Wow. I work for a big multinational, and my one-year passed without a mention.

It was a choice between the ninja, a womens watch, a set of rocks glasses, a globe, a USB speaker, an alarm clock, and a couple of other things. There is a site that shows the options for subsequent anniversaries but I can't find it right now.

I hit 5 years working part time at Panera Bread and got a shortwave radio

I worked there full time from 2007 til 2010. Part time from 2012 until 2018.

I got so sick of everything there. People would ask me what my favorite thing on the menu is. I just said "it all pretty much tastes like Panera to me"

This continues until there is a disseminated vaccine, currently 18 months from now.

I feel the same way about Tim Hortons' baked goods. Where I worked for five-ish years we'd get Tims in all the time. You can only eat so many of their donuts.

One of the best baked goods places in Kingston is Coffey Way. They bake everything there daily. No frozen shipped in stuff.

Tim Hortons isn't even Canadian-owned anymore.

I'm not surprised.

But I'll give the store in Kingston credit. The only place I've ever seen selling Snickerdoodle cookies.

I finally learned how to make them a few months ago. But it's still not like having someone make them for you. Or giving them away.

Never had it, don't drink the stuff. I do love their hot chocolate though.

Recently bought half a dozen of their "Smile" cookies. A good cause. Still weird to see the plexiglass/plastic barriers.
