Sticky Situation

I park my car in Shaunessy several blocks from work. This beautiful heritage mansion that was for sale for months recently sold. This week, the new owners put a padlock on the gate...but couldn't be bothered to salt or shovel their loooonnng piece of sidewalk. I was walking along the grass chewing a piece of gum and inspiration struck. Enjoy working that gum out of the lock you wealthy bastards! Revenge on the rich!


unresolved anxiety caused me to drop out of university, back and forth over 10 years. dropped 10 grand in courses. and now am back in school at 31. I study extremely hard and the kids around me are quick while i constantly stand at an average. Is this worth pursuing?

65 and shoplifting

Was in line at a grocery store when the young lady in front of me picked up a Toberlone, looked at the change in her hand, sighed and returned the choclatey goodness.When her back was turned, i slipped two bars into the bag on her arm. I meant to pay for them but got talking to the cashier and it slipped my mind, till i was halfway home so now i must confess my leap into not feeling too guilty either, so there

Aha! I've got it!

I've finally figured out my stance on Vancouver after years of confusion. You see, I love Vancouver. The only problem is, it's full of Vancouverites. ;)

To the Losers on instagram

Keep your naked legs in the bathtub to yourselves. Okay? Nobody cares. Smart people who really should be on Instagram have no time to brag about their fake wealth on social media. Mature people have more important things to do than show off their side boobs, cheap dollar store sunglasses or second hand range rovers. Please get a life.


You were rude and invasive from the minute I sat down, and I was merely appeasing your crude commentary while I placed my order with the server behind the bar - a pleasant woman who has served me many times at the local burger-bar. I engaged in chatting with you simply because you wouldn't shut up with the bombardment of random questions, without waiting for or listening to my answers. You were insulting by offering your opinion on the food and drink that I ordered. You were irritating with the "name game" and complete lack of social graces. You were disgusting with the sexual overtones and implication that I was touching you intentionally, when I merely accidently brushed your leg because you were man-spread over three bar stools, so it was nearly impossible to avoid it. You wouldn't shut up while I tried to enjoy my meal. You lamely tried to compliment my hair, but invaded my space when you grabbed my braid. Then you finally crossed the line when I mentioned the gold-medal figure skaters that was about to be shown live on TV, and all you could say was how you "love the skin-tight uniforms so you could see their nipples". So when I then moved to the opposite end of the bar to finish my meal in peace away from you, you harass the bar-server and try to insult me with your comment about "… she'll probably only give you a 3 dollar tip, she's such a b…". I then saw you eyeing the other two women servers' backsides up and down as they walked past you. Look, Harry, NO server nor customer should ever, EVER have to put up with that kind of obnoxious crap! I gave the bar-server $40 for a meal that probably totalled $15, and told her "you keep all the rest for a tip, because you girls should not have to put up with that!". My confession - I so wanted to kick you in the f-ing nuts, but feared my foot would get stuck in the rolls between your tree-trunk legs. EEEEWWW! I went out hoping for a nice meal and watch a bit of the Olympics at my favourite local eatery. Instead, I got subjected to YOU! The reason I stared you down, eye-to-eye directly and intently, was to show you that I will not put up with your obnoxious behaviour. Your face is thoroughly engraved in my memory - I dare you to cross me ever again! Creep.

I lost myself

Trying to please everyone else. Now I'm losing everyone while I'm finding myself. This quote is exactly what I am going through right now. I feel as though the world has hardened me and I rarely see the good side/ beauty in things these days. To top that I feel stuck in this job that I hate , yet everyone is telling me it's a good job and I should be thankful. I struggle and list the pros and cons every day that I work there and can no longer take it. I try my hardest to do my best but what's the point if I don't feel good about it? Why should I pretend to support a company that I don't believe in? I am about to make a major career change , so here's to me, for once. Not everyone else.

Thanks but...

I've realized that at least in an office setting, a person's gratitude lasts about as long as the "thanks" takes to leave their mouth but their complaints echo over and over again until you want to punch them and tell them to get some damn perspective.

Good and bad feminism - a girl's critique

Feminism is good when educated people discuss it because they know how to draw reasonable conclusions. However, uneducated feminists are occasionally wound up and let loose on the world without any idea of reasonable limits to feminism. They hurt feminism in the long run. I know one who acts morally superior. There is a difference between rightfully blaming feminism and an unwillingness to admit your own faults. If I did not live with her, I would keep a mile away from her at all times. She is mean and angry all the time. I just wish that she could get an education and realize that this is not fluff. There are logical underpinnings to feminism.

Is America doing okay?

I want less sensationalism from CNN, Fox, and Vice News. Instead, I want a dead-pan reporter presenting facts without political interpretation. I want good old fashioned reporting. Until then, who knows what is real anymore?

Three years ago

I arrived in Vancouver with some cash and a couple of bags. Now I rent a great one bedroom, paid off 22K in debt, and am almost done furnishing the place. It meant that I had to work weird hours and couldn't always go out. But the fact that I can now keep all of my paycheck and everything in my place is paid off is a great feeling.

I can't stand

my boss. She's always complaining about something and if I ever give my opinion or say anything that doesn't sound like I think her life is more difficult than everyone else's, she'll contradict me and just keep repeating her problems until I smile and agree with everything she says. Even when I do agree with her, I can't say anything that turns the conversation away from her and how problems at work affect her personally before she interrupts to talk about herself again, meanwhile I can't do my job because she won't stop monopolizing my time. It's exhausting working with her, I wish she'd stop being so self absorbed and treat me like a human with actual thoughts.

Told you so

My husband will get a cold or the flu and complain that he is sick, but never has any visible symptoms. I always think he’s just trying to get out of going into work or doing housework. He got sick last week and I didn’t believe him or have any sympathy for him. Well, I’ve now caught his cold - and damn it - I am so sick! I think I’ll have to take his word for it in the future when he says he’s sick.
