Buckets & Bouquets

BOUQUETS to a kind lady who handed in my handbag at a bottle shop in Geelong West after I left it in a toilet.
Grateful Pensioner, Geelong West

BUCKETS to the operator of a loud, whining digger for starting work in a rural zone at 7.30am on a Sunday. You were heard in the residential zone. Hours of the whining on the Saturday was enough without the early Sunday start.
Show Consideration, Portarlington

BOUQUETS to Oz Wide Locksmiths’ John for his intelligent service and patience with our endless phone calls as we endeavoured to replace a key for an old car. He tried to help us save money at all stages of the endeavour.
Summer and Dana, North Geelong

BOUQUETS to the Barwon Club Hotel for great service and food. Special thanks to Kate.
The Jones Clan, Lara

BOUQUETS to two young ladies who saw money fall from my pocket at Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre’s car park. They followed me into Coles to return the money. They are a credit to themselves and their parents for their amazing honesty.
Grateful Graeme, Grovedale

BUCKETS to the nose-picking motorists of Geelong. I am staggered by the number of drivers – of both sexes – that I encounter with fingers buried up their nostrils. They almost rival the number of drivers using phones. Surely this is a road safety issue. I look forward to a police crackdown.
Disgusted Driver, Belmont

BUCKETS to the illiterate responsible for Geelong traffic signs saying “traffic restrictions applies”. English grammar is obviously not a requirement for employment with the responsible authority.
David, Corio

BOUQUETS to McHarry’s Buslines. Travelling from St Leonards to Geelong on one of its buses is always a pleasure. As well as enjoying the scenery, I have been delighted with the service of the drivers. They go out of their way to help the disabled, elderly and mothers with prams.
Marie, St Leonards

BOUQUETS to E&S Trading’s Barbara and Nicole for solving my fridge problem in a couple of hours and for charging me $100 less than another quote. The service was wonderful. Delivery people Neville and Braden were great, too.
Isabel, Newtown

BOUQUETS to Whitehaven Newcomb for its wonderful care and support during my short stay. You are all very special.
Jan, Marshall

BUCKETS to a real estate agent who speaks crap. Your integrity must have fallen into the cereal box when you pulled out your qualification. Next time I sell I’m doing it myself.
Property Owner, Geelong

BOUQUETS to a man who handed in my prescription sunglasses to a McHarry’s Buslines driver on Saturday morning. I’d left them on my seat and was grateful to get them back on my return bus. It might seem trivial but the sunglasses would be expensive to replace.
Grateful Pensioner, Ocean Grove

BUCKETS to the thoughtless idiot who left on the beach a beer bottle, which I found broken into a jagged shape protruding from the sand. I shudder to think what might have happened if someone had stepped on it in the dark, as I could have while walking my dog before sunrise.
Barefoot Walker, Torquay

BUCKETS to a venue where mouldy chocolates caused three of us to vomit and have diarrohea. We later returned but were offered no apology or an explanation of how the venue’s food-handling procedures would be improved. It would have been different if it had been their heads in the toilet.
Disappointed Sue, Whittington
