There are some things that I expect in this world: for the sun to rise, morning to be rough, and for A&W to serve breakfast until 11 a.m. So you can imagine my surprise when after patiently waiting in line, that they stopped serving breakfast at 10:50 a.m. one fateful, terrible morning.
Changing the time that breakfast is served isn’t just an inconvenience for myself. It’s something greater than that. It’s a sign that HUB A&W is meddling with the primal forces of nature. And they must atone. When your franchise is built on the theme of ‘50s nostalgia then it might be wise to be lenient when it comes to serving one of the most American things of all, bacon and eggs with a strong cup of generic coffee. Denying a student their fix of deep-fried potato and dead pig may not be the greatest injustice ever done to a University of Alberta student, but it sure as hell merits being tossed into a burlap sack.
