This post is dedicated to the thief who took UrbanMummy’s purse while we were with the kids at the Family Pride Day on Saturday.
This low-life snuck up behind me while I was feeding watermelon to the baby, and swiped my wife’s wallet from inside the purse which was underneath a pile of kids’ related stuff, like bibs, change of clothes, diapers and blankets.
As a result, we had to cancel our credit cards, but not before there were some charges and then set off on a fast-paced trek to find receipts for, and recovers funds from, all the numerous gift cards which were given to us for the birth of out baby.
Now we get the pleasure of replacing her driver’s license, health card for UM, as well as those for the Happy Boy and for the Weed.
At this point I hope this low life, tries to use the credit card and store owner catches that it was reported stolen and calls the police. I’d love to find out who you are and press charges. It’s maggots like you that give this beautiful city a bad name.
If you need the money (there was none in the purse) or information so badly, try getting a job and earning it yourself. Asshole. Grrrrrrr.
Now I have vented, but I do not feel better…
During our outing, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Vesa Toskela from the San Jose Sharks. Welcome to Toronto, Vesa!! Your 26-10 record and 2.35 GAA is most welcome. I can breathe easier knowing that once Andrew Raycroft falters, you will be there to pick up the reins and go. I give the team 5 games before you are the starter.
Belinda Stronach… I’m sorry for all the mean things that I said about you for changing from the Conservatives to the Liberals in order to take over a cabinet position. I hope your battle with breast cancer is a successful one. I wish you a speedy recovery!
In random sports news, from thie past weekend, I have Toronto Blue Jays on my mind. I am a big supporter of Toronto’s sports teams, I like them all, especially the Raptors and Jays, but I’m having some doubts about the Jays management this year. For example, the Jays made a very few off-season signings, Tomo Okha, John Thomson and Frank Thomas. The Jays have released Okha and Thomson already. Busts. Thomas… 39 years old. Not the player he was last year. I have my doubts, but I think all the off-season moves to make the Jays better have failed, and considering the fiasco with closer B.J. Ryan’s sore “back” requiring Tommy John ligament replacement in his elbow, I think it’s time for J.P. Riccardi to go. The franchise will go on without his 5 year (7 year) plan. Bye bye, JP.
And for piece of mind that sometimes justice is served, on Monday, a judge ruled in favour of a dry cleaner that was sued for US$54 million over a missing pair of pants in a case that garnered international attention and renewed calls for litigation reform. I think the lawyer who sued the dry cleaner needs to have his license revoked. Do lawyers really want this guy representing their profession? Why can’t the dry cleaner sue him for making a clearly obvious inflated claim. Another asshole. I wonder if this is the clown who swiped UM’s purse? Hmmmm.
Speaking still of assholes…
An image and message of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit released on the website of the military wing of the Hamas movement, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, on the first anniversary of his capture. If it takes 1000 prisioners to be swapped for Gilad’s return, then Israel will do it. Unlike some nations, we actually value human life…
I love the hypocricy that is the United Nations. Let’s blame Israel, let’s blame Israel. It’s been a year since Hamas kidnapped an Israeli soldier and have refused to give him back. They want like 1000 terrorists, er, prisioners returned to them. I got an idea, Hamas, give back the soldiers, turn your reign over to Fatah and let them work out a peace accord with the Israeli’s and the UN, and, oh, that does mean stop firing rockets into Israel. Funny how that is not top news, that rockets get fired in every day, but when Israel does it, it’s front page news.
But that is another story…
I’m still sore about the purse…
I need to run.
