Responsible dog ownership

Posted By on Fri, Jan 17, 2020 at 9:52 AM

Dear neighbour on Fuller Terrace: It's snowing and your dog would like to come in. He has been out there barking for over 30 minutes. I am a block away and I hear him begging to come in out of the cold and wet. You do this every day. Every day you ignore your poor dog. I have had enough. Be responsible or I will call the SPCA.

Vegan Apartments for Rent?! What next!?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2020 at 1:45 PM

I just saw an apartment listing for a vegan apartment for rent. I thought it was bad telling people to smoke and not have pets, now these landlords are trying to control what you eat! Crazy shit going on in the HRM. No wonder nobody can find a place to live with lunacy like this going on. We need to enforce laws preventing landlords from acting like tyrants. This is beyond ridiculous! —Meat Eater Apartment Seeker

Uncomfortably numb

Posted By on Thu, Nov 28, 2019 at 2:25 PM

Hey, neighbour (or visitor): The loud and annoying alarm on your precious vehicle, parked in downtown Dartmouth somewhere near the King’s Wharf area, started blasting at various intervals shortly after 6pm on Sunday and continued at least through 6am Monday. This is a district in which shift workers, health-care staffers, students, the elderly and people managing illnesses live. They could use a good night’s sleep. Disarm your alarm, you clueless or inconsiderate twit.

Is sleep no longer important?

Posted By on Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 3:52 PM

Since I'm sleep-deprived from my neighbour's obnoxious children, I have time to submit this bullshit. I understand that children need to play, and some hyperactive children need to be more annoying when they play. However, just because it is the middle of the day does not mean that everyone is awake. You 9-5ers like to assume that the rest of the world is like you and that "everybody sleeps during the night and is awake during the day." How conceited can you be to forget that some people need to work during the night to provide services that—surprise, surprise—don't go to sleep when you do?

Do you think my sleep isn't of value because I work backshift? Maybe you do, but your kids sure don't, and by letting your kids (which are incredibly louder than the average children) make their annoying and menacing laughing (at 12pm, which is still really early), you are teaching them to disregard other people. It's bad enough that I need to drink in order to sleep during the day, I don't also need a wedge in my sleeping schedule, for what little sleep I get is my precious escape from this miserable existence.

Posters down

Posted By on Sat, Jul 27, 2019 at 9:25 AM

Back at the beginning of June, a local community group had a big yard sale. Many posters were stapled to many hydro poles across the north end. Today plenty of those posters remain, with a number ripped off and thrown to the sidewalk and streets. It would be nice if the sale organizers could organize a take down poster event…as should other people who plaster poles with their yard sale posters, etc.

Barbecue bigot

Posted By on Fri, Jul 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM

To the fat-ass  who went out of his way to interrupt my wife and her friends while they were conversing amongst themselves in their native language to tell them that they should speak in English, here’s what you should do: Mind your own fucking business.  I bet you felt like a real big shot harassing three Filipino ladies who were just trying to enjoy an outdoor event. Are you such a fragile failure of a human being that the thought of someone from a different cultural background demands that you harass them for it?

My wife was nicer than I would have been and somehow humoured your bullshit, even though she knew what you were saying was wrong. 

Oh, your grandfather was responsible for immigrants being here (whatever THAT means)? So fucking what? What right would that give YOU to tell anyone what they can and can’t say to each other, or in what language they do it?  In what language do you need to be told that we have freedom of expression in this country before that sinks in, moron?  Was your grandfather the one of driving people from their homes in the first place?  Is that what you meant? Well, your sad existence certainly attests to that possibility. 

My wife and her friends put it behind them and I’ve tried to do the same, but days later this still gnaws at me.  I want to believe that we are better than this and that cowards like you are a shrinking minority.  I want to be able to ignore this as the ranting of some asshole, but I can’t because saying nothing just emboldens dipshits like you.  Silence is complicity.  I was born and raised here and I will not be complicit in letting a limp-dick piece of shit like you be the face of my home.

Stop Being Shitty to Homeless People

Posted By on Mon, Jun 17, 2019 at 10:03 AM

I started writing this long rant debunking every single point that people make about why it’s bad to give money to homeless people, and I just got really fucking sad that I felt it was necessary.

