Please people.... stop this madness and don't blame me for being of Black and White only which I am not.
None of you have really met me and know me for who I am and what a personality I can be and I can tell you all that I am one of the most genuine people on this planet who loves all and everybody for who they are and what they are, but believe me, discrimination is huge in this country. It doesn't matter who you are, it is all about HOW much you can mean for them money-wise!
It is all about short term profit, short term this and short term that and truly hardly any respect by any of those on power for the average Joe and Jane on the street and in most layers of the society who work hard to have a better life.
Most of you who are holding a MBA degree or a whole bunch of other high degree's should go and get a job at a hotel, at a department store, at any other store, at a restaurant and as receptionist and a cleaner at any company as to realize what I am talking about!!!!
I was having my own office back home in the Netherlands, I was always hiring people who I got to know during a fun chit chatty interview and I had a lot of fun with colleagues and people I met and I 've seen how everybody was treated equally at work. I myself did not accept people who were against others or isolating others just because they didn't like somebody and disgusted their behavior and did something about it, I got here and I went through some real *censored word* and gutter to see how big fat ugly people treat skinny little humble intelligent and oh so kind people like dirt and how much they do NOT care abou them and now you are all talking about me making such a major shift from A to Z?
NO way ... I am still the same Charlotte and so much the same person who shall encourage everybody who wants to live a real good life and achieve his/her goals and raise a family in a better place, but if you can't handle being treated like dirt and/or at the lowest of the society and a nobody while you are somebody, then don't move here. Stay where you are!
Like I said, they are all after your money, this is why Canada is so strong and did survive the most severe recession ever not because there are good banking rules only, but because they lie to people, to come over here and get their money! ... all these 250.000 new immigrants each year bring in money and that is cash!! the best business you can do and it is a thriving business...YOUR MONEY!!!!!! it will be stalled in the banks, in the associations, in anywhere you go and you pay tens of fees and I don't know what to keep them satisfied and much of it goes unnoticed!
But like I said, I shall not accept being a nobody and say "yes sir, no sir" to a big fat horizontally hugely fat and wide white man who doesn't eye me worthy of a bit of appreciation and acts as if he is the god of I don't know where and women who I see here shop at Yorkville acting as if they are the goddesses and queens of I don't know where while they are just "nobody's" and have no idea how a Real Princess and a real Prince does act cause I have worked for them and I have seen people of Royal Blood all around me at work and none was acting so cheap and so inhumane and disrespecting others and always talk about others as if they are trash!
I go back to a place where there is real good old money and there are real good old rich people who drive a Volkswagen and wear Gap pants and don't care about Prada and/or Gucci and are just as fun as you and I are and to people who were having lunch with the Queen and who once at work, when I didn't came to sit in the room and lunch with them, were upset and told me " Charlotte, where are you? come upstaird, you are not allowed to sit on your own and lunch in solitude, you are just like us! come up girl"!!! and that in a palace... yes, a real palace and not one of these tacky Chinese real estate kind of zillion dollar homes in Thornhill or richmond Hill or Mount Pleasant and I don't know where ... full of tacky stuff!
I hate that ... call me a socialist and a stupid gal who was not prepared enough to come here, I was not stupid and I was very well prepared and I did know what I exactly was doing, but I didn't know how "sick" Canadian society from inside is because I was always a tourist and not one of the slaves behind closed doors!
I am sure this is the same case in many other places on this planet and even worse elsewhere, but I am not to judge on that since I am a spoiled rich European girl who woke up and has no intentions what so ever to ever come back to Canada!
And please if you ever visit a shop and/or any public establishment and want to buy something, have respect for the associates and only pick the kind people, those who like me always smile, always are fun and try to be a real person regardless of all and help them to survive.
The competition out there is killing and so severe only the Evil ones can survive it!
Yesterday at The Bay store here on Bloor street, I was buying some stuff for my Mom and this woman who never said "hello" to me and was even so rude to once stand up and sit elsewhere during lunch break in the cafeteria when I went to have my lunch and keep her good company, suddenly was so friendly and asking me to buy my stuff there because I know that those working at certain departments like cosmetics are on commission and their floor manager is a roughless woman who fires them with no pardon if they don't reach their target and I told her that she would have better learn of her own attitude and be a friendly friend next time she has a seasonal colleague like me because now I am a customer and I am not going to buy from her, but from the Afghan girl next to her who despite all always is smiling and was kind to me!
This is Canada... if you can survive it, you do. I won't ...I can't survive this and I long to a place with a real history, a soul and a spirit and people who may not be that friendly like me, but believe me, those who do discriminated me and I met were mostly those from Eastern European countries!!!!
Next time I hire, when I have a similar job in the Netherlands, you bet I won't hire anybody from those places I 've seen here who treated me like trash!
But I shall hire people from India, China, Philippines and a few other nations that I met and were oh so kind to me and are so kind to me to this day.
I don't know ... don't blame me for being black and white, but be realistic yourself! ... don't jump into something you can't afford or handle, just because everybdoy says it is good.
It is all some huge marketing power behind it all and like shown yesterday, Vancouver and Toronto are again ranked among top 5 best cities on this planet to live and I can now tell, after 6 months of life here in a lovely neighborhood in Toronto, that it won't be ranked among my top 50 best cities of this planet personally!
But sure among the worst top 5!!!
Real Estate and yes, attracting new immigrants to a new promised land, needs a good Marketing force too... believe it, buy it and get yourself to Canada, a place where its 5 major cities are among Top 5 of the entire planet!!!!
