If Life Gives You Lemonade, Demand Iced Tea

| Working | January 27, 2017

(I am the customer here. Lunch time experience at the drive-thru:)

Speaker: “What would you like to drink?”

Me: “I see you have lemonade; can you make a half-unsweetened iced tea, half lemonade?”

Speaker: *female voice* “No, I can’t do that.”

Me: “Okay, then just a medium unsweetened iced tea.”

Speaker: *male voice* “We can, but I need to charge you the higher price for a lemonade.”

Me: “No problem, just the unsweetened iced tea is fine. Medium.”

Speaker: “Your total is $[total]. Please drive forward.”

(I drive forward. Now I’m at the window.)

Young Woman: “That was a half sweet tea, half lemonade?”

Me: “No, just an unsweetened tea. I didn’t pay extra for the lemonade.”

Young Woman: “Sweet tea?”

Me: “No, UNsweetened, thanks.”

(She went off to make the drink. My meal was handed out. My drink was handed out. I drove to the stop light. I stuck the straw in the drink cup and took a swig. By my best guess, it was half lemonade and half sweet tea. Oh, well.)
