Hugs win 6-3 over slugs

Take a quick look to see what actions people are praising this week.

HUGS. To the Salvation Army cashier who gave me his own pins when I came in looking for pins for my daughter’s collection!  She loved them!

 

SLUGS. To the person who stole my bright yellow Firefly t-shirt from the Val Kilmer and the New Coke show on Saturday, shame on you. Really? That’s pretty low, my friend. I’d like to think that if you had any kind of conscience you’d return it, but I doubt that someone who’d blatantly steal really has a strong grasp on what’s morally right and wrong. Good luck to you and your karma.

 

SLUGS. To whoever removed two boys nice red jackets from the edge of a yard on Fort Sheppard Drive on October 26.  Maybe they were mistaken for “trash to treasure” but actually the boys were just playing road hockey and removed them because they were too warm!  (Hugs. Should you see this and return them.)

 

Slugs. To the laundromat employee who scorched my blanket and the boss who did not reimburse me! You just lost another customer!

 

Hugs. Huge, huge hugs to our scare scramble family. You all kept your heads and cared for us in true dirt-biker fashion. We can’t thank you all enough.

 

Hugs. Huge soft white wintery hugs to a local tire shop for remedying a new employee’s hiccup and de-stressing a new customer. This outstanding management team, during a very busy time, quickly offered a solution to the problem and understood that grace is needed when someone new is learning their job. This is why I always recommend this shop to everyone I can. Way to go.

 

Hugs. A warm hug to the woman who kindly assisted my son and I in the parking lot of the Nelson Animal Hospital last month.  After our vet appointment, we got in our vehicle to find our battery had died. When I inquired in the office as to whether anyone could assist us with battery cables she quickly replied she could (her crated animal in tow). Within minutes we were good to go, and much relieved.  Thank you for being so helpful to complete strangers. You made our day end on a bright note.

 

Hugs. To the wonderful lady that stopped and picked  me and my dignity up after I tripped and ended up face down on the pavement, Thank you. Thank you. (Slugs to the taxi driver in a silver van who didn’t get out to see if we needed help.)

 

Hugs. To all the wonderful people who have shown their overwhelming support by providing us with words of encouragement and a wide array of delicious treats, snacks and drinks during this brutal four-month lock-out. Your kindness and compassion is very much appreciated and one day in return we will “Pay It Forward.”  (Slugs: Great Big Slugs to all the supervisors and managers who continue in their daily efforts to try to do our work.)