The other day I gave a $10 bill to a guy who panhandles downtown near the ferry terminal. I don’t think he is trying to scam anyone. I’ve been targeted by scammers on the street before, and usually they walk around telling everyone a really long story about a family emergency that they need to buy a bus ticket out of town for. They do not typically sit down with a Tim’s cup and a cardboard sign hoping people will give them some change.

What’s the real reason why you are so uncomfortable with seeing this sort of poverty? Is it because deep down you know that it doesn’t need to exist in a country like Canada? Is it because you know that you’re one bad injury or serious illness away from being housing insecure yourself? The people who are profiting off of the sales of the Tim’s cups that so many homeless people use to collect change have been allowed (for some reason) to hoard more wealth than they and their children and their children’s children will ever be able to spend in their lifetimes. And here we are squabbling amongst ourselves, being shitty to people who do not have homes or enough food to eat. Shame on us.

This Stompin' Tom MoFo

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2018 at 4:17 PM

Hey neighbour, do you wear cement shoes on your feet as you stomp up and down the stairwell and hallway at all hours of the night? There is no need to stomp your feet so loud everywhere you walk inside the building—no need for it at all! Walk softly, asshole! The pounding wakes me up out of a dead sleep!

Hey, Batman

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2018 at 4:16 PM

Why is it every time I turn on my vibrator, this one nosy neighbour comes out of his apartment and starts walking up and down the hallway? Mind your business, asshole. Could you give a bitch some privacy? No, I'm not going to open the door someday and invite you in. Get back inside your batcave and fuck off already.

To the curb

Posted By on Tue, Sep 18, 2018 at 12:04 PM

Did you check Kijiji before writing the eviction notice? Thank you for waiting until all the students snatched up every livable unit in our price range. We were long-term tenants who paid your mortgage. Thanks for everything.

People live downtown

Posted By on Tue, Sep 11, 2018 at 12:12 PM

Why must you sing at the top of your lungs at 3:30am? I know the acoustics are great on an empty downtown street, but your signing is not. It’s a school night. Go to bed.

Get your goddam animals under control

Posted By on Mon, Aug 20, 2018 at 4:17 PM

Your damn dog escaped and ran amok through my backyard where I was weeding this morning, scaring the hell out of me, and I yelled at you to remove him 'cos you were breaking the law. Yet again animal owners need to be reminded that your animal is NOT entitled to do what it wants and your animal running loose is illegal (by-law A-700). To you, he's an adorable "member of the family." To me, he's an animal with teeth and claws that can inflict injury and property damage.
And teach your cats to crap in an effing litter box and NOT in my garden beds that I have slaved over! I'm sick of the shit, stink, and flies. It shows such disrespect and contempt for neighbours who live quietly and don't bother anyone. There needs to be a public awareness campaign by HRM so animal owners can't claim ignorance of by-law A-700. Moreover, the onus of law enforcement should not be on ordinary citizens. "Complaint-driven," my arse! What are we paying you salaried by-law officers and cops for?

Pear Shaped Pisser

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2018 at 11:26 AM

You need to count yourself lucky I was hitting the bong for bed when you sauntered up to my yard and took a piss, even with me yelling at you, be it you had headphones on or were ignorant and drunk enough to simply ignore me.

Given there are public washrooms all around this area, you can go fuck yourself, and next time I'm not going to be so passive.

Get Ready! Students are returning!

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 at 11:34 AM

University students are returning to town! Most have no life skills, so taking the bus can be complicated. You'll find them stuck in the aisle, stuck by the exit door, only concerned with the next text on their smartphone, oblivious to everyone else. Don't talk at them too loudly—they are easily dumbfounded. I remember those days.
And, transit is going to change the bus routes—but they have already changed the signs, removing routes there are going to be discontinued, and added the new route numbers for Aug 20th changes! Good luck finding you route number to contact departure times: You need that number to get the next bus time. Avoid routes 42, 18 and 17 as these are the university routes. What kind intelligence do these students possess? Get your shit together before you inflict yourself on the rest of us.

Deliver to the right place!

Posted By on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 at 11:28 AM

Twice in the last two weeks, I had mail delivered to me that was for someone else on my street. Please double check the address. I'm a decent neighbour and I delivered them myself but not everyone is. Last year I didn't receive my package because you took it up the street. Now I am doing what should be your job. Get yourself a little pocket magnifying glass if needed and please double check the street number.
