Beefs and bouquets

Beef to the camper who had a campfire on Mt. Benson in the false summit area. A bouquet to the man who berated the camper, and who then carried 10 litres of water up to the site the next morning and extinguished the still-smouldering, unattended fire.

Beef to the revolting people who actually spit on a food delivery person when he was 10 minutes late. Reminder: these days that can be termed as assault.

Beef to the woman at the supermarket who was measuring out bulk spices pinch by pinch with her bare hands. I told her that that was really unsanitary and she studiously ignored me.

Beef. Why we can’t have nice things: dropping your garbage on the floor in the picnic shelter at Bowen Park 2.5 metres from a trash container is beyond lazy and inconsiderate. (Photo submitted)

Every time I go to a park I see kids running around, having fun. But I also see most parents sitting off to the side, ignoring their children, face down in their phone.

Beef to the top brand name of canned spaghetti. Opened it up and half full of noodles. Sauce was like water. Absolutely no taste. Very disappointed. Feel sorry for the young people who don’t know the good times.

Beef to the people who feel it is their right to open every ear of corn before they decide which one fits their criteria. Also to the grocery store that allows it during this pandemic, actually, ever.

Beef to all the beefers. Can we just make this bouquets only? There’s too many negativities out here already. Let’s just hear more upbeat comments. As I’ve been told many times, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say it.’

Beef to the athlete at the local pickleball courts talkin’ all that stuff. No one needs your unsolicited advice on the court. Especially when I’ve been mopping up your kitchen for weeks.

Beef to the moving and storage company in a neighbouring city. A ‘free quote’ is not free when you hide behind company policy to refuse to refund a deposit on a moving date 40 days away. We paid $250 for a ‘free quote’ which we promptly declined to accept, and as a result your company will also collect $250 from another customer that weekend.

Beef to those who do not know how to get on an elevator. You do not stand right in front with your feet six inches from the door, preventing anyone being able to get off. It is only common sense.

Beef to the lady who went onto my property then proceeded to take my large plant from my home. I found out and asked for it returned. You said I was dramatic? You should be ashamed of yourself.

Beef to the property management firm. Despite someone asking for elevator to be checked nothing was done. The elevator was down for more than seven hours despite numerous calls. A 90-year-old man with a walker after waiting two hours had to walk up five flights.

Beef to portable speaker enthusiasts. You are not my DJ. In fact, you should be kind of embarrassed by your taste in music. Do us both a favour and put some headphones on.

Bouquet. My small dog and I were being attacked by two large dogs. I got my dog under me and screamed for someone to help. A man on the opposite side of the street, even though he had a baby in a chest harness, came over right away and kicked the two dogs off of us. This man was my hero that day and I cannot thank him enough for what he did.
