(I travel a lot, and due to this I have been to a lot of hotels, often the same one. This exchange happened when I had gone down to the lobby to get a soda from the soda dispenser)

Me: (Fills my cup with half rootbeer and half tea)

Stranger: That’s… a weird combination.

Me: Excuse me?

Stranger: Tea and rootbeer, I just thought it was weird that’s all.

Me: Oh! Rootbeer is too sweet for me, and the tea is quite tasteless. It just balances things out.

Stranger: Then… why not just use water opposed to tea? Wouldn’t it have the same effect?

Me: As much as I would have liked to, I have stopped here a few months ago. The water container was faulty, and once a few months before that, same problem. Better safe then sorry.

Stranger: Please, I’m sure they had fixed it by now.
(I walk back to my table which is nearby. I watch as he places his cup underneath the water. At first it seems normal but as soon as he removes it it stats flooding the grid, and pouring onto the floor)
