Apologies for the sad tip

Posted By on Tue, Jul 16, 2019 at 7:38 AM

I've always tipped well for every service in Halifax because I know what it's like out here in the hospitality industry—but my hanger got the best of me at a certain pizza place on Saturday, where I angrily put in a $0 tip because my pickup order had been delayed for an hour due to a glitch in the online order. You didn't deserve that. I'll return for more 'za soon and, this time, leave and doubly good tip. —Hangry, now regretful, gal

Learn to love

Posted on Thu, Oct 15, 2015 at 4:00 AM

I understand why you couldn't continue to be with me. You had love for me when I didn't love myself. I numbed myself to not feel anything with alcohol and drugs. They were the only things in my life that shut off the voice in my head that tells me everything I am doing wrong and lets me know everything I am not. Drinking set up a wall between me and other people, so that they wouldn't see what I see in myself. As a result I forgot how to have fun when I wasn't drinking, how to make connections with people, how to feel deep emotional bonds, and ultimately lost a piece of myself in the process. I decided to get that piece back and make myself whole again. I have a serious problem with alcohol, and the idea of a life without it terrifies me, but I want to show the world what a whole, complete version of me looks like. Unless I love myself and feel comfortable in who I am without alcohol, there is no place for it in my life. Sometimes it doesn't take rock-bottom. Sometimes it just takes someone caring. Caring enough to not stand by and watch you destroy a part of yourself. If I can learn to love myself, maybe she can remember how to love me too. —Anonymous Alcoholic

Boating Fail

Posted on Thu, Jul 9, 2015 at 4:00 AM

I saw your team rowing out of sync, and as we passed I called out that you guys were doing great, and then I heard someone say (about my comment) "I don't think she meant it." You're right. I said it kind of mockingly. And while my team cheered you on, I realized with a jolt how mean my insincerity was. I feel so ashamed. I wish every day for more kindness and compassion in this world. I don't even know what came over me. Just the fact that everybody participating in this race are doing so for a good cause makes each team winners. I didn't mean to take the fun out of it. I hope you see this you can accept my apology. You guys ARE great! Good luck! —Foot in Mouth Paddler

Cringe Memories

Sorry I made fun of your shirts so much and may have rubbed up on you a bit more than I should have (I know I shouldn't have at all). I don't want to be petty and I'm sorry that I was. Seeing you is always a lottery feeling wise and that night happened to be a bust. I mean I guess now we can call it even? Until next time, —Kit
