Venting and Explaining to Whoever Left this on My Car at the Hospital

To whomever felt it necessary to leave this on my windshield today:

HIYA

First off, thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave me such a note! When I arrived at work this morning to find little parking, as usual, in the hospital parking lot, I had to grab the first spot I could find. Unfortunately, the person beside me was parked “selfishly” as you put it and forced me to park further over than desired. Although still within my lines of the stall, I’m sorry the way I was parked in an effort to not be late for my shift taking care of other people’s loved ones was an inconvenience to you when you came. This may seem like a passive-aggressive sarcastic message, but I am offering a genuine apology! I too would be frustrated if I had troubles parking in a place where a free spot is a rare find!!

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  Remarkable Photo - The View from the Bathroom of a $95 Million Penthouse on Park Avenue in New York City

In saying that, can I suggest you save your paper and ink for printing something a little less rude? You were unaware of the parking situation when I arrived, so going as far as to say I think the world revolves around me and my needs is uncalled for. In fact, the complete opposite is true, otherwise I wouldn’t have chosen the career I did πŸ˜‰ I’m sorry you feel you know me as a person based on such a situation!

Happy long weekend to you and your family! πŸ™‚

  1. I’m assuming that this note is a general-print note, and there is only one write-up. Meaning, they all say exactly this, and this person probably carries 15 or 20 of them in their pocket at all times and hands them out like candy. Don’t take it personally at all.

      Your awesome Jody and I like to see the posts and if I want to say something I do if I don’t I won’t πŸ™‚ my view is if you dont like the page leave the page, pretty simple, you take your personal time to do this and time is something we don’t have a lot of so I respect and applaud you for running this page the best you can with your own time πŸ™‚

      Also remember Jody has asked that we send in more shout outs to keep it more upbeat. If you don’t like the rants find something positive to post about instead of bringing more negativity to the group by complaining about the posts and the runner of the site voicing their opinion.

    • I often see you disagree with someone’s post, so why do you post it? also, every second post is a complaint , maybe you should change the name of the page , otherwise , only post shout outs.

    • I have an opinion, and I share it. I disagree with a lot of the negative posts, and I feel that posting my own opinion is completely viable. Am I not allowed to voice my own opinion? If so, why not?

      Is it better if I comment like this instead?

      By the way, it’s not possible to do a name change. You can ask Facebook about that one. Trust me, I’ve tried back in the day.

      Anyway, why so glum? Just because I disagree with a post, doesn’t give me the right to just not post it for everyone else to read. ‘The heck? I was simply trying to make this OP feel better about themselves, and to not take it personally. Sheesh.

    • I just can’t comprehend why an admin would want to post something they disagreed with. you have all the control. it’s unnecessary drama, not from you , from everyone. I read some of these comments after a ridiculous post about drivers, or parking, or ones that start with “to the person who … “and feel like I lost 20 IQ points. it’s not even a shout out page. it’s a place where people complain anonymously because they’re too afraid to do it themselves. & yes, I will unfollow, because I don’t want to read it or see it.

      If you were the poster of something that Jody didn’t agree with and he decided not to post it, would you be angry? Yes. Jody chooses what to post but I’m sure he post everything whether he agrees with it or not unless it is against certain rules.

    • I post 99% of what I’m sent in, Jenna.

      This community is for you guys/girls. I’m just the guy running it and making it all happen.

      These are the true words and feelings of Edmontonians. I’m not voiding anything except for those trying to sneak in free advertising, those that provide links without a description or message, and those that are calling out to certain people in particular. It’s your voices. Not mine. (Well, I guess every now and again I post news, etc., but you get it….)

      I agree with you Jenna, in a world where I can turn on the tv, pick up a paper and go online to see all kinds of negative stories, I too thought Shoutout Edmonton was a page to boast about the wonderful people and places in our beautiful city, you know, something different. Instead it seems the admin would rather post the same old tired drama lure type posts that are so common and boring. Anywho, yeah, I hope to see something positive from this page, people have their own pages where they can voice their drama..but a huge thank you to the nurse who chose to give their time to take care of our loved ones.

    • that’s all I wanted to see. shout outs. and I’ve seen some on this page that has restored my faith in humanity but for every positive post there’s 8 negative posts to follow..

    • It doesn’t make sense how I’m to blame for this.

      There are 12,000 of you that follow Shoutout Edmonton on Fb & Tw.

