  • Joggers and cars don't mix

    I'm sick and tierd of getting dirty looks from joggers in this city who think it is OK to block traffic on the roads. To all the joggers out there, the roads were built for cars not for your whole troop of 6-8 people who jog down Young shoulder to shoul
  • Stupid HRM

    Why not instead of building a new bridge or tunnell to cut down on traffic, why don't the offer a commuter rail, like a Go Train. That would take cars off the roads, genius!
  • Butt Out, Beluga

    To the whale-looking lady who was at the bus stop near Public Gardens today: Yes, it was snowing out, and yes, I understand your URGENT need to fill you lungs with shit, but you dont have to stand under the shelter and force everyone else to breathe in t

  • Drunk at a bar?

    After a couple drinks at home, we head out to a bar to see an old local band. We pay our $20 cover charge - crazy, I know - I drink one beer, and head outside for a smoke. And when I go back in the guy at the door tells me I'm "swaying a bit" and won'

  • Lights out at the Casino

    Has anyone noticed the brightest billboard on the East coast has gone dark? After giving it some thought I came to the conclusion that they probably couldnt afford the light bill. They also seem to be the only place not hiring for the tourist season.

    So, I read the Q104 bitch, and I totally agree.However, they are not the only ones guilty of repetitious tripe.HAL is just as bad. Seriously, you are guaranteed to hear at least 3 Tom Cochrane AND 3 Def Leppard songs every day. WTF?The unfortunate

    To the two old men at Economy Shoe Shop the other night:Don't eye-fuck me, I'm a quarter of your age.I wore that dress for my boyfriend, not for you. Don't stare. And don't think you're being smooth growling "beautiful dress" behind me, an inch from my
  • Little girl

    I'd like to send a message to the girl on the #1 heading to Dartmouth on Wednesday morning, March 26th. You sat in your seat, laughing at the physically/mentally disabled man who got on at the bottom of North St. Did it ever occur to you that several peo

    To the person who manages the Bay parkade along Chebucto Road...have you even thought of cleaning up the moss growing on this monstrosity and maybe cutting back the overgrown foliage? No?

    To the people who use the Eastern Passage waterfront to have a fuck session in their cars -- keep your prophylactics to yourselves! My dog almost ate a used condom someone obviously tossed out their door. Get a garbage bag or get a room. I go for walks t

  • 8.5 million *flush*

    Where is the thunderingly loud public outcry for all of our tax money that was wasted on the idea of the Commonwealth Games? While most of us are scrounging for bus fare, these good ol' boys were travelling all over the world, eating at the best restaur
  • Give it a rest Halifax

    I wouldn't normally write this, but after receiving my ninth invitation to an Ellen Page based group on FaceBook today I felt it was time. What is it with Nova Scotians (mostly Haligonians) feeling the need to tell everyone how they know or met Ellen Pag
  • Reminder

    Garrison tastes like sulfur. I say the move was a good idea...go propellor!
  • Why even bother?

    I have a friend who often has relationship problems. Being her friend, i hear about it all, and it's always the same story: Her boyfriend is too clingy/needy, and anytime she tries to do anything on her own, or with a friend, he goes apeshit and starts a

    Leave them alone Halifax, it's not their fault that they're ghosts, zombies, vampires, or other creatures of the night. It's time to lay down the ghost buster gear, the shot guns, the crosses and garlic and accept this well manoured beings as your equals
  • I'm canadian, not from mars.

    The next person who uses the term "come from away" in my presence will get an earful on how unfunny this term actually is. Sure, YOU might think it's charming or endearing but it's divisive and ignorant. Especially when being one of those "come from

    If you are going to move to the suburbs, work full-time and proceed to have 3 small children under the age of 8, here is some suburban etiquette for you:1. DON'T buy a labrador puppy if your idea of puppy care is to boot him outside at 5 a.m. and let hi

    Dear Mr. Kelloggs,Is it so hard to glue the bottom of the cereal bag to the bottom of the box? Why is it that every time I want to sit down and enjoy a nice bowl of Froot Loops, all I get is bag instead of cereal in my bowl!?

  • I'm tired of your assumptions.

    I'm sick of your attitude. You're an older person who works customer service in a retail environment. For some reason you seem to hate every woman who is younger/prettier/thinner than you, god forbid they be all three. Let me tell you something: I'm n

    To the bitch on bus 1079 the #10 to Westphal, sit the fuck down. Maybe you don't care about your own safety but the rest of us would like to arrive at our destination in one piece. You standing by the driver, talking to him is distracting- besides you w

    I am fat. I'm fat because I ate too much and didn't move enough for a long time. The reasons I made those bad choices are not important. I am making better choices now. So to the two skinny girls on the treadmills behind me: I could hear you gigglin
