Panera tasty iced green teas

jackieheartsb:

There is not much I like about Panera Bread restaurants (the food tastes fairly good going down, but doesn’t settle quite right). I make an exception for the tasty iced green teas.

I used to love it until i realized it was sort of a cross between Snapple and Kool-Aid. I still order it when I am forced to go to Panera (friends), but it’s no better than a sugary soda in terms of “health” (but it is tasty).

Acting’s a good racket. And lets face it, you can’t beat it for the bread.

Supposedly:

This is an actual job application a 17-year-old boy submitted at a McDonald’s fast-food establishment in Florida – and they hired him because he was so honest and funny!

NAME: Greg Bulmash

SEX: Not yet. Still waiting for the right person.

DESIRED POSITION: Company’s President or Vice President. But seriously, whatever’s available. If I were in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying here in the first place.

DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz style severance package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.

EDUCATION: Yes.

LAST POSITION HELD: Target for middle management hostility.

SALARY: Less than I’m worth.

MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.

REASON FOR LEAVING: It sucked.

HOURS AVAILABLE TO WORK: Any.

PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?

Yes, but they’re better suited to a more intimate environment.

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER? If I had one, would I be here?

DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 50 LBS? Of what?

DO YOU HAVE A CAR?

I think the more appropriate question here would be “Do you have a car that runs?”

HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?

I may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing house Sweepstakes.

DO YOU SMOKE?

On the job no, on my breaks yes.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?

Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde super model who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.

DO YOU CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE?

Yes – Absolutely.

SIGN HERE: Aries.

Saffron Garden Mediterranean Grill (3/5)

I’m a big fan of Persian food. Of course, I am a big fan of a lot of food, but nothing seems more satisfying to me than good kabab, saffron rice and bread that’s done just right. On my first and only… (via Shawn H. on Yelp)

UPDATE: This place is out of business 🙁

Reston Kabob (4/5)

It’s not bad for Reston (the land of planned community and every franchise known to the suburban hero) but certainly does not rank 5 stars in any area. Ordering is crowded at a small counter and rushed and you stand in line directly in front of the bottled drinks, forks and napkins, etc. as people try to grab what they need. The table arrangement reminds me of eating in Chinatown (NYC). Not a bad thing for me because it’s very familiar but it is also quite crowded and noisy. The food? Other than the chicken gyro salad (that “chicken” stinks), I have had good food experiences at Reston Kabob. It’s the real deal and yes, the bread is good (although I have had much better). Pricing is a little below average for this kind of food (like Moby Dick and others), so that might make up for the crowded, poorly laid out space and “good” food quality. For Reston, this is about as good as it gets though, so save your tolls and time and try it for yourself! If I could give 3.75 stars I would, so 4 may be a little kind. (via Shawn H. on Yelp)
