TIM HORTON'S LIKES AIR-CONDITIONING
This morning I made the mistake of popping into a Tim Horton's here in Toronto. No, the coffee was fine, that sorta-consistent beverage they extrude, but the inside temperature of that store made me think I had stepped into an outdoor Tim's during the winter.
It was so cold in there -- the specific outlet is not important -- that I could not stop shivering from the time I sat down with my used-to-be-hot coffee to when my friend, of ample insulation, and I left a couple of hours later.
("Did you think about leaving instead of shivering and whining, Barry?")
As a friend of mine said, years ago, "people tend to think of air-conditioning as refrigeration".
Maybe Tim Horton's doesn't like loitering.
