Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (June 16, 2017)

Our weekly collection of compliments and complaints sent in by readers.

  • A giant bouquet of roses to Susan Jansons who wrote the best letter to the editor (June 9th). She said what many, many taxpayers feel and are annoyed about. Remember the slogan, “Just say no!” And by the way, it’s not too late to say no.
  • Rotten tomatoes to neighbours in Cloverdale. It is inconsiderate to let your kids outside to scream and dribble and shoot a basketball at 7:30 a.m. Your neighbours work shift work and are trying to sleep. What are you teaching your kids? That it’s OK to be an inconsiderate jerk? And rotten tomatoes once again to Surrey’s bylaw department for saying two households need to complain in order for anything to be done.
  • Car loads of smelly rotten tomatoes to our neighbours on 83rd Avenue. How many vehicles do you need? You’re parking them all over the road because you don’t have room for them. Our street used to be neat until you moved there. Sell some, or maybe sell your house and buy a car dealership!
  • Rotten tomatoes to drivers who don’t know what ‘Yield’ signs mean on roundabouts. Yield means that drivers on your right side have the right of way to enter, not two, or three, or four cars at once going through.
  • Rotten tomatoes to my narcissistic retired neighbours for being so inconsiderate and running their hot tub all night. I don’t know how to continue to plead with you to stop this noise pollution, whilst it continues to interfere with a good night’s rest. Hopefully your Hydro bill will be a strain on your pocketbook.
  • Rotten tomatoes to the city and the RCMP for turning a blind eye to panhandlers at the intersection of 96th Avenue and King George Boulevard. These people come out all day, especially from 4 p.m. till after dark. Every time the light stops traffic, they are out running through the cars and are aggressive. Someone is going to be killed for sure there. When are they going to stop this? That’s our mayor for you.
