About twenty minutes ago, I experienced something life changing.
I'm about to get off work at Tim Horton's (A donut joint for those who don't know). I'm eyeing the clock nervously. It was 11:57 and I had three minutes before my shift was over so that I could walk across the street to get one of those fucking giant gallon jugs of Mountain Dew for ten cents or some shit like that.
You know it's trouble when you seen an entire family in a BMW coming into the parking lot of a donut shop at noon. Two kids walk in, one skeletal mother, and one ancient and frail father, straight out of a GQ of twenty-five years ago, probably making six figures.
I never knew that anyone would spend $27 at a donut shop. I didn't think it was possible. I'd been working five days, straight through the weekend, and this caught me slightly off guard. A sprite, a can of iced tea, a bottled water, a chai tea, three sandwiches, and, oh yeah, the skeletal mother is on Atkins or some shit so she wants her chicken club without a bun.
They probably could have gone to an actual restaurant and gotten four sandwiches (one without a bun, asshole!) and it could have been faster and better prepared. But it's just so convenient to get it overpriced and have it appear to me made quick, who cares what it costs?
And now, cruel irony: I wasn't even supposed to be there today!
I love people.

Is it even physicly possible to eat a sandwich without a bun? Isn't that called a salad? Where exactly is the boundary between "salad" and "breadless sandwich"? Has the world really gone that mad?
This reminds me of somebody who was at the Green Midget café at Bromley one day asking for egg, bacon, spam and sausage without the spam. People are awesome!
What do you mean you don't like Spam!?
