Day 35: Oh yes we did

The other night, the girls and I attended an activity for the young women at church.
I decided we should treat ourselves to some hot chocolate after.

A funny thing happened in Tim Hortons.
(It smells lovely inside, by the way)

Me: I'd like three small hot chocolates please.
Teenage employee: That'll be $3.79.
I hand over my Visa debit card.
Teenage employee: Oh, I'm sorry. We don't take Visa. Only MasterCard or Timmie(?)Cards
I've got $2 cash in my purse. I glance at the menu board and notice that an Extra Large hot chocolate is something like $1.25.
Me: I guess we'll just have an Extra Large.
Teenage employee: Do you want three small cups with it?

So I got what I ordered in the first place, but paid tell me if that makes any sense at all


  1. Interesting math up there in Canada. ;)

  2. If it means saving over 2 bucks on hot chocolate, it makes sense to me.

  3. That is awesome! You should find out what other vendors charge less for more depending on the way you order. :)
