Re: “Local designers and colonialism

I agree with this post. I just think it would have made the argument a bit stronger had the poster spelled Colombia correctly.

Re: “Work to rule Trivia

This question is very vague to me. I'm not sure I understand its purpose... Also, to the person who listed in-service days as one of the many benefits teachers get that other do not, I might remind you that "in-service" means that the teachers are 'in service', as in they are participating in mandatory professional development and meetings, not sitting at home collecting vacation pay.

Re: “Trashy dumping

Yes, I echo this! Also, please don't leave your poorly sorted recyclables on the curb in front of my house because then I have to deal with the "rejected" bad. Ugh.

Re: “There was no stop!

Absolutely agree. This story (or lack thereof) would have the same impact (or lack thereof) if 34 Regular had not mentioned that the woman was Deaf. I suspect hundreds of people yell at bus drivers every day; it is often uncalled for and unfair but it happens. Maybe the woman was fed up having to constantly navigate an inaccessible city at she hit her breaking point, maybe she is just a cranky person, maybe her dog just died, but it really doesn't matter. If the complaint is about how people really shouldn't yell at bus drivers who are just doing their job, that's completely fair. Otherwise, not so much...

Re: “Halifax Transit drops $17 million on new buses

Although I like the idea of new and environmentally friendly buses, I think I would prefer the money to go to overhauling the Access-A-Bus service which is poorly managed and really in many ways, inaccessible.

Re: “Grocery store bitch

I agree completely in principle, except that EVERY time I use the self checkout something goes wrong. They can't recognize the bag I've brought, the thing doesn't scan, the machine won't take my money etc. etc. I am fairly technologically competent and I never use the self checkout for more than a few items and still I'm sure I hold up the line ups because it never seems to work!!!

Re: “Drivers' Ed 101

Except that the rotary really has not thing to do with it. Just saying that the driver was going towards the rotary (okay, roundabout if you prefer). The incident happened five minutes away from the Armdale Roundabout/Rotary.
