to move into a single room, with a single bed, shacked up with five college students in one apartment. When are the municipal politicians that we voted into office going to do something about this serious issue in HRM?

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.
