Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (June 18, 2015)


• Roses to my wonderful doctor who has saved my life through all the rough times I have been through. Also, roses go out to the wonderful Invergarry Adult Education Centre for helping me through my rough times through all my courses. I will miss you when I graduate. Don’t forget me and I won’t forget you. God bless all of you!

• Roses to Future Shop for providing us with many years of great customer service. We will miss you!

• A rose to Nick and his wonderful dog Chrysus, whom we met on the patio of Good Day Sunshine Cafe, for being so open and sharing his stories with us. Some people complain that it is so hard to connect with people nowadays, and we appreciate that you shared your stories and a part of your coffee break with us.

• Many thanks to the man and his wife who showed extraordinary kindness to my friend and I, two senior ladies. As a random act of kindness, they paid for our meal at a lovely Chinese restaurant at a mall in Newton, at 137th Street and 72nd Avenue. This just made our day. What a good thing to pass on.

• Buckets of beautiful roses to the wonderful lady who found my cash in the Safeway parking lot at 64th Avenue in North Delta and handed it in to customer service. You gave a great boost to my belief in my neighbours.


• Rotten tomatoes to a certain city of Surrey bylaw officer dealing with East Clayton. If you don’t want to hear people complain about their inconsiderate neighbours, then get another job!

• Rotten stinky tomatoes to the mean old man in Fleetwood who came from across the street and swore at our neighbours. Be prepared to deal with police because you have been reported.

• Rotten tomatoes to the driver of the truck who was tailgating and flailing his arms at me for driving 30-km/h through the HT Thrift Elementary school zone. It was 1:05 p.m., when school in session, not 4:59 p.m., when your ire might have been justified. Are you too special to follow rules or does your personal freedom come before children’s safety?

• Rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey for trying to demolish our beautiful trees and forests in Green Timbers so they can extend Fraser Highway and make room for light rail. They call it Green Timbers for a reason you know? Take your construction plan elsewhere and leave our nature be!

• A truckload of rotten tomatoes for a hypocritical city that reminds residents to water boulevard trees, while forgetting to do it themselves.

• Rotten tomatoes to the young man at the Tim Hortons drive-thru who didn’t utter a single word to me even though I said ‘thank you’ three times.
