This morning I decided to repair a burnt out light bulb and get breakfast. With a Home Depot and a Tim Horton's (50 Red Maple Road, Richmond Hill) in the same plaza, I could fuel up for a day of handiness.
In entered the Tim Horton's shortly after 8 A.M. this morning and walked up to the cashier and ordered with no line up.
The Order: 1 Medium Black Coffee and 1 Cinnamon Raisin Bagel with regular Cream Cheese.
The cashier looked completly tired and uninterested in serving a customer. She merely went through the motions and definatly not sounding cheery or helpful at all. I grabbed my coffee and headed to the bakery section for my bagel.
At the bakery section next to the drive thru there were four workers. 1 was refilling the cream cheese, 1 was preparing my bagel and the other two were working the drive thru. Things seemed a little more promising here. They repeated my order back to me as they handed it to me and ensured I had everything.
I ventured over in search of a clean table. Interestingly there wasn't any to be found. Yes there were tables available, but all of them had crumbs on them and/or coffee stains. None of the tables looked like they had been cleaned today let alone late yesterday.
I settled into one table and ate my usual Tim Horton's bagel and coffee, everything tasted satisfactory like it would of at any other Tim Horton's.
Upon leaving, I noticed the two workers at the bakery were standing talking to each other. The cashier I had placed my order with was tidying up her work area. I shook my head that none of them had a cloth in their hands and cleaning the tables. Obviously, the manager was gone as all the employees didn't seem to know the customer tables were a mess.
