On the running side, Wednesday’s 6M and yesterday’s 5M both averaged 6:41/M. But yesterday’s was the better run because I didn’t run a stupid-fast first mile. Compare 6:12 to 6:32. I’m looking forward to leading a group run tomorrow of 6M and then 12M on Sunday. I wish you all happy running.
On the non-running side, I caught an Arby’s commercial for their roast burger. If you haven’t seen it, an Arby’s manager is comparing the competitor’s burger to Arby’s fine product. The grabber of the commercial is that one of the employees starts using the greasy competitor’s burger to slick back his hair.
And I’m left thinking. Alright, I get it, the competition’s burger is disgusting. Know what else I get, that Arby’s hiring standards are nonexistent. Seriously, Arby’s hired the kind of employee willing to use a greasy burger to fix his hair. What is that same kid going to do to my Curly fries? Thank you Arby’s for giving me a glimpse into the corporate culture there, where any warm and semi-functioning body will suffice as an employee. Go ahead, put him on the front line between friendly service and a food contamination outbreak. I’ll be there eating my curly fries and drinking my shake.
