A few things to ponder...
On a recent trip I pondered the following:
Should people be allowed to talk on cell phones during flights?
- I say no! Some people are loud enough w/o a cell phone; there are so many distractions - crying babies, coughing and sneezing, beverages being dispensed, flight altitude updates; and when things finally settle down, it is somewhat nice to relax.
- Well, the real question is, what difference does it make? Chipotle's got da bomb buritos, eh?
- I don't think a lot of people know or knew; however, I don't think McD's got involved as a replacement for their cash cow; McD's was an investor from 97-05, 06
The Starbucks Strategy: No Freebies, ever!
- Come Starbucks, stop being so greedy! Can I get a freebie after I've purchased, say 70 tall, non-fat lattes? My nearby Circle K will give me a freebie after I've gulped down 8 cups of java (and much less expensive)
