Een mock-facebook post van Burger King Nederland gaat viral. In de post trekt de fastfoodketen van leer tegen Bert Kooijman, “een volwassen man uit Doetinchem met een baan en een huis”, die eerst zegt dat hij geen mayo bij zijn patat wil, en vijf minuten later toch om mayo komt vragen. “Natuurlijk hebben we meteen een klacht ingediend bij Bert thuis,” aldus BKN.

A dialogue to avoid
My colleague bursts into the room with the news that another colleague will have her 21st birthday soon. "She's so young!" I lean back in my chair and think of when I was that age. "Incredible, isn't it, that we used to feel stressed already at that age." T...
