  • Hospital Timmy's workers make huge $

  • Casino Venue

    I was at the last Songwriter's Circle. There was a couple close to the stage who talked all through the show, they were loud and obnoxious. They were obviously drunk. It is an acoustic show. Why are there no ushers or someone to tell these people to be q
  • Public Piss-off

  • Bitching about the Bitch

    I am really upset at the fact that this bitch section has gone down the drain since it has become a fourm (so to speak). I think the Coast should look into potentially getting some Mod's to take care of Fourm Trolls *Does anyone else feel the same a

    Have you ever gone into subway to order a 6 inch sub and watch the 'sandwich artist' cut the bun in half?? 90% of the time these idiots cut you a sub thats about 3-4 inches long. When they cut the bun they look at each piece for a few seconds to determi

  • This morning..

    on my bus commute into work, I counted 56 Tim Horton's coffee cups on the side of the road. Mind you, this was my count on only ONE side of the road, from the Dartmouth Sportsplex to Burnside. Fifty-fucking-six! Am I the only one who thinks this is crazy
  • Ignorant people

  • The new definition of "late"

    After three days of being late for work, I decided to call Metro Transit and find out if perhaps my bus route had been changed. I was then informed that if a bus is only 20 minutes behind it is not thought of as "late". Now this makes me wonder.. When th
