The Price Is Sprite

, , , , | Right | November 15, 2019

(At the time of this story, a two-liter bottle of soda costs roughly $0.99 at the grocery store. We have to charge more for a variety of reasons, such as not getting the volume discount from the supplier that grocery stores do, and keeping the drinks cold, etc. Many people decide against buying sodas from us due to the mark-up, and some grumble about it, but one customer stands out completely.)

Me: “How may I help you today?”

Caller: *places normal order for a pizza*

Me: “Would you like anything to drink with that?”

Caller: “Yeah… uh, how much are the two-liter bottles?”

Me: “They are $1.99.”

Caller:What?! What kind of an a**hole would pay $2 for a soda?”

Me: “…”

Caller: “I’ll take a Sprite.”

(Thanks for answering your own question, because I really didn’t know what to say to that!)
