OK DWY, it’s my fault. I told you all to test us, challenged you to challenge us. To our credit, I did say that we were going to fix this line thing by the end of next week. We still have another week to get everything right. And in our defense, we were prepared to face an additional 50 of you yesterday (but you sent 100), and we were ready for an extra 100 today (but you sent 200).

So why did I say 2 weeks, well, because this isn’t our first dance. Here’s what happens: (1) we decimate the line – Monday, Tuesday, check, (2) more people come, uh-oh the line is back, (3) we kill the line, (4) more people come, you get the idea. Don’t worry, we’ll get to a point where we can handle the line. If we have to I’ll try to convince the Greenway to let us park 2 trucks side-by-side: a Clover wall.

Sorry, that picture isn’t from today. It’s from yesterday. Today I was too busy trying to clear the 30 sandwiches that had built up on us in less than 10 minutes even though we were going our fastest. It goes without saying that we fed more mouths at lunch today than any given day in Clover history.

We’re trying guys, hang in there, we’ll get it perfect. Think of this as an investment in your future. Look, I’m not trying to say you shouldn’t be annoyed if you had to wait too long today. I would be too. I’d be mad. I get it. We all do. I’m just saying thanks for putting up with us anyway. And know how hard we’re working at this. That staff today was sweating and putting their hearts on the line for you. And know that we’re going to come out the other side of our little 2-week campaign together with a better Clover for all.