      Send in some Shoutouts and stop sending in those damn Rants. πŸ™‚ I too, am fed up. But it’s not my choice to make. If I don’t post the rants and concerns, then Shoutout would get 1 to 2 posts per day, which I am not okay with.

    • Why don’t you leave the page then? You guys are causing the drama.

    • Many thanks, Trevor! Means a lot. πŸ™‚

      Have you ever heard of freedom of speech? Just because he doesn’t agree with something, I imagine he still wants to ensure that this is a place for free expression and where we can be mature enough to discuss and entertain opinions we may not hold ourselves. It’s the mark of an intelligent mind, to consider ideas you do not believe in.

      Don’t mean to speak for you Jody, but if I ran a page like this, I would do the same.

  2. What is happening to this world ? Where all I see now is complaining about everything ? Everything we do is being watched and judged by others and they find it in them to have to complain , just like this post also complaining . I farted in the elevator once ! No one was bold enough to speak up . Cowards hiding behind notes

  3. Some people can be so rude without knowing your situation. Dont ever feel you need to apologize. I assume youre a nurse. Thank you for all your hard work. Taking care of peoples loved ones is such an important job. Take care

  4. Great note and idea! Dont want notes, pay for parking maybe and dont blame your parking on the person beside you. You chose to park there and follow others. You also chose your profession dont use it so ppl sympathize. You sound like a whiny princess!

    [0]
  5. Yeah, those notes should be reserved for the corvette in the handicap stall or the jacked up truck taking up 2.5 stalls. If your parked between the lines, your parked legally. There is no need to nitpick over how close a person is to either line.

  6. If you are between your own lines you are just fine. People can frig off.

  7. Laugh it off and let it go. Don’t let something as silly as this ruin your day. Continue to do the good work that you do and wipe your behind with the parking note…

    If you thought that note was rude, you should have seen the one left on mine yesterday. It wasn’t nearly as polite and had a dick picture drawn on it suggesting I do things to it I’d prefer not to do

    I had parked at the grocery store between two vans who were parked far too close to the spot I pulled into so it was a bit of a tight squeeze to get out but not impossible. When I came back out I found the lovely note on my windshield from one of the van owners who left. The funny thing was I was parked dead centre of my stall, I couldn’t have parked it any better! I just laughed at the note and placed it on the windshield of the other van who actually deserved it πŸ™‚

    People suck, you just have to laugh it off sometimes!

  9. Thanks for posting this and reminding me that sometimes it’s not the fault of the person that I parked beside but maybe the person that parked there previously. It seems to me that parking stalls are getting smaller all the time and it can be pretty frustrating. I chalk it up to first-world problems in a growing growing population. There’s just so much stress out there that it seems like people are becoming animals and just lashing out at each other.

  10. This woman must be a very good mother to have patience and maturity to speak like that after receiving such a less than polite note.

  11. Use those notes for the asshats who can park anywhere but choose to park, say, at the entrance/exit of a p/lot or right in the lot thoroughfare, holding up traffic, just to get their coffee with less inconvenience. If you’re that lame, get a handicap placard. If you’re not lame, you are just a lazy asshat.

  12. I saw one that had Mickey Mouse giving the finger and it said if you park like you f@#$ you will never get it in.

    I think it’s a reflection of how collectively bad drivers are in Edmonton when it comes to parking that people have lost their cool enough to do this.

  15. It is a rude note. Years ago I took the last parking spot at a strip mall. ONE car had serriously overlapped a stall & forced 5 cars to fit around it. Had a prescription to fill. When I got back to my car the 2 beside me had left. Got in my car, turned the ignition on when a man pulled up behind to prevent me from backing. He started honking, screamed for me to get out of my car. I put my window down to tell him there both: he had a spot to park AND why my wheels where over line. He wanted me to step out!! As this was befor cell phones. I blased my horn, made sure my doors where up, doors locked. He parked a stall over. I backed & left! Very scary. I would rather had a silly note.

    I am a nurse too. Also inconvenienced by the parking hassles at work right now. But i absolutely lose my s#@! when i see cars taking up two spots or being so close to the marking lines that there is no way in h$!! that a rational person would think to park next to that car. Keep driving around the lot and park properly. Stop excusing rude behavior–just because one person is a jerk doesn’t mean you have to follow suit!

  21. It must be exhausting being perfect all the time! I feel sorry for that Person! That must be a lot of pressure not to mention inhumane!
