Things that I won’t bitch about again…

… until I’m 50. Really.

  1. From the Ontario government website:
    Whether on a city street, highway or county road, and regardless of the speed limit and the number of lanes, motorists travelling in both directions must stop when approaching a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing. A flashing stop arm will swing out while passengers are boarding or leaving the bus. (The only exception: on highways separated by a median, traffic coming from the opposite direction is not required to stop).

    Coming back from dropping the kids off at daycare this morning and driving south along St. Laurent. A school bus with lights flashing is stopped in the northbound lane. No median.

    And of course cars travelling in both directions stopped, right?

    WRONG!!!

    And not only that, 5 cars sped by me straddling the centre line and honked at me as if I was doing something wrong! Only one driver stopped behind me! Man, the cops should put an unmarked car behind a school bus just to catch these creeps!!!!

  2. The CPC culture of evasiveness.

    Yeah, yeah, Trashy is off on another anti Harper rant… blah, blah, blah…

    Conservative candidate Joan Crockatt was noticeably absent from Sunday’s Calgary Centre byelection debate.

    Mayor Naheed Nenshi appeared unimpressed, calling it “the elephant not in the room.”

    He quoted a tweet he received from Crockatt confirming she would not attend.

    “I hope tomorrow you remind the crowd about all the good things the Conservatives have done for cities.”

    And they have, Nenshi said.

    “But as I said to her, ‘Gee, you could come and tell them yourself,’” he said. “I don’t think it’s the mayor’s job to do the candidate’s job for her.”

    So CPC candidates are SO proud of themselves for having been anointed by the Chief Robot to stand as a candidate that they feel no need to present their platform in an open forum? All-candidate debates don’t really mean “all”. They mean only “some”.

    The arrogance of this government is astounding, isn’t it?

  3. Air Canada sux. It really does.

    Get this – My spouse trying to book flights for our trip to Cuba in March. I have Aeroplan points I want to use against it plus I have a $500 flight credit given to me for a past bad flight experience. Tried to book said flights using the credit and was informed that because it was Air Canada who issued the credit and not Air Canada Vacations – who handle all trips to Cuba – that the credit couldn’t be used…. didn’t even get to discussing the Aeroplan miles.

    Needless to say I will be following up on this and if not pleased with the outcome with unleash the full fury of this blog, Facebook, Twitter, ya-da-ya-da-ya-da.

  4. Finally, a big fat “who gives a shit” goes out to the NHLPA and the owners. You’ve lost me and will be hard-pressed to get me back. Both groups are little more than a bunch of greedy and selfish bastards!

And that’s it! No more bitching until I’m 50.

Tomorrow: bitching about turning 50.

    Interesting about the schoolbuses, I’ve had the opposite experience out here in the boondocks. It seems people don’t realize that the median means you can carry on and they are constantly stopping.
