As the leeches of society reveal themselves one slimy creature at a time....

 

I bought tp to give to those in need (my Dad's neighbour is a senior who's helped him in times of trouble...what goes around comes around so I got him some because he couldn't find any).   There is such a sense of community in some places (like this fellow who's helped us in times of need).  My complex too...adversity can really bring people together.   Or...set them apart in a very bad way.

I hate these people.  They are all that's wrong with the world today....

They are selfish and care only about...self.  Screw everyone else.  May karma deliver a truck load of crap your way to go with your tp.  Can't even park in a spot...no respect for anything it seems.  Including self.

 

Share the hell out of these stories and out these monsters.

I saw that.  We'd debated rolling up on her in a mob.  Taking her tp and vehicle and selling her wheels in another parking lot for more tp.

 

We're not nice people.

 

But on a more serious note, there are people now upsetting diapers and baby formula and that has my blood boiling

Ya John McAffee, the guy who was jailed for potential murder and has been the man behind some of the most outlandish conspiracy theories over the last few years.  Comparing a frigging virus to a computer code.

 

Let's listen to him instead of literally the entire global medical community.

 

I am sure if a specialist in infectious diseases started speaking up about computer viruses Johnny wouldn't be the first person to discredit their ability to diagnose or understand.  But whatever

i would not use him to protect my computer

let alone my personal health

Jeeze, you monkeys really didn't read the 'perspective, if you can call it that'. It was posted with a comedy sketch, for humor...

CRANK IT! Not gonna lie. I cried. And I'm not even Italian. 

Goosebumps.

 

This song, in particular, has always brought a tear...was my Mum in law's favourite.

Me too - have these people no conscience?  Never mind, they don't.

 

The stores need to be really proactive in this.  Limit of two.  End of story.

All these people trying to personally profit will have karma coming back at them 

 

the biggest issue I have with this is simply what about seniors that can’t get out, can’t wait in line at Costco to buy essentials while others buy out stock and then try to fleece the weakest in society 

 

what have we become? 
 

so the lady selling tp out of her car? Karma is on the way, her plate is in the public domain, she will be charged with selling without a licence, someone will get her name out in the public now and she will regret this for the rest of her pathetic life

 

karma

That's my bunny.  LOL

 

Funny thing is...there's been a rabbit virus circulating for the past 3 years - brutal consequences for buns that get it.  Fast and furious.  Gruesome.  Bunny owners were initially terrified.  As we waited for the vaccine to be approved for use in Canada, we had very strict protocol in order to protect our beloved pets.  Veterinarian strength disinfecting spray.  No shoes worn inside...clothing changed downstairs.  Immediate and thorough hand washing.  Even so far as no windows open (in the summer) , didn't go for walks outside because bunnies who had perished of this had carcasses capable of making it airborne as birds and other means of transport were considered.  It was brutal, but necessary.  The measures were really isolating.  The virus only affects rabbits but others could carry it around on shoes, feet, etc.  Even car tires were a huge issue as they transported it from place to place. 

 

Hard for me that first summer - no flipflips or open shoes.  What????

 

I sort of carried the protocol over to some degree...was hard to break the routine.  So I'm fully in the "virus protection mode".  No shoes in the house and wash as soon as I get in are no brainers - just come naturally now.

 

This is something very necessary - to be proactive and preventative rather than irresponsible and part of the problem (not the solution).

With regards to Tim Hortons they put a pathetic press release referring to “misinformation” 

 

to be clear most provinces have come out saying that a medical note can not be a requirement for an employer in the case of an an employee feeling ill so the Tim’s policy has been overridden. Now Tim’s is trying to state that that was not their policy

 

on top of Everything rose time is not paying the employees that are ill. They do not pay for sick says and have not changed that policy 

 

boycott Tim’s people 

 

go somewhere where the coffee and food is not crap

There is no humour when people post the most erroneous sources regarding this when there are parents literally scrambling for basic food and supplies for their kids and elderly to afraid to even leave their homes to attempt to resupply.

Lost in this is the underlying stories of fear

 

People jumped on this and whole swaths of the internet started calling for his deportation, he's not even Canadian, he wouldn't do this in his own country.

 

Fear has made peoples real selves come out to play there's a fun group on the internet of people who wear yellow vests, I think they're crossing guards.  They seized on this and ran with it.

Plenty of humor out there:

 

But sure, take the high road and make a statement no one is going to disagree with. That'll save face for a lack of reading comprehension.

TBH, I started "boycotting" Tim's years ago when I realized that their coffee sucks....There's an Internet Cafe (yes, they still have those) close to where I work that brews a Kona blend that I'm addicted to, so they get my business instead of Tim's (which is also close)....

 

However,the problem as i see it is that many Tim Horton's employees need their jobs and a boycott could cause layoffs. It's easy to say "just get another job", but it's not quite that simple. I feel bad for the treatment that these people endure, but I'm not sure an all out boycott is the answer. I wish I had one...

About 10 years ago I was in line in a Tim’s (could not justify waiting in the drive through) and I just asked myself why the h am I lining up for this?

 

from that day forward I have never purchased from Tim’s 

 

now I happily pay my dollar at McDonalds

What an absolute moron.

Car accidents kill over a million people a year. But if Tesla comes out with a smart car that runs over 1000 people in a week, we have to contain that damn car.

i started boycotting before i even realized how crappy their offerings were

i stopped going when i realized i'd have to line up and wait every time i went there

i was stunned to see people would wait in lines for 15 minutes or longer

for the privilege to get a timbit or some other morsel from them

 

i figure if they cannot figure out how to more quickly take my money from me

they really do not have a solid business model

and i lost interest in going there

 

oops i see another poster who i have on iggy

posted something similar

in my initial blindness to that post i now see that i am redundant
