Tim Hortons in 3 quarters this year has made $280 million in profits. Congratulations to their shareholders.
Did you notice the "do not litter" request made by Tim Horton's on each coffee cup?
As I was getting my coffee this morning, I noticed this:
Not uncommon. Go to any Tim Hortons, and take a look. People accidentally drop cigarette butts where they order food and Tim Hortons continually does not clean them up.
Making 280 million in 3 quarters, asking us not to litter, then demonstrating the seriousness of their request by housing their property like pigs? Does this piggy attitude extend to how they handle our food? If habits are a discipline based on a mindset, then what mindset enables Tim Horton's to 'care' about our food, when they do not 'care' about their property? This is something people should be outraged by.
How can a company make 280 million in 3 quarters and not afford to be consistent with a request they make to us in cleaning up their own litter? Option 1, remove "please do not litter" from all cups. Option 2, clean up mess. Whatever choice you make, be consistent.
What if every person said, "I'm not buying a coffee from Tim's until you practise what you preach"? Bet your bottom dollar they would have the place spotless in 24 hours. Do you mind the disgusting garbage at Tim's? Do you mind them telling us (on a coffee cup we pay for) not to litter while tolerating it on their very property? We should mind. They are asking us to play by a different set of rules (be disciplined and steward property well) that they themselves continually ignore….after all, it cost money to pay for someone to clean.
I hereby make Jan. 20th "Clean up you litter, then I'll buy a coffee" day at every Tim Hortons. If Canada kept the stores empty for 1 day, we would be driving into a clean Tim Hortons. The choice is ours.
