Beefs and bouquets

Beef to the lady who nearly hit myself and my young baby when exiting a parking lot without looking and proceeded to yell at me that “a sidewalk is not a crosswalk.” I think you failed to remember that you should make sure your surroundings are clear before turning right.

Beef to the lady who walked into a coffee shop and was racist, disrespecting me for my colour and English skills when there were other customers around me, all for a chipotle dip. You don’t know a thing about my life and hardship or any of us working there.

Beef. You are supposed to yield for pedestrians at intersections. You’re not even supposed to proceed forward until the pedestrian has made it safely across to the other side. Girl what are you doing?

Beef to the people who drove around a seriously injured man on Bowen Road the other night, shame on you. To the person who stole his backpack before the police and ambulance arrived, you are beyond contempt. What has happened to our society?

Bouquet to the writer thanking their neighbourhood watch. Unlike the households in Departure Bay who blatantly violate my rights, including trespassing, throwing glass shards, nails under tires, eavesdropping, use of spy cameras, throwing pork chop bones puncturing dog’s stomach lining, lying to SPCA, and sexual harassment. I still don’t care to know most of your names. Single ladies, you’re not alone. We have class and uphold our moral ground.

Beef to the auto dealership. I backed into one of their vehicles. There was no damage to their vehicle but no pictures where taken by me. They made a false ICBC claim and lied in their statement to them.

Beef to the real estate agent who brings clients to my home just to point out all the features you don’t like. Know your clients and sell the house or don’t even bother wasting everyone’s time. I clean my house up for you to show and you show no respect for our listing.

Beef to the man who opened his door and back door on his work truck then proceeded to pee in the middle of the parking lot in the afternoon. I could slam you and your company as both names were on the truck.

Beef to the male driver of the Ford F-150 at Westwood Lake who lost his temper with his dog and dragged it back to his truck with a tight leash such that the dog’s front feet were off the ground because he was upset by its behaviour. If your dog’s behaviour frustrates you, take lessons in dog training.

Beef. Be aware of a handyman and his wife who prey on vulnerable seniors. I paid him to take my belongings to two charitable organizations; instead, he took my belongings to their home; I caught them selling my belongings in their garage sale a couple of weeks later.

Beef to the driver who almost drove me off the road at the intersection of Highway 19 and Mostar Road. In case you don’t know what that red triangle is for: it means yield. Fortunately there was no one in the adjacent lane and I was able to veer over.

Beef to all of the people who walked and drove by outside of the coffee shop when my eight-months-pregnant niece tripped and fell on the curb. She injured both her knees badly. She struggled back on her feet with no help. We are grateful baby is OK.

Beef to the neighbour screaming foul language over the fence at two pre-school children and their parents while accusing the children of being overly loud. This is a family neighbourhood and your behavior was unacceptable.
