Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
Today, I had the unfortunate incident of my car slipping into a ditch due to snow flying everywhere on Howard and County Rd 20. I just wanted to thank everyone who stopped and checked to make sure I was okay and asked me if I needed help. The house in front of where the incident happened, thank you so much for coming out of your house and helping me. Also, to the OPP officers and the Fireman who also checked in on me to make sure I was okay and drove behind me until I was completely okay, thank you. It's people like all of you who still make me believe that there are good people out there. Thank you again.
Hello everyone! I feel as if my wife and I have missed a memo regarding the new unspoken rule on speeding. Growing up (I'm 31) I was taught that everyone does 10 over the limit, driving the actual speed limit will get you tailgated and birded. We've always honored that rule but we find tailgating to be getting much worse in the last few years. Especially on 80km highways (Howard out of Windsor is really bad!!)
Just hoping to hear some opinions, is it time for us to speed up?
I just wanted to say thank you soooooo much to the person at no frills in Amherstburg. They witnessed a white chrylser 300 hit my car while I was shopping and was kind enough to take down her licence plate number and leave it for me!!! It is so greatly appreciated!!!
I was waiting for the bus to return to Windsor from dropping a car off in the Detroit area when a woman also waiting at the stop at the tunnel entrance asked me for fair to cross. While going through my change a car pulled up as the lady driving it needed to retrieve her purse from her trunk. She saw us there and asked if we wanted a ride across. The lady at the bus stop said she had to wait for someone so I gave her bus fare and accepted the ride from the sweet and beautiful lady. She told me about immigrating to Canada from Mexico 20 + years ago and believed in helping others. She even drove me to where my car was parked a few blocks away.
It's so nice to see someone as sweet and caring,
Thank you Ms Mexico :)

I purchased 3 avocados from Zehrs on Malden Road, and when I got home, they were no where to be found. I searched my entire car, thinking maybe they rolled around by accident, but no luck. I'm an on-call worker, and haven't been working much lately, and the avocados were basically a splurge, due to their price (but they're oh-so-yummy). I went back to the store the next day to pick up an item I forgot, and decided to check the front to see if they had a "left-behind log" for food. They did have this log, and I showed my recipe, but my avocados weren't listed. The friendly cashier said, "Just go pick out some more; you have your receipt, and I don't think that you'd come all the way back for 3 avocados if you already had them."
I worked at the same chain of grocers in the past, and I know that if the item left behind wasn't logged, the policy was that we couldn't give the customer the item. I asked if the cashier was sure, and she said, "Yes! Go ahead! If anyone stops you, I'll pay for them!"
She has no idea how much she made my day. Now I can "indulge" on avocados and not feel guilty for spending the money on something extra while not working much. Thank you so much for your kindness!!
Krista at Sobey's check-out was very helpful to me yesterday when I found out that I had accidently left my credit card at home in Colchester. I wish all store employees were as friendly and good at problem solving. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to Krista.
I want to thank our Wal-Mart santa!!! You take time on your day off to greet all the kids and adults. Your a very kind soul.
