Ok, I was going to post this in my NY trip thread..but this deserves a rant of it's own.
Just over the border we noticed there were Timmy's restaurants.wooHoo! a
Little Canada in NY.
So we go in..and order a LARGE double double.
OK so it comes in this HUGE cup.
"Um..excuse me miss..but I ordered a large..."
She says.."That is a large.."
In Canada..that large is called EXTRA Large.
In the US..It is a large.
WTF Is an EXTRA large Timmy's In NY?Half the pot of coffee?
Iam radically annoyed.Timmy's is Completely Canadian..and we are getting ripped off IMHO.
What the Hell?
Somebody please explain....
It is actually just business. How many Americans goto Tim Horton's everyday? and How many Canadians? If they were to give those same sizes in Canada
then they will lose money. No one is complaining(other then you)because we get our coffee and they get their money.
Have you been to a Starbucks? Those guys charge 3-4 bucks and you have to put the sugar and milk in yourself!
I am going to stick to my Tim Horton's thank you very much.
I bet it's part of the FDAs plan to kill us all off as young as possible. I mean, if it's twice the size it's twice as poisonus right? Why else is
McDonalds still legal after Supersize me? It's profitable for the government to raise as many of us as possible (hence all the sex in the media), get
us in the workforce asap, and kill us off before we're a burden on them.
