I love these bitches about how ,"my job sucks more then the bus drivers job so they shouldn't be bitching and whining."
Good call people. Instead of trying to fix your job, you want everyone to have a really shitty job. How does that make sense?
I can't believe that the city is holding us hostage because they refuse to organise their scheduling problems. Clearly, the fault is in the management of the scheduling and not the scheduling itself.
The whole transit system here is managed poorly. Buses have to travel routes that are too long, meandering all over the city. Routes are either packed, or completely empty. Streets are either serviced by dozens of buses, or none at all. Buses are scheduled every 15 minutes and then suddenly are scheduled to arrive every hour. And why aren't there smaller buses for less travelled routes?
Why should bus drivers be responsible for the actions of a clearly incompetent management team? How else are they going to get management to get their s%@t together, but with a strike.
Those of you who lost your jobs due to the transit strike, I wish you better working conditions too. An employer who fires someone because of uncontrollable circumstances is an bad employer.
Instead of bitching about how much postal workers are making, why not organise? If postal workers make less it does not help everyone else make more, but there are many companies who could afford a better wage should they be given some incentive to pay for it.
Dog owners should petition to allow landlords to take a separate damage deposit for pets. Then it wouldn't be such a gamble.
I would rent to dog owners if I could charge a pet deposit.
Certainly not by pissing about on the computer all day.
I would like to see the routes in the city re-vamped. There are a few places that have too much coverage and some with not enough. This is because single routes are too long. If the routes were shorter then you may have to transfer more often, but there would be more buses available for each of these short routes. Your initial wait, and wait while transferring would not be as long. I was thinking about this while trying to catch the #7 up to the NSCC Leeds Street campus. Long routes like the #7's also give it endless opportunities to get held up in traffic. It is always running at least 15 minutes late.
I have filled out the survey at www.wedontgivetwoshits.com and expect them to get right on that.

My last meal here was brunch March 25, 2012. We came early so we didn't have to wait, but I have and would wait for a table here. One of the only consistent restaurants in Halifax, where I've eaten, in terms of food and service. I have never been disappointed by my meal and the servers are knowledgable with regard to the menu. I have ordered take out from here and it has been packaged properly and arrived hot with the appropriate condiments and cutlery. The coffee is fresh and everything is clean and organised. Thanks for being so reliable!
