So I walk into Panera bread for a God damned stale bear claw and a cup of Starbucks-free coffee.  And I can't help but notice, they've got a bacon souffle left on the counter.

My bacon souffle.

The fat broad two people ahead of me eyes it and I resist the urge to club her like a baby seal, and finally I'm the next one in line.  The guy in front of orders a harmless breakfast sandwich and a coffee.  I'm home.

The cashier rings him up.  "Sir", she says, "I noticed your rewards card says you get a free souffle today.  Would you like a free souffle?"

The man is stunned.  He is not sure what this "souffle" thing is.  He is not sure where he is.  Reality slips to the side of everyone until finally he says, "sure I would like a free souffle".

She hands him my souffle and he walks out without a word, looking at it like it's from outer space.

She asks if she can help me.  So I say, " I would like a bacon souffle, please".

Burn in hell, Panera,  Burn in hell.

Panera is another word for bread. So the place is calling itself "Bread Bread"?

That Guy Jeff: Weather != Climate. God, how hard is it to get that through you people's skulls? Christ, every time it gets cold everyone's all "Global warming this" and Global warming that." Sick of it.

On a serious note, we've been having record setting 80+ degree days in February. Got tons of miles in on the bike over the weekend, and it is absolutely gorgeous out. If this is what global warming has in store for us, sorry islanders, you can go to hell. I'm going to start burning oil drums in the backyard.

Yeah! A tree does not equal forest! Its not like weather is based on long term patterns that have changed. Scientists are money grubbing jerks!

Does this recursiveness give you pain?

We went when they first opened. It took them 10 minutes to figure out how NOT to put the caramized onions on the sandwich when we told them we were allergic. Seriously, they couldn't figure out how to not put them on. When we got home, we found out the spread on the bread was filled with chopped onion. We've yet to go back.

I've only been to Panera once. The menu was confusing and the food was expensive and average tasting. Selection was also limited, as far as I could tell from the looking at the menu.

I haven't ever been back.

Raising prices just seems like a vulgar display of power to me. I don't care much for their prices as it is, and now I'm far beyond driven to just look elsewhere for my grub. This "global warming" thing is just a new level of them trying to gouge your wallet.

I've been in the situation before. I ring up some stuff at one of their locations, realize it costs more than what I thought it would, and now I'm broken.

It might sound like heresy to you, but I'm becoming less inclined to eat there. Regular people might have to put up with that stuff, but I've got strength beyond strength. I just look at their doors like they were cemetery gates, and walk.

From the comments: "overprice food. good but with obamacare just killing my budget there is no money left to eat out... "

Overprice food = good

Medicine = bad
