A somewhat humorous podcast from the past. Involves Trump and how he enjoys his steak.
I enjoyed a Subway sandwich. Notice the past tense. One a week or every ten days. Stopped consuming them 3 years ago.
There was a national sale advertised on TV. Something like 2 for 1. I do not recall specifically what the deal was. Whatever, Subway Key West in the Sears Shopping Center refused to honor the deal. Even after I politely explained it to them.
Strange, I thought. I telephoned Subway national at several different numbers. Always a recorded voice at the other end. Left a detailed message of the problem each time. Not one call returned. The situation became a “cause” with me. I wrote several memos to the national. No response again.
Finally, gave up. If Subway did not care then I did not care doing business with them any further.
In August, Subway was sold. Turns out Subway’s “discounted deals” were not mandatory on franchises. Took 3 years for me to become aware.
The new owner has said he will “force” the franchises to sell “discounted sandwiches.”
Hooray for the good guys! I shall return to Subway as a customer when I see the new program being enforced.
Busy morning yesterday. An echo test at the hospital. Stopped on the way at Date & Thyme for my morning Monkey smoothie. A quickie since I was on the way to the hospital.
Met an interesting couple. The husband came over first and asked if I was Key West Lou. He introduced himself as Mike Webber from the UK. Then his charming wife, whose name I apologize for not being able to recall at the moment, came over with “I told you it was him.”
They have read the blog for years.
I wanted to spend time with them. However, I was already close to being late for the echo test. Ergo had to make my apologies and run off.
The Webbers have visited Key West twice a year for years. Here till next wednesday. Would enjoy running into them again. They appear to be interesting people.
Philadelphia has a problem with what the City calls its annual huge Christmas tree. The City refuses to call it a Christmas tree. Refer to it as a “Holiday tree.”
Philadelphia’s elected Democrats are responsible. The City of Brotherly Love seems to be alone in the rebranding.
What Philadelphia continues doing is political correctness carried too far.
It was the Thai bar at 5 yesterday. Met with Steve, Cindy and Ellen. The ladies had spent the day on the boat and in the water.
A couple of drinks and food, together with excellent conversation, made for a good happy hour.
Tonight, The Grand at 4.
Syracuse plays Cornell at 8. I was going to watch the game at Jack Flats. However discovered this morning I may be able to get it free on Tubo. I’ll give it a shot from home.
Enjoy your day!
