I have officially found the biggest shithole in Canada and it even has a name, Calgary Alberta. As some of you may know I got hired on a 15 week contract that started on March 4th by the city of Calgary. I always heard Calgary had wild weather but didn't think it could be too bad working 12 hours a day 6-7 days a week outside. Man was I wrong. I don't think there is a place on this planet that has shittier weather. In total there has been only a few days so far we could take off our jacket without freezing, and it snows and blizzards about 2/6 of our work days EVERY week. Fuck this place, does summer even exist here?! I went home to B.C. twice and it was +30 celcius and I can still only make it a couple KM's up the mtn without getting stuck in a few feet of snow.
It's not only the weather here that makes me go insane, I can't stand driving around here. Never in my life have I seen such complete fucking idiots in a vehicle attempt to drive. As soon as the roads even see the slightest sign of snow theres skid marks ALL over every single median and boulevard a car could possibly loose control and hit and you have to constantly dodge peices of plastic bumpers and fenders from people smashing into each other. Every vehicle in the parking lot at work has some sort of sign that they smashed into something, it's unreal. They might as well put on blind folds and "drive by feel", there would probably be less accidents..
I also can't stand going to get grocerys or go into any kind of store, me and the guys from work walk into a store and its like we've been sent to the middle fucking east. All these brownies look at us like "what the fuck are you doing here, this is our store..". Since when the fuck should I feel out of place in my own country?! What has this place come to? This place is home to one of the highest crime rates in Canada, due to the high number of immigants here, I don't care what anybody says..
The bitches here also drive me nuts. 90% of them are ugly and apple assed and they walk around and act like they're better than everybody because there sucking somebodys cock from the oilfeilds that thinks he's a high roller because they got themselves into debt nuts deep and have a bunch of toys.
Fuck this place, I cannot wait till this contract is done so I can NEVER come back.

You try to buy bacon and pork chops while in there store?
Edmonton is not much better. They roll up the sidewalks at 4pm
Ever go to Quebec? That one is tough for me, I speak no french. I can read some now, menus & road signs anyway.
Went to Humbolte SK this week, With the public transportation system there it took me 2 days to get out of there. Rental car from Saskatoon to Minot ND then return the first car to SK as there was no other place to return it. then back to ND to return the second car. then a third car to Minnesota. spent 2 and a half days driving back and forth, 4 border crossings to finely get out of there. Bus would have been a 2 day ride to Winnipeg and I would have then still had to jockey cars to get out.
I'm loosing my mind, but as long as I keep the part that tells me when I gotta pee I should be OK.
