Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Oct. 9, 2014)

Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Oct. 9, 2014)

  • A train full of red roses and thanks to all the dedicated volunteers that have made visits to the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway in Cloverdale on the weekends so enjoyable and interesting, even when the refurbished Interurban 1225 could not run due to blockage of tracks.

  • Some people complain of our medical system, but I have nothing but beautiful red roses to the doctors and nurses at Peace Arch Emergency area and on Floor 2. I encountered wonderful attentive nurses with a sense of humour and efficient, kind, caring doctors. Totally grateful, Vicki M.

  • A huge bouquet of red roses to the cashier at Michaels in Surrey who found my bracelet. I went back to ask if anyone had turned it in, knowing it was a long shot. She held it up and said, "this bracelet?" – and I literally could have hugged her. I was so relieved. Thanks so much for finding it.

  • A window full of roses to Denis at Speedy Glass on Fraser Highway in Fleetwood. He was very kind, his technician cleaned up a pile of broken glass throughout my car, gave me a free temporary fix so I could go to work (having to park in the rain). Thank you so much!

  • Red roses to the police in Newton.

  • I know a lot of negativity has been expressed lately regarding policing of the Newton area. I am very pleased to see the walking patrols around the King George corridor in Newton. This not only makes us feel safer but it makes the bad among us a little nervous. Thank you.

  • A big bouquet of red roses to the nice gentleman and his little girl for offering me his parking at the Jim Pattison outpatient pavilion on a wet Tuesday afternoon. You were so very kind.

  • BC Place full of rotten tomatoes to the spineless jellyfish of a neighbour who phoned parking enforcement because my wife’s truck was parked in front of our house on a cul-de-sac with no insurance for one day. She got a $30 ticket and was towed 30 minutes later. Not only do we have no money for insurance now, due to the impoundment bill, she can’t even go to work. Way to go, glad we have neighbours like you. You must be a superhero, singlehandedly putting people out of work. Get a life, loser.

  • Shame on you, grannie, for harassing, making up stories and gossiping in our trailer park. What do you get out of harassing the young couple? They are ideal neighbors – quiet, and they have a beautiful yard. You must be jealous. Stop bullying them and get help or move. We do not need you to spoil our quiet community, so shut up.

  • Rotten tomatoes for a certain pub in Guildford for refusing to show support toward designated drivers by charging us $9 for three pops (90 per cent icefilled), and then claiming it was industry standard to do that. They just lost a dozen regulars.

  • A garbage load of rotten tomatoes to the individual who sent rotten tomatoes to "someone" who had been coughing for three months and was then told to see a doctor. Be a good neighbour and check – it may be the person has a chronic cough and is not actually sick. Perhaps the coughing is from breathing someone else’s fabric softener smells emanating from a dryer vent!

  • Rotten tomatoes to people who complain about this column. Find something better to do with your time. Go to your jobs.
