Coffee in Dartmouth

Posted By on Wed, Oct 2, 2019 at 2:52 PM

Can some Dartmouth coffee shop please sell coffee in bulk so I don't have to get it in a plastic, non-recyclable bag every time?? I'm sure the downtown Darkside crowd would show up with their Tupperware.

Can't even hear my own music!

I wanted to take a moment out of my busy schedule to lambast the food truck that has been acoustically assaulting me these past few weeks. All the food trucks I have encountered around the HRM are for the most part nice and quiet, yet you folks feel the need to drag around a small but boisterous power generator. Clearly this is not a common standard among the fleet of mobile gourmands that grace our streets and parking lots. I can’t imagine anyone patronizing you without the use of a megaphone to place their order or, at the very least, cue cards. Take a page from the book of the food truck masters who have been around since the 1970s and silence that little generator once and for all!

Ready to drop your pitchforks yet?

Posted By on Fri, Sep 20, 2019 at 12:12 PM

Toxic callout culture mob mentality "warriors"—are you ready to drop your pitchforks yet? Callout culture is ending, and everyone now notices how every time your group disagrees with people or has conflict, they're cancelled. YOU are scarier to people in the community than the people you cancel, but people are too afraid of your social power to stand up to you—mostly for fear of being blacklisted and isolated from any community contact. How does it feel knowing that the marginalized and underprivileged hoard that you blacklisted from accessing any resources in their own community are coming back with a vengeance? Have you come to terms with your own privilege? Are you able to move past your own stumbling blocks? Hmm.

The shitty lover!

Responsible polyamory is NOT: Agreeing to be "open" and then not seeing or speaking to your partner for weeks, only to show up at her birthday party while she's trying to run things and casually mention, "hey love you lots I'm feeling frisky again I'm available for that now" and in the same breath, "oh by the way I've been seeing some other people"—WITH DETAILS about the people?? Like, she doesn't wanna find that out in that moment. That's a sit-down conversation. Or maybe you've already agreed to be poly and not share when you're seeing other people.

But YOU show up, you're already drunk and high and she's stressed out trying to host a party. She hasn't heard from you in ages and you just drop in and catch her the one moment she's alone and she feels cornered and—UGH makes me so mad that hot guys get away with that shit. She didn't deserve that. You don't even know how much you hurt her. She should have dumped your ass ages ago. She can do SO much better.

I hope the other people you're "casually" seeing can see that how you behave is NOT OK, and they don't make excuses for you. I hope you can get your shit together and stop using alcohol and weed to avoid your problems! There are a lot of people who care about you in this city! But the more you act like that, the fewer they will be.

Share the sidewalk!

Here in Nova Scotia our populace is still small enough that we extend courtesy to those around us, especially on the sidewalks. I understand if you come from a place where this is not the case, but if you are a guest here, please leave your disregard for others at the door.

Phone zombies, no bag limit

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!

Our hurricane-ravaged city is NOT a Kodak moment!!!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 3:48 PM

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!

Shitty mental health system

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 9:02 AM

bitch-fork-pill.jpg
Most of the medications they've given me don’t work, and most of their other treatments like CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) don’t work either, and I think that's mostly because I was misdiagnosed. All that most of the medications do to me is make me stupid or sedate me—other than that, no benefits. The doctors even agree with me, but then continue giving me the meds that don’t do anything. It makes no sense. They refuse to reassess my diagnosis. To make matters worse, pretty much all of them refuse to taper me off the medications I don’t want to take, so I get horrible withdrawals. Any kind of problems with my mental health that I ask for help for, they refuse to deal with. Their OTs or whatever they're called mostly fixate on my diagnosis and anything about anxiety/social skills problems go in one ear and out the other it seems.

Trees: you CAN have too much of a good thing

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2019 at 3:34 PM

finger-on-target.jpg
A big thank you to the guys in khaki from Gagetown, NB who arrived Sunday afternoon to cut my fallen tree down to size, done in 10 minutes, and neatly stacked curbside all ready for the HRM chipper. BUT I couldn't help wondering what all this Hurricane Dorian clean-up is costing the taxpayer, much of which could be prevented if the municipality seriously rethought its tree-planting policy: On my walks over the weekend, I noticed that almost all of the fallen trees had very shallow roots; our urban environment of concrete and asphalt makes it impossible for trees to send down deep roots. My particular young tree had been planted right into the wires extending from my roof corner and right up against my underground water main. Did we learn nothing from Hurricane Juan? HRM must stop planting trees that grow to be 100 feet high: I suggest that HRM plant trees native to NS that will grow to be no more than 15-to-20 feet high. Everyone will still get their summer shade and carbon-cleaning, but they will no longer be a hazard to people's homes and overhead wires. There will also be a LOT fewer leaves in the fall clogging up our stormwater catch basins, which is a major cause of flooding.

Unfashionable hipster hoes

I keep seeing chicks these days that look so unattractive, who clearly do the most when it comes to fashion trends. However, they would probably look a hell of a lot prettier if they actually did nothing. Like for instance, I saw this chick that would probably look pretty cute, IF she hadn't shaved off the sides of her head and put on these wacky square eyeglass frames with the bar across the top of the lenses (are they even prescription)? A lot of chicks are wearing those weird mom jeans rolled up halfway up their calves, clothes from the ’80s, blue lipstick and all kinds of craziness. Gurls be lookin tore up from the floor up! You are never going to meet a man looking like that. That's OK, I'll take all the men for myself, you keep fuglying yourself up with these weird-ass trends.

Why does no one ever write a Love about me?

Posted By on Sat, Sep 7, 2019 at 9:05 AM

storm-cloud-over-head.jpg
I read the Loves all the time hoping someday one will be from someone who noticed me on a bus or at the grocery store and wished they'd said something. Many of these are clearly written about my friends or people I know who get noticed in a "missed connections" kind of way and maybe it's petty of me, but… how come I never get written about? I'm a hell of a woman. Not as thin as my younger prettier friends who get written about? Hmm. Or am I just "intimidating" like they say? I'm not! I'm friendly and approachable! I love people! Unless you're a creep. Then you can fuck right off. Maybe it's just creeps who write in? What does that make me? Oh shit.

Willow Tree mess

Dear HRM politicians and staff: The Willow Tree intersection at Robie and Quinpool needs a roundabout! Having five streets with stop lights makes for a complete nightmare. Fix this.

Bikes, lanes and automobiles

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2019 at 2:36 PM

hires.jpg
Do all jackass drivers in this province get a driver’s permit, regardless of incompetency and stupidity? I drive, walk and use my bicycle in good weather. I’m 63, and I have seen/experienced my share of close calls and collisions. While cycling in a bike lane in Halifax (during daylight) over the Labour Day Weekend, a driver trailing my bike-riding wife drove parallel to me, when I was riding carefully on my bicycle. We’re side-by-side on Lower Water Street. Not quite certain what this clueless-looking driver wanted to do, I started braking. Sure enough, the driver cuts in front of me and crosses the bike lane into a parking lot. WTF? Another head-shaking close call, courtesy of a careless and crack-brained motorist.
