Wise guy!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I've always ordered my soft drinks in a simple way, e.g. 'A Coke, please.'

Lately, though, this hasn't seemed to work. Waitresses now often respond, 'I'm sorry, we don't have Coke. We have Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, 7-Up, Hartridges, Virgin Cola, Sprite and Red Bull.'

Exhausted by listening to the long list of soft drinks, I thought I'd make life easier. So one day I simply asked the snack bar staff at a cinema for a 'dark, cold, carbonated beverage.'

The young man behind the counter smiled and asked, 'Yes sir, and would you like a long, thin, cylindrical plastic sucking device with that?'

    The answer to that is, "Yes, please!" If you can keep from laughing...

    Wow, the waiter was sure quick with a funny reply. I do know what you mean as I like to enjoy a diet Coke or Pepsi when I eat out and usually order a diet Coke and often they tell me what they have instead. . .I sometimes wonder if in reality I end up drinking a regular Coke instead of a diet one as I can taste the difference but usually don't question them. Thank you Chris for the Laugh today. Keep well and Spark. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh that's too cute! I waitress and have a lot of people make those smart remarks, I would never be bold enough to say something smart back to them though...

Have a good night!
