THUMBS UP - to the person who found my purse in a buggy at Walmart Port Perry Supercentre in November 2017 and returned it to customer service with wallet and everything intact. I am a little tardy in getting this message to you, but wanted to thank you so much! Wish you and your family the best in 2018. THUMBS DOWN - to the man in the small black car who ignored the no trespassing signs and illegally entered the property of Borelia Crescent on Monday January 22nd at 3:15 p.m. and deposited his garbage in the apartment dumpster. Would you like someone to dispose of his or her garbage on your property? THUMBS UP - to two young men from Port Perry High School named Mac and John, who came to the help of this elderly lady after seeing me staring in horror at my very flat left front tire on a bitterly cold morning in January, on Old Simcoe Road. After telling them I would call Roadside Assistance they told me it would take too long, so they efficiently jacked up the car, wriggled underneath to remove the spare tire, then installed it and sent me on my way. It’s encouraging to know we have such kind young men in our town! THUMBS DOWN - to the increasing number of drivers in the area who do not bother to signal their intentions, also, the drivers who do not bother to stop at stop signs. They just float thru those right hand turns. I guess they feel that they are entitled to act this way. Whatever happened to the concept of doing the right thing and obeying the law? It is unfortunate that entitlement is rapidly advancing into all aspects of our lives. THUMBS UP - This is long overdue as it happened at the end of December, but wanted to give a shout out to the two gentlemen that stopped to help me when my vehicle was stuck in a snowy ditch at night (on the Island). I don’t know who they were, but it was a gentleman who drove a range rover and another who went to get his truck. Thank you for helping and getting me out that snowy ditch. THUMBS UP - to the guy that works at the Esso Mac’s Store on 7A and Simcoe Street. My wallet fell out in the process of leaving the store and I didn’t realize until late the same night. My most heartfelt ‘thank you’ for holding on to it for me! Do you have a Thumb up or down that you would like to see published?
