Clear Thinking

Whenever you read or hear about an Organization “Reducing Costs”, think instead “Increasing our Firm’s Profits (at your Expense)”.

You’ll be on the right track in no time at all.


I wandered off to our second (of three) Chinatowns, Broadview and Gerrard to check out a third aquarium supply shop.

Walking along, my merry way I came across a Cheese Shop, opened this week (I was there on a Thursday), so what else could I do but buy a little bit of cheese.

The small blackboard outside says “Cheese” and other cheesy things, the window says “cheese”, but of course all I saw at first was “Vietnamese Restaurant”.

Across the street a newly opened ice-cream parlour but it got two strikes against it the minute I walked in:-

(1) It smelt of disinfectant of some kind, but not a dab of pine-o-sol or similar mopped over a toddler’s ice-cream spill, more as if it had recently hosted an industrial sprayer to do the ceilings, wall and floors.

(2) A single scoop cone was $3.75 or close, a double $4.75, and I thought “For that money I can by four litres on my way past NoFrills on the way home”.

So I walked out. I had my cheeses anyway.
