Timmie, I love you and I’m sorry

I do think you should put on a couple more cashiers though.

I do think it wouldn’t hurt though to add an extra cashier or two to get those lines moving.

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.

As an early Baby Boomer, born in 1947, it seems to me that as we approach our retirement years, Boomers have gone from being the energy driving our nation to slowly becoming invisible. We risk losing our identity as society remains stubbornly youth-centric. And the irony is that Gen Xers and Ys are not the majority; we are. BOOMERBROADcast is my platform for being the voice of Baby Boomers, women in particular. We've generated a lot of changes over the decades but there's still a long way to go. After a 40-year career in the corporate world, I've taken up expressing the observations and concerns of our generation. Instead of pounding the pavement in my bellbottoms with a cardboard sign, I'm pounding my laptop (I learned to type on a manual typewriter and old habits die hard). If you have issues or concerns you would like voiced or have comments on what I've voiced, I'd love to hear from you. We started breaking the rules in the sixties and now that we're in our sixties it's no time to become complacent. Hope you'll stay tuned and if you like BOOMERBROADcast, share it with your friends. Let's rock n' roll! If you would like to be notified whenever I publish a new posting, click on the little blue box in the lower right of your screen that says +Follow→ Lynda Davis
