Ok Tim Hortons, we…need to talk.
You’re like a billion dollar company right? So why can’t you make a lid where the pull back tab thingy stays down? Seriously, you’re Tim F’n Hortons. Why can’t you design a lid where your customer can confidently pull back the tab, clip it in to the little tab compartment, and take a sip of coffee without fearing the tab snapping back and spraying coffee all over their face?? And yes, I am speaking from experience! I would say 80% of the time I end up with coffee on either my face or shirt from that stupid little coffee catapult of doom.
I need to give credit to my cousin Andrew for the trick of stuffing the tab back IN to the cup after you pull it back. This method works great because not only does it not attack you, it also prevents coffee from spilling out if you’re walking or driving and saves you from those embarrassing coffee stains on your white shirt…and face. Before this method, I used to barbarically rip the tab off out of anger and frustration.
Ok, next grievance comes from my friend Rachel, which I agree with her 100% on this one. Why do you insist on lining up the drinky hole with the seam of the cup? Yes, drinky hole. Her words, not mine. It’s almost as if you enjoy seeing a bunch of cranky, sleep deprived, hung over people on a monday morning struggle with your stupid lids. Is that part of the training process? Line up the seam with the drinky hole blindfolded? It happens all the time! How hard can it be to come up with a new design?
Yes Tim Hortons, it’s time for a change.
P.S. Love your coffee!…now can someone please pass me a Tide Pen?…speaking of products that don’t work…
