Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (May 7, 2015)


  • Beautiful roses to two kind people at the dollar store, on Friday, May 1 at about 6 p.m., who paid $10 to the cashier for my bill. Thank you for your unbelievable kindness.

  • Tons of red roses to all the staff at Your Eyes Only optical store in Surrey. Their exemplary service is consistently friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. One employee came in to work on her day off to accommodate my schedule so I could retrieve my new glasses. She didn’t want me to struggle with an old prescription. Where else could you find service like that? It is great to patronize a store where there is never a problem. Well done!

  • To my husband Bryce for his birthday, an 11-rose bouquet to signify how truly and deeply loved you are. Two red to say I love you, two light pink of admiration and gladness, two white for your charm and innocence. For the love and growth of our marriage, two lavender, to show my appreciation and gratitude for all the love, patience and stability you bring to our family, two deep peach, and finally one brilliant yellow rose for all the joy you share. Happy birthday to the man of my dreams.

  • Red roses to dog owners who abide by the bylaw requiring their pets to be leashed when walking along Burns Bog Nature Reserve trails.

  • Roses to drivers who wave or nod when you let them in. A little courtesy goes a long way.


  • I’d like to send a steaming pile of rotten tomatoes to the "person" who stole my brother’s car! This past year he has been in treatment for brain cancer: six surgeries, numerous hours of chemotherapy, radiation therapy and doctors appointments. Because of the damage caused during your joy ride, he now has to arrange rides for appointments until he can afford to repair his car. You should be ashamed!

  • Rotten tomatoes to the stupid idiot who tried to steal an innocent person’s car outside Pricemart in Fleetwood. May karma bite you in the arse. Also, rotten tomatoes to the disgusting crackheads on Fraser Highway in Fleetwood who bum people for change and hang around the liquor store. Get a job. More rotten tomatoes to the bleeding hearts who give them money. You guys are such morons.

  • Rotten tomatoes go out to the City of Surrey for not providing dog garbage bins for us owners to use. So Metro Vancouver has it but we don’t? That is very unfair! We could use a lot of these in our parks because garbage gets so piled up here! You either create them or we will have no choice but to place them all in front of your building!

  • Rotten tomatoes to all you people who insist on talking on your cell phones and annoying people in stores. Get a phone booth. I am not interested in your foul mouth in most cases and what your problems are, or whatever. Take your phone and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine.
