Hugs win by three beating slugs 7-4

The holiday season is upon us and it appears if people in Nelson are, for the most part, in a good mood.

SLUGS: Slugs to the physically able people who park in handicap spaces. ‘I was only there for a short time’ is a pitiful excuse for your disrespectful behaviour.

 

HUGS: Big hugs to the wonderful woman working at a local store who rushed to my little boy’s aid when he slipped on the slick floor. The warm wash cloth and lollipop was greatly appreciated.

 

HUGS: Many huge, giant hugs to our two transit drivers who keep our city buses so clean, both inside and out. These guys start work while many of us are still in dreamland. You should be commended for the amount of time you spend doing this job. Keep up the great work!

 

HUGS: Hugs to the dedicated mother-in-law for doing what she can in helping dissolve stale family disputes, keeping open and for welcoming the new family. I just want to say, I feel relieved and better. I’m glad to be around you.

 

SLUGS: To all businesses who heat their store for their staff’s comfort rather than their heavily-coated customers. Why not ask your staff to wear sweaters? You’ll save on your heating bill and be more appreciated by your customers.

 

HUGS: I want to send an enormous hug to the wonderful crew who came to my house and stacked and split my three cords of wood and fixed up my woodshed and cleaned up so beautifully.

 

HUGS: Hugs to the local yoga instructor who generated all that positive karma by rescuing my backpack on Tuesday night!

 

SLUGS: To the group of 15 or 20 teenagers who thought it would be a good idea to party outside on the street. I know you are drinking and trying to be cool, but please, people live on that road and are trying to sleep. Keep your party inside or at least somewhere away from residences. Also HUGS: To the Nelson Police Department for coming so quickly to break up that same teen party.

 

HUGS: To the individual who gave $25 grocery store gift certificates to locked-out workers.  Your kindness is much appreciated.

 

SLUGS: To all dog owners who refuse to take responsibility for their pets. I know picking up feces is kind of gross, but it’s part of the job. The city is kind enough to put out bags and garage bins along the walkways, the least you can do is use them. You know it’s wrong to leave it. I’ve watched as you look left and right to see if anyone noticed and then just left it there. Well, I noticed!

 

HUGS: Hugs and kudos to the person that complained about the constant exposure to Christmas songs — especially the jazzed-up Americanized versions. They are an ear-sore to me. They drive me away. Play something soothing like classical music which lifts the spirit.
