Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (June 11, 2020)

Our weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers

CLICK HERE to send your submissions.

  • A huge truck load of rotten tomatoes to those who complained about the outside exercise program at the South Surrey seniors home. Movement and exercise is an essential part of good physical and mental health for everyone, especially those who are shut in and don’t have a choice like the rest of us. Give them back both exercise times! Then, if you don’t like the music, shut your windows!
  • Roses to the lady who waved us over on 96th Avenue on June 3 and told us it appeared we had a wheel wobbling. We pulled onto a side street and I had my wife drive ahead as I watched from behind. Sure enough, she was right. We drove straight to the JP Hyundai dealer and they immediately put it on the hoist and discovered the problem (Thank you also to them for their quick service). A spacer from the winter wheels had stayed on the brake hub when changing back to the summer tires, preventing the wheel from attaching squarely. If left, it would have caused uneven tire wear, or worse, the wheel could have came loose and fell off.
  • Rotten tomatoes and a box of tissue to those who think it is OK to continue to spit in public. This is a serious and fine-able offense in some countries. These are such unprecedented times whereby airborne respiratory molecules can be lethal for some people, not to mention that the behaviour is simply repulsive. Use a tissue!
  • Rotten tomatoes to the idiot ripping back and forth in our community on his little blue crotch rocket. He must be zipping by going at least 100 km/h in front of our Cloverdale complex, which by the way, is filled with young families. One day, we will catch your plate number or see your stupid little motorcycle parked in front of where you live – if you’re still alive and haven’t been in a crash yet, that is.
