“I have lived in many parts of Canada and I have never seen so many drivers NOT using their signal indicators as I have in St. John’s. They exist for a reason, people!! Not letting drivers around you know when/where you are about to turn greatly increases the risk of accidents. (And considering how many drivers here seem to be uninsured, that’s no joke.)” – Frustrated Driver
“You people complain about overnight parking bans on Water & Duckworth Street. But you also complain when there’s snow on Water & Duckworth Street. When do you expect the city to clear the snow, without imposing a parking ban 3-6am? Serious question. If there’s always cars there, they can’t clear snow.” – Curious Citizen
“Hey, I’ve an idea … when turning left at an intersection, how about pulling ahead into the intersection instead of staying firmly positioned behind the line so that when the light turns yellow more than one car actually makes it through the intersection per light? I can’t count the number of times a light has turned yellow with the lead car just sitting there stunned with 5 cars behind stuck waiting for the next light. Argh.” – Really?!?
“Am I the only one who pulls away from a Tim Horton’s drive-thru with my order messed up? I’m wonderign if it’s just me, or the location near my office!?” – Not a Double Doubler / That’s the Wrong Bagel
“I get my biggest kicks in moments of boredom from finding people on Facebook whose birthday it is, whom I barely know, and wishing them the grandest birthday wish. Like way over the top. To someone I barely know, saying, ‘OMG, HBD! So glad you were born and we got to meet. You’re a real light in all our lives.’ You know, just to give them a wtf moment.” – Easily Bored
“Is it just me or is the new web design of this site WAY too cluttered with massive images which makes navigation a headache? The site seems WAY too busy now and gives the illusion of more content but really its the same stuff linked 3 different times on the main page. I don’t know about you but looking at the homepage gives me anxiety.” – Sensory Overload
“Just wondering if there’s any interest in creating a Men’s Film Fest? Same Rules as the Women’s Film Fest, although we run the risk of sexism but i think it’s a small price to pay for the quality of films that would come from it.” – E. Kwalatea
Hey! I’m new in town and a big old fatso pizza lover. Could you locals tell me what the best pizza spots in town are, so I’ll know whereto get my fix without much trial and error? Thanks! – Kyle
“Ms Janitor from the January issue would love cleaning the washrooms at my place of work. The urinals have little, if any, pee on the floor adjacent to them. I suspect that the auto-flush is a big reason why. Men generally don’t like standing too close to a urinal while relieving their bladder due to the splashback which occurs when the stream hits the porcelain. Not a huge deal for most of an average leak, but those last ten seconds when the pressure is at its lowest is when the man should either lean in or move closer to avoid spillage. The autoflush ensures that the previous individual’s urine has been fully washed away and hugging the urinal doesn’t feel as gross. That said, being intoxicated while standing at a urinal is totally different; the drunker the men are, the less they care where they pee. Hope this sheds some light on your workplace mystery. Thanks for keeping the floors clean!” – I.P Standing
“This impending downtown parking ban is bullsh*t, parking is reduced in Janaury anyway, i don’t know why council feel this is necessary. I wonder if driving under the influence is gonna increase since people can’t leave their vehicle on a weekend night? Andy Wells would not have allowed this to happen.” – Wheres Andy Wells?
