We’ve recently heard that toast has become a thing, but unfortunately, we couldn’t find it in the data. It’s possible that specialty toast might be mixed up with the normal toast. What we did find was the rise of ramen and decline of cupcakes in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. But we all probably knew that.

Mmm toast and ramen.

Hmm.

Also during my second call with TWC, I didn’t even have to provide additional verification on my account. What the hell!?

Wow, it’s like night and day. This second service call was way more pleasant.

Omg! I’m on hold again after I was hung up on by TWC because they couldn’t wait two minutes for me to download my last bill for account verification!!
