To the mom with the fedora at the sports store: We asked you to take your conversation with your teenager elsewhere and your reply was, "Obviously you don't have kids." Guess what? I don't need to have kids to see that you're a spoiled brat. The store was almost empty, you could have sat anywhere to whine and complain about your stupid first-world problems. We were asking you to be a decent human being. Fuck. I wish people like you didn't have kids. And for all the moms out there, that's not an appropriate thing to say to any woman, ever.

The reason there are so many rules surrounding the area known as the Public Gardens is to protect the grounds from those who may take advantage and misuse them through plain ignorance or malicious intent. These rules should not be viewed as a personal affront or bureaucratic boondoggle. To put it in the simplest terms, the Public Gardens is not a park—it is a garden for all to enjoy in perpetuity. Its designation literally means that the space is to be treated very differently than a park.

You should not walk on the grass unless you and your children wish to examine the flora, which is permitted. Interacting with the wild ducks is not a problem. It is unwise to feed them because they become accustomed to this behaviour and will not migrate. Its beauty and atmosphere is meant to be enjoyed, but it should not be treated as a mere picnic site to use at your convenience. If you had a pristine garden at your home that you cared deeply about, I doubt that you would take very kindly to complete strangers endlessly traipsing through it and mucking about at their pleasure.

I suggest that you take some time and look into the history of the Public Gardens. The story of its genesis and raison d'être may help change your negative attitude, and teach you to teach your children that the Public Gardens is not a playground but a Victorian oasis in the middle of a modern city. It should be cherished and respected, and its mandate defended by everyone who appreciates the privilege of entering its gates.

The world doesn't revolve around you, and neither should other passengers. Don't block the aisle with your baby—if I was a mean person I'd toss that thing on the street. The seats flip up not only for wheelchairs but for strollers, too. Get off your lazy ass and be aware of those around you. Tuck that monstrosity to the side and let others pass.

I was on the #10 going home late afternoon, and you boarded the bus with your one-year-old, who immediately began screaming bloody murder. Your immediate response was to quickly dial something up on your smart (?!) phone and hold it in front of his face for the entire duration of the trip. He sat slack-jawed and glazed-eyed, slumped in his stroller for the rest of the journey. From Barrington to the Bridge Terminal in Dartmouth, he literally did not blink once. Do you realise that you're messing with the delicate neuro-circuitry of your baby's developing brain? It's appalling that Gen Z kids are drugging their babies with smart phones like a narcotic, propped against their eyeballs, to comfort or silence them: trying to fill their gaping lack of parenting skills.

While I was stopped on the Bedford Highway waiting to make a turn, a driver who was texting RAMMED into the back of me at 60km an hour. I had a newborn, toddler and pre-teen in the car with me. What the hell is so important that you have to fucking answer a text while operating a vehicle? All of you reading this who text and drive: You are a fucking dumbass and STOP IT. We could have all been killed. SO STOP BEING A BIG HEAD WHO THINKS THEY ARE SUCH GREAT DRIVERS AND MULTITASKERS THAT IT'S OK TO DO THIS.

All because she had to have her shit phone up her ass. DON'T BE ONE OF THESE DUMBASSES.

That's all.

I witnessed your hissy fit in front of a busload of passengers. I can't believe you would risk your child's safety and wellbeing by insisting he/she stay in that plastic car. The driver simply asked you to seat the child with you. You were rude, condescending and frankly abusive. The supervisor and driver were willing to continue downtown. Instead, you proceeded on a profanity laced tirade in front of your own and other kids—a busload of passengers.

Then you had to get abusive with the driver when you were called out on your reprehensible behaviour. What do think would've happened when you ordered him to drive? I would've walked off too, rather than endure your abuse. Any wonder the police finally escorted you off!

Here's a tip: You don't run things and no one owes you anything, you entitled snot. You're frankly an unfit mother and you set one hell of a poor example for your kids. If you don't like rules, then find your own way there. Just don't inflict your bullshit posturing on everybody else!

To the ignorant and thoughtless group that sat behind my partner and I at Captain Marvel at the Dartmouth Crossing theatre: Thank you for your best efforts to ruin movie night for us. Between your kids kicking our seats, your singing along to the songs and ALL of you talking throughout the show, it took away from our enjoyment of the movie. Luckily, the movie itself was AWESOME! Yes, you paid to watch the movie, but so did we. So STFU and WATCH THE MOVIE! If you can't be considerate of the other people around you, STAY HOME and watch it on Netflix, ffs.

Parents of NS: When you send your kid on an overnight field trip, I hope you don't expect that their chaperones are actually looking after them in the hotel. As a hotel night clerk with many years of experience, I can tell you that nine times out of ten, the so-called "chaperones" spend the evening getting embarrassingly, staggering, teenager-grade shitfaced in the hotel bar, while the kids are left to their own devices in the rooms. Luckily teenagers themselves these days are a bunch of nerds, so we don't get a lot of noise complaints (at least until the bar closes and the rowdy, drunk-ass chaperones go back to their rooms) but you may want to consider asking in advance which if any of the chaperones is planning on staying sober and, you know, actually watching your damn kids for you. As it stands, the parents are by far the worst part of any school group. —Just Send The Kids By Themselves Next Time

To the young woman crossing Novalea and Duffus on April 3 afternoon with the 2-year-old toddler running at least 15 feet in front of her through the crosswalk: You, lady, are an idiot. That's how kids get run over. It's shocking to see such a lack of regard for the child's safety. —Nervous Onlooker

FOR THE LOVE OF SOME DEITY AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, please heed this message.

If your kid(s) is too sick to go to school, THEY HAVE TO STAY HOME. With the exception of going to a doctor office or a walk-in clinic or, heaven forbid, the ER or the IWK, then STAY THE HELL HOME. Don’t take your sick kid to the grocery store.  Or to Walmart, where they play with the toys. Don't take your sick kid to sit in the waiting room at _____, because then they play with my kid, who isn't sick right now. Don't take your sick kid out to eat at a restaurant. Don't take your sick kid to the indoor playground. Don't take your sick kid to the salon to get a hair cut.

If your kid is too sick to go to school, THEY HAVE TO STAY AT HOME, IN BED, UNTIL THEY GET BETTER. This is not fucking rocket science. TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL = YOUR KID STAYS HOME. I do not want to get sick.  I do not want to get my family sick. I do not want to miss time at work, lose any wages, or have a lower immune system, just because you are stupid. —Service Worker Who Doesn’t Want To Get Sick
