I am a new comer to this city. I have got help from many kindly people in the street. But I also met some pests.
Yesterday such a mad woman destroyed my happy shopping with my daughter totally. My anger lasted till night.
At about 5 pm I was going to do some shopping at Toyrus . I went into the washroom at Eglington subway. I had just locked the door behind me , then I heard a woman shouting at me outside ' give me some toilet paper". I had taken for granted that she wanted me to give her some paper, maybe because there was no toilet paper at other side.
"OK", I replied very gently,"Wait for a minuter".
But she kept knocking at the door and yelled. When I went out, she shouted at me " you stole my toilet paper".
I was astonished. I am a university teacher. I had never heard such a serious word on me before. Although I have some reason to guessed that she is insane .But she must be normal mentally, otherwise she should be sent to mental asylum.
She had no evidence, how can she claim that I steal something?
yes , Toronto is a big city. It has many beautiful park and greenland. But why Torontonian be more nice in bahavoir to be fit for the beautiful scenery?
Should I hate this city or like it ?

I come from a country whereby everyone loves one another and takes care of one another. To me Torontonians only appear to be kind people, but are arrogant when it comes to being loving and caring.

Secondly, in this country many people are insane but appear to be sane. Observe some people on the TTC and other public places, and you shall see what I mean.

Overall I can't say that I am not happy here, coz I am, but this place is just different and should not be compared to home in all aspects.

Otherwise, I am an international student here.

You shouldn't hate Toronto based on the actions of a few people- remember we are a city of over 3 million.

Is this a joke?
How can a 'university professor' be so IGNORANT!?
Judging an entire city based on one woman who you could tell was unwell...and 'mental asylum'?? Because people who are suffering should be locked up and hidden away because you have no compassion??

You are loooking for a major city to be perfect based on its scenery, and wishing peoples rights to be taken because you couldn't take one person with an illness..
Go back home lady.
