I’ll add to this that you can safely assume I received whatever you’re forwarding me two years ago

I love that of all the “Great Holiday Gift Ideas from Amtrak,” an on-time train is not listed


Although, if Amtrak did run in a timely fashion, I probably wouldn’t be nearly as familiar with the Penn Station Houlihan’s as I’ve become.  So there’s that.

I’d say thanks, but no thanks, however since I live my life on the Northeast Corridor, Amtrak and I are in a long-term love/hate relationship.

Actually, Wendy, I don’t want to be your pen pal

Some of you may remember that I have a bit of an adversarial relationship with Wendy’s. Well, despite lodging formal complaints and getting absolutely no response from anyone (I mean, seriously, I know Dave Thomas died 6 years ago, but is that when customer service died too?), I received a “WendyMail” today.

Thanks, but no thanks, Wendy.  The last time you sent me a coupon, I couldn’t even open it on my computer.  Also, I haven’t eaten at your establishment in 5 years, but from what I remember, your Frosties were subpar.
