  • Fat Bitches

    I was reading through the archives the other day when I came across a bitch about pets and small apartments. Someone commented it’s such a shame that people with small apartments have pets. Think about this for a moment and if you agree that it’s wrong o

  • Metro Transit: less to bitch about lately.

    For a while now I've been making regular calls to the city to complain about the behaviour of the transit drivers along one or another of my regular routes. Although I'm a big fan of public transit and I respect what must be a largely thankless job, I've
  • Share The Air

    I have nothing against smokers, your body your decision, but when your polluting the air that you share with non-smokers it gets to be just a tad annoying. To walk/or run by Northwood Senior's Living Complex on Gottingen St, is disgusting and hard on the
  • Attention Dal Girls From Toronto

    This is just a little FYI: none of you are Sienna Miller, Ok? Ok. And you're not Kate Moss either. So please (for the love of God) stop wearing leotards/stockings/leggings in place of pants. They don't call them "magic pants", and frankly that's what it

    This bitch goes out to the ugly, profoundly stupid, Calgarian woman in my Caribbean History class at DAL. You come to class every day about 15 minutes early with your Calgary Flames jersey and cowboy hat, with your fucking OBNOXIOUS upside-down glasses
  • Open Mic My ASS!

    Well, I can't mention the name of the downtown club that reaps profits when the "open mic" sign goes up. Nor can I mention the organization hosting said 'open mic night' but the players in this town should know what they're in for. Hell, as a non-partici

  • Hesitant

    Can I bitch about the Coast's own bitch forum? I've been reading it, and an awful lot of it is people bitching about each other, or attacking each other is maybe more accurate. I mean almost the whole recent comments section along the side there is taken
  • We Want AC/DC for Halifax

    How are we able to entice AC/DC to come to Halifax instead of Sir Paul McCartney? I mean come on, if a band can top the Stones, then it has to be AC/DC. There is a group on Facebook who want them to come too, its not too late!

  • Why?

    Why do some Canadians feel the need to go to other countries, instigate problems, get caught, go on death row, and then complain and want to be saved after doing what they did, fully knowing the consequences? If you go to Saudi Arabia, knowing that it'

    To the apparently half retarded guy on the 1 the other day...I might be hot, but that doesn't give you the right to stare at me the entire bus ride! I don't know who you are, either, so why you waved at me every time I looked over to see if you were stil

    I got herpes 20 years ago. I told ONE CLOSE FRIEND about it way back when we started work together 15 years ago. Over the years other co-workers have told me, she is not the friend I think she is, but they would never say why. Well now I know, dammit. So

    You know who the fuck you are. Get a life. Your an Ex for a reason. She obviously dumped you because she didn't want to be around you or talk to you, but yet you still feel the need to call and ask her to do things. Find a new girlfriend to harass or are
  • CFL vs NFL

    Why do so many people in the maritimes not like the CFL? Seriously? It is far better than the NFL -- the field is bigger, the balls are bigger, and there are fewer downs, making it an all around more exciting game! It takes skill to play in the CFL, w

  • Move over!

    This is to the asshole who sped up on the bicentennial when I was trying to merge onto the highway. I realize that you have the right away, but I also shouldn't have to come to a complete stop on the merger when it's not busy. You don't sped up so I can'
  • Long board
