Candy Canes

  • Candy canes to the Gold Room in Surrey. Charlene created the best wedding ring a woman could ever ask for! It combines family heirloom diamonds of all different sizes and is very special to me. They were professional, informative and they double checked everything every step of the way to ensure I was happy with everything. I will be back!
  • Candy canes to the lovely couple who gave me one of their extra 30 per cent off discount cards at the check out stand in Value Village. What a joy it was to save on some Christmas gifts I was purchasing. I hope you both have a wonderful holiday season.
  • Candy canes to the cast and crew of the Betty Huff Theatre Club. Watching you perform Annie Jr. was enjoyable and funny. Thanks for a great evening!
  • Candy canes to the Surrey Christmas Bureau. Each year my mother and I sponsor a family through this much-needed charity that helps make Christmas happen for hundreds of local families. A whole box of candy canes to co-ordinator KC Gilroy.
  • Candy canes to the Fleetwood Park junior team for winning the recent Kwantlen Science Challenge. Congratulations also go to the junior teams from Earl Marriott (fourth place) and Fraser Heights (fifth). Smart kids in our midst!

Coal

  • Coal to the people who came to a 80- year-old friend’s yard sale with their children. They all spread out and we saw them take some items. We didn’t say anything because we were totally disgusted. He was selling his stuff because he is going to a retirement home. What are you teaching your kids? You people are pathetic. God help you.
  • Coal to the woman who couldn’t differentiate a large dog urinating from one defecating (people with class don’t use the word you used). You wanted me to pick up her urine? Perhaps you should remove the phone from your ear and pay attention to what’s going on around you.
  • Coal to the gas stations who are ripping off people with gas prices. A barrel of oil was $37 the other day, yet gas prices were going even higher at the pumps. Even with our low dollar, it is still cheaper to buy gas in the U.S.
  • An infinite shipment of coal to the young employee working at the Guildford Town Centre Canada Post branch who said something in another language to a co-worker while I was paying for my postage. I guess your mother failed to raise you right. So here’s a quick lesson:  It’s just plain rude to speak in another language in front of others who do not speak that same language. Although I did not understand a word of what you said, your snickering and body language spoke volumes. Shame on you!
