    Another situation that stops all work is if you give them change to make it even after they’ve punched it in the computer. They can’t do the math if it’s not on the computer.



  30. Come on dude

    matt is just trying to show off how smart he thinks he is. the problem with this whole “paying to get as little change as possible” is 1) makes matt sound like an a-hole 2) how many drive-thru workers are actually smart enough to handle this, even with the cash register calculating the change for them 3) just holds up the line when you actually make them pause 4) you don’t mess with people that cook/serve you food.

    The reason why these folks are not good at the restaurant math is because all they were taught in school was train math. So, if you ever book passage on Amtrack those folks can tell you how fast you will get to Tacoma if you leave at 7 am traveling at 57 mph.

    114- you are correct. I was at the game. Riddick was fouled and and Ford pushed Gimel to the line to shot the FTs.

    Tubby is a Joke! had 1 top 10 recruiting class…

    1 Title (credit to Pitino)

    4 #1 overall seeds in tournament… 1 Elite 8 appearance
    Got bounced by USC, UAB and Marquette (D. Wade)
    Had double digit losses last 4 years
    Last 4 years recruiting classes were full of 3-star recruits and 2 star in which he never developed.

    How is that Good???

    I think we as the fans are mad about the state of the football program where it left off last year. The offense was like watching a pee wee football team against the SEC. They couldn’t even move the ball. If we could just have hope of getting a first down this year, it will be more tolerable. With that being said, I believe the fans will remain true as always and will be in the stadium and watching them on TV every Saturday. We have endured it in the past and I don’t see it changing.

    Here’s what Happened:
    Picture it, Nashville, 1994
    Andre Riddick was fouled over the back by Dan Hall
    Travis Ford walked into the picture, you can see it on the TV
    He told Walter McCarty to take the shots instead, you can see Travis point to the line at this point
    Later in the game, a Vandy player, can’t remember who, fouls Jared P. over the back
    Gimel Martinez walks down the court with Jared and offer to shot the free throws for him because Jared had shot an air ball earlier from the foul line
    Those were the two switcheroos that happened
    They would have gotten away with it, but Travis ran his mouth about it after the game to reporters, of all people
    Pitino suspended Ford, Martinez, and Jared for the next game against TN
    McCarty and Riddick didn’t get in trouble because Rick said they were kind of innocent bystanders.
