Housing runaround

Posted By on Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 9:43 AM

megaphone.jpg

I applied for housing back in the summer, and have just now been contacted and told that I'm being added to a waiting list. I thought I’d been placed on the waitlist long ago, but no. Apparently it takes six months just to be added to the damn waiting list. What has my application been doing for six months??? Sitting on someone's desk, collecting dust? Then my landlord tells me that my power bill has to be completely paid off to be accepted, and my cat must be fixed. Where the hell am I supposed to come up with all this extra money to pay hundreds for a procedure I don't want my cat to have to go through anyway? She's only a kitten, and I would rather wait to have to get her fixed when she's older. This is unfair to expect of low-income people. Landlords need to stop telling people how to live. Also, all the best locations with housing are designated for seniors and for families. Single people get the shittiest buildings in the worst areas with gunshots and drugs. This is age discrimination against young, single people. Metro Housing is run by a bunch of morons who don't know what the fuck they're doing. How are people supposed to survive in this town? It's pretty bad when a 40-year-old person has to move into a single room, with a single bed, shacked up with five college students in one apartment. When are the municipal politicians that we voted into office going to do something about this serious issue in HRM?

Tastes like chicken

Posted By on Thu, Nov 7, 2019 at 2:16 PM

Fish odor syndrome is real and common. I'm so sick of the spread of misinformation out there. Everyone seems to think the fishy smell means bacterial vaginosis. Very rarely is that the case. If you smell like fish, it means you probably recently ate fish! I spoke with my girlfriends about this and they agree it happens to them, too. When you eat fish or seafood, it can take up to 72 hours for it to get out of your system.

So ladies, don't let uneducated idiots make you feel like there's something wrong with you. If you eat a whole pot of seafood chowder, you better cancel all your dates for a week. It's called science. Quit callin' women dirty and educate yourself. For your information, the smell comes back 10 minutes after a shower. There is no infection, itch or discharge. So shut up and plug your nose!

In response to "Just A Person Trying To Enjoy My City"

Posted By on Wed, Oct 16, 2019 at 3:53 PM

finger-on-target.jpg
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.

Can't even hear my own music!

Posted By on Wed, Oct 2, 2019 at 9:45 AM

I wanted to take a moment out of my busy schedule to lambast the food truck that has been acoustically assaulting me these past few weeks. All the food trucks I have encountered around the HRM are for the most part nice and quiet, yet you folks feel the need to drag around a small but boisterous power generator. Clearly this is not a common standard among the fleet of mobile gourmands that grace our streets and parking lots. I can’t imagine anyone patronizing you without the use of a megaphone to place their order or, at the very least, cue cards. Take a page from the book of the food truck masters who have been around since the 1970s and silence that little generator once and for all!

Shitty mental health system

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 9:02 AM

bitch-fork-pill.jpg
Most of the medications they've given me don’t work, and most of their other treatments like CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) don’t work either, and I think that's mostly because I was misdiagnosed. All that most of the medications do to me is make me stupid or sedate me—other than that, no benefits. The doctors even agree with me, but then continue giving me the meds that don’t do anything. It makes no sense. They refuse to reassess my diagnosis. To make matters worse, pretty much all of them refuse to taper me off the medications I don’t want to take, so I get horrible withdrawals. Any kind of problems with my mental health that I ask for help for, they refuse to deal with. Their OTs or whatever they're called mostly fixate on my diagnosis and anything about anxiety/social skills problems go in one ear and out the other it seems.

Trees: you CAN have too much of a good thing

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2019 at 3:34 PM

finger-on-target.jpg
A big thank you to the guys in khaki from Gagetown, NB who arrived Sunday afternoon to cut my fallen tree down to size, done in 10 minutes, and neatly stacked curbside all ready for the HRM chipper. BUT I couldn't help wondering what all this Hurricane Dorian clean-up is costing the taxpayer, much of which could be prevented if the municipality seriously rethought its tree-planting policy: On my walks over the weekend, I noticed that almost all of the fallen trees had very shallow roots; our urban environment of concrete and asphalt makes it impossible for trees to send down deep roots. My particular young tree had been planted right into the wires extending from my roof corner and right up against my underground water main. Did we learn nothing from Hurricane Juan? HRM must stop planting trees that grow to be 100 feet high: I suggest that HRM plant trees native to NS that will grow to be no more than 15-to-20 feet high. Everyone will still get their summer shade and carbon-cleaning, but they will no longer be a hazard to people's homes and overhead wires. There will also be a LOT fewer leaves in the fall clogging up our stormwater catch basins, which is a major cause of flooding.

