    when you are driving the speed limit, and an unmarked police car stops you
    when the traffic cop says sometime people drive the speed limit because they may be impaired
    when you volunteer to take a test and the traffic cop says no
    when the traffic cop says go with the flow of the traffic on this hilly, one lane road
    when you tell the cop that the flow of the traffic is 20 over the speed limit, and the road is icy

    when the cop apologizes for stopping you, as a car nearly crashes into another passing in a no passing zone
    when the cop rushes away to catch the other car, leaving you to get back on the road yourself

    you can't win when you are trying to obey the law

    or... you can fill out a report to the officer's boss telling them you were stopped for obeying the law...

    Hope you did not get hurt nor fall! I have heard of a trailing winter scarf end snagging a door knob or similar and senior getting a leg fracture after the fall on hard floor.

    There's a Halton OPP cop in Oakville that would probably love you to drive in his area for model driving (plus Oakville has a ban on loud exhaust pipes) . He's been nabbing distracted drivers near his HQ plus tow drivers with wrong stickers or insecure equipment or tire issues.

    This guy should lose his traffic patrol assignment (or maybe that's what he wants) -- but a posted speed limit is actual defined under "ideal conditions" ... and in fact (and not a slag on you, by any means) but if it was icy, one should expect you to be going SLOWER than the posted speed limit. But rather to encourage you to "go with the flow" doesnt seem like good advice if everyone is doing 20+

    On another note: Impaired drivers rarely drive the exact speed limit. They are actually more apt to drive quite a bit below the speed limit as their judgement is usually way off as well. Regardless, however, that should not be cause enough to pull you over. If you arent being a hazard (ie drifting, swerving, etc) then pulling you over was just something to keep him entertained, I should think.

    But good on you for being a safer driver.

    Loud rumbling exhaust pipes rattling the heck out of our wooden window frames no matter what hour said drivers with said exhausts cruise, drive or race by on the street. Expect to hear more racket once daylight savings time lengthens the "look at me" hours of annoyance.

    Need noise cancelling waves STAT

    Being criticized for "hoarding". You don't know my family situation and you don't know who I'm buying for.

    You're not going to guilt me from buying just because you can't find stock in your neck of the woods.

    After weeks of headlines of country wide hoarding, I should feel ashamed for buying when I find stock? Yeah, OK.

    >>

    You buy what you need. If it is a lot so be it. Peoples gripes are for those buying for 6 months worth and leaving none for everyone else. That and re-selling online. Just madness. This isn't some little nothing of a country. We have plenty of stock.

    I've got enough to last me a month. Buying beyond that is just insane. And most of it is perishable so you will just end up tossing it out.

    Over flowing carts everywhere makes no sense to me.

    A few things off my mind today sorry
    long line at maxi like 30 minutes line because of slow motion and covid 19.....
    again maxi..when you have to change cans you have to be there earlier ...I was there at 9:30 am and only 2 distributor..and this guy with so many bags of cans and bottles ..wow...it took litteraly like 20 minutes ....and the long line after..and this jerk guy had a big agressive melt down at the till because the cashier was not fast enough for him and did not want to take 1 cans at 5 cent back...really you are doing a crisis for a 5 cent can......they actually had to call the cops...that is crazy

    seeing the samples I missed in sample source after but at least I got some

    no sign of my promised johnsonville coupons after 1 month and a half...mail is slow..but...wow
    e-mail pharmacie qc proxim to ask if they take coupons especially printed coupons because normally I dont go there but a few good deals with coupons caught my attention..no response back...

    Fundraiser guy who knocked at my door and ask me 10$ for 2 tiny bars of chocolate...no way

    ah I feel better..thanks for this thread
