Not Even Sugar-Coating It

| Working | November 13, 2016

(I need to reduce my sugar intake for health reasons and was looking at drink options in a café. I didn’t want a hot drink, so I was looking at the cans available, all behind a glass counter where customers couldn’t reach one. I wanted to check whether a supposed “health” drink was high in sugar.)

Me: “Hi. Do you mind if I check the nutrition information on [“Health” Drink]?”

(The guy behind the counter gets the can in question and immediately opens it and pours the drink into a glass.)

Me: “Apparently not, then.”

Guy: “What?”

Me: “I asked to see the nutrition information.”

(The guy looks annoyed and hands me the can. The drink has a ridiculous amount of sugar in it.)

Guy: “That’s [price].”

Me: “I’m sorry, I can’t drink this.”

Guy: “You ordered it. You need to pay for it.”

Me: “I didn’t order it. I asked to look at the nutrition information to see if I wanted to order it but I can’t drink this because it has over 30g of sugar in this can.”

Guy: “Like you care about eating sugar, fat b****.”

(That’s when I walked out.)
