A listener looks for advice from you

We received this email from Tracey this morning. She needs your help.

Hey guys,

Where's Moya? I have a question. I just finished my undergrad degre at Dalhousie and am going to grad school in the fall. I need a place to live near campus. My guy friend and his friend need a third roommate to lower their costs. I will have my own room, of course. I want to live with them, but I'm engaged. My fiancé will be leaving for UNB and is 4 and 1/2 hours away. He says it's out of the question to live with guys. What do you and your listeners think?

Fireworks Sale Ban

The city councillor for Fairview Clayton Park wants to see a ban on the sale of fireworks in the HRM. Russel Walker plans to ask council to have staff draw up a bylaw proposal that would ban the sale of fireworks within city limits. Walker says it's a safety issue and he says he has received many calls from people complaining about fireworks being set off at all hours of the day and night. And, although fireworks can't be legally sold to people under the age of 18, Walker says young people are getting their hands on them.

Care to comment? Is a ban going to far? Are you tired of hearing fireworks in your neighbourhood?

Too Young For Batman

Here's an email we received on the weekend. Care to comment?

"Consider this. You've paid $10 for the ticket to see The Dark Knight, $10 for the popcorn and you've threaded your way to the seat your friends have been fighting to save for you. You get settled to enjoy the movie, one you've been dying to see. Then it happens -- the crying baby, the kid asking their parents questions, the foot kicking your chair.
Isn't this a PG rated movie? Isn't it past their bedtime? It seems like no curfew is necessary when parents are bringing their kids to adult movies.
Where are the boundaries? There are adults' films and kids' films. I never consider having a drink and going to see Hannah Montana with a theater full of tween-age girls because that would be inappropriate. It is equally inappropriate to bring a small child and expect that they will understand or appreciate the film they are seeing.
So what does a parent do when they want to see The Dark Knight? You consider that not every moviegoer is interested in being your babysitter. Leave the kids at home -- and, for that matter, think before you let your preteens go on their own.

Yesterday we asked you if for your vacation this summer you are travelling to a family or friends house to save money on expenses. 61% of respondents said no.

World's Worst Tourists

Congratulations Americans! You are no longer the world’s most obnoxious tourists. Not even close. A survey of employees at some 4,000 European hotels reveals that the Chinese have taken over the #1 spot in this category, followed closely by Indians and French. They are all stereotyped as loud, argumentative, and cheap. The French are also reprimanded for unwillingness to attempt local languages and outright refusal to tip. On the other hand, the Japanese take top honors as most quiet, polite, and tidy tourists; followed by Germans, Brits, and Canadians.

This is a question for hotel employees and waiters and waitresses, past and present What's the rudest thing a guest/customer has ever done on your shift?
