Ice From The North

| Working | December 10, 2015

(I am from California, attending a conference in Georgia, and friends take me out for lunch…)

Me: *to waitress* “Is your ice tea fresh-brewed or instant?”

Waitress: “Oh, we make it fresh every morning!”

Me: “Great! I’d like an ice tea then, no sugar, no lemon.”

Waitress: *deer-in-the-headlights look on her face* “I’m sorry; they put in sugar and lemon when they make it. I’ve never had anybody ask for it without.”

Me: *laughing* “Yeah, we Northerners are weird. Okay, then, bring me a cup of hot tea and a glass of ice.”

Waitress: “Okay! That’ll work. And I’ll remember that for the next time I get a weird Northerner in here!”
