Stop Being Shitty to Homeless People

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

carrying-money.jpg
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.

Stop means stop

I am sick and tired of all these fucks who think that the flashing light of the pedestrian signal is just a suggestion. It's not a fucking suggestion. It's a demand. Fucking stop means fucking stop!

The tale of the rat man and the stripper

Posted By on Thu, May 2, 2019 at 2:11 PM

OMG - What is wrong with people? On the bus today - both times the #1 - I saw a guy get on with his 'domesticated' rat - no cage, no bag, no leash just tucked up into his hoodie! Who the fuck does that? In retrospect I should have told the driver and had both the guy and his rat thrown off the bus but I didn't want to start a riot! And on then on the way back from Dartmouth another guy decided to change his clothes - did you steal them as another rider suggested? - right on the bus we were treated to your 'show' and dude, let me tell you that was no treat! So the moral of this tale? Please leave your vermin at home but if you must travel with it use a cage or carrier. Secondly if you feel the need to change clothes please wait to do it when you get to your destination. Thank you
- Not taking the #1 for the foreseeable future

A racist is a racist is a racist

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2019 at 3:33 PM

I'm continually shocked at the amount of racism targeted towards people of colour in Halifax's night scene. Being drunk does not place you at liberty to yell racist profanities at brown men (who are minding their own business) and sucker punch them in the face. What's next, are you going to punch them into a coma? Stab them? Kill them? For what? Because of your own insecurities or misplaced anger? What's funny is that these kinds of racists spew hatred towards brown men but fetishize their "exotic" women.

The last straw

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2019 at 1:26 PM

I am ready to move from Vancouver to Halifax (or anywhere Maritimes) tomorrow! I've had enough. Then final straw was this holiday season.

My mom died last July. This was my first Christmas alone, without family. I always thoguht I could count on my closest friends for support, but no. No one. No one from curling or Pride or work or any of my communities reached out. No one invited me to anything. No cards, no visits. I got one text and a Bill Murray patch from my "best friend." We are in our late-30s.....not 10 years old.

My work place hasn't even sent condolences.

I thought I should wait and give things time and let folks support me before making a decision. I've decided. It's time to move. I've hated the west coast for decades, and was only here for my mom.

I'm done. I'm actively going to look for work (in the health field) and hope to relocate ASAP and start a new life. There is nothing left for me here and I can't afford it anyway. I have no illusions things would be better there.....but I've been given a big "there is no place for you here" message. —YVRgoodbye

Armistice Day jerk

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2018 at 11:47 AM

While watching the Remembrance Day ceremonies I was not at all pleased to hear one of the military personnel being interviewed say "there are no atheists in foxholes." How disrespectful is that toward all the atheists currently serving? My heart seriously sunk to hear it! Just an awful, closed-minded thing to say!

The Hate U Give

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2018 at 12:35 PM

To the four older white ladies who not only talked through the movie The Hate U Give, but laughed during the final emotional climax: You suck. This is a movie about an (all too farmiliar) police shooting of an unarmed black teenager. Yes, the movie falls into some teen drama tropes, but the stressful scenes involving police are not meant for your laughter. This movie was clearly not made for you, but next time try to learn from the movie instead of being insensitive. It may be fiction, but the topic is no laughing matter.

You could have been a Good Samaritan, you know

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2018 at 2:49 PM

To the person who stole my wallet from the bus instead of handing it in the the driver: I hope you read this. Not only was that my grocery money and registration money for my son to play basketball this year, but what you don’t get after you tried to make a fancy purchase with my maxed-out credit card is that I am on disability. My bus pass, ID, MSI cards, bank card, credit card and my wallet need to be replaced which is inconvenient, stressful, time consuming, and costly—not to mention what you took and spent which I can’t possibly replace. I can’t imagine you would care, considering your actions, so I hope karma comes right back atcha ASAP.

