My Turn column by Nick Thomas

By
From page A5 | February 20, 2013 |

EDITOR:

The “my Turn” column by Nick Thomas did not deserve publication in any form. Especially when it “knocks” many food businesses in our area with allegations by a self-admitted thief. He attacks In and Out Burger for “being just plain wrong” for calling its hamburger a “double-double” and then states it has two burger patties (double) and two slices of cheese (double).

What a brain dead idiot. He claims allegations of Subway sandwiches selling a “foot-long sub” that was found in some cases to be “11 inches long.” Then without measuring, and admittedly “anticipating,” the sandwich he just consumed might have been short, he brags about leaving $4 for a $5 sandwich.

So he stiffed them (stole) 1/5 of the price for a sandwich that he had claimed in some cases could be 1/12 short of what was claimed. So, he is a bigger thief by more than double. He probably did not pay the tax either.

Had this jerk done that to me I would have reported him for “defrauding an innkeeper” or simply stuffed 1/5 of a sandwich down his shirt (which would have been more rewarding for me). Accusing Hardees of “consumer swindle” by advertising “a $6 dollar burger” that actually costs $6.30 with tax is so off the wall this jerk does not deserve to be published in any publication.

This fool needs a career change. I will help that a little by sending this letter to every publication he claims to write for. If this was meant to be humor, it wasn’t. It was, however, an admission of intentional fraud and theft, the very thing he complains about, and a great example for our kids.

His blog says it all: “getnikt blogspot.” I’ll bet Subway would find that appropriate since they got “nicked” by the him. Please throw the bum out. There are plenty of honest, non-thieving writers to choose from.
