HUGS & SLUGS: Slugs win 8-7

Did you give someone's battery a boost? Are you an impatient driver? Do you steal all the newspapers? If so, there is a hug or slug for you.

HUGS: To amazing, helpful people.

HUGS: To an emergency support worker for their help the last year.

SLUGS: To the drunk “children” who interfered in saving a child’s life.

HUGS: To people who can lock and unlock their car silently without honking. Sensitive ears

SLUGS: Whoever took the red and white thumb drive. Please return it, no questions asked: 250-352-9916.

HUGS: To the seemingly ultra sensitive soccer people of Nelson. Hopefully your verbal diarrhea is cured before the weekend parking gong show starts.

HUGS: Huge hugs to the great guy who gave us a battery boost in the parking lot of Home Hardware on Thursday. Your kindness is much appreciated.

SLUGS: Big slug to the owner(s) of the pirate boat in the harbour. It has been sinking and now sunk. It is an environmental disgrace. Show some civic pride. Clean up your garbage!

SLUGS: To the big Internet company who left me and my roommates without Internet for four weeks. What should we do with our cell phone data overage fees? Thanks for nothing corporate pigs!

SLUGS: Smelly rotten slugs to the person responsible for discarding their vegetable compost on Redfish Road. If you want to compost, do it the proper way in a compost bin. I’m so tired of lazy people that think it’s their right to litter the roads with garbage.

HUGS: To the 100-plus volunteers who regularly support a local soup kitchen. Without your countless hours of dedicated hard work, we couldn’t keep these doors open to help our community. You may never know how many lives are touched through your acts of caring, but I hope you get a glimpse through smiles, handshakes, and quiet thanks.

HUGS: Big hugs to those who are patient with beginner drivers you see the “L” and understand the person driving is just learning. Big fat slugs to people who are impatient with beginner drivers. The “L” is on the back of the vehicle for a reason — there is no need to honk, speed past on the right (illegally) or generally be a jerk. Once upon a time you were just learning too!

SLUGS: To the person/persons who think it is quite all right to dump their unwanted chickens out in the cold for coyotes and other predators to eat. The poor chickens have no shelter, are freezing and are afraid until something finally takes them out of their misery. This sometimes takes several days of cruel suffering. Be responsible with your livestock. If you can’t dispose of them in a humane way, don’t have them to begin with.

SLUGS: To the hot-head in the small red car at the corner of Baker and Kootenay, noonish on Friday. Of course the guy turning was totally in the wrong, but not sure what was achieved by the following display of road-rage except to cause a whole bunch of head-shaking by those of us on the street. I’m sure the driver that was in the wrong was aware of their mistake not really necessary for you to behave in such a manner. I hope you have a better day today. By-stander

SLUGS: I am pro-hug, but unfortunately this is going to be an honest-to-goodness slug to our Blewett neighbour(s). If you happen to be reading any of the several Nelson Star issues you have taken over the last several weeks (before you burn them or whatever else you happen to be doing with them), please consider finding some other form of fire-starter. I dearly miss reading my paper at breakfast. Your frustrated and uninformed neighbour on Carlson Road
