Yesterday I had a free day and a hankering for a coffee and some Cinnamon Buns.
So I figured, what the heck, it's a nice day, so I gassed up the car and drove down to Tobie's Restaurant & Bakery - which is about 300 miles south of where I live.
Sound like a little over kill?
Trust me, if you've ever been to the place you'd know the drive was worth it.
People drive up from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St.Paul) for a coffee and these buns.
Big, honking caramel buns that fill a dinner plate.
And only $2.50 each!
I took the back roads and avoided the Interstate so I could have some quiet time and relax. I love driving. And I got to thinking.
Suppose Tobie's decided to sell these buns via MLM? How much would they cost?
Probably at least $10 each. Everybody in the upline has to get paid you know.
Which would take the pleasure out of eating these things knowing the money I paid was going to some mindless bozo's pockets instead of Tobies who was doing all the work making them.
