Meter Maids Making Me MAD!!

Posted on Tue, Feb 16, 2016 at 4:00 AM

stack-of-paper.jpg
To the meter maids in the North End, quit it!!

I live in one of the many beautiful North End Halifax heritage row houses that do not have a driveway. As a car owner, I am forced to deal with the woes of on-street Halifax parking, exceptionally infuriating during the winter with the parking ban. Most other Canadian cities have figured out a way to accommodate this situation, by allowing for parking on one side of the street on certain nights, and then switching to the other side of the street the following night, in order to allow for snow removal on both sides of the street. Not in Halifax, no parking whatsoever.

So I secure off-street parking during the parking ban from 1 am to 6 am, and wake up at 6 am on a storm day (work cancelled) to move my car back to the street, so the parking lot can be plowed. Then at 1.20 pm in the afternoon, I receive a $50 parking ticket because my car was "surrounded by snow". Are you kidding me??!! The parking ban says nothing about parking on the street at 1 in the afternoon.

This is following a small war regarding the distance a car can be parked from an intersection, where the meter maid was measuring from the end of the straight edge of a rounded corner, and not the corner itself, and giving tickets. Thankfully the city official whom I spoke with had multiple complaints about that individual and their measuring and revoked the ticket, but come on!!

I suspect that parking enforcement are getting a commission on tickets, which is why they are illegally ticketing cars. This needs to stop!! Do we really need an army of meter maids patrolling the city who write illegal tickets in order to support their existence?? Trim the herd!!

—Look out for snowballs there bud!!

Car broken into on West Street

Posted on Fri, Feb 5, 2016 at 4:00 AM

car_line.jpg
To the jerk(s) who broke into my silver Cavalier on Saturday night: Please return the shit you know you can't use or isn't of value to you. Just call it into lost and found. Pretend it never happened. No big deal. You stole my wallet with zero cash and no credit cards or cards of use to you unless you get off on gaining American Eagle points or want to get 10 percent off at Suzy Shier. You stole my dirty work clothes and work shoes. Can't imagine you want those. You also took my day-planner. Sweet. Now you know when my lab report is due and when I have class on Mondays. Woooop. You know you didn't get away with nothing. You know what you can sell. So please compromise with me and return my purse. It's the least you can do at this point. —Girl Who Has to Work Tomorrow and Needs her Work Shit

Bamboo sheet shenanigans

Shame of union

Posted on Thu, Jan 21, 2016 at 4:00 AM

newspaper.jpg
To the specific union threatening to shame people for taking work: you don't know a person's situation. Threatening to reveal identities and make a person's life hell is not the way to get them on your side. You should be asking them to not take jobs, BUT THAT'S IT. It's tough for a lot of people to get jobs right out of school, and even tougher to get paid freelance work without a lot of experience. So please, can you not shame a human being, possibly trying to feed theirs and another’s mouth, and just ask them politely to not work for a greedy company? Or better yet, reach out and help them find some work. That kindness will go a lot further for your cause then telling them you know what's best and will "blacklist" them for trying to make a living. —Shamefully Yours, the Recent Student Struggle

Cute Extreme Couponer Wannabe

Posted on Wed, Jan 20, 2016 at 4:00 AM

stealing.jpg
To the cute, "Extreme Couponer" brunette at a certain grocery store in Dartmouth on Sunday evening who was with what I assume is your father. You unscrupulous! The cashier told me all about you, you thief! It's because of people like you is why I hate the world. The store knows all your tricks, sweetheart. Like, how you try to use coupons to try and lower the final total on your bill without actually having to buy the item you are using the coupon for; and lying about having a "rain cheque" to get items with expired coupons; and how you were caught peeling "50% off" stickers off of one item and sticking it on another item that you are using a coupon for; and combining coupons to lower your final total even further knowing full well you can't do that. How do you sleep at night? I'm all for being a thrifty shopper, but when you pull dishonest stunts like what you do, you make everyone suspect in the store's eyes. In your cute little twisted head, you probably think that even though you are actually handing over an amount of money to the store, you are technically not "shoplifting". I've got news for you sweetheart, the next time I see you, I am following you around the store and watching you like a hawk, and I will report you to the staff of the store if I catch you pulling one of your stunts. As I already said, you are VERY attractive, but I would bet anything you are single and can't keep a man because no self-respecting dude would put up with your shit. —Hate Cheap

