Hello again! I beg your pardon for my absence but it seems I’m starting to finally have a bit of a life again & I am quite enjoying it! I also had a hard time figuring out something to talk about for this blog entry but it popped up in my head just a few minutes ago – so now I’m typing this. Hoorah? So I have had six more page views since I last checked on this which is slow but still okay for me. Now that Facebook is working again I plan on getting this blog some more well-deserved attention. I just hope that soon I’ll eventually gain some followers.
I’m going to talk about monopolies today, like Tim Horton’s, Wendy’s, Arby’s etc, about how backwards their thinking is when it comes to introducing new politics. I’m going to focus in more on Tim Horton’s because since I work there, I know a little bit more about it.
So we got in some new bagels – Maple Cinnamon French Toast, Sundried Tomato, yadda yadda so on & so forth - & as such we had to get rid of some. The ones we got rid of were the Wheat N’ Honey & Blueberry bagels (which made me really sad because I love the Wheat N Honey bagels). They’re two of the most popular bagels at our store & I can’t help but wonder what they were thinking when they got rid of the two popular ones. I could understand getting rid of the ones that don’t sell as much, like sesame seed bagels or the plain bagels. One would think that you would lose more business if you got rid of peoples favorite menu items & force them into buying a new product. It shouldn’t be all about the money but customer satisfaction. The more satisfied your customer the more likely they’ll continue to buy at your store, right? I guess people don’t really think about those things once they’re making a lot of money. It makes me sad really.
So the question of the day is: What do you hate about our society today?
For me, I’m always sickened by people who always have to have the latest technology. They spend thousands of dollars upgrading from version 1.0 to 1.1 or 1.5 because it’s the ‘newer’ product. I’ve had the same phone for about a year now & I’m still as happy with it as I was from day one. My computer on the other hand tends to piss me off with how slow it is, but that’s my fault since I’m not that educated on a computers basic needs.
So just post your comments on the bottom or inbox them to me. I’d be happy to hear from you.
Thanks for reading!
