  • Did you enjoy your dinner?

    To the three young punks that ran out on their bill (literally) about a month ago: Karma is a wonderful thing. You're lucky my co-worker didn't catch you. You didn't seem to be the type of people I normally serve. No I'm not judging you on your appearanc
  • Coast "best of" awards are a joke

    Rumour has it that local bands get all their friends to make up fake email address after fake email address in order to keep submitting their votes for that band. Now come on, how accurate is this poll anyway? It should be called Coast "how many fake e

    Can someone please explain to me how it makes sense to drive with your dog on your lap? Does that not just seem a LITTLE bit dangerous? It's up there with cellphones, eating, etc. But I think even worse ..
  • Spice Spice Baby

    listen, I am all about girl power, so don't get me wrong... but seriously, Spice World has to be one of the worst movies ever made. Really, are you trying to make me believe that British women actually act like that? Granted, the VHS was good for a wank

    I watch you close the front door as your child approaches RUSH HOUR traffic outside your house in DARTMOUTH.I look to see if the other drivers waiting in line see her approaching the road, head down. Obviously she meets with the kids across the street to
  • Oh, I must be a pig

    Incase some of you women out there haven't noticed, the english language is full of loopholes, and massive ambiguities of meaning. If I'm interacting with you in a date like setting and I mention my job as a requirement for communicating a story; you wou
  • Grossed Out at the Gala!!

    My sister and our partners decided we would go out for New Year's this year. Being from out of town we unknowingly booked VIP tickets for a gala at one of Halifax's big hotels. We soon realized that we may have made a mistake when we were the first peopl

    WTF is wrong with people. I just read two different stories in the last 24 hours about people neglecting their children, one woman left two one year old kids locked in a freezing car for hours and another left her 8 kids home alone for a month with no
  • Wake up People!

    What the hell is wrong with people around here? Why is it that almost every day, I hear about someone being hit in a fucking crosswalk?!? Pedestrians: LOOK before you step out into the street or in front of a car. Yes, you might have the right of w

  • Thanks for Nothing, Heritage Gas!

    Thanks to these twats, our downtown streets were torn up in the freezing cold (what a stupid time of year to do such a thing, given temperature changes and its effects), then hastily paved by a bunch of cretins, creating dozens of fucking potholes, crum

  • Nutwads who complain about The Coast's Politics

    This one is directed to the recent Bitch by the rightwinger who is complaining about the Coast's left-learning biases..Alright, you've got a point - the coast leans very much to the left. Hell, I'm leftwing and it bothers me some time. But if you've

  • Slippery Slope

    To the 4 young "men" who walked by me and my sister Monday Night outside the Italian Market on Doyle Street. We kindly asked for your assistance to push our car, which was stuck on a patch of ice. Instead of helping, we were rebuked with cries of "No w

  • The Palace Nightclub Eh?

    My friend got barred from the palace very recently apparently because of something said on facebook pretaining to the fact that its unjustified that the dome had to raise their drink prices and the palace didnt?? That is what the bouncer who asked my fri
  • Society of douchebags?

    Today, I was witness to one of the most completely inconsiderate acts of human douchebaggery that I have EVER seen. What can I do but sit back and question the very ethics and foundations that we, as parents and educators are instilling in our young peo
  • A bird can't fly unless it has both wings

    Will the Coast ever publish articles that are Right-wing? Will they ever publish articles that are in favor of economic interests and not social and environmental ones? Squeegee kids? Come on!I know your main demographic is the trendy nouveaux-hippy, b

  • Downtown grill girl

    It is obvious that you have a low opinion of the people you are serving if you don’t think they realize when you are speaking down to them through your not so subtle rude comments. Get over yourself, you are a waitress. We were nothing but polite to yo

  • A blow for some food

    I'm bitching on behalf of all hairstylists new to the industry. Hairstyling is a self-made buisness in which it takes about 3-5 years to even achieve full time work. When we start we get paid miniumum wage at part time hours. How the hell does the govern
  • Fuck you, smokers.

    I hate you. I wish you'd just give yourself cancer and die, instead of spreading your cancer to me. I cannot stand anywhere at the Dartmouth bus terminal without being surrounded by people lighting up. They do it around children, elderly, asthmatics.Yo
