MCCORMICK LELYVELD: We got to the White House, and the First Lady called us all into the East Room. There in a big circle was the resident staff, ushers, chefs and pastry chefs, and many other team members. She said, “This is the team I came in with,” referring to us.
Look where we are though. Our system allows us to choose three candidates; one from the Republican Party, one from the Democratic Party, and one Independent or Third Party candidate. In the past few weeks, we have all watched the Republican Party implode on itself.
It is too premature to speculate whether this could create a precedent within franchising, and of course not every franchise business has the resources of McDonald but it will be interesting to watch whether franchisees of other brands start to collectively demand that future changes be partially funded by franchisors.While a support to franchisees, I am a bit loathe to conclude this would be a good development for the franchise industry. Having a franchisor who continually improves the brand is a large part of the appeal of this business model, but it could turn out that franchisees hold upgrades hostage by collectively demanding financial assistance before implementing them. The McDonald issue could create a negative precedent, and other franchisors would not be lovin it..
Local IPAs are delicious, but I can only afford two rounds so he covers the rest. His birthday comes up at the same time I finally scraped up enough money to make an offer on a shitty condo that I think I can fix up. His birthday present ends up being a cake I make and a six pack of the beer we used to drink.
He would try and get through as many packs as he could until he was left with nothing. I never once saw him walk away with any cards of value. We would hold secret bets on how much he would spend doing this each time, because he was essentially just giving us money hand over fist by paying for the pack, and then selling us the contents for about 50 60% of their worth in store credit to buy more packs..
It does help that the character Ive been going for has the same no nonsense attitude as we been getting, although I would probably just make up some other reasons if that was not the case.However I was absent when LS1 came along and that sucks, but it cant be helped I guess?Then again I believe most are not that story as me, I just think GW2 has some of the best story of his genre (even with its flaws). There a lot of different ways one can play guild wars, so a variety of playstyles are represented. Just remember the part of mmorpg, so that part of the community will always have some representation, in game AND here on the subreddit..
