Shirley, You Can’t Be Serious

| Right | May 14, 2017

(I’m waiting on a lady and her son, who looks about 12 or 13.)

Me: “What would you like to drink?”

Lady: “I’ll have a diet Pepsi.”

Boy: “Um… what do you have?”

Me: “We have Pepsi products. I’ve also got some grenadine if you’d like a Shirley Temple.”

Boy: “Oh…” *blushing slightly* “Um, I’m not old enough to drink.”

(His mother snickers and I try to stifle a giggle as well.)

Me: “Grenadine is cherry syrup and a Shirley Temple is just like cherry 7-Up. Also called a kiddie cocktail.”

Boy: *looking embarrassed* “Oh…”
