I broke down and went to Timmy Ho’s this morning. They got MY order right. That made me happy. But I was still there a really long time waiting for my tea. Why? Well, the lady in front of me was a nutjob. She was either from out of town or (and?) had never been to a Tim Horton’s before. So she orders a “french cappuccino” from the girl at the register. The girl repeats “one French Vanilla Cappuccino” and the lady freaks out, NO! Not French Vanilla, a FRENCH CAPPUCCINO. The girl blinks and says, we have french vanilla or English Toffee. “Fine, English Toffee” *huff* she pays and goes to stand on the side to wait for her drink. I order, fast and efficiently and wait behind her. She then starts yelling at the guy making the beverages, “what are you doing? I don’t want flavoured coffee. I want a cappuccino! Put the cream on the side! Don’t put sugar in it! I can’t have sugar!” So the poor guy dumps her drink and starts again.. and again she starts to huff. Finally she says “FINE! What kind of FRENCH coffees do you have?” He says “we have French Vanilla” She then asked what kind of GOURMET coffees they had since he didn’t know what she was talking about.
Um, hello? Tim Hortons? Gourmet? Yeah, not exactly synonomous. The guy was all “we have decaf or regular coffee” *snort* HAHAH! So she took a large black regular coffee and huffed away. Retard.
[UPDATE] Tim Hortons.. think Dunkin’ Donuts a la Canadian style.
So I started that this morning.. since then.. I have been to French class, almost puked in the class and passed out from pain and then got back to the office 15 mins ago and phoned my GI’s office to make an appointment. I started off with “Hi, I generally make my June appointment this time of year, but I would really like to see Dr. W earlier since I am having a pretty bad time” and the really nice lady said “Oh, but we’re booking January now”. I replied with “January? Like, 2007??” And she said yes and said I could have an appointment on January 9th. “Like, 2007? and not 2008? So in, like, TWO MONTHS?” Yes. wooty woot!! That is AMAZING! Seriously, I was totally expecting April, ok? It’s been that bad the last 10 years and it was getting worse. I can not believe it’s only a two month wait. Assuming I still have whatever the problem is then it’s pretty cool. If I am better, whatever, I will tell him what was wrong, see if I can get an appointment for a scope (if I think I need one, because it’s not really my idea of a fun and exciting time) and then make my June appointment to renew my pills after I see him. If I am still having these problems by then, all the better. It’s only two months away. They will most likely phone and reschedule me at least once, because that happens all the time when I need to see him. But still… January, people. This is great!
I am half tempted to make an appointment with my GP as well, although she’ll just tell me to make an appointment with the GI, so I don’t know. We’ll see how bad I get. After thinking I was going to die in a movie theatre bathroom yesterday afternoon I figure, I need to see someone.
And other than that? I just have this to say: Weddings are NOT just an excuse to invite all your family to a huge karaoke party, ok? And one does not need to listen to recording upon recording of your friends and family singing karaoke tunes. Play the damn original song already. Really. Dude.
