Where’s the support?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 24, 2020 at 10:04 AM

Just a general bitch about the "friends" that one seems to lose when they quit drinking. I decided to quit this past year because I felt it was really killing my health, my bank account and my emotional well being. I was able to do it, completely cold turkey after 15 years of hard drinking, and was pretty proud of myself for that.

Whenever I told people that I had quit drinking, it felt as if they had written me off entirely. I didn't hear from them again. Furthermore, if I did ever meet up with them it would be “Oh come on let’s just go out for one drink, it won’t kill you" or “Would you be comfortable in a bar?” Like, there's more to life than obliterating yourself with alcohol, despite what alcohol companies wants you to think. Since excising these people from my life, I've been living a lonely, albeit somewhat happier life. Still happy for my decision. — Cheers Without Beers

Racial profiling

acist and dirty cops, power-hungry cops who use excessive force and arrest people for no reason, need to be stopped. I can't believe that poor woman was punched in the face in front of her children! I was pushed face-first toward the concrete by a cop before with extreme force, I almost had my teeth knocked out, and if I hadn't put my hands there to catch my fall… I too did nothing illegal. HRM needs to screen their officers better and start sensitivity training. Stop hiring these racists, criminals and hot heads to protect us. Go arrest some actual criminals and stop this excessive force toward women who have done nothing wrong! You should be ashamed of yourself. —I’ll Be At The Protest

LIbrary's noisy living room

 was always under the impression the "living room" on the fifth floor of the central library was meant to be reasonably quiet, yet every time I've been there it's been just as noisy as the rest of the incredibly noisy library. People speaking loudly on their phone, constant camera shutters from teams of unoriginal wannabe instagram influencers, people having conversations everyone can hear, etc. Is there seriously nowhere in the library with comfortable seating that you can expect a reasonable noise level? Just seems more than a bit ironic that a library is so inhospitable to people who are actually trying to read. — Detective Bookman

Students on transit

Posted By on Thu, Jan 16, 2020 at 10:37 AM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg

Dear Students: When you are on a crowded bus, look up from your phones, and when you see an older commuter on the bus standing, get up and offer them the seat! It is called being polite. It won't hurt you, and it might also make you feel good as the older person sits and you, with better balance, ride the next few stops. Also, a bit about bus-stop etiquette: the person who is at the stop first gets on first. If you get there after six people have already been standing around waiting for the bus, you are the seventh to get on, not the first because you moved the fastest or barged ahead. Again, it is called being polite! Try it, you might like it.  —Talkin' Transit

Vegan Apartments for Rent?! What next!?

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

storm-cloud-over-head.jpg
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

First-world coffee problems

Posted By on Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 1:15 PM

megaphone.jpg
I wish a certain popular Canadian coffee chain would buy a new toaster that actually toasts their doughy-ass bagels. I ask for mine to be toasted twice, and the thing is black and tastes burnt but is STILL doughy AF and not a bit of crispiness at all! I'm never buying your shitty-ass bagels again! I might as well eat a raw ball of dough. Also, could you stop putting little pinholes in your coffee lids please? What is the meaning of this? The drippage has completely ruined my new UGGS!

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?

Dear guys I work with

I'm tired of hearing your cat calls. Staring at my breasts while I'm talking = not cool. Whistle at me again and I'm going to turn violent. And if I had a dollar for every random guy who told me out of the blue that I'm his soulmate, I would be one wealthy woman. Why any of you think it's OK to send suggestive messages while drunk is beyond me, especially when you’re married. Men, let's get this straight: if a woman is nice, it doesn't mean she's hitting on you.

Nowhere to live

Frustrated with the rental situation in this town. You're limited to apartments meant for students to share, or overpriced, soulless condos. Everything in the middle is being used for Airbnbs and nothing is left for the people that live here. Patiently waiting for the city to step in and regulate this shit.

