A couple of months ago I found this awesome humpback whale crochet pattern on Etsy, from seller edafedd. I fell in love instantly! He’s so unique! I’m sure there are lots of crochet dolphins out there, maybe even some orca, but who can say they have a humpback whale? I completed him quickly, and now he lives on the back of my couch.
So, yesterday afternoon Rob and I met my Mom at the mall. it was her birthday, so we wanted to get her something. First thing we did was went to David’sTea and we all got teas. Then we went to Second cup, and got mom a brownie cupcake (as her birthday cake!), as well as a cutesy cookie. Mom and I went to sit down, while Rob finished paying for the food. He joined us, and put Second Cup sleeves on our teas to be polite and hide the David’sTea logos. He also had a bag with another cookie in it, and he gives it to me. I thank him for getting me a cookie, he said he thought I bought it. So, we determine it was given to us in error, so, being the right thing to do, he takes it back. In the meantime, Mom’s got her crumbly brownie cupcake out of its wrapper, and all over a plate. She’s eating away with a fork, it was that messy. So, just as Rob gets back to the table, one of the employees from Second Cup came over and told us that we couldn’t sit there because we had drinks from somewhere else. We pointed out that we bought food from them, and she said it didn’t matter, we had to leave. Right then and there. My mom couldn’t even finish her cupcake. I think that was very rude and uncalled for. We bought their product as well, but because we also had something else with us, it vetoed their product? When we go to the mall for coffee and Rob goes to Second Cup and then meets me at StarBucks to have a seat, Starbucks never tells him to get lost. AND, we had even covered our cups with THEIR sleeves.
Needless to say, we will NEVER shop at SecondCup again. Too bad for them, because Rob was going there when he’d do a “coffee run” for work, which was at least a few times a week. And, the only product I really liked from there was the cupcakes (StarBucks makes way better coffee), but I can get those from the sourse, the Cake Box.
