I was very curious to see what type of person it was.

Clueless elderly? Young DB? Entitled Karen?

Why stop at lighter fluid? Give him the old New York's Finest Taxi Service treatment.

Similar thing happened to me. We didn’t need to leave immediately and didn’t know who the vehicle belonged to. Left a note with my phone number. Went back inside and shortly later car was moved and I received a nice apology via text.

I first read this as you getting bumped to Rogue One and I was thinking that's awesome!

But to my original point; when that stock was $28, it was a pure homerun. Excellent profit margins, negligible debt and a huge brand that people loved. Literally all of that is gone now.
The decline of Tim Hortons is kind of unfortunate because there was a time we could proudly say it our brand. They have tried to turn a donuts shop into a restaurant and it just hasn't worked. They don't have grilles and deep fryers to properly cook a lot of the food they serve as their food is all microwaved and put in heating bins. The thought of beyond meat patties sitting in a heating bin for ages makes my stomach turn. Their food is bad, really, really bad and I'm surprised that people are still lining up to pay $$ for food that is prepared like this. I think the worst thing about the food is that it's bogged down the ordering process to the point that the original customers that came in for a coffee and doughnut have been pushed aside while fast food lovers (who else eats this kind of food daily?) slow the ordering process down to a crawl. It's just not worth lining up to the door for a mediocre coffee and mediocre doughnut when in less time you can walk into a McDonald's and walk out with a coffee that's arguably superior and breakfast food that's considerably superior. Tim Hortons as they are today doesn't make sense and I feel that the only thing really keeping the bottom from completely falling out is that for a lot of Canadians it's a habitual thing. It's almost like we are a nation programmed to stop there in the morning but that won't last as we have seen erosion over the past few years and while they did a great job in their advertising convincing the country that it's some patriotic duty to visit them nothing last forever especially when the product is substandard.

I disagree that McDonalds breakfasts are better. The Tim's version of the mcmuffin with the biscuit instead of the english muffin is clearly superior. There shouldn't be any debate about flaky biscuit > english muffin. It's not really their breakfasts that are the problem, it's their lunch stuff (outside of the chicken noodle soup).

I don't know that their doughnuts have changed, either. I'm pretty sure they've stayed the same, and that the general quality of baked goods available has risen and left them behind.

I probably agree that I'd prefer if Tim's sold only doughnuts, bagels, muffins (and none of the ones with the crap filling inside them, #### right off with those), biscuit breakfast sandwiches, chicken noodle soup, coffee (no lattes, and God help you if you serve anything with the word "pumpkin" anywhere near it) and iced caps because apparently those generate a bunch of money. Of course, the problem with this theory is that no one would ever go to Tim's after 10:00 a.m. except to buy an iced cap, and I don't think enough people go before as it is to really make the whole thing viable.

Except when the biscuit is some dry ass lump of crap like they are at Tim Horton's.

McDonald's breakfast walks Tim Horton's breakfast. The Egg McMuffin is king.

Tim's sucks. Always.

The traffic on the #1 yesterday afternoon grinds my gears. Apparently this is the new normal? I'm usually on the morning or whole weekend program so I haven't experienced the Sunday afternoon driver phenomenon around Calgary lately. We came to a complete stop numerous times heading both direction and it took an extra 45 mins to get to the park gates. No accident or construction, just road volume resulting in bumper to bumper rush hour traffic for 100km.

Where did all the people come from? Hopefully going outdoors becomes less trendy again soon and I can go back to driving places at reasonable speeds again.

Bold claim here, but A&W > McDonalds (>>>>>> Tim Hortons, of course).

Anyone who thinks a dry-ass biscuit is better than an English muffin is a nazi, but something about the use of a burger bun just works.

Iím not huge on the burger bun... but if you go inside they will fry you up some eggs for cheap. Option of toast OR pancakes to complete the breakfast blew my mind. Their coffee is the worst of the 3 though.

No. The bun at A&W totally ####s up the bread to ingredients ratio of a breakfast sandwich, it's just way too much bread. The english muffin breakfast sandwiches at A&W are much better than their bun ones.

I have A&W as the same as McD's. Its "different" and I like to switch between them.

#### outta here with a biscuit though.

Apparently people have strong opinions on their breakfast sandwich bread choices... I agree that A&W beats McDonalds for basic breakfast sandwiches, but not because of the burger bun... get that out of here. It's just that A&W's english muffins are fresher and moister than McDonalds's tend to be. On the other hand, McDonalds bagel sandwiches are better than both - everything egg BLT with cheese is really quite good.

Between the two, A&W wins overall on breakfast because of their actual breakfast, from where I sit.

Yeah, a burger bun for breakfast is terrible. English muffins are great, and actual decent biscuits are great as well, which really has nothing to do with what Tims serves. I will also admit to ordering a McGriddle occassionally, but am trying to keep my heart attack risk down so don't do that often.

Why doesn't everyone get their Tim's breakfast sandwich on a croissant? That's the only reason it's any good.
