Of all the places to have a debate about Pineapple on Pizza, you'd never expect it on the social business platform LinkedIn would you? Well that's what happened.
As I was with my friend ordering a drink at the cafe, the lady at the counter cheerfully asked, "So would you like almond, soy, skim, or full cream milk with that?" My friend, looking as confused as ever, asked what the difference was, to which the lady recommended almond milk with his caramel thick-shake.
Man, I could really go for a "Pepper Don't Preach" burger. Unfortunately, not every fictional restaurant has become a reality. We have all gotten excited over the fictitious restaurants that have come true, but there are still plenty of potentially great establishments that continue to exist only in the realm of fantasy.
We have all been there. You are sitting there on the highway. You are surrounded by a sea of other cars. You cannot see any discernible reason as to why you and hundreds, perhaps thousands of other drivers are just sitting there. You might have hope for a few brief seconds when you slowly inch along, and then boom, you are sitting stationary once again!
It’s that time of year again where our capitalistic tendencies take over, and we watch ourselves indulge in spending money on meaningless things such as Pumpkin Spice Crest Toothpaste and Clorox Pumpkin Spice Bleach. I don’t indulge on anything laced with allspice or nutmeg because I’m a semi-normal individual that has values and boundaries. For those that don’t have any common decency left this is a good time of year for you.
When you’re as big a corporation as Starbucks, you’re bound to offend people from time to time. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the "Top 10 Starbucks Controversies."
Sometimes ladies and germs, it is more than perfectly acceptable to admit that someone (or in this case, something) is vastly superior to yourself (or in this case, your product). As a life coach, Tony Robbins has a far better track record, larger network plus more books released than me, and never is the amount of times you will catch me denying it. If Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was hitting on one of my beloved ladyfriends, I would be coming hard with a baseball bat or nearest object of destruction, because realistically, in what way (beside ability to make an ass of oneself) do I exceed The Rock? Hopefully in crazy if he ever does take fancy, and he is fond of North Florida trash, but as an intellectual would say, I digress. Another thing often said by intellectuals is repeat any lie enough times and some people are bound to believe it. I am left asking though, why in the name of all that is good would one sacrifice the intellect of your fellow human beings for mere profit when, if one is clever enough, another marketing strategy beyond lies and deceit can be crafted. Have we no desire for adherence to the truth any longer? An example: who amongst the upper echelon of society takes seriously an individual who believes Taco Bell to be the tastiest of all of the Mexican foods? When mentioning a social elite, I don't mean those whose bank accounts have numbers as high as myself on any given day, nay, when I say upper echelon, I refer to those who happen to have an abundance of traits such as grace, dignity, and/or taste.
It's officially that time of year for the autumn folk, those fall fevered pumpkin eaters who'd like to skip summer and do fall twice. I know I'm one of them, and I'm hankering for my favourite season already, even though Summer's just begun!
Ah, fast food. My old obsession. As I've said before, there's something to be admired about a restaurant that's so well-run, so beloved, that it's capable of spreading its grasp of a demographic from one coast to another. They are well-oiled machines that show how powerful marketing, good management, and a little bit of luck can be.
If you've read my articles about restaurant chains that no longer exist, or restaurants that are about to go extinct, you'd know I enjoy writing about fast food. It's an interesting topic, from both a food and social standpoint.
When I was a kid, before I even opened my eyes to wake up, I’d hear the crackling and sizzling sounds of a few strips of bacon being fried in a pan. I knew it was only a matter of time before the smell of hickory glory was going to reach the air around me. There is no better way to wake up than to the sound and smell of some mouthwatering bacon in the morning. To think that it was a scent becoming less and less frequently is to deny a sense of life itself.
