This is probably the 2nd most bizarre "bandit" story and I have heard, behind the "butt bandit" of course

So it's like the Chick-Fil-A of Canadian beef?

Chick-fil-A is delicious, and has the best quality of service of any fast food restaurant I frequent.

Could be a regional thing, or I just like chicken way more than you.

The impressive thing is the service compared to other fast food places though. I don't think they've ever messed up an order, and they're so much friendlier on average that it reminds me of that town called Spectre in the movie Big Fish where everyone is so over the top friendly to the point where it's just weird.

There's little reason to be such an ass to a person who seems to be honestly giving good information with reasonable disclaimers. Just stop.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

So I had a pretty fun day today.

Been stuck in a job I hate, basically since Black Friday. Mostly sales/marketing job, could pan out if I basically hate life for 3-4 years. Started applying for trading jobs after Christmas. Flew to Chicago for interview last weekend. Flew back Tuesday morning.

Boss comes in to my office today, basically discusses how I've been distant, not into the job anymore, essentially fires me at 3PM. I get home at like 7PM, get a call at 7:30, get offered trading position in Chicago.

I was sitting in the train station despondent, not sure wtf I was doing with my life. 2 hours later, I basically get a dream job scenario (for me), and was unemployed today for a grand total of 4.5 hours. Moving to Chicago in the next 2 weeks and starting up on March 5th.
