Beefs and Bouquets for Nov. 4

Here are this week’s thank yous and gripes about happenings in and around our West Shore community:

BOUQUET: To the young woman who works at the Westshore Town Centre post office. I had to mail a letter which needed to be secured with scotch tape. There was none so she improvised and used mail stickers. I appreciate her giving good customer service, her kindness and it gave me a chuckle and a smile.

BEEF: To all the Halloween partiers who carelessly set off firecrackers and fireworks all weekend long – until all hours. It was hard to track down where they were coming from.

BOUQUET: Here’s to all the road crews who work long days on all the construction all over the West Shore through the heat, pouring rain and soon to be cold. Please be courteous to all the road crews.

BEEF: Please drivers, learn how to zipper merge. Do not race up 200 metres from behind me to pass me and then cut me off when the road is reduced to one lane. This is dangerous.