Wait for people to cross on a red light

Posted By on Mon, Jul 16, 2018 at 11:47 AM

Drivers need to stop sneaking around the corner when the lights are all red and the walk sign is two seconds from turning one. WTF is so important that you don't want to wait and let someone who is trying to get across the street cross? Just because the walk sign isn't yet on is no excuse for trying to cheat the intersection. The street you are turning onto is RED not green. Be considerate an not an asshole.

When Transit just accepts racism

Posted By on Mon, Jun 18, 2018 at 10:41 AM

So I was taking the bus home from work just the other day, a guy got on the bus. And you know when you know someone is gonna cause trouble? I knew. The entire ride he was loud, and brash, but so it goes. Until two ladies, who I believe were of south Asian heritage, hopped on the bus and sat across from him. And at that point, I knew. My headphones came off, and as expected, racial slurs left his mouth. I won't repeat them, because it's not necessary. 

I wish more than anything that I had the guts to stand up to this guy, but as a small, young female, I knew it could turn violent quickly, and that's not something that I am at all equipped for.  This all happened just behind the driver, who did absolutely nothing. At all. Thankfully, the guy got off at the next stop because he wanted away from the two women. As another passenger was getting off, he said something that I couldn't work out, about the guy. To which the driver responded “Yeah, well we're not supposed to let him on anyway but…” No. Do your job. Keep your passengers safe. —H

I'm trying, for fuck's sakes!

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2018 at 4:08 PM

Can someone explain to me why in the fuck fat people get so much goddamn flak from everyone at the gym? YES I know, I am a fat person (and, according to you dicks, don't deserve tolerance or respect in this world), but I'm already at the fucking gym, what more do you want? Everybody seems to be so concerned about my (and every other fat person's) well-being and impact on the health-care system (WTF, BTW), constantly telling us to “just get off the couch,” but then when we do that, you're still an asshole about it Super! 

I know how much you all hate fat people—I hear it every goddamn day.  But then I try to do something good and go to the gym and all I get is those idiotic point-and-laugh bros or the super original “don't break the machine…ahaha…” What is your fucking goal here? Cause if you're trying to rid the world of fat people, you're doing a horrible job.

I've given up on hoping that the world will accept fat people as regular humans, but PLEASE, at least let us try to do something good for our bodies, and stop being such asshats, people. —Angry Fat Person Trying To Be A (Less) Angry Thin Person

I smile and make small talk-that does not mean I want to go out with you, you big-headed ass.

Where have all the decent people gone?

Posted By on Fri, Mar 23, 2018 at 9:07 AM

I have grown to STRONGLY dislike people. Fortunately for me, I am in the hospitality industry.  I dream of moments where I can unleash my true feelings of, "You are an asshole!"

Every day I encounter self entitled, manipulative, deceptive, arrogant, and/or egotistical assholes . Whatever happened to the golden rule "Do unto others as they would have done on to you." Let's bring that one back from the dead. —Golden Girl

Is it still for sale?

Posted By on Mon, Mar 19, 2018 at 10:58 AM

Why do people ask “is it still for sale?” but then never respond when you say “yes, it’s still for sale.” And when some do respond, they offer $10 for $100 item even though $100 is a good price for said item. If I am willing to sell it for $10 why bother listing it for  $100? And of course the “PS can you deliver from New Glasgow to Antigonish for free?” If you want free shipping go to Amazon.

If you’re going to low-ball someone make the offer in your first email don't bother asking if it’s still for sale just make the offer, don't ask to have it delivered unless you  are willing to pay for that service.  And FFS don't hide behind a spoofed email that Kijiji uses and ask for someone's home address.  Yep I am selling a XYX but here is my home address to someone you have a near impossible chance of tracking after it’s been stolen.

I have gotten some good deals online because I always leave my name and phone number for the seller, If I am busy I usually leave a time frame for a call back. IF I make an low offer I do it in person CASH in hand that shows I am serious.  I never ask for a person’s home address unless  I ready to go. And when I set a time to see a item I show up at that set time. —No It’s Not For Sale To You
