Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Oct. 23, 2014)

  • Beautiful bouquets of roses to everyone who supported the Surrey office of the Canadian Cancer Society’s first fashion show, Oct. 18 at Bear Creek Villa. You did such a great job, along with all the volunteers who made it possible for us to raise money for Cops for Cancer.

  • Roses to the lady who, along with her two young sons, stopped to check on me and phone 911. While mowing, I had stumbled and landed flat on my face on the sidewalk. Also, roses plus brewskies to the Surrey fire and ambulance crews who cared for me, especially the fireman who finished mowing our lawn.

  • A big bushel of roses to the gentleman on the #301 bus who saw me drop my keys as I exited the bus – and made the bus driver wait as he chased me down to hand me back my keys! You, sir, made my day.

  • Roses to a high school buddy of mine. It’s too bad the way things turned out, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Things change, stuff happens. Life goes on.

  • A red rose to the people at Kal Tire in Cloverdale for repairing my mom’s flat tire so quickly last Saturday. Due to medical reasons, this was a very stressful time for my dad, but your quickness and efficiency made all the difference in what could have been much worse. The "no charge" was an added bonus!

  • Roses to my neighbors. I’m sorry things ended up on the wrong foot. I want you to know that I miss you guys. You were by far the nicest people in our building. I hope you are doing well and wish you all the best.

  • Roses to Sesame Street, the best kids show on TV. The more children watch Sesame Street, the better they do in school.

  • A dozen bag full of stinky, rotten tomatoes go to the very angry 502 bus driver, a woman who kept yelling at people to stop holding the bars on the back door. It is very crowded on the bus – what do you expect us to do, fall and break our heads? You’ve been reported anyway, so that way it will teach you a lesson to respect your transit users.

  • Rotten tomatoes to the fools who designed and accepted the plans to put in a planter instead of a sidewalk at the entrance to the mall in Guildford, on 105th Avenue at 150th Street. Now people are walking on the road. Shame on you all!

  • A huge crate of nasty, rotten tomatoes to the low-lifers who are going around, house to house, stealing Halloween pumpkins. I spend a lot of time setting up my home for the kids, but I’m not sure I will do it this year – wouldn’t want to have it all stolen or vandalized. Buy your own $5 pumpkin!

  • Rotten tomatoes should be thrown at people 16 years and over who ride bicycles and motor scooters on sidewalks. Also, those who ride without helmets, ride in crosswalks, make illegal lane changes, ride on the left side of the road, ride their bicycles against traffic and basically don’t follow the rules of the road. Some of this is downright dangerous. All this when there is a bicycle lane on the road made especially for them.

  • Rotten tomatoes go out to the stupid man for trespassing on our complex and disturbing our neighbours over a complaint about our dogs. What gives you the right to harass us and call strata and threaten us? If you don’t like it, shut up and move away – or complain about the barking dogs that live in your own complex!
