Hugs and slugs tied 2-2 this week

HUGS: Recently I fell while walking on Baker Street. Three people stopped and genuinely asked if I was okay.

HUGS: Recently I fell while walking on Baker Street. Three people stopped and genuinely asked if I was okay. One of the ladies helped me up and I sat on a nearby bench. I told her that I was starting to feel faint so she suggested that she help me walk to a nearby restaurant. The waitress was very nice and got me a glass of water and an ice pack to place on my bruised knee. Thank you to all kind and helpful people!

SLUGS: To the person who felt it necessary to take my six-year-old daughter’s gym bag from the rec centre. It had her skirt, shirt, towel, shampoo and birthday goody bag inside. I guess you felt it more important for you to have it than her. You broke her heart, making her a victim of a theft. If it was a mistake, please bring it back. If it wasn’t, shame on you.

SLUGS: To a local health food store that condones selling product that has broken seals. Whether or not you feel the seal breaks when the cap is removed is secondary to the fact that any bottle of any medicine/supplement that I have ever bought specifically states “Do not use if seal is broken.” No seal should come off so easily. This is not a safe practice! The after fact that you would neither exchange my item nor refund my money lost you a customer. Your supplier needs to make their product safer for the consumer… – Going somewhere else!

HUGS: Thanks to everyone in the community who sponsored my Paws for a Cause Walk. Special thanks to one woman for her generous sponsorship and support. Looking forward to knocking on your doors next year!
