Things to look foward to…

After my last post, I decided to write about something that doesn’t make me want to hurt Cougareat employees.

Here’s a list of things I’m looking forward to:  (in no particular order)

  1. Sav’s last killer classes Monday.  (She doesn’t like being on campus until 7.)
  2. Last week of classes.  (I’m not in them, but Sav will be happier.)
  3. Only 19 days ’til Christmas!
  4. Christmas music!  (We bought more on  The funny part is it’s all old stuff we grew up with.)
  5. Being back in school.  (If only because it means that I’ll be done sooner.  Also because then Sav won’t think I’m such a bum.)
  6. Getting a Caramel Apple Spice on our trip home for Christmas.
  7. Going to Lava Hot Springs again.
  8. Going to Cold Stone with my family.  (I must have the cinnamon bun batter ice cream again!)
  9. Eating Christmas goodies and food.
  10. The rest of my orange juice.  (There was more when I started this post.)
  11. Giving Sav here Christmas presents.
  12. Staying in Salt Lake for our anniversary and spending the day together.
  13. Not going to our ward for 2 weeks.  (To my ward: seriously guys, you need to stop spamming our email inboxes.  It only makes us hate you.)
  14. Decorating our Christmas tree tonight.
  15. Putting presents under said tree.

Well, that’s 15 good things I have coming.  Just wanted y’all (all 5 of ya) to know that I’m not a pessimist and good things do happen to me.

One of these things…

Have you tried Jamba Juice’s oatmeal?  It’s the best oatmeal I’ve ever had.  Too bad it’s organic.

However, I have a beef with either Jamba Juice or just the Jamba in the SAB on BYU campus.  Three or four times now, I’ve gotten the oatmeal.  It’s yummy and makes my tummy happy.  But the employees there do not.  Each time, I end up with far less oatmeal than I expect.

Today I asked, “Is there supposed to be less oatmeal than the pictures?”  Guy employee (who never looks happy to be there): “You’re supposed to have enough space to stir.” Um…  I don’t stir…

After I got the oatmeal, I said, “I feel skimped, because it doesn’t look like the picture.”  Girl employee (who at least looks happy to be there): “Well, that one has bananas.”  Well duh!  I’m at least that smart.

When I then directed her attention to the serving size: “Well, if it’s wetter, it will look more flat.”  Um… I don’t think that had as much to do with it as just not giving me more than two scoops.

And now the damning evidence.


What Jamba advertises (from their website):

Now that's a bowl full of oatmeal!
Right up to the rim. Just how I would like mine.



But this is what I got:

Wait...oh...yes, there's the oatmeal, barely visible.
Clearly I'm being misled. All I did is take out the spoon.



I think I’m fully justified to be bugged each time I leave–justified to think that I got less than what I just paid for.  (Especially since BYU’s Jambas never do any of the local promotions or even national promotions like the Jamba card.)  If it was only $1 like the rest of Jambas around here, I’d be ok with it.

Now comes the funny part.  I’m not actually sure I could eat more than what I’m given.  So this begs the question: is it only supposed to be a wimpy size?  Then why so expensive?  Why the overflowing pictures?  WHY????
