2. Actually have legit plan... or get some feedback from staffs that actually have to do it. Instead of "Oh! ***** is doing it, so it'll work for us." 9 out of 10 times, it doesn't.
3. Don't make a procedures/rules that fits it all. Cuz every branch and main are different. They expect us to do EXACTLY as it's written in the procedures.

Especially #3. They want patrons to park their car (where the numbers are assigned) in parking space. From there, call us to pick up their holds. I work at the downtown (main) & all the parking space is underground. Sadly underground parking doesn't get no service. So they decided to used 3 parking space (which is front of delivery/unload zone), which require to do parallel park. Make things worse, it's downtown. Downtown parallel parking space is tight! I have seen good amount of ppl hit front or rear car while trying to parallel park that spot.

It's not gonna end well... so I replied to their all staff email "If you guys can't parallel park, how do you expect patron to parallel park?"

We'll see if I still have job on Monday lol
Well, I'd suggest that they just make ONE pickup spot out of that area.

Or make 2... leaving middle one empty, so less chance of wreck. Which ive mentioned in the email. We’ll see if they listen or continuous wrecks.

Only time will tell

Side note. Bought CF skinning Kit. Interested to try em out. & yes, I know skinning is different from wet or dry cf. I’ll get into that later. Gotta start from easier stuff first

I don't get it. The cop got arrested for murder (and it is possible his knee may not have been the COD). I think the real problem is we created a second class of "non-essential" citizens that have nothing else better to do than participate in some anarchy..

I think there is a little more to it then that. It happened on the 25th and they didn't charge and arrest him until the 30th. So there is the perception that it wasn't going to come to justice. This is also the 3rd excessive force death nationally publicized recently, twice by police and once by some armed citizens.

Not my opinion, but this is what I gather by reading the comments in the dredges of society known as Facebook. The whole "no justice no peace" seems to be the new movement.

The sad part is that once his trial is over the whole thing will blow wide open again no matter what the verdict.
Guilty - "see this is rampant and the sentence is not harsh enough (no matter what it is)". Riot, loot and burn.
Not guilty - "see the system protects the guilty". Riot, loot and burn.


Although this happened during the covid era the results probably would have ben the same even if covid had never been heard of. This quasi justification of "people have been in lockdown too long" is just an attempt to rationalize things.

After being very pro cop for a long time, this incident finally opened my eyes to it.

It's not the fact that every cop is a murderer. It's the fact that for every cop who is a bad apple, there are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50+ cops who won't say a word when they see something wrong.

There were 3 other cops, and a parks officer on scene when George Floyd was murdered by a cop (who also has a storied history of killing minorities and has a dozen police brutality complaints against him) and none of them stepped in.

Complicity IS support.

You say it is a fact. Some supporting documentation? That wasn't written by somebody with an agenda.

Oh boy, a simple misphrasing of something.

What does it say to you that there were 4 other peace officers on scene who watched as Floyd took his last breaths and didn't say or do a thing?

I have enough cop friends to know that they don't tell on each other.

Over 40 million unemployed Americans is definitely playing a part.

I'm a bit disappointed by your 'Devils advocate' responses. The US system is broken and Canada's isn't terribly different.