Signs your landlord is actually a soul-sucking demon destroying the city

Posted on Thu, Jan 14, 2016 at 4:00 AM

stealing.jpg
Does your landlord claim to be looking into the mold that perpetually grows across your window ledges, in your toilet, on the walls and furniture and on your clothing but then decides it’s not his problem? Does your landlord ignore your complaints of cockroaches in the building and then when you push for something to happen, blame you for their presence? Do you repeatedly ask for a copy of the lease to no avail, until you try and break the lease due to unfit living conditions, and then it materializes? Do you find that when you finally leave the landlord has not only left all the probelms running amok, but has actually raised the rent on the piece of garbage and will be keeping your damage deposit, kthxbiii? Do you reside in Halifax? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, your landlord is probably a soulless vampire sucking you and your community dry. Get help. Smash private property systems and the ideologies that sustain them. —Boo

Retail

Posted on Thu, Dec 24, 2015 at 4:00 AM

To those companies that rely on "just in time employees,” well there is shock coming your way since you refuse to give full time positions or reasonable hours to those who work or try to work for you. These people, the ones that work for you, cannot afford to buy your products so they take the meager wages you give them and spend it elsewhere. Cool, huh? You pay them, your sales go down, there hours go down, but your competition wins. I think it’s funny that companies think this way and are bewildered when they find out they’re losing money. Race to the bottom. —Retail Smartie

Point Pleasant Thief

Posted on Mon, Dec 14, 2015 at 4:00 AM

stealing.jpg
What a wonderful day for taking my week old son and my wife for a walk in Point Pleasant Park. No jacket needed, leave the toque and purse in the car. Who would have thought at 11am on a Sunday someone would help themselves to our vehicle. Fast forward two hours with a crying newborn and no way to get into or house because we realize the theft upon returning home. What is wrong with you? You better hope you don't pull this shit next weekend or the weekend after. I'll be there. Enjoy the $50 Edna gift card too. Breakfast is on me. —Park Patrol

C'mon, Dal!

I know your investments in the big oil are not turning much profit these days, but I take issue with where you're turning for extra cash. You pull in international students and charge them gargantuan tuition fees, but your screening is weak. This is unfair to the students who are getting crushed by expectations, it is also unfair to their peers and professors. I truly enjoy going to a school with such diversity, but I can't help but think it is for the wrong reasons. Why must you prey on people? —There's got to be another way

Moochiest Mooch on the planet, I'm sure!

Posted on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 at 4:00 AM

stealing.jpg
You know who you are. Coming into work everyday, mooching cigarettes,  money, drives, pain killers, et cetera. Just because I live comfortably and you don't (which is 100 percent your own fault), does not entitle you to what I have earned. When I say no, don't go behind my back and complain about me not doing something or giving something to you. Remember that money I gave you two years ago to buy groceries and dog food? You still haven't paid it back, and it was only $40. You are a grown-ass woman. You have had severe pain on a "monthly basis" since you were a teenager. Newsflash! You can buy Midol at Dollarama. Start taking responsibility for yourself. While I'm at it, stop asking the boss man for money to fix your teeth. You have dental insurance...oh wait! All the cheap dentists have you blacklisted for not paying your bill! Stop expecting everyone to drive you everywhere. If I have to hear you complain about having to work until 12:30 with someone who will not drive you home, and bitch about the boss scheduling you to work with them, I'm gonna puke in your face. It's not her job to arrange your transportation. I just don't understand how a 40-year-old woman can treat others like you do. Also, if I say I don't have something to give, don't go in my purse to see if I actually do or not. That's totally disrespectful. I hope I get you for secret Santa so I can buy you a sign that just says "clue" so maybe you will get one because everyone telling you this ALL THE TIME hasn't worked so far. —The hand that is done feeding

Greedy Cable TV companies

Posted on Mon, Sep 28, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Ok, I get it. You are phasing out your non-HD channels. I really didn't mind that I can only watch my favorite channels from my cable box. But I noticed you haven't been reducing my rates for my basic cable channels. I didn't mind so long as my son could watch his favorite channels on any TV with or without a cable box. But now you have gotten too big for your usual britches. You are still charging the same rate that you have always charged. My son is upset. You've pulled the plug on his family based programming. And, you don't even offer an extra free cable box to compensate for the blatant and deliberate degradation in your family based services. WTF? Are you a spoiled selfish rock star? Money for nothing and your chicks for free? —pissed at your new found business ethics
