Keep Your Brain On Ice

, , , , | Working | June 3, 2020

I’m ordering at a fast food restaurant.

Me: “…and a lemon-lime soda, no ice.”

It is a habit for me to order sodas without ice; I hate the way the carbonation is ruined. I know my wishes are often ignored, so I always check the drink. But this particular day, I’m lost in thought and when I get to the window to get my order, I simply can’t remember what I said.

Clerk: “Here’s your drink.”

Me: “Oh, nuts. Did I say, ‘no ice’?”

Clerk: “Yes, sir, you did.”

He handed me the drink and it was done right for a change. Thanks, dude, for getting it right even when I wasn’t sure myself.
