On March 6 I was at Pete's on Dresden Row,  and a prettttyyy cute/put-together guy stood behind me. It seems you got impatient and went to grab some chocolate near the checkout, and when you returned to the line you offered me some. :) You said you needed energy, LOL, hence the chocolate. I turned it down and said, “Ugh, actually, I was just thinking on how much I should go for a run this evening.” It's not often that a total stranger just says HEY, how's it going, WANT SOME OF MY CHOCOLATE. So, I hope I run into you again at Pete’s! My name is a character off of *Scooby-Doo* and starts with a D. — I Forget Your Name :(

Big thank you to Halifax Transit’s lost and found for their outstanding customer service, the driver on route four Wednesday morning and especially the good samaritan who returned my laptop. 10,000 thanks still isn't enough. — KJ

A big shout out to Dale and Aaron at the Lost and Found at the Metro Transit Bridge Terminal. I lost my wallet on one bus going to the bridge terminal from Dartmouth, and my cell phone on the bus going across the bridge to Halifax. I got the number for lost and found at Halifax Transit, so I called them and we established a great rapport. I left a voicemail with Dale, and when I called again, he asked me to be more specific about my phone since there was something showing up in their systems. He asked me to describe it to him, and I told him the brand name only appeared near the speaker. He asked if I could wait a while, as he had to have a look in his inventory again: lo and behold, my wallet, with all the money I had, and a lottery ticket AND my phone were at the lost and found! I had my phone scan my fingerprint and: voilà! Freaking A+++ for customer service guys and for getting these things back to me.

So people, when you lose your shit and it MIGHT be on the bus, don't panic. These guys are super busy! Let them do their job and locate the stuff and stop calling every day to find out if your things are there. It must be super stressful working there. So I didn't have my cell phone for a week: it was actually nice to be flying blind and almost incommunicado for six or seven days! Thanks to everyone you two at the Dartmouth Bridge Terminal, you guys rock!

Love is alive in Halifax! My car battery died at the casino. One guy stopped with his girlfriend, but couldn't get it going and my cables fried. Another guy also came over to help, but no luck. I headed to the casino's front desk to call a tow truck, and the female employee suggested asking a cab driver. Sure enough, one very friendly driver in car #091 came to the rescue without any thought at all. I offered him money and he said no, but I insisted. You guys make this city such a great place to live.

Oh, and I wasn't supposed to be at the casino so you saved my neck also. Thank you, and a very Merry Christmas.

Could the mustachioed fellow who has the morning shift at the Alderney Ferry booth be any more awesome? Always smiling, always kind—he is an amazing ambassador for Halifax Transit. Now, to take his amazingness over the top, he has constructed a festive, functional model of the ferries crossing the harbour. Your smiles and your costumes and your kind words are so appreciated, sir. Well done!

Just wanted to give a shoutout to Tim and Crystal from the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission. The other day, they were walking up to the guy who sells his poems on the corner of Portland and Wentworth Streets. Instead of being like some business people and asking him to move along or ignoring him altogether, Crystal went right up to him and said, "What have you got for me today?" He replied back that he was pretty sure she had already read the poem he was selling. But she and Tim stayed and chatted, and were just so kind and compassionate. It's really great to see how much love and positivity they add to the neighbourhood!

I first saw you a couple weeks ago, standing at the cash, very shy and very beautiful. I saw you again last night at your work, mentioning to me you were getting off work in 30 minutes. You were wearing a yellow rain coat inside and your adorable "my mobile" necklace/pouch hanging from your neck. We had a quick conversation as I was buying my water and beef jerky, and I left, also too shy to say anything more.

To the tiny espresso shop with the biggest heart: you are all the best. For real—the best. My daily morning (and sometimes afternoon) coffee is now a pivotal, non-negotiable part of my routine because of your smiles, jokes, warmth and kindness. A day without you is always sad, boring and painfully un-caffeinated.

You were driving us on the route #7 down Robie Street towards downtown at around 10:30 Sunday night, and you stopped at the bus stop in front of the Esso at Young and Robie. You then got up and walked towards the back of the bus, and politely woke up the guy to let him know that the grocery store he was looking for was just down the street! Our world needs more of you, thank you!

Major kudos and a big shout-out to the guys who handle lost and found at the Halifax Transit Bridge Terminal. Last Wednesday, I lost my wallet on one bus going to the Bridge Terminal from Dartmouth, and my cell phone on the bus going across the bridge to Halifax. I got the number for lost and found at Halifax Transit, so I called them and I spoke with Dale; we had a great rapport and the customer service experience was great! The bus drivers had all told me that lost and found opened at 8am. bit Dale explained that they didn't get the things back from buses until noon, so it was not a good idea to call before that. Makes sense to me.

I left a voicemail message with Dale yesterday, and today when we talked he asked me about my phone and asked me to describe it to him. I told him the brand name only appeared near the speaker. He asked if I could wait a while, as he had to have a look in his inventory again.

Lo and behold, my wallet, with all the money I had, $25, and a lottery ticket AND my phone were at the lost and found! Freaking A+++ for customer service, guys, and for getting these things back to me. It took a week for my cell and wallet to be located and brought back: who cares how long it took! I got them back!

So people, when you lose your stuff and it might be on the bus, don't panic. These guys are super-busy! I just explained the process. Let them do their job and locate the stuff and stop calling every day to find out if your things are there. It must be super-stressful working there. So I didn't have my cell phone for a week; the world didn't end and I didn't die because I couldn't access the internet. It was actually nice to be flying blind and almost incommunicado for six or seven days. Lol! Thanks to everyone who had anything to do with it at Halifax Transit!!! Aaron and Dale, you guys rock!
