Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Sept. 25, 2014)

  • A tow truck full of roses to Steve from Unitow who came and unlocked my car after I had left my keys in it – and for trusting me to go home and get money to pay him. Your smile and customer service skills were greatly appreciated. I also wanted to send bunches of roses to Adam from Core Security who waited with me until Steve came with the tow truck. It was dark, and I not only appreciated your presence but I also enjoyed your company. You deserve a raise

  • A million acres of red roses for the gentleman who paid for my husband’s and my meal at the Keg on Monday, Sept. 15. Both of us are still in awe at your kindness and generosity. Thank you a million times over for this very special act of kindness.

  • A motorcycle sidecar full of roses to Jon and the staff of The Henry, Mike and the staff of Sammy J’s and Karen Lee Batten and her band for their support of "Brenden’s Ride For Easter Seals," a motorcycle ride/fundraiser, held on Sept. 13, to send disabled kids to Easter Seals Camp Squamish. At last count, the ride raised enough to send 26 kids to the camp.

  • A bike covered with roses to the man who offered to replace my son’s very expensive bike that was stolen at Frank Hurt school – I applaud you! I am so ecstatically grateful for your generous offer. Though we declined your offer, (we have replaced the bike already), I am so humbled by your generosity. Words cannot convey the gratitude we feel!

  • $40 worth of roses (per kid per day) to the courageous teachers who stood up for public education at great personal sacrifice. Thank you for improving conditions for our kids! You had our support; you have our gratitude.

  • Rotten tomatoes to the crazy nutjob who keeps bothering the strata council. I feel very sorry for these people that they have to put with a lowlife scumbag like you. You’re a creep and nobody likes you. It if was me, you’d think twice before shooting off your big mouth. Shut up and go away.

  • Rotten tomatoes to a certain donutand-coffee chain for not having a bottle-recycling option at its restaurant at 64th and Scott Road in Surrey. The staffer put the empty plastic bottle in the trash. What a shame.

  • Asphalt-covered rotten tomatoes to the region’s bridge-toll company for the horribly long wait time on its customer "service" phone line. 42 minutes. Ugh. And the same flaccid jazz song for the entire time, too. C’mon, people!

  • Two bushels of rotten tomatoes to the owners of a local currency exchange/jewelry business. How rude to talk about a customer and make rude comments about them, that they can hear, just because they didn’t purchase an item after looking in your jewelry cases. You don’t have to buy every time you enter a store. We have purchased there before but never again. Shame on you. Get happy.

  • Rotten tomatoes to the useless old farts on the strata council in our building. You’re all a bunch of spineless, gutless cowards. Step down and let smart people take over. Small wonder the property value is sinking

  • A dump truck of rotten tomatoes to the Delta bylaw officer for threatening injured and elderly people to clean up their yards, or be fined. You are a heartless soul with no sense of compassion or reasoning. I don’t know how you sleep at night.
