People In Canada Are Taking To Twitter To Complain About How Sick And Tired They Are Of Tim Hortons

Please raise your hand if you have ever felt personally victimized by Tim Hortons.
People In Canada Are Taking To Twitter To Complain About How Sick And Tired They Are Of Tim Hortons

Recently it seems as though Canadians and the infamous Tim Hortons chain had made amends. With brand new menu items such as their 'Timmies Minis," "double double coffee" flavoured Timbits, and the return of their holiday menu, it seemed as Tims was on its way to reclaiming its once revered status in Canada.

TL;DR Below is a compilation of tweets from Canadians that are sick and tired of Tim Hortons.

We may have spoken too soon, though, as it looks like Canadians are still pretty fed up with Tim Hortons and their overall service. But you have to ask, how many times have you received your bagel burnt to a crisp (or maybe not even toasted at all)?

Although Canadians are known for being pretty forgiving and understanding, those traits don't seem to apply when we complain about our Timmies. In fact, Twitter happens to be a gold mine for complaints and rants about the once-loved restaurant chain. 

Here are just some of the more hilarious (and cringeworthy) tweets about how sick and tired people in Canada are of Tim Hortons:

@TimHortons drive thru fail: when I can leave drive thru, park, walk inside and then STILL leave building before line up even moves. Good job Timmies. Keep adding food to the menu and hiring tools. 👌

Not On The OUTSIDE.. Especially After Taking 10 Minutes

Sometimes things can get mixed up.

If you’ve ever made my coffee wrong at Tim Hortons, you’re my new enemy - Hello 2019

January 3, 2019

Is Twitter the only way to get @TimHortons to actually respond to an email/customer complaint?
Now 4 emails sent since Dec 13th, absolutely nothing back from @TimHortons

January 3, 2019

In some cases, people were complaining about typical Tim Hortons problems we have definitely all faced before...

Hey @TimHortons im over scalding myself every morning..... 😭😭😭 can we do something about these lids????

@TimHortons I go to Tim hortons almost everyday! This is what I received when I opened my toast. Burnt and inside was dry! I had driven off already so I couldn’t go back! Why must I have to check though, is this the way they sell food!? Keele and Lawrence location, Toronto

@TimHortons .. Placed my order and then the same trainee gave away our food to other custoner. So have to wait for another 10 to 15 minutes for the whole order. If you have made a mistake, own it and apologize. There was no applogies. Not very good experience. Please train staff.

December 30, 2018

Some experiences were definitely worse than others.

Can’t wait to dig into this “well prepared” @TimHortons breakfast sandwich. Before I do, I wonder who cut the English muffin and what did they use to cut it?

December 30, 2018

@TimHortons thanks yet again for screwing up my order, and having nothing to show for it!

December 27, 2018

Just going on record to say I’m boycotting all food from @TimHortons until they can train their staff efficiently enough that I can trust they will not mess up my food order. For the second time in a row - BACON goes on a BELT. #itsinthename#getittogether#hangry

The drive thru at Starbucks takes forever but at least they greet you and are pleasant vs. Tim hortons which is quicker but they mean mug you as you pull up to the window and pay them and your order might be wrong anyways

December 30, 2018

Some Canadians are even going as far as to announce their new favourite coffee chain, and it looks like Tim Hortons is on the losing end.

@TimHortons All your drive thrus in my town were designed by fucking monkeys and the locations litteraly screw other companies out of space because your drive thru patrons have this 'ME' first attitude. @Starbucks for the win!

December 30, 2018

Tim hortons is God awful - ya I'll take some stale coffee and a 6 hour old donut with attitude please 🙃 Starbucks has literally everything lol you just have to know what to order and local coffee shops are just as expensive 🤷‍♀️

December 29, 2018

Timmy’s why you guys dropping the quality on your products makes your loyal customers wanna switch to Starbucks 🙄 #bye#fail

December 29, 2018

Fast food workers want $15/hr, yet, TWO days in a row, @TimHortons workers have messed up my order. LOL. I worked in fast food; it’s not THAT difficult

December 28, 2018

Some are already past the point of forgiveness when it comes to Tim Hortons.

@TimHortons just went through the drive-thru @ my local Tim Hortons. Got my food & drink & wondered what is that burning smell? Well it's my food! Come on @TimHortons you can do better than that.

December 28, 2018

@TimHortons I just wanted to let you guys know that I don’t care how affordable your food and drinks are, due to my bad experiences in only getting my order right about 50% of the time, and the emotional resignation of the employees that you don’t pay well enough, I’m done.

December 27, 2018

Do you think Tim Hortons has past the point of redemption in the hearts of Canadians? Let us know!