Insane pedestrian

To the asshole who jaywalked into the intersection on Dresden, so that I had to brake sharply to avoid them, and then SMACKED MY CAR as I drove through: a) the concrete barrier on the east side doesn't allow me to see the full intersection until I'm close to it, b) learn how to safely walk around in a city (including using crosswalks and looking before you just blindly walk into the road) before you get hit by a car or bus, c) yelling profanities and spitting in the face of someone is really, really juvenile (especially since that person stopped their car and didn't hit you) and d) grow some balls and take some responsibility for your own stupidity, rather than blame it on someone else.

Joy to the world, Uber has come

Posted By on Wed, Dec 18, 2019 at 11:50 PM

bitch-devil-computer.jpg
I would love to share my general joy with the good people of Halifax, and my ultra-special joyous delight with the good hearted, kind, nice, fair, decent, moral people of the city’s taxi commission. I would love to see their faces when Uber and Lyft are in the city, rendering the existence of their office of extortion obsolete. Just like their office, they will perish into the dark pages of history books, leaving all the pleasant memories that every driver dearly cherishes.

None of them had ever driven a taxi or a limousine, yet they know all about it from their office bible (The Holy T1000 City Bylaw), a book they hold dear to their heart and are willing to defend with their integrity and honour. Well, the heavy burden of of memorizing a 25-page bylaw is finally over, and the days of their bullying soon to be gone. No more gloating like acid-tripping peacocks, no more constant long trips from the water cooler to the coffee machine, no more walking to their houses with victory smiles, kissing their children and telling them that mommy and daddy got a paycheque for harming people.

Merry Christmas and let Uber and Lyft bless you. Yours truly,
—BMW 750Li

Backpack or plastic bags? The trouble with shopping with a backpack

Posted By on Tue, Dec 17, 2019 at 3:45 PM

storm-cloud-over-head.jpg
I have a small suggestion for retail stores about people shopping with a backpack. First of all my backstory: My physiotherapist has suggested I use a backpack instead of a purse, as I fell last winter twice and my back is still recovering. It's easier than a purse and doesn't put as much strain on my back. So please please stop following me around like I'm a shoplifter and I'm going to clean out the store. It is so obvious.

A lot of people use a backpack because they're on a bike or don't have a car, and it's easier to carry multiple things home from the store. If you must ask me to leave my bag at the counter to ease your mind while I shop, please do, but don't insult my intelligence by following me around on your walkie-talkie or calling to other stores that I'm coming in their direction. Geez, there's nothing more embarrassing then being treated like a criminal. I even did an experiment and didn't take my backpack shopping and there wasn't a peep. Please think before you assume from now on. Not everybody is dishonest. All you have to do is ask.

There really ought to be a law

Posted By on Thu, Dec 5, 2019 at 9:57 AM

finger-on-target.jpg
So this week a couple of guys from St. FX were found not guilty of sexual assault. The judge found that the three-way they had with an unnamed woman was by all accounts consensual (seems there were partygoers and others wandering into the bedroom from time to time who became witnesses). My Bitch is why does the law allow these guys' names and their "perp walk" photos to be published the moment they are simply accused. I notice that the female complainant still has her name and photo hidden, even after she loses the case. That system is reasonable for the woman, but hey, even if innocent the guys will have this hanging over them forever. Any reason they can't put a lid on the entire case until it is decided? WTF.

Not enough bread to buy bread

Posted By on Fri, Nov 8, 2019 at 9:26 AM

We have a serious bread problem in HRM's grocery stores, and I'm not talking about price fixing. I'm talking about your stale-ass dunce loaves! There's no excuse for the stores that have their own built-in bakery department to be selling old-ass bread. Most of the time it's sitting on the shelves still frozen from the freezer you just took it out of…all the moisture gets in and ruins the texture. The pita bread breaks all apart when you try to make a pita pocket—it's so dry tasting, like sawdust. The bagels feel like hockey pucks and the French bread loaves feel just like a dense, soggy sponge. And don't even get me started on the cheaper stores that don't have an in-house bakery. What garbage! Don't people know good bread anymore? Also, the prices are ridiculous! I saw a loaf of cheese bread (white bread with some cheddar grated over the top) for $6.99! Seven bucks for a loaf of bread? Someone needs their head examined.
