Tim Hortons is a mix of McDonalds and Starbucks mixed in together, but better. It's a beloved Canadian institution and is popular place to get coffee and a breakfast sandwich. When I was in Vancouver, I stopped by Tim Hortons several times because I couldn't get enough of their coffee and breakfast.Recommended for:

I was told by my Canadian-college-going friend that I simply must have Tim Horton's when I visited Vancouver. I remembered her advice, and during my quick weekend jaunt in the city, I dragged my Japanese and Norwegian travel partners there so the three of us could try what I had been told was a staple in Canadian coffee culture. I admit: I purchased the souvenir cup in order to get it filled with free joe at our visit, and cheesily trotted down the street with it. My most memorable moment was when, after waiting 10 minutes for the steaming java to cool in the 40-degree morning, I attempted to sip, burned my tongue, and spat it out on the street corner in surprise. My friends laughed until they cried, and to this day I am ribbed as the quintessential rude American: I even spit on the streets of foreign countries when I visit.

I was in line up a short time ago at this Tim Hortons. While patiently waiting my turn, I noticed this homeless guy pick up several condiments and then proceed to demand free coffee from the counter person. The guy must have been a "regular" who had worn out his welcome, as she kindly but firmly asked him leave (again). He then muttered some profanity and started to turn around.
At that point, the guy in front of me speaks up and confronts him: "Excuse Me! Did you just call her a f*cking bitch? I think you should apologize!" And after a little more grumbling, he muttered "I'm sorry" and beat a hasty retreat.
That Tim's moment elicited a round of applause and an urban lesson on how courtesy sometimes needs to be shouted out (safely).
