RE: Arby's joined the band wagon
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.
