Arby's joined the band wagon

Went thru the drive thru at Arbys today, and there was the dreaded sign.
"No tomato's unless requested.."
Grrrrrr- I hate having to ask for tomato's on my sandwich or salad!

    Would you rather the price go up to save you from asking? I'll answer for you: NO.

    In January it's not really a tomato...just a reasonable facimile.

    Hello All,
    I love tomatoes. There are many foods we just expect a tomato to provided with it.
    It has been included in the price of the meal or product. If they are going to
    make us ask for it, then they should lower the price. If they are going to charge
    us more for a tomato, then they should let us know. I have been to places where
    there was an extra charge for tomatoes and I didn't know it until I paid.
    Usually, if tomatoes must be requested or if there is an extra charge, the tomatoes
    are of bad quality because there has been a bad season or a natural disaster to create
    a shortage or problems.
    I repeat...prices should be lowered if tomatoes are omitted or of a bad quality.
    Good business people factor in the ups and downs of seasons and possible problems.
    I am tired of hearing that I must pay more because of a bad season or a hurricane, and prices go up,
    but in good times, prices do not go down. It's not just tomatoes, it's everything. Prices go up
    because of a problem or disaster, but when life or nature gets normal, the prices never return
    to their prior value.
    And while January tomatoes are not July tomatoes in quality, why should I pay more for less quality?
    Those tomatoes are coming from places in the southern hemisphere where the tomatoes are starting to ripe.
    Who taught us to pay more for less quality?
    Sorry for ranting.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    Yesterday, I noticed that the tomatoe's on my roasted veggie salad that I always get at a local hangout are almost non existent. They used to give you 2 large cherry ones, cut in half. I think I got one small grape tomato cut in 1/4's.
    LOL....
    But at another place, I ask for extra tomatoe's on my chef salad, and no questions asked and no up charge either..
    Go figure.....

    I'm not so sure that what these places call tomatoes truely deserve the name. Personally I always scrape the rabbit food off or when ordering (like at Wendys) request no lettuce/tomatoe. The unseasonal weather decimated my 2nd mater crop but hope blooms afresh, this upcoming weekend I'll be starting seeds..........

    My husband brought me a Super from Arby's the other day, and the tomatoes on it were practically thin as sheets of paper. They skimped on the lettuce as well.
