Bouquet. Thank you to all health workers for their dedication to our community. Thank you to the doctors and nurses who put their health on the line for us. Without them, I don’t know where we would be.

Beef to the fellow at the store’s lunch area, continually coughing without putting his hand over his mouth. I guess some people just don’t care about the others trying to enjoy lunch. These are trying times.

Beef to the woman at the supermarket for opening multiple bags of grapes and sampling out of each bag. Not only were you eating unwashed fruit, but you were also stealing. Maybe you should have shopped elsewhere if you wanted free samples.

Beef to the person who stole RAM out of my mom’s computer when we took it in for servicing. I put two additional cards in for her when I gave her the computer a year ago, and they were missing when we got the computer back.

Beef to the lazy, irresponsible children who feel they are owed a living because they didn’t ask to be born. Who was? So, you expect to freeload off your parents and society forever?

Beef to the strata council that is dysfunctional and corrupt. A shame that one person has the power to influence an entire group. You should collect the other side of the story before you judge. Damage is done with the spreading of vicious stories all over an entire neighbourhood.

Beef to the corner store that would not sell a package of cigarettes to a 55-year-old man who just got off work and didn’t have his ID with him. Has the world gone crazy?

Beef to those who bring their dogs into Buttertubs Marsh. There are ‘no dogs’ signs at every entrance. Maybe you were spoiled as children, so now you have no respect for others, be it birds or other people. Please stop promoting the current entitlement trend; it’s very unattractive.

Beef to the man driving the silver Fiesta on the Parkway. Good luck with your audition for the Fast and Furious: Island Life movie. With your driving skills, you’re a lock.

Beef to the builder of the two homes beside us in south Nanaimo. The guy does not keep his promises, buries huge blast rock in driveways and covers them over, takes from others without payback, cuts corners on his home building and lets his dog run around the neighbourhood free to mess on people’s property with no cares of cleaning it up.

Beef to our once-favourite Chinese food restaurant that would not deliver our order to us because we were six cents under the minimum order for delivery. Lost our business.
