To the woman on a red car crossing at Fir & Broadway

Hey, I was walking my dog, we saw that the light was about to turn red and thus we waited for the pedestrian lights to turn on, however a woman on a red car decided not to even turn to check the crossing and straight up passed and blocked the crosswalk. She ended up blocking it as she couldn't move as the ppl on W 12th had green light. I passed behind your car and tapped your car (as I always do to people who do not respect the transit rules, which state that pedestrians have right of way even over cyclists etc, and most importantly, when marked), and pointed you to the pedestrian lights. You proceeded to show me the middle finger. I'm gonna tell you something, you better be more aware of what you do when driving your red mid tier hatchback. It is also my responsibility to be aware of what stupid drivers do, but do not think you are in the right. People die every day due to stupid drivers, and you had the chance to accept your mistake and say sorry or something, instead you showed your lack of education by showing your finger. Please don't come back to my neighborhood.

Heritor of Blame

Everyone deals with rejection. You're not special. You can choose to move forward with your life. Or stay here and demean someone who chose to move on with theirs. In the past she might of loved you. When you had her love you chose to reject her and put her down in the hopes she would feel insecure enough to be with you. Your pain over now being rejected doesn't entitle you to interfere with her happiness. It didn't work. It's your fault. You are the sole owner of the blame. Accept that and move on.

Lesbian/Gay sex?

I know a lesbian couple and a gay couple. One of the gay men had never had heterosexual sex so one of the lesbians agreed to help him learn what it was like. I'm not kidding, his partner told me about this. Why am I posting this as a confession? The notion awakened the voyeur in me I guess. I would have liked to see that encounter. Was she receptive or did they need lube? How did he get aroused if women never interested him? Did she help? Did it last long?

Choices

A long long time ago, I taught English in Asia. The group I hung out with were all in our 20s and all intent on gratifying ourselves with excess booze, going through multiple sleeping partners, traveling, late nights, etc. There was one guy named Wayne, an American from a disenfranchised group, and his main goal was to work for a few years there to save up enough money to buy a house. His goal sounded absolutely alien to us at the time, in our hedonistic immaturity. I’ve never forgotten him and his clear-sighted plans for his life, while I’ve seen friends, colleagues, acquaintances all struggle to get an affordable permanent roof over their heads. One of the party ppl returned to my city and I saw her back here earning minimum wage. In hindsight Wayne was the smart one shunning all the boozing and partying! I wonder how his life turned out when he made such gains so early.

Cell Phone Etiquette...Anyone? Anyone?

Can someone PLEASE explain to me why people use speaker phone to chat with mates in public?? I don’t care if your child had a big poop today, that your new mascara is “fab” or honey, don’t forget to get eggs on your way home. Don’t even get me started with FaceTime in public. Pfft. I think it’s rude and ridiculous the rest of society is forced to listen to your dribble. Use headphones or put the phone up to your ear for gawd sake!

Bad plan

My retirement plan is to hope that some family members or friends leave me money in their will. If not, I'll be working until I'm 100.

I give up

So I found a job and was so excited to be working again. The people at work seemed so nice and the job was interesting. But the problem comes in, they seem to be having trouble paying me. Stalling even, a bunch of Bla, bla , bla stupid excuses. The Owner seems to be doing quite well, " I'd say " and should be able to pay an employee. So why do I have to go looking for my pay, again. I did my hours, showed up on time, acted like I gave a rats ass. I was even nice and friendly to the customers. Why no pay yet? Giving you a bit more time to do whats right. You hear that? This is just a bunch of " Rigitony".

Most beautiful city in the world

Dear Vancouver, Wtf?! If it weren’t for the mountains and the ocean would anyone still live here? There is 0 culture, absolutely nothing going on. Everyone is addicted to something here, and I don’t blame them because it is a very slow, dark, uninspiring city. There are no creative outlets, and people are so consumed with status. The cost of living is FUCKED! All due to drugs and organized crime using the housing market to launder money. There is no sense of community, strangers don’t start conversations with one another, we don’t know our neighbours. The men here can’t drink at all without getting into fights. And then there’s the racism..... The food is pretty good though.

Bad Texters and "Busy" People who use dating apps

If you take 24-48 to respond to a text, from someone who you are actually interested in dating/meeting/seeing again, you suck. Honestly, you suck, you're shitty at communicating and you know it. Make all the excuses you want ("I'm a student... I work a lot... I'm busy, I'm going on a other dates") blah blah blah. How about this? If you don't have the time, space, energy, and desire to go on dates, meet people, get laid etc. - Do the rest of us a favour and stop using dating apps. You're wasting your own time and everyone else's, plus you're ruining the overall digital space we share by feeding into negative roles and behaviours that are so common to app users, online daters, and texters.

I Still Get A Laugh

When folks (mistakenly) attribute chocolate and ice cream to Laura Secord. Contrary to popular belief, she did not run a chocolate shop, but played a pivotal role in the War of 1812. Sometimes, I'll be tempted to say something ridiculous like "Oh yes, she spiked a batch of her gourmet chocolates to give American soldiers the runs so that they couldn't invade Canada!"
