I'm not the best at math...but

Husband and I went to Tim's for a coffee today, and it got me to thinking. The diameter? circumference? pi? radius? distance around the rim of a large cup a Tim Horton's of a large Tim Horton's coffee is about ten inches give or take an inch or two. The part of the lid you pop up to drink from is substantially smaller than the rim, lets say its half an inch.

So, how come, the seam of the cardboard cup always lines up dab smack in the middle of my drinking hole? I'm not good at math, but that seems like a lot of work for the employees at Timmie's to line up that rim just to bug me.


  1. It's a perk of the job. lol
    I miss Tim Hortons.

  2. I've never heard of Tim Horton, but our coffee place does the exact same thing. This must be an industry wide conspiracy...

  3. that's pretty hilarious. i'm not trying to remember the last time i was at tim horton's . . .

  4. I always take the lid off...otherwise it takes the coffee too long to cool off.

  5. I told ya!! COFFEE IS EVIL!
