Beautiful roses to Rosa, the lovely lady who picked up the balance of my tab at Safeway when I forgot my credit card and only had a small amount of cash. Bless you!
Rotten tomatoes to the gossipers in our trailer park. What is the fascination? Maybe you should look at yourself before ridiculing others - there are far more interesting things in life. Mind your own business.
Bouquet of roses to the kind gentleman at Shoppers who paid for my purchase on Jan. 11 when I realized I had forgotten my wallet at home.
Rotten tomatoes to all dog owners who fail to pick up after their pets. I walk a dog and find piles of excrement on lawns and boulevards. The other irritant is the people who pick up and leave the bag of poop on the street, behind a tree or flung into someone's bushes. Come on people - keep our neighbourhoods free of such debris.
Rotten tomatoes to adults who have bad manners. Do you not realize it's rude and selfish to use or answer your cellphone while you are talking to a person who is right in front of you? That's what voice mail is for. It's disrespectful and just outright ignorant. Maybe your time could be better spent on improving your social skills.
A popcorn bag full of rotten tomatoes to the four girls at the Strawberry Hill theatre's Jan. 8 showing of 'Les Miserables.' Your texting, laughing and talking during the movie was so annoying. Even after I asked you to be quiet, you continued to show no consideration. Next time, stay home.
Rotten tomatoes to the idiot who threw his cigarette butt out the window. Are people really still doing that?
Rotten tomatoes to the people on my street who have added two additional cars to the parking issues on our street. Clean out your garage and park a car in it - that is what it is for. And rotten tomatoes to the lady who is still getting away with two suites and her tenants are taking street parking away from people who need it.
I'm a young single mom of two young kids. This year I went through the Surrey Christmas Bureau and got sponsored by a Tim Hortons location (I don't know which one though). I'm hoping someone from the Tim Hortons who sponsored us reads this message. I want to deeply thank you so much for sponsoring me and my two little girls! And I really appreciate the camera you guys bought me to help me get started for school in September!
Rotten tomatoes to Surrey bashers. I'm so sick of people bashing the city all the time. Crime, drugs and violence is everywhere, not just Surrey, People need to get their heads out of the sand and wake up!
A smelly bag full of rotten tomatoes to the grumpy old woman at the Fleetwood Village postal outlet who yelled at me because I didn't know my package wasn't from Canada Post. I have a learning disability and don't know much about these things. You are a miserable person who is just miserable with your own life.
Roses to all parents who teach their children manners.
A post office full of rotten tomatoes to Canada Post for moving our community mail boxes at 67th Avenue and 184th Street with no notification of the move or the new location of our mail boxes. It's a nice example of customer service. Not.
An outrigger canoe full of Red Roses to Dr. Johnson and Andrea at Highpoint Animal Hospital, as well as Doreen at the Royal City Humane Society. I had to have my best friend of 20 years, the kitten I adopted while living in Hawaii in 1993, euthanized the other day. Thank you to all for your assistance, support, kindness and compassion. You folks are amazing!