Unfashionable hipster hoes

I keep seeing chicks these days that look so unattractive, who clearly do the most when it comes to fashion trends. However, they would probably look a hell of a lot prettier if they actually did nothing. Like for instance, I saw this chick that would probably look pretty cute, IF she hadn't shaved off the sides of her head and put on these wacky square eyeglass frames with the bar across the top of the lenses (are they even prescription)? A lot of chicks are wearing those weird mom jeans rolled up halfway up their calves, clothes from the ’80s, blue lipstick and all kinds of craziness. Gurls be lookin tore up from the floor up! You are never going to meet a man looking like that. That's OK, I'll take all the men for myself, you keep fuglying yourself up with these weird-ass trends.

Why the FUCK does it take so damn long to get a PayPal into my account? It's 2019. We have the technology to put a man on the moon but we can't get a bank transfer to happen instantly? For fuck's sake! Banks are so annoying, I should just keep my money under my bed in a shoebox or something.

Don't yeet the lanes

Posted By on Fri, Aug 23, 2019 at 9:36 AM

Never did I think I would be a certified Halifax Angry Bike Person complaining to The Coast, but here I am. To whoever thought it would be good idea to extend the bus stop sidewalk four feet into the street on South Park Street, I sincerely wish you had not suggested this. Not only did the city yeet the bike lanes away, it now makes it dangerous to ride a bike because you have to avoid the sidewalk that pops out into the street. Once again, Halifax has robbed bikers of beloved bike lanes.

Drivers

Posted By on Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 9:20 AM

OK, I didn't think I would have to do this or submit anything like this to The Coast, but I have to. It's the way people drive. Either they drive too slow, or they drive too fast for the conditions and are running stop signs.

I'm a professional driver who drives for a living, and the stuff happening every day on our roads is unbelievable. I've seen people cutting people off when they turned right in the middle of the highway! And don't get me started on running red lights. For the love of god, people, there's a Driver's Handbook: please read it.

Texting, yeah that's part of it, but when you're supposed to be doing a hundred on the Circ and somebody's doing 75, something's wrong. People get frustrated when people sit in the left-hand lane, under the speed limit, thinking, "This is OK, it's a 100-series highway, I can do what I want."

For all that is holy, please learn to drive. I think to the left of your steering wheel is a turn signal; it works, so you should use it. And at night turn your headlights on cuz nobody can see you with your daytime running lights on and you have no back lights.

Multi-level marketing

Posted By on Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 8:30 AM

People fall into two categories when it comes to multi level marketing: They either recognize that it's a bullshit industry, or they've invested thousands in a company and are not making the money they thought they would make. Who is buying into this?—Perplexed

That's what you have proven to yourself you dumb-ass alcoholic! GO TO THE FUCKEN BARS YOU DRUNK!

Finally folks are back on the Common in force, enacting their right to chill and not be messed with. It's a special preserve that no rich developer can buy, no bank can rename in their glory and no advertising will be seen. It's great and for the most part people do a pretty good job sharing it respectfully.

What would be disrespectful? Any of the aforementioned endeavours to make capital gain, for sure. Blasting your own music without asking everybody in the city first whether they want to hear it? Definitely. Why then do radio stations get the privilege above all other businesses to advertise themselves with speakers on top of trucks in the guise of a tasteless block party with no guests? Trucks on the Common?! Top 40? It's not fair to subject others to what you think they want to hear.

The Oval should respect this as well, but instead as people lay reading books and children try roller skating, churlish radio hosts talk about the gnarliest place to get laid in the world and emit shrill compressed cackles over each other. The best thing about the radio is that you don't have to listen to it if you don't want to. The best thing about the Commons is that no one is allowed to blatantly advertise in your face. Radio station promoters go home!
