Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Nov. 12, 2015)

Our weekly feature gives readers a chance to vent about things that enrage them - or to thank a certain someone who made their day.

ROSES

  • Roses to the veteran who was taking care of the poppy donation at Save-On Foods. Your kind gesture of pinning my poppy to my jacket did not go unnoticed. I also noticed all your medals you were wearing and wish I could have had the time to talk to you about them. Thank you for your service.
  • Roses to Const. Michelle from the prairies for making sure I got through the intersection safely with my wife and two kids in the car after I ran out of gas during rush hour.
  • A beautiful, colourful bouquet of roses to Derek at Newton Service for helping me escape the clutches of a scam artist before I lost $1,500.
  • A big armful of roses to the anonymous angel who found my wallet at Scotiabank Guildford and turned it in. I wish I could have thanked you personally. Your honesty made my day!
  • Roses to Ann and the owner of the Dollarama in Central City for finding my purse I left on a display. You have saved my life – I cannot imagine what I would have done if it had been taken by someone that was not as honest. These people would not even accept a reward and they need to be acknowledged!

ROTTEN TOMATOES

  • Rotten tomatoes to the woman (I can’t say lady) who picked up the box of chips that fell out of my cart at Costco on King George Blvd. I hope you are proud of yourself, tossing the box into your SUV and driving away. How does it feel to steal from trick-or-treating children?
  • Rotten tomatoes to parents who never taught their kids to share and show restraint. On Halloween night we left a box of Halloween candy out on the front porch for the kids to help themselves and everyone up until 7:30 p.m. had been great at taking only a couple candy bars each but between 7:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. the entire box disappeared – including the box, leaving other little kids with nothing.
  • Rotten tomatoes to uncostumed mothers trick-or-treating with their little children in strollers. They hardly can walk or talk, yet you hold a bag for chocolates for them? Do you really give your babies candies? Or is it for the adults in your house? The tradition is that the child should be able to walk to the front door, and yell out loud, “Trick or Treat!”
  • Many rotten tomatoes to the eight hooded “boys” who destroyed the kiddies slide in our park. Your parents obviously failed you.
