  • Bunches of roses to the staff at Iris Day Spa on Kingsway for a fabulous afternoon with my aunt. Way to take things above and beyond ladies!!
  • Roses to the people who take time out to see how the sick are doing.
  • Roses to the community of Sunshine Hills in North Delta who came together to support my family. My husband has ALS, my son has autism and uncontrolled epilepsy. So much love for what they’re doing for us.
  • Thank you to the people around 148th and 82nd who found our dog and called SARC to pick him up. We were out all day at a funeral and came home to see he had dug under the fence. We are thankful he wasn’t hurt and that there are good neighbours like you willing to help others. Thank you again!
  • A bright red rose to the Bank of Montreal and regional VP Ashish Arora for a $25,000 donation to the Surrey School District’s Clubhouse 36 program. The donation will assist more than 150 vulnerable students at three elementary schools in the district with year-long, out-of-school support.
  • A huge bouquet of roses to the gang at Knight Bridge Motors. Kindness, smiles, honesty and genuine compassion for people. Keep up the great work guys. You are all wonderful.
  • Roses to everyone who smiles or says, “Hi” in reply to me in Green Timber Urban Forest. Also, treats to all the dogs and their well-mannered humans. You make for a pleasant run!

Rotten Tomatoes

  • Rotten tomatoes to the owners in our condo complex who continue to park in our visitor parking spaces even though the signs clearly say, “Visitor parking only.” When we have visitors, they have to park on the road and walk in.
  • Rotten tomatoes to the landlords who bully the less fortunate and think they can do whatever they want to them.
  • Rotten tomatoes to certain parents in East Clayton who let their kids scream and beat on each other outside in their back yard before 9 a.m. Have some respect for your neighbours who are so close! Would you like us screaming under your kids’ window at 7 p.m. when you put them to bed? You are such a disrespectful, inconsiderate neighbour.
  • A basket full of moldy rotten tomatoes to the woman who talked on her cell phone all the way from Bridgeport station to the South Surrey park and ride. No one wants to hear your conversation.
  • A thought to the person who expects a “thank you.” When we hold the door open for someone or let a driver in – it’s us who choose to do something nice because we want to… isn’t it? You did it because you were raised that way and although a “thank you” would be nice, don’t turn your good into a bad by expecting something back.
  • Rotten tomatoes to the volunteer coach who acts like he’s big time, as if he’s coaching the 1986 New York Mets instead of a team of 10-year-olds. It’s hilarious to see how you try to intimidate and boss around the parents, children and other coaches of our association.
