Thursday Cheers and Jeers

Once again this week, we take a look at the memorable performances from the world of customer service, and other folks deserving praise or criticism. Feel free to add your own to the list!


  • Regina Minor Football. The lousy weather in September made for some scheduling challenges, but once again Kelly, Len and the gang came through. It's a very well-run league, despite allowing people with dubious credentials (ie: me) to coach!
  • Regina real estate agent Merv Andersen and the town of Southey. Their generous sponsorship made the atom Cougars' year-end windup even more of a success. Thanks folks!
  • Eriksen Construction. Dave did a great job with my new garage. I've already got him booked to replace my deck in the spring.


  • City Wide Security Systems. They installed the alarm system in my house, so I called them to do the same with my garage. Weeks later, I still haven't had the pleasure of talking to anyone - so let's move on to our next contestant!
  • Toronto Maple Leafs. They're teasing us long-suffering fans with some decent performances in the NHL preseason. But I won't be fooled - I've seen this movie before!
  • Sears (Cornwall Centre). I was thinking about buying a pair of shoes from there yesterday. I spent about a half hour in the shoe department. You'd think that would be enough time for a salesperson to make their way over to me. Guess not!

Okay, who or what is on your list this week?

The vets and staff at Regina Animal Clinic. They all treat Koko well, and they even put up with Missy when I took her in for her shots a couple weeks ago.

Missy, for making everyone in the vet's waiting room laugh when she tried to run around on the slippery floor, and only managed to run in place...

And Kendra, of course, who worked her magic on both dogs this week. And who very helpfully phones the evening before an appointment, or I would have totally forgotten the dogs were getting trimmed this week.


People who comment on news stories - including radio hosts - blaming the victims. No one 'deserves' to be beaten and robbed at a drive-through ATM, no matter the time of day.

Kendra did a great job with Dexter last week as well!
