Pain & Wastings

IMG_1685

Pain & Wastings | Nickname | An insulting, dismissive, and not particularly imaginative nickname for the intersection of Main and Hastings, the heart of the Downtown Eastside. Because, you know…the people there are wasted and/or in pain. Get it? One must travel far from the neighbourhood to find anyone who uses the term.

Usage: “Stop calling it Pain & Wastings, man. You sound like a teenager from Whalley…”explore-the-lexicon
