Insanity. http://twitter.com/#!/W_a_L_D/status/136910586947715072 That’s right. Boston Market not only reached out via my contact form thanks to Facebook, but also had the cojones to do this… I still haven’t received a reply to my email to Mr. Wakabayashi, but what now Panera Bread? What now? Clearly, this will pan out to be a bigger rivalry than Neil […]
There’s more to the story, but the headline is all that people will remember.
Something was really wrong here today, or I just had some bad karma all around my order…
…The noted lack of condiments has me even more concerned about the yellow thumbprint that was on the top of my sandwich. I had just assumed it was some of the condiment that was supposed to go on the inside. I ripped this portion out of the top of my sandwich before eating, to the bewilderment of my eye-rolling yet tolerant-to-my-neuroses wife.
So the other night while dining at Panera Bread, I was talking to my wife about guitars…
“I’m quite glad that you’re interested in the catering battle-royale! Unfortunately, I haven’t had any takers from the Panera Bread camp. In fact, I believe their policy is to ignore my emails from now on, or that I have been perhaps stifled by their in-house spam filtering system. I haven’t received so much as a ‘thanks for your interest’ or even a ‘please stop emailing us.'”
These guys are proving to be more fun than McDonald’s. I present to you a Twitter play in 5 acts, as presented by Boston Market, Panera Bread, some innocent tweeter, and W(aL)D:
Well, I haven’t done one of these in a while. One day, a phishing spam caught my eye and I had to torment them a bit. I have no idea where they get my email address. Must be bots or I’m on a list I guess. Also, I have no idea why they think I’m a catering service.
