  • TIM HORTON'S ....Revisited

    ....So I'm on my way to work the other morning and am about to go through that Canadian Ritual ...the Tim Horton's Drive-Through . We don't call 'em Dryv-Thru or some such thing in Canada , eh ?

    ....Wow , the line looks pretty small , in fact , I'm SECOND in line ....guess I should be thinking Lottery Ticket today ...

    .....but wait , the car ahead is a Grand Marquis , and .....uh , oh , a TAN one . Teejay knows that to legally drive a Tan Grand Marquis in Canada , one needs to be about 110 years old ....and there are TWO little old ladies in the car , so tiny they can barely see above the wheel in that massive interior . Trouble !

    " good morning , welcome to Tim Hortons , how...

    TIMBITS!!id="size3">id="red">

    ...pardon?

    PHWATTT ?id="size4">id="red">

    .....would you like coffee?

    LARGE TIMBITS !id="size5">id="red">

    ( I continue to wait for my FIRST coffee of the day )

    ...."what kind would you like , ma'am ?

    CHOCOLATE !id="size6">id="red">

    ....so , 40 Chocolate Timbits ...

    TWO !id="size6">id="red">

    ...n'kay , 2 Chocolate , what other kinds ?

    PHWATT ?id="size6">id="red">

    ...YOU HAVE 38 MORE TO GO , WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ?

    ( I CONTINUE to wait for my first ...morning ...coffee :erm: )

    HOW ...HOW ...MANY DO WE HAVE ?id="size6">id="red">

    ...you have 2 ma'am ...38 to go .

    ( coffee , help , gag , sputter )

    FOUR...FOUR CHOCOLATE !id="size6">id="red">


    ......you get the picture , this went on for several minutes until they reached the magic number ...THEN they had a hard time finding change , dropped some on the floor of the car .

    Denying someone their FIRST MORNING COFFEE should carry a LONG JAIL TERM !

    Have a good one !!

    G'd morning Terry,

    Tim's is great for a morning coffee, but even the competition has lineups... :-)

    I don't know if we could model this coffee shop without getting a lot of flack.

          Sorry, I'm not Canadian, but I live pretty close, and I know a thing or two about donuts

          Seems like whatever time of day you go to the local Tim Hortons, even at 3 AM, there's a line at the drive-through.

          I haven't seen a Donutland in about 20 years, first Dunkin Donuts came and chased all the Donutlands away and then Tim's got rid of the DD's. Now Krispy Kreme is trying to do the same. Nobody knows donuts like canadian hockey players though.
          Cheers,

            That is a *great* shot. I actually did a spit take.

            Now *I* need some more coffee!

              Terry, that is now two keyboards!!! I will be sending you out an invoice for the latest wrecked keyboard when I accidently laughed up my evening tea on to it!!! After your Walmart experience, this is just too funny. Man I hate those ruddy drive through speaker things. Too funny

              Nothing beats Tims, Krispy Kremes suck! Too bad our American friends don't have the pleasure - or maybe they do - is Tims into the US yet??? They must be somewhere. Great coffee, and those glazed cinnimon buns - just to die for.....just too hard to resist.

              Gotta run, the Trailer Park Boys Christmas Special is on in half an hour and there is no way I want to miss that. There is Canadian culture at its best!!![:-angel]

              Make mine Tims![}]

                Yup we have Tim's in the US, They've been in Buffalo since the 70's. Probably because Tim was playing for the Sabres at the time.

                They have started building Tim's/Wendy's combos here now. Mmmm, a nice wendy's triple and a donut to wash it down, doesn't get much better.
                Cheers,

                  Too funny Terry! Have you ever tried the one in Belle River in the morning (I know it's going the wrong way for you)? :erm: :erm:

                    I went through the Belle River one ONCE , for an Ice Cap in the summer . I think the line holds 3 cars before you spill out onto the street .

                    BTW , Jim , did you see where the local Krispy Kreme went tits up ? Go figure ! I hear they still sell them at WallMart ....probably now handled by those same two women that I had the 'adventure' with when buying tree foliage for my ' Toy Trains '

                        Here you go guys, a shot from the Muskoka Model Railroad Club's N Scale Portable "show" layout.



                        Although the photo is not good, the sign on the building says Tim Horton's (taken from a sugar packet).

                          Hey , Will , maybe you should have about 10 'black and white' N scale cars in Tim's just for a fun picture . I expect that all the lp's from that background area frequent TH's quite regularly !

                            Well, that is not a good picture, but there are 2 Black and white police cars, the two all black cars have red lights on top (we have since painted them into black and white units). Also the 2 trucks are public works vehicles.

                              Just for the people that didn't know - Tim Hortons is owned by Wendy's. It is an American franchise.

                              We do seem to have more stores in Canada but that maybe because we eat more donuts the our American freinds.
