My loyalty to Tim Hortons has never been an issue. Ever since they came out with “steeped” tea (I’m not a coffee drinker) I’ve been a card-carrying member of the club, eagerly pulling up to the drive-thru to get my large or extra-large steeped tea with milk. It’s served so hot I can’t drink it for at least 20 minutes. Then I slowly start sipping to test the waters. I can make a cup last about two or three hours and by then I’m madly looking for a washroom.
However, I broke our bond of loyalty when I recently sold my shares in Tim Hortons after sitting on them for about ten years. Warren Buffet advised me to only buy stock in products I know and like. That’s why I bought Timmie’s stock. And it generated a nice little dividend. Then I got greedy. It looked like my greedy banker stocks were doing better so I decided to sell my Timmie’s shares and use the money to buy more dividend-paying greedy bank stocks.
But Timmie got his revenge. A couple of weeks ago Burger King purchased Tim Hortons resulting in the value of Tim Horton’s shares going through the roof. Would you consider letting me rescind my sale? I know I was wrong but my years of loyalty must be worth something. I’ll even withdraw that complaint I made the other day about waiting twenty minutes in your lineup. From now on I promise to be loyal til death do us part. Thank you.
