Know Tim Hortons jargon when ordering at Tim Hortons
Recently, I tried explaining to the barista that I needed her to add three servings of sugar and cream each, and after using around five minutes to explain, she told me I could have just told her I wanted a Triple Triple. You can imagine the embarrassment I felt😥😪. Instead of wasting your time explaining to the barista you want 2 creams and 2 sugar in your beverage, you can just ask for a “Double Double” or “Triple Triple” if you want 3 creams and 3 sugar servings in your drink.
