    It Pays to Be Not Always Right

    | Austin, TX, USA | Food & Drink, Top

    (I’m the customer at a drink concession stand at a music festival. Sodas are $2 and special flavored waters (watermelon or blackberry) are $3.)

    Me: “I’ll have a Sprite.”

    Cashier: “We are all out of Sprite, sorry.”

    Me: “Dang. I’d like a [brand of flavored water], but I only have $2. I’ll have a Coke.”

    Cashier: “Would you like Blackberry or Watermelon?”

    Me: “Coke.”

    Cashier: “Blackberry or Watermelon?”

    Me: “COKE.”

    Cashier: *very slowly, with a knowing look on her face* “Blackberry or Watermelon?”

    Me: “COKE!”

    Another Cashier: *to me* “She’s trying to give you the water for the price of the soda.”

    Me: “Oh! Er, Blackberry.”

    Cashier: “There we go!”
