I Am Single Handedly Ruining The Environment

Disclaimer: If you are avid about saving the environment, you might not like me after this next post. I'm sorry. I like the environment, of course, but I like hot coffee even more.

A few weeks ago, my sister and brother-in-law returned from their honeymoon in Mexico. My sis had said in an email while she was gone that she missed Tim Hortons'* coffee, among other things. So on my way to pick them up at the airport I dropped by Timmy's** to get her a coffee. "Could I please get it double-cupped?" I asked the lady at the counter.
"You can have one of these," she responded, handing me a sleeve.
"Um, is it ok if I just get it double-cupped? It's for my sister and her plane just landed, so I want it still to be hot when I get it to her," I said.
"That's fine," she said, dropping an extra cup on the counter for me, "I'm just trying to save the environment."

Dear Tim Hortons lady,

I'm sorry.

Love, Anika

PS No I'm really not.

*that link is for those of you who (to my utter horror and dismay) do not know what Tim Hortons is.

**slang for Tim Hortons

I LOOOOVVVVEEEE Tim Horton's. And also, I do love the environment, but I'm with you. Cold stuff that's supposed to be warm is no good. Just no good.

A single double-cupping is in no way going to destroy the environment. Besides, if you want to see environmental waste, hang out aruond the back of a Tim Horton's-- or ANY such establishment-- after cosing time, and just take a gander at the kinda stuff THEY throw away.
