I may have mentioned here that I stopped at the drive up of my favorite Tim Horton’s a couple weeks ago. Menu board lit up. No sign anything was amiss. I waited, and waited. Another car pulled up behind me. Waited some more. Then there were four cars lined up behind me. I gave up and pulled out of the drive-up lane. Drove past it last night. Menu board still lit up, but no cars in line.
This is the Tim’s/Wendy’s dual I have mentioned before, the one that closed the dining room as soon as school started in September.
Checked the Tim’s web site today. That store in now officially closed. The “JC” must have been so short of help that he added any remaining people from the Tim’s side to the Wendy’s side.
I don’t like using the drive up at that Wendy’s, because they keep getting my order wrong. I order the expensive grilled chicken sandwich, get home, unwrap it, and find they gave me the cheap sandwich instead.
My former favorite Wendy’s closed entirely last spring, and has not reopened.
The last time I used the other Tim’s close to home, I ate in the dining room. The place was filthy. YUK!
I’m down to the two Arby’s, fully staffed with both drive-up and dining room open, but they can’t get the roasted turkey for several of their products that I like. And there is Mickey D’s, dining room and drive up both open, and the place is clean, but their only edible product uses beef.
As you say, fast food does not attract the sharpest tools. Food service is always at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to jobs. When the “jobs” market is short of bodies, it’s the operations at the bottom that get the worst people available, including, it seems, the “JCs” that run the local Wendy’s and Tim’s, preferring to go out of business, rather than compete for workers.
Ground turkey might be more available, because it can be made from the little bits of meat that are dug out of the crannies of the bones. The products Arby’s sells are sliced turkey, meaning there needed to be a big slab of breast for them to slice.
