Slugs defeat hugs this week, 4-3

SLUGS: To a few residents at a local seniors home who sit most days on the corner and gossip constantly.

SLUGS: To a few residents at a local seniors home who sit most days on the corner and gossip constantly. Don’t they have better things to do? This is a facility for seniors who would like to live their remaining years free of malicious gossip and a comfortable place to call their home. Some of the residents are not well here and could do without this juvenile behaviour. This is very immature and not a suitable environment for older and ill residents. You know who you are.

SLUGS: To the man who treated us rudely. If you don’t like a six-year-old kid spending time at your store looking at your Pokemon cards, you should not be selling them. And sorry we didn’t know there is a time limit for customers to look. You should post a big sign outside your store. And if you consider it babysitting when a kid stays longer, you should inform us ahead so that we know that we owe you something. We bought a bunch of Pokemon cards from your store before, but now you will never ever see our faces again. Your rude attitude shows what kind of person you are. I pity you. You should not be working in that kind of business. We will not support a store that is not customer friendly.

HUGS: Huge thanks to a local jeweller and the lovely job of engraving my heart shaped necklace for my brand new baby boy. Much love. – One happy Mommy

HUGS: To the women in the library who commented on my handling of a potential toddler meltdown the other week. As a new mom of two who feels overwhelmed a lot these days, I thank you for letting me know I’m doing all right. You said “for what it’s worth.” I wanted to let you know it was worth so much.

HUGS: To the man at the dogpark on the 1st who was making an effort to socialize his German Shepherd. Your dog, however, is displaying marked signs of either territorial or fear aggression and an off leash park may be a little ambitious for him at this time. May I suggest leashed walks where other dogs would be leashed as well, so he/she doesn’t feel as vulnerable when other dogs approach? There is a lot of good information and tips on dealing with aggressive dogs, also researching the breed would be useful. Many German Shepherds simply don’t have it in their nature to have playful dogs greet them and are not well suited for off leash areas.

SLUGS: To Fairweather Parents: people who decide to have children and then chose to parent and/or contribute financially only when it suits them. Where is the integrity in that? Disappointed.

SLUGS: This a special shout out to the huge slug that proceeded to swear and humiliate his elderly father in the mall. All the while the senior was just trying to eat his sandwich. Dude, if you want to yell at someone, yell at me or someone who can defend themselves to your anger problem. They took care of us when we were young and now we are taking care of them. Show some respect!
