  • Just tie yourself a noose already.

    You probably don't read the coast. Given the way you present yourself in public, i'd have a hard time believing that you even have the attention span/brain power it requires to read at all. This morning, myself and several other people stood in the sport
  • tap, tap, tapping

    Hey guy sitting across from me doing the crossword while listening to your iPod. Nobody wants to hear the incessant tapping of your pen as you ponder five across. This is a cafe, people come here to study and relax, perhaps engage in quiet conversation.
  • Sure sign of Spring...

    Sigh, the end of winter. The snow is beginning to melt (except for the freezing rain part). Grass will soon be struggling to reach the sun. Or at least it would if it weren't for ALL THE FUCKING 'ROLL UP THE RIM' COFFEE CUPS LITTERED ALL OVER THE FUCKING

    What is up with New Brunswick drivers? They are honestly some of the worst drivers I have ever seen!Like most people who will be reading this, I live in Halifax. So why is it that almost every time I nearly get run over in a marked crosswalk, see a c
  • Obesity - even though I know we're all sick of it...

    Ok, I know this may be an unpopular thread given the back and forth regarding obesity on other threads, but I'm so mad I have to vent. My grandmother is 84 years old, has terrible osteoporosis, and is in dire need of a hip replacement. But the waiting
  • Night nurses from hell

    I work as a housekeeper for Capital Health. I am sick and tired of nurses looking down on us because we are “housekeepers,” worthless, invisible, except when we’re needed to assist one of you evil trolls. Some of us are in SCHOOL, working at this crap-as

  • how big is reallllllly big? size 10 , 3 inch?

    Can't help to notice that the most response are about OP and what people wear.Are you gals and guys so obsessed with size? If so, here's one for your pleasure. Why does it have to be 12 inch to satisfy your desire. 3 inches is too small, 7 inches is goo
  • Don't like what someone looks like then don't look

    I'm sick of all the fucking bitches that bitch about someones, weight, their nose booger, their hair, their eyes, their crocs, their pj pants etc. If you don't fucking like what that person has on or looks like then don't fucking look! We are all made d
  • Atlantic Superhypocrite

    If the superstore really cared about the environment, they'd start using closed-door refrigerators. The power that is wasted to operate an open refrigerator is astronomical compared to the closed type. So, stop going on about your "green bags" and star
  • Dear Blue Bag Pirates

    I see you trolling my neighborhood at 6 AM, your stolen grocery carts laden with envirobooty. And while I used to applaude your industriousness, I'll be fucked in the ear with a pointy stick before you get any more of my recyclables. It's not that I mi
  • Q = 1 'ol bore

    I remember now why I bailed on the local rock station. My painful reminder came today when I changed over to the former self proclaimed "Rock of the Atlantic". To enjoy a few afternoon tunes at work. Sadly, I can not access internet radio here. I u
  • Greed Bag!

    Ok Barrington Superstore, we get it. You're putting on some good PR by replacing plastic bags with the reusable "green bags". Sounds great! But where the hell do you get off charging people a dollar for this? If you really gave a damn about the environme
  • 7 Minutes

    To the EFFING company I am leaving soon: I think it might be a human rights issue that you have decided not to pay us for the time we have to use the bathroom. I know that some people abused the 7 minute grace time, but now we feel like we are going to b
  • The Last Taboo

    I would like to officially ask the women of this world to stop vilifying me for being attracted woman who are thin/athletic. I know women ( and Men ) come in all shapes and sizes. I know for every body shape a woman has there are tons of guys out there

  • Superstore enviro-whore

    Good job Superstore!You've taken the "green" fad and capitalized on it.I would not have a problem if you supplanted plastic bags with cloth ones, or if you sold the cloth ones at cost, but it is clear you are making a profit from the moral panic of g

    Dear douchebag who works at a certain CD store on Barrington (not the one beside Pogue Fado):I was in your store last night looking to buy some local music to support our wonderful local music scene. Not only did you respond to my request for informati

  • an-nun-ci-ate

    I do not know if this is somewhat of a bothersome issue with others, or some sort of local pride, however it just bugs the fuck out of me. I am not Nova Scotian, my husband is, and we moved here some six months ago. I work in retail and have to listen to

  • Get some damn sense!

    To my neighbours with the black lab: I hope that dog eats your face off someday. All you fucking do is put the poor dog outside (at night, mid day and even morning). If you have no room for a big dog GIVE IT THE FUCK AWAY! I wish that someone would put y
  • Watch out for buses

    So with all the talk about how dangerous it is to drive while talking on a cell phone, what the hell is my Metro Transit bus driver doing on his phone? The entire time from Penhorn Mall to Barrington he was chatting away on his cell phone. Not only was h
  • rat bastard.

    Being a tattle tale in your mid 40s is really quite something. Especially when you tell on someone that is one of your ONLY friends left at work. I even bought you a little something when you were gonna be away for a while. Boy, was I a sucker. Everyone
  • A shitty situation

    On Thursday, August 17, 2006, I was shopping in a grocery store, in the bakery department, when I noticed what I thought were mouse droppings on the shelves with bread, rolls and other baked goods. I was disgusted!!!On Sunday, August 20, again, I was i

  • some friend

    Am I crazy to think that it's a dick-head move to bail on plans with someone (without telling them) to hang out with other mutual friends but not invite that person either? You could have just told me you couldn't go out with me- it's not like I would ha
  • Mr Dixon charged with threatening Community Service Minister

  • Clinic Purgatory

    With every doctor’s visit I increasingly question the rational behind making an appointment. You arrive on time, yet end up waiting hours before you reach your position in the cue. So what’s the point in making an appointment anyway?!!? The fact that the
