Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Sept. 3, 2020)

Our weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers

  • Roses to the person who “paid it forward” by paying my tire repair bill last week at Kal- Tire on Highway 10 in Cloverdale. I suspect it may have been the woman with the white Mazda who was ahead of me in line with the same tire issue, but my wife maintains it must have been a clerical error (she’s just peanut butter and jealous). While we’re at it, roses to Kal-Tire for their consistently amazing service! You guys rock and deserve all of Surrey’s support.
  • Roses for Eileen Mohan to let her know there are residents of Surrey who care for you. Eileen, you are such an awesome person. Stay strong. Thinking of you.
  • Rotten tomatoes to those who can’t follow simple requests of keeping a mask on and social distancing. We live in a world where conspiracies far outpace the truth. People won’t even heed expert advice on viruses.
  • Rotten tomatoes to people who toss their used masks and gloves anywhere on the street. Ever hear of garbage bins? And how about the slobs who do the same thing with their empty drink containers, chip bags, candy wrappers and cigarette packs (not to mention cigarette butts)? Ever hear of recycling bins? Do you really like to see all this strewn about everywhere? You just don’t care, do you?
