So you might be asking yourself, “Self, I wonder why I keep getting inconsistent service at Tim Hortons?” I mean, Tim Horton’s ordering strategy doesn’t involve much complexity, unlike Starbucks. Take my particular order: A bagel and 1 extra large double double (two cream, two sugar). There isn’t much room to screw up, but it still happens.
Since most employed in the lower mainland Tim Hortons seem to be Filipino, my proposal is to introduce a Taglish order translator.
You say: Could I please have a buttered bagel with an extra large double double?
It translates: 1 beigel wid margirin, 1 coppie dobol dobol.
You say: 1 bran muffin and an english toffie.
It translates: Bran Mahpin and english toppie.
Bad idea? Yea, I know. Blog fodder is lacking these days, but I refuse to go on hiatus. Refuse I tell ya!
In other news, my limping server finally decided to die yesterday (which is why the site was down). I, however, had different plans. After a new harddrive, a new power supply and a reinstall of the operating system, everything seems to be working (again).
