Wow. Here we are again.
Karine used to always tell me this story about when she worked at Hardee's as a kid. Sometimes the line got really long at Hardee's and people had to stand around with their arms folded in front of them waiting for their cheeseburgers and curly fries or whatever. When they finally got to the front of the line, Karine was instructed to thank them for their patience. That way Hardee's was not in anyway admitting wrong-doing or culpability for being slow with the fast food and making people wait. Karine, as a Hardee's representative, was not sorry for anything. She did however recognize the magnanimity of the Hardee's guest and thank them for their patience. I always thought that was kind of crafty on the part of the Hardee's people.
Thank you for your patience.
