Not As Clear As Glass

| Working | May 5, 2015

(A friend and coworker of mine surprised me with a case of Coca Cola in glass bottles for my birthday, so the both of us decide to drink one with our lunch. Our manager comes in and sees us drinking them.)

Manager: “Are you two drinking beer at work?”

Coworker: “No, it’s Coke. See?”

(She holds it up so he can see the label.)

Manager: “Don’t lie to me! Coke doesn’t come in glass bottles! You’re drinking beer, aren’t you?”

Me: “But Coke does come in glass bottles! They sell them at the [Grocery Store Chain]!”

Manager: “I go to the [Grocery Store Chain] all the time and I’ve never seen them selling Coke in glass bottles!”

Me: “Okay, fine. We’re not drinking Coke; it’s ‘Nuka Cola.'”

(Nuka Cola is a radioactive soda from a video game.)

Manager: “Oh, well, why didn’t you say so? Sorry to interrupt your lunch break. Make sure one of you reorganizes the shelves in the reptile section before you get off your shift. They’re a mess.”
