A coffee enthusiast in St. Andrews, N.B., has learned the customer may not always be right.
After complaining three times about "burnt" decaffeinated coffee at the local Tim Hortons, Jimmy Craig is now banned for life from that outlet and the one in nearby St. Stephen.
"It was like brown, burnt water," said Craig. "I almost, you know, got sick in the sink."
Craig said he voiced his concerns to the store manager and corporate office, then got a meeting with the owner, Edwin Dow.
That's when Dow served Craig with a letter banning him under the province's trespass act.
Craig has contacted a lawyer to try to get the ban overturned.
Meanwhile, he can only return to the Tim Hortons if he's on the job as a paramedic, responding to a medical emergency.
So he's brewing his own coffee at home, which, he said, is cheaper and always fresh.

Second of all, Jimmy Craig, if the coffee sucks...why do you care if they ban you from their store? Do you want to keep buying/drinking shitty coffee? Is the local Tim Hortons where girls go to get picked up by overweight middle-aged men?
I don't get it.
