Dear Which Which:

November 12, 2008 - 7:41 pm Comments Off on Dear Which Which:

What I sent to Which Wich, assuming it got through their flash-based submission system.

Please, please, PLEASE design a website that’s not entirely flash-based! I want to be able to place an order over the phone and know what options I can choose, but all the possible condiments – spreads, vegetables, etc. – as well as kids menu choices are hidden in the background and impossible to read. Not only that, but the flash-based location finder scrolls past so fast that I can’t figure out which location is nearest to my house. Can’t I just enter in a zip code and have it tell me what locations are in my town? This is not a user-friendly site! We have two kids and need places that help us save time, not frustrate us. Unfortunately, Which Wich is not it. I’ve been wanting to try your sandwiches due to the good reviews I’ve been reading about them, but until I can figure out how to get them via take-out, sorry – ain’t gonna happen.

Update: Wow, that was quick! I got a response – albeit not addressing the icky flash interface, but at least I know where to get a menu if I can deal with the twitchy scroll on the location list:

Hi Dee,

Thank you for your comments through the Which Wich website.

Which Wich is constantly updating their website, so we appreciate the feedback. Our to-go and catering menus, including the condiments, are under each location as a pdf on our website.

If you email us the specific location you are looking for we can also email your the pfd of the menu.

Best WICHes!

Me: Do you ever see sounds?
Hub: Do I need to leave again?

A typical conversation at my house

Me: Where did I read that thing about beheaded people being able to communicate by blinking for a few seconds after being guillotined? It’s driving me nuts!
Hub: ….*sighs and walks away*

Why didn’t I think of that?

I’ve found myself frustrated lately because, while there are things in my life that I would like to chronicle, I would rather not share everything with the whole world. It just occurred to me that I could keep a separate journal. You know, like people did in the olden days. Wow, am I innovative.

They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

The Pink Lady does not approve.

About 5 minutes before deciding that the thing was twice as wide as it should be and unraveling it all. I went from 35 stitches wide to 18.

The scarf’s now half as wide and almost twice as long. Yay, progress!

Endless source of amusement

My seven year old is an endless source of amusement.

Last week, she managed to lose:
• Her sweater
• The shoes she wore to a birthday party
• The pants she wore to school(!) (she did come home in her Halloween costume, however)

The other day, she brought home her journal from school. One of the entries listed the three things she would bring with her if she were stranded on a desert island.
1) Her special dog.
2) Her Everything.
3) Her mom and dad.

Nice to know I made the cut.
