Rotten tomatoes to people who defend pitbulls and blame the owners for their aggression. This breed is bred to fight and kill. It's in their nature. Let's encourage the ban of these dogs and encourage ownership of gentle breeds. Shame on families with young children who choose this breed when there are so many choices of breeds. Where's your common sense?
Beautiful roses to the young couple in front of me at the White Rock Pricemart checkout on June 9. They paid for my cake without my knowledge and left the store unthanked. It was a real random act of kindness to a senior from two wonderful people.
Tomatoes to the jerk who dumped a puppy in a rubbermaid container in front of my house at 1 a.m. on Saturday with the sign that read "save me from the coyotes." I gave this pup a good home but I'd like to feed you to the coyotes.
A whole world full of fresh red roses to the kind lady who helped me find my new doctor's office at Scott Road and 88th. She got on her smart phone and kept at it until she located it and then took me there. What a kind, caring person.
Rotten tomatoes to the people who want to keep remembering the Stanley Cup riot that happened last year. People - it's to forget, not to remember! Move on with your lives!
Pick-up trucks full of rotten tomatoes to the auto market for parking cars for sale on the grass that is maintained by taxpayers. And rotten tomatoes to Surrey bylaw officers for failing to follow up on this.
A soccer field full of rotten tomatoes to the soccer spectators at Cloverdale Athletic Park who congregate on the paths in the park making it difficult for walkers, bikers and parents with strollers to get by. Move to the grass and wear your rubber boots if you are afraid of geting your feet wet. Also, quit littering the park with your empty coffee cups and doughnut boxes.
A block-long pile of rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey for making the south side of Fraser Highway from 140th Street to 96th Avenue a noparking area, thus removing the only free parking option for patients of the Jim Pattison Outpatient Clinic and Care Centre. We are now stuck with paying Fraser Health's exhorbitant parking rates. I'm sure they are grateful for the extra revenue.
